Licensor warrants to Licensee that the Licensed Software will perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation for a period of ninety (90) days from the date Licensor provides notice to Licensee of completion of the installation of the Licensed Software hereunder (“Warranty Period”).

9.1. General. During the Term, each Party (the “Receiving Party”) may have access to information that the other Party (the “Disclosing Party”) considers to be confidential and/or a trade secret; this includes but is not limited information that is not generally available to the public, whether of a technical, business, or other nature and that: (a) the Receiving Party knows or has reason to know is confidential, proprietary, or trade secret information of the Disclosing Party; and/or (b) is of such a nature that the Receiving Party should reasonably understand that the Disclosing Party desires to protect such information against unrestricted disclosure (“Confidential Information”). The Parties acknowledge that the Licensed Software shall be the Confidential Information of Licensor. In addition to any other remedies available to either Party at law or equity, both Parties shall have the right to injunctive relief enjoining any action that results in a breach of this Section 9 and in order to prevent any irreparable harm that will occur to as a result of such breach. Confidential Information does not include information which (i) is rightfully known to the Receiving Party prior to the time of disclosure as evidenced by the written records of the Receiving Party, (ii) has become publicly known and made generally available to the public by the Disclosing Party, (iii) has been rightfully received by the Receiving Party from a third party who is authorized to make such disclosure and such party is not under any obligation of confidentiality to the Disclosing Party, or (iv) was independently developed without use of or reference to any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party and by employees of the Receiving Party who have had no access to such information.
9.2. Non-Disclosure. The Receiving Party will use Confidential Information only to perform its obligations under, and for the purposes of, this Agreement. The Receiving Party will not use Confidential Information for the benefit of a third party, excluding the Disclosing Party’s affiliates. The Receiving Party will maintain the confidentiality of Confidential Information in the same manner in which it protects its own information of like kind, but in no event will either Party take less than reasonable precautions to prevent the unauthorized use or disclosure of the Confidential Information. The Receiving Party is permitted to disclose Confidential Information to its employees and authorized subcontractors on a need to know basis only, provided that all such subcontractors have written confidentiality obligations to the Receiving Party which are at least as restrictive as those set forth in this Agreement. The Receiving Party will be responsible for any damages arising from any unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information. Nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to prevent the Receiving Party from disclosing any Confidential Information received hereunder pursuant to any regulatory, self-regulatory or supervisory authority having appropriate jurisdiction, any applicable law, regulation or court order, including, without limitation, the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, provided that (i) such disclosure will be limited to the minimum acceptable level of disclosure; (ii) that the Receiving Party, unless prohibited by such regulatory, self-regulatory or supervisory authority, or such law, regulation or court order, will notify the Disclosing Party of such imminent disclosure as soon as is practicable and in all events with sufficient prior notice to allow the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise to object; and (iii) that the Receiving Party will minimize or prevent such disclosure to the maximum extent allowed under applicable law, regulation or court order. The Receiving Party will promptly inform the Disclosing Party of any actual or suspected breach of the confidentiality obligations set forth in this Agreement upon becoming aware of such actual or suspected breach and agrees to reasonably cooperate with the Disclosing Party in the incident response process. Immediately upon the earlier of a Party’s request or the termination or expiration of this Agreement for any reason, the Receiving Party will: (x) stop using all of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information then in its possession not under a valid license; (y) erase or destroy all such Confidential Information residing in any computer memory or data storage apparatus; and (z) destroy or return to the Disclosing Party (in the Disclosing Party’s discretion) all such Confidential Information in tangible form.

The Licensed Product may include any of the following transformation technique(s):
- Load Time Function Randomization – a Transformation integrating in one’s build toolchain that enables load time randomization of software binary functions
- Basic Block Randomization – a Transformation that will reorganize the Licensee’s software binaries at the basic block level so that each instance has a randomized set of instruction locations.
- Stack Frame Randomization – a Transformation that will modify the size of the stack used when code is placed in memory, making it difficult for an attacker to determine the relative offset to take control of functions in memory.
- Control Flow Integrity – a Transformation that will instrument the binary of the Licensee’s Product with tags which determine whether a jump or return is a valid destination and will prevent malware from redirecting the flow of execution of a program or sequence of basic block functions.
