On or before the Termination Date, each party will return to the other party all of that other party’s Confidential Information embodied in tangible form, and will destroy, unless otherwise agreed, all such other Confidential Information in that party’s possession.
(d) For purposes of this Section 22, “Confidential Information” means (1) business or technical information or data (oral, written, electronic or otherwise), including, without limitation, a trade secret (as defined under applicable law), of or about a party provided or made available by such party to the other party that is competitively or commercially valuable to that party and not generally known or readily available by legal means to others, and (2) information regarding the existence, content or status of the business relationship described herein. Confidential Information shall not include information which (i) at the time of disclosure, was published, known publicly, or otherwise in the public domain, (ii) after disclosure, is published, becomes known publicly, or otherwise becomes part of the public domain through no fault of the party receiving the Confidential Information, (iii) prior to the time of disclosure, is known by that receiving party or, after disclosure, is independently developed by that receiving party as evidenced by its written records, (iv) after disclosure, is made available to that receiving party in good faith by a third party who is under no obligation of confidentiality or secrecy to the party disclosing the Confidential Information, or (v) information agreed to be disclosed in accordance with Section 22 hereof.
