a.        As used herein, “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. 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 known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; (iii) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party; or (iv) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party.

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 for any or no reason, 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, however 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.


10.      Indemnity.  Subject to the remainder of this Section 10, Imperva will 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 awarded against End User to the third party making such Infringement Claim, by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed in settlement; provided that End User (1) promptly notifies Imperva of any and all threats, claims and proceedings of 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 thereof. The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to Software and SaaS Services or portions or components thereof, (i) that are modified by any party other than Imperva or its authorized agents after delivery by Imperva, (ii) combined with other products, processes or materials, where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (iii) where End User continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof and modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement have been made available to End User, 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, Imperva at its discretion, will 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 Software or terminate the SaaS Services (as the case may be) and upon such return or termination, refund to End User the amount of 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 licenses to Software, or (z) for the unused portion of the term remaining as of the effective date of termination, with respect to term licenses to Software or SaaS Services.  End User will defend, indemnify and hold Imperva harmless against any claims, damages settlements and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) excluded from Imperva’s indemnity obligations in (i) – (iv) above.  THIS SECTION SETS FORTH IMPERVA’S SOLE OBLIGATION AND END USER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IN THE EVENT OF VIOLATION OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS.

11.      Term and Termination.

a.        The term of this Agreement will commence upon the Effective Date and will continue in effect for such time as End User continues to have the right to access the Products.  SaaS Services, and/or Support for Software and Appliances will automatically renew for additional annual terms, at the end of the applicable annual term, unless either party gives the other at least thirty (30) days’ notice of non-renewal prior to the end of the then-current term.

b.        Either party may terminate this Agreement due to a material breach of this Agreement by the other party if such material breach remains uncured for a period of thirty (30) days following receipt of written notice by the breaching party; provided that Imperva may terminate this Agreement and/or all licenses granted to End User hereunder immediately upon written notice to End User if End User breaches any provision of Section 4 (License & Restrictions), Section 5 (Additional Terms for Services) or Section 8 (Confidentiality).

Termination shall not relieve End User of the obligation to pay any fees accrued or payable to Imperva prior to the effective date of expiration or termination. The following sections shall survive termination of this Agreement: Sections 2, 4(c), 4(d), 4(f), 6(b), and 8-13.
