Information” shall mean and include, without limitation, any and all trade secrets, secret
processes, marketing data, marketing plans, marketing strategies, customer names and
addresses, prospective customer lists, data concerning Owner’s products and methods,
computer software, files and documents, and any other information of a similar nature

upon request or upon termination or expiration of the Term of this Agreement.

disclose or transfer any of the Confidential Information to any other person or entity, or utilize
any of the Confidential Information for any purpose, except in the course of services
performed under this Agreement.
7.4 Injunctive Relief in Event of Breach. Because of the unique nature of the
Confidential Information, the undersigned understands and agrees that Owner will suffer
irreparable harm in the event that Finder fails to comply with any of his obligations under
this Section 7, and that monetary damages will be inadequate to compensate Owner for
such breach. Accordingly, Finder agrees that Owner will, in addition to any other remedies
available to it at law or in equity, be entitled to injunctive relief to enforce the terms of
this Section 7.

9.1 Entire Agreement. This Agreement contains the entire agreement of the parties with
respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and replaces any oral or written
agreements heretofore entered into between the parties. This Agreement cannot be
modified, or any performance or condition waived, in whole or in part, except by a writing
signed by the party against whom enforcement of the modification or waiver is sought. The
waiver of any breach of any term or condition of this Agreement shall not be deemed to
constitute the waiver of any other breach of the same or any other term or condition.

this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be valid and effective under
applicable law. If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason

enforceability of, the remaining provisions of this Agreement, and the rights and obligations
of the parties shall be enforced to the fullest extent possible.

warranties and post-termination obligations contained in this Agreement shall survive the
expiration of the Term, or the termination, of this Agreement.
9.4 Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of
Owner and to any of its successors. This Agreement is not assignable by Finder, but shall be
binding upon and, to the extent provided for in this Agreement, inure to the benefit of
Finder’s heirs, executors, administrators and legal representatives.
9.5 Execution in Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of
counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which shall constitute one
and the same instrument.
