A disclosure of any Confidential Information by Consultant (i) in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body or (ii) as otherwise required by law shall not be considered to be a breach of this Agreement or a waiver of confidentiality for other purposes; provided, however, that Consultant shall provide prompt prior written notice thereof to Company to enable Company to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent such disclosure.
d. The obligations contained in this Section 1.2 shall survive termination of this Agreement.
