Probe.ly, Lda.’s Confidential Information includes the Services and Confidential Information of each party, includes business and marketing plans, technology and technical information, product plans and designs, and business processes disclosed by such party.

12.2	Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care) (i) not to use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of these Terms, and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party only to those of its and its affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with these Terms and who have signed confidentiality agreements with the Receiving Party containing protections no less stringent than those herein. 

12.3	Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party's cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information.
