The term “Confidential Information” means any business, technical or other information disclosed by one party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) that is either designated as confidential or proprietary at the time of disclosure or which should be reasonably understood to be proprietary or confidential based on the nature of the information disclosed or circumstances of disclosure, and for the avoidance of doubt shall include (i) any and all trade secrets, including, without limitation, any information relating to the operations or business of the Disclosing Party that are not generally known by the public; (ii) any information relating to the Intellectual Property of the Disclosing Party; and (iii) any unannounced products or services of the Disclosing Party.

A disclosure pursuant to law or government authority order that meets the requirements of this paragraph will be deemed an authorized disclosure.
