a. As used in this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means all confidential and proprietary information of a party (“Disclosing Party”) disclosed to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure. Imperva’s Confidential Information includes, without limitation, the Products, their performance (including any benchmarking information) and Imperva’s pricing of the Products and Services. Confidential Information shall not include any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (ii) was rightfully known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party (as can be demonstrated by reasonable supporting evidence); (iii) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without access of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information or any breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party (as can be demonstrated by reasonable supporting evidence); or (iv) is received from a third party which is not under an obligation of confidence or non-use with respect to such information and without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party (as can be demonstrated by reasonable supporting evidence).
b. The Receiving Party agrees that it shall (i) use Confidential Information for the sole purpose of exercising or enforcing its rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement, (ii) divulge and allow access to Confidential Information only to those of its employees, directors, independent consultants or agents who have a need to know such Confidential Information and who are bound by professional duty or in writing (in advance) to confidentiality and non-use obligations at least as protective of such information as this Agreement, and (iii) not disclose any Confidential Information to any third party except as described in the foregoing sub-clause (ii). The Receiving Party shall notify and cooperate with the Disclosing Party immediately upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to comply with an order from a court of competent jurisdiction or with a mandatory requirement of a governing regulatory body, provided such party, to the extent permitted by law and as soon as reasonably practicable under the circumstances, informs the Disclosing Party and allows the Disclosing Party the opportunity to object to the disclosure order or to take action to preserve the confidentiality of the information. The Receiving Party shall cooperate with the Disclosing Party in such party’s reasonable efforts to limit the disclosure of the information.
c. Upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party shall (i) immediately cease all use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, and (ii) if requested by the Disclosing Party, either promptly destroy or return all Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party; provided, that the Receiving Party may retain a reasonable number of copies of the Confidential Information (and any materials embedding the same) for the sole purposes of satisfying legal or regulatory requirements regarding record and data retention that the Receiving Party is obligated to comply with, enforcing this Agreement and/or archiving consistent with good business practices. For the avoidance of doubt, such copies remain subject to the confidentiality and restricted use provisions of this Agreement.
d. If the Receiving Party discloses or uses (or threatens to disclose or use) any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party in breach of this Section 8, the Disclosing Party shall have the right, in addition to any other remedies available to it, to seek injunctive relief to enjoin such acts, it being specifically acknowledged by the parties that any other available remedies are inadequate.
9. Liability Limitation.
A. IN NO EVENT SHALL IMPERVA’S (AND ITS PARTNERS’ OR SUPPLIERS’) TOTAL AND AGGREGATE LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR THIS AGREEMENT EXCEED THE TOTAL VALUE OF AMOUNTS PAID BY END USER TO IMPERVA FOR THE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY IN RESPECT OF THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE CLAIM, WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY ARISES IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
B. IN NO EVENT SHALL IMPERVA (OR ITS PARTNERS’ OR SUPPLIERS’) HAVE ANY LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCTS, SERVICES OR THIS AGREEMENT TO THE END USER FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR REVENUES, LOSS OF DATA OR USE, GOODWILL, REPUTATION, INTERRUPTION OF THE SERVICES, COSTS OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES, OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES HOWEVER CAUSED AND, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER OR NOT THE PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.

IMPERVA WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES ON AN ECONOMICALLY REASONABLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
D. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT EXCLUDES OR LIMITS EITHER PARTY’S LIABILITY (I) FOR FRAUD, (II) FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY CAUSED BY ITS NEGLIGENCE OR THAT OF ITS EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS OR SUBCONTRACTORS, OR (III) TO THE EXTENT SUCH LIABILITY CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY LAW.
Subject to the remainder of this Section 10, Imperva shall defend End User against any third party claim that the Software as delivered or SaaS Services as provided infringe a U.S. patent or any copyright, or misappropriates any third party trade secrets (“Infringement Claim”) and indemnify End User from the resulting costs and damages finally awarded against End User to the third party making such Infringement Claim, by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to in a settlement; provided that End User (1) promptly notifies Imperva of any and all threats, claims and proceedings involving such Infringement Claim, (2) gives reasonable assistance in response to Imperva’s request for assistance, and (3) grants Imperva sole control over defense and settlement of the Infringement Claim. The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to any Infringement Claim or associated costs or damages arising out of or in connection with the Software and SaaS Services or portions or components: (i) that are modified by any party other than Imperva or its authorized agents, (ii) that are combined with other products, services, processes, software, content, data or materials, where the alleged infringement relates to such combination or such other products, services, processes, software, content, data or materials; (iii) where modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement have been made available to End User, and End User continues the allegedly infringing activity after being notified of it by Imperva, and/or (iv) where End User’s use of such Software or SaaS Services is not strictly in accordance with this Agreement. In the event that Software and/or SaaS Services is held to or believed by Imperva to infringe or misappropriate any intellectual property rights of a third party, Imperva at its discretion, shall have the option to (A) modify the allegedly infringing Software or SaaS Services to be non-infringing, (B) obtain for End User a license to continue using the Software or SaaS Services, or (C) request the return of the infringing Software or terminate the infringing SaaS Services (as the case may be) and upon such return or termination, refund to End User the amount of license fees paid for such infringing Software and SaaS Services, either (y) depreciated on a straight-line basis over a three (3) year period, with respect to perpetual Software licenses, or (z) for the unused, prepaid portion of the term remaining as of the effective date of termination, with respect to subscription licenses to Software or SaaS Services. End User shall defend, indemnify and hold Imperva and its subsidiaries and their respective directors, officers, employees and licensors harmless against any claims, damages, settlements and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that are excluded from Imperva’s indemnity obligations in (i) – (iv) above. THIS SECTION SETS OUT IMPERVA’S SOLE OBLIGATION AND END USER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IN THE EVENT OF AN INFRINGEMENT CLAIM AND RELATED VIOLATIONS OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS.
