Client acknowledges Service Provider may acquire information of Client, or Client’s customers, that Service Provider knows Client considers to be confidential and proprietary (“Client Confidential Information”). Examples may include, without limitation, customer lists, pricing, purchase records, financial records, tax records, medical records, and legal records. Service Provider will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of Client Confidential Information and will not use it for Service Provider’s own benefit or disclose it to third parties without the prior written consent of Client, except as expressly permitted herein. Service Provider may disclose Client Confidential Information to its employees, consultants, or others to perform Services for Client. This provision will not extend to information that (i) Service Provider already knew, (ii) Service Provider learns independently of Client, (iii) becomes generally available through no fault of Service Provider, or (iv) Service Provider is legally obligated to disclose. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client Confidential Information may be disclosed to the officers, directors, employees, agents, or representatives of Service Provider on a “need to know” basis for the purposes of performing its respective obligations pursuant to this Agreement.

Client acknowledges that it may acquire Service Provider’s proprietary checklists and installation/configuration procedures, and other information of a proprietary or confidential nature, which Service Provider considers confidential information (“Service Provider Confidential Information”). Client will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of Service Provider Confidential Information and will not disclose Service Provider Confidential Information to third parties without the prior written consent of Service Provider.

Client hereby expressly recognizes the expertise of Service Provider’s employees and covenants to not solicit or encourage, directly or indirectly, any of Service Provider’s employees for work not contemplated in the SOW, including without limitation (i) private use of the Service Provider employee by Client or its affiliate; (ii) making offers to the Service Provider employee in an attempt to lead the Service Provider employee from Service Provider and to Client; (iii) requesting any information regarding Service Provider or its employees that is not contemplated by the SOW and/or has not been authorized by Service Provider; (iv) attempting to engage the Service Provider employee in “side work” or “moonlighting prospects” in which the Service Provider employee would do work for Client, or one of its affiliates, outside of the scope of the SOW regardless of whether the Service Provider employee would or would not receive additional compensation not expressly stated in the SOW; (v) any and all attempts to disenfranchise the Service Provider employee from his/her employment relationship with Service Provider; and (vi) making any attempt whatsoever, in any degree, to solicit work from the Service Provider employee, either on a contractual basis, as party to a competitor of the company, or through full-time employment.

Because of Service Provider’s unique offering and the difficulty of determining actual damages associated with losing trained Service Provider Employees, the parties acknowledge that the measure of liquidated damages set forth in this Section 5 is reasonable. This provision for damages will not limit remedies against Client for any other breach of this Section 5 or from asserting any cause of action independent of it.
