The Company's Confidential Information is the Company's property and will not be disclosed to third parties during or after the term of this Agreement without the written consent of an officer of the Company, except on a need-to-know basis, and then only upon receipt of a like undertaking from the recipient, in writing, to protect the confidentiality of the Company's Confidential Information from such third party.
RCTA agrees to only request from the Company information necessary to carry out services requested by the Company. Such information shall not be recorded, reproduced, or stored for superfluous reasons. This prohibition affects both hard-copy data on any electronic, magnetic, analogue, or digital medium. Under no circumstances may it disclose such data to third parties without written authorization from the Company, even merely for safekeeping.
RCTA has established technical and organizational processes to guarantee data security and prevent the alteration, loss, and unauthorized processing or access of the Company's Confidential Information. These steps refer to the files, processing centers, premises, equipment, systems, programs, and people involved in processing. The Company shall be notified immediately upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information or any other breach of this agreement, and RCTA will cooperate in every reasonable way to help regain possession of the Confidential Information and prevent its further unauthorized use or disclosure.
Should Confidential Information be supoenaed, RCTA will promptly advise the Company of its receipt of such process, where it is lawful to make such disclosure, in order to provide the Company with the opportunity to contest production. This obligation to retain the Confidentiality of the Company's financial information will terminate when the Company makes the same publicly available.
