CONFIDENTIALITY AND DATA PRIVACY
- Confidential Information. The term “Confidential Information” means Standard Personal Information, internal policies and procedures of a party and all other non-public information that a reasonable person should understand to be confidential due to its nature and the circumstances in which it was disclosed and that is disclosed by or on behalf of either party (“Disclosing Party”) to the other party (“Receiving Party”), whether such information is disclosed before or after the Effective Date. “Confidential Information” excludes information that (i) was in the public domain prior to the time of disclosure; (ii) enters the public domain after disclosure through no action or inaction of the Receiving Party; (iii) is already known by the Receiving Party at the time of disclosure; (iv) is obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without restriction; or (v) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in these Terms and Conditions, the Receiving Party shall not disclose (including, without limitation, distribute, transmit or transfer) or use the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party or any portion thereof without the prior written consent of Disclosing Party except for the purpose of exercising its rights or performing its obligations under these Terms and Conditions. The Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information to its employees, consultants, and agents who are bound by obligations of confidentiality no less protective than those set forth in these Terms and Conditions and Receiving Party shall be responsible for any unauthorized disclosure of any Confidential Information by such persons as if Receiving Party had made such unauthorized disclosure itself. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information to the extent required by law so long as the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prompt written notice prior to the disclosure and reasonable assistance in limiting disclosure or obtaining a protective order. OnSolve may also disclose these Terms and Conditions to actual and potential investors and funding sources who agree to hold it in confidence. The Receiving Party agrees to take steps designed to protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that are substantially similar to those it takes to protect its own proprietary information (but not less than reasonable care) from unauthorized disclosure. Receiving Party shall promptly notify the Disclosing Party if the Receiving Party becomes aware of any misuse or unauthorized disclosure of Confidential Information. Upon any termination or expiration of these Terms and Conditions, and after a minimum ninety (90) day holding period, the Receiving Party will destroy or permanently obfuscate all of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in its possession.

Either party shall notify the other party within 72 hours in relation to the receipt of any complaint, notice, or communication received from any regulatory authority or individual which relates directly or indirectly to the processing of the Standard Personal Information or to either party’s compliance with Applicable Law. Depending on the location of the Customer and its Users, the following provisions may also apply:

For purposes of the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), Customer acknowledges and agrees that OnSolve is a “service provider” as defined in the CCPA and its regulations and is receiving the Standard Personal Information for a business purpose.

If any consumer (as defined under the CCPA) sends a request to exercise rights under the CCPA to OnSolve, OnSolve shall refer the consumer to the Customer and inform the consumer that the request cannot be acted upon because the request has been sent to a service provider.
- EEA, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. This clause shall apply if Customer has Users located in any of the European Economic Area, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
