For the purposes of these terms, Confidential Information includes any information labeled as such or which a reasonable person would understand to be confidential, including user identification codes, logins, passwords, and Service Data. Confidential Information does not include information that is publicly known, obtained from a third party without breach of confidentiality, or required by law to be disclosed.
Both parties are obligated to protect the other’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure with no less than reasonable care. Each party may only use the other’s Confidential Information for the purposes of these terms and may disclose it only to employees, representatives, and agents who have a need to know and are bound to maintain confidentiality. Impanix and its affiliates may access or disclose information about you or your account, including Service Data, for legal advice or to prevent infringement of proprietary rights, with prior notification to you if it will not harm their interests.
