Each Party will disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information only to its employees and consultants who have a need to know such information in order to fulfill such Party’s obligations under the Agreement and who have executed a confidentiality agreement with the Receiving Party under which the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information is protected (as provided for herein) or who are bound by a professional code of professional conduct not to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party will be allowed to disclose the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent that such disclosure: (i) is approved in writing by the Disclosing Party; (ii) is required by law or by the order of a court or competent jurisdiction or administrative body; provided that the Receiving Party notifies the Disclosing Party in writing of such intended disclosure at least 14 calendar days prior to such intended disclosure and cooperates with the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party’s reasonable request and expense, in any lawful action to contest or limit the scope of such required disclosure; or (iii) is to any proposed acquirer of the Receiving Party’s business (in the context of a Change of Control) or any equity owner of the Receiving Party or proposed equity owner of Receiving Party; provided that such equity owner, proposed equity owner or proposed acquirer has executed a confidentiality agreement with the Receiving Party under which the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information is protected from disclosure under terms and conditions no less protective than those terms and conditions provided for in this Section 12.

12.4 Remedies. The Receiving Party acknowledges and agrees that due to the unique nature of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations under Section 12.2 and that any such breach may allow the Receiving Party or Third Parties to unfairly compete with the Disclosing Party resulting in irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party, and therefore, that upon any such breach or any threat thereof, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate injunctive or other equitable relief in addition to whatever rights or remedies it might have at law, in equity or by statute.
