3. Proprietary Information. Advisor agrees that all Inventions and other business, technical and financial information (including, without limitation, the identity of and information relating to customers or employees) Advisor develops, learns or obtains during the period over which it is providing Services constitute “Proprietary Information.” Advisor will hold in confidence and not disclose or, except in performing the Services, use any Proprietary Information. However, Advisor shall not be obligated under this paragraph with respect to information Advisor can document (i) is or becomes readily publicly available without restriction through no act or omission of Advisor, or (ii) that Advisor knew without restriction prior to its disclosure by Company (including during the performance of Services by Advisor). Upon termination and as otherwise requested by Company, Advisor will promptly return to Company all items and copies containing or embodying Proprietary Information.

5. Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time, for any reason, by giving the other party fifteen (15) days’ notice. All Sections of this Agreement except for Section 1, and any remedies for breach of this Agreement, shall survive any termination or expiration.

6. Relationship of the Parties; No Conflicts. Notwithstanding any provision hereof, for all purposes of this Agreement each party shall be and act as an independent contractor and not as a partner, joint venturer, or agent of the other and shall not bind nor attempt to bind the other to any contract.

Any attempt to do so shall be void. Company shall be free to transfer this Agreement to a third party. Any breach of this Agreement by Advisor will cause irreparable harm to Company for which damages would not be an adequate remedy, and, therefore, Company will be entitled to injunctive relief with respect thereto in addition to any other remedies. No changes or modifications or waivers to this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of v_field_governing_law_state without regard to the conflicts-of-laws provisions thereof. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees.
