1. Confidentiality

Subject to the foregoing: (i) Confidential Information of the website includes, but is not limited to, the sources from which it obtains survey respondents, and the methods by which it obtains survey respondents; and Confidential Information of either party includes, but is not limited to, technical or non-technical data, a formula, pattern, compilation, program, device, method, technique, drawing, process, financial data, or list of actual or potential customers or suppliers, the advertisement before publication, and the terms of the Request. Confidential Information does not include information that: (i) has been independently developed by the receiving party without access to the other party’s Confidential Information; (ii) has become publicly known through no breach of this Section by the receiving party; (iii) has been rightfully received from a third party authorized to make such disclosure; (iv) has been approved for release in writing by the disclosing party; or (v) is required to be disclosed by a competent legal or governmental authority. At the request of the disclosing party, the receiving party shall return all of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information to the disclosing party.

2. Warranty; Disclaimer
