    Agreement and of the Independent Recipient Agreement.
    5.2. The Recipient’s duty to hold the Confidential Information in confidence shall remain in

  4. REMEDIES

    7.1. In the event that the Recipient is required in a civil, criminal or regulatory proceeding to
    disclose any part of the Confidential Information, the Recipient will give to the Developer prompt

    waive the Recipient’s compliance with the provisions of this Agreement in regards to the request.
    7.2. If the Recipient loses or makes unauthorized disclosure of any of the Confidential
    Information, the Recipient will immediately notify the Developer and take all reasonable steps
    necessary to retrieve the lost or improperly disclosed Confidential Information.
