(c) Proprietary Information.
(i) Contractor agrees to retain in confidence all information relating to XXX LLC, including, but
not limited to, any of XXX LLC proprietary information, technical data, trade secrets, know-
how, research, product plans, products, services, works of original authorship, photographs,
negatives, digital images, software, computer programs, ideas, research, developments,
inventions (whether or not patentable), processes, formulas, technology, designs, drawings,

any information that: (A) was in or entered the public domain through no fault of Contractor and
not in violation of this Agreement; or (B) is disclosed to Contractor by a third party legally

provide XXX  LLC with prompt written notice of such request or requirement in order to enable
XXX LLC (i) to seek an appropriate protective order or other remedy, (ii) to consult with
Contractor with respect to XXX LLC taking steps to resist or narrow the scope of such request
or (iii) to waive compliance, in whole or in part, with the terms of this Agreement. In the event
that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, or XXX LLC waives compliance, in
whole or in part, with the terms of this Agreement, Contactor shall use commercially reasonable
efforts to disclose only that portion of the Proprietary Information that is legally required to be
disclosed and to ensure that all Proprietary Information that is so disclosed will be accorded
confidential treatment. All right, title and interest in and to the Proprietary Information will remain

Contractor any rights to or license under the Proprietary Information or under any related patent,
patent application, trademark, copyright, know-how, or other intellectual property of XXX LLC.

(ii) Nature of Proprietary Information. Contractor acknowledges and agrees that the Proprietary
Information protected by this Agreement is of a special, unique, unusual, extraordinary and
intellectual character that money damages would not be sufficient to avoid or compensate for

the unauthorized use or disclosure of the Proprietary Information or the breach of the covenants
herein; and that specific performance, injunctive relief, and other equitable relief would be
appropriate to prevent any actual or threatened use or disclosure of the Proprietary Information
or breach of the covenants herein. Contractor also acknowledges that the interests of XXX
LLC in and to its Proprietary Information may be irreparably injured by disclosure of such
Proprietary Information. The remedies stated above may be pursued in addition to any other
remedies available at law or in equity for breach of this Agreement, and the Contractor agrees
to waive any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond or other security in connection
with such remedy. Should litigation be instituted to enforce any provision hereof, the prevailing
party will be entitled to recover all costs, including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees, cost
of investigation and cost of settlement.
(iii) Return of Proprietary Information. XXX LLC may elect at any time to terminate further
access to its Proprietary Information. Upon request, Contractor will return to XXX LLC all
Proprietary Information in any form and promptly destroy any and all material or information
derived from the Proprietary Information, including any copies, electronic embodiments and
notes thereof.
(iv) Non-Solicitation. During the Term and for one (1) year thereafter, Contractor shall not
encourage or solicit any employee, independent contractor, vendor, or client of XXX LLC to
