C. BASIS OF THE BARGAIN. The parties agree that the limitations of liability set forth in this Section shall survive and continue in full force and effect despite any failure of consideration or of an exclusive remedy. The parties acknowledge that the prices have been set and the Agreement entered into in reliance upon these limitations of liability and that all such limitations form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties.
A. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. During the term of this Agreement, each party (the “Disclosing Party”) may provide the other party (the “Receiving Party”) with certain information regarding the Disclosing Party’s business, technology, products, or services or other confidential or proprietary information that would reasonably be considered confidential to Disclosing Party (collectively, “Confidential Information”). Subject to Section 3(b), all Subscriber Data will be considered the Confidential Information of Subscriber.
B. PROTECTION OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. The Receiving Party agrees that it will not use or disclose to any third party any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, except as expressly permitted under this Agreement. The Receiving Party will limit access to the Confidential Information to Authorized Users (with respect to Subscriber) or to those employees who have a need to know, who have confidentiality obligations no less restrictive than those set forth herein, and who have been informed of the confidential nature of such information (with respect to Via TRM). In addition, the Receiving Party will protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that it protects its own proprietary information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care. At the Disclosing Party’s request or upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will return to the Disclosing Party or destroy (or permanently erase in the case of electronic files) all copies of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party does not have a continuing right to use under this Agreement, and the Receiving Party shall provide to the Disclosing Party a written affidavit certifying compliance with this sentence. During the term of this Agreement and thereafter, Via TRM shall not disclose or use for the benefit of other than Subscriber any confidential information, proprietary information or Restricted Data disclosed to Via TRM as a result of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, the term "Restricted Data" shall include, without limitation: (i) confidential or proprietary information; (ii) any Social Security Numbers; (iii) [intentionally deleted]; (iv) any Customer Information, as that term is defined in 16 C.F.R. § 314, as amended, of the Gramm Leach Bliley Safeguards Rule; (v) any information contained in any Education Records, as that term is defined in 34 C.F.R. §99.3, as amended, of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations; and (vi) any information protected by any other applicable state or federal law imposing similar privacy or security obligations. Via TRM represents and warrants that it has and maintains a written comprehensive information security programme containing appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards for the security and protection of Restricted Data. Via TRM further represents and warrants that its security programme is periodically reviewed and appropriate updates are implemented to address any gaps identified in its security programme. Via TRM agrees to make its security policies and procedures available to Subscriber upon reasonable request. Via TRM expressly agrees to: i. Protect the security and confidentiality of Restricted Data it receives or accesses in accordance with its information security programme and this Agreement. ii. Limit access to Restricted Data to those employees who have a legitimate business need to know the information. iii. Require all of its subcontractors and agents that receive, use or have access to Restricted Data to agree to implement reasonable and appropriate security safeguards to protect it and to agree in writing to the confidentiality and security requirements of this Agreement. iv. Via TRM represents and warrants that it will not use any of Subscriber’s Restricted Data for any purpose other than those permitted purposes set forth in this Agreement. v. At the completion of this Agreement, Via TRM will physically or electronically destroy beyond all ability to recover any and all Restricted Data provided to them. This includes any and all copies of the data such as backup copies created at any Via TRM site.
C. EXCEPTIONS. The confidentiality obligations set forth in this section will not apply to any information that (i) becomes generally available to the public through no fault of the Receiving Party; (ii) is lawfully provided to the Receiving Party by a third party free of any confidentiality duties or obligations; (iii) was already known to the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure; or (iv) the Receiving Party can prove, by clear and convincing evidence, was independently developed by employees and contractors of the Receiving Party who had no access to the Confidential Information. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is necessary for the Receiving Party to enforce its rights under this Agreement or is required by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that the Receiving Party promptly notifies the Disclosing Party in writing of such required disclosure and cooperates with the Disclosing Party if the Disclosing Party seeks an appropriate protective order.
D. SYSTEM USE INFORMATION. Via TRM may use and disclose, in its discretion, any aggregated and de-identified information regarding Subscriber’s use of the Services or included in Subscriber’s accounts. Any disclosure of such information will not identify Subscriber or any specific use by Subscriber. Such information will include, for example, failure rates for a specific type of equipment across all Via TRM subscribers.
A. BY Via TRM. Via TRM will (i) defend, or at its option settle, any suit filed by a third party against Subscriber (a “Suit”) to the extent such Suit claims that Subscriber’s use of the Service as permitted in this Agreement constitutes Subscriber’s infringement or misappropriation by Subscriber of a third party’s intellectual property rights; and (ii) pay (1) any final judgment or award directly resulting from such Suit or (2) those damages agree to by Via TRM in a monetary settlement of such Suit. If any portion of the Services becomes, or in Via TRM’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement, Via TRM may, at Via TRM’s option: (A) procure for Subscriber the right to continue using the Services; (B) replace the Services with non-infringing software or services which do not materially impair the functionality of the Software or the Services; (C) modify the Services so that it becomes non-infringing; or (D) terminate this Agreement and refund any fees actually paid by Subscriber to Via TRM for the remainder of the term then in effect, and upon such termination, Subscriber will immediately cease all use of the Services.

This subsection states the sole and exclusive remedy of Subscriber and the entire liability of Via TRM, or any of the officers, directors, employees, shareholders, contractors or representatives of the foregoing, for infringement claims and actions.
B. BY SUBSCRIBER. Subscriber will defend at its expense any suit brought against Via TRM, and will pay any settlement Subscriber makes or approves, or any damages finally awarded in such suit, insofar as such suit is based on a claim arising out of or relating to Subscriber’s breach or alleged breach of any of Subscriber’s representations or warranties herein.
C. PROCEDURE. The indemnifying party’s obligations as set forth above are expressly conditioned upon each of the foregoing: (i) the indemnified party shall promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any threatened or actual claim or suit; (ii) the indemnifying party shall have sole control of the defense or settlement of any claim or suit; and (iii) the indemnified party shall cooperate with the indemnifying party to facilitate the settlement or defense of any claim or suit.
Via TRM may cancel, suspend or block your use of the Services without notice if there has been a breach of this Agreement by Subscriber. Subscriber’s right to use the Services will end once Subscriber’s Account has been terminated; provided, however, that commencing as of the date of termination of this Agreement for Client Subscribers and continuing for a period of fourteen (14) days thereafter, Client Subscriber may access and use the Services solely for the purpose of exporting Subscriber Content (the “Transition Period”). Following the Transition Period, any data that Subscriber may have stored on the Services, including Subscriber Content, will be destroyed or permanently deleted by Via TRM, unless Via TRM is required to retain it by law.
