5. Confidential Information.

As used herein, “Confidential Information” means non-public information that the party disclosing the information designates at the time of disclosure as being confidential, or, if disclosed orally or visually, is identified as such prior to disclosure, or which, under the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, the receiving party knows or has reason to know should be treated as confidential without the need to be marked as such. Without limiting the foregoing, Confidential Information shall include any information regarding a party’s financial condition, business opportunities, plans for development of future products, unreleased versions of products, know-how, technology, customer information, and customer data.

For the avoidance of doubt, metadata derived from Customer Data shall not be deemed Your Confidential Information.
(b) Non-Disclosure. The receiving party shall not disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to any third party and may only use the disclosing party’s Confidential Information for the intended business purpose related to these TOU and for the benefit of the disclosing party.

Each receiving party agrees to promptly notify the disclosing party upon learning of any unauthorized disclosure of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information and shall provide reasonable assistance to the disclosing party to remedy and contain such breach. In connection therewith, You agree to provide any such notice to GoodData at The foregoing notwithstanding, a receiving party may disclose the other party’s Confidential Information if the information is required by law to be disclosed in response to a valid order of a court of competent jurisdiction or authorized government agency, provided that the receiving party provides the disclosing party prompt written notice, if legally permitted to allow the disclosing party a reasonable opportunity to seek a protective order prior to disclosure, at the disclosing party’s cost and expense.
