7. INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. If notified promptly in writing of any action (and all prior claims relating thereto) brought against Customer alleging that Customer's use of Appliance Subscription Service(s)infringes a United States patent, copyright or other proprietary right, DocuSign will defend such action at its expense and will pay the costs and damages awarded against Customer in such action, provided that (i) such claim of infringement arises solely from use of Appliance Subscription Service(s) itself, and not as a consequence of Appliance Subscription Service(s) combination with any other products or technology, and (ii) DocuSign shall have sole control of the defense of any such action and all negotiations for its settlement or compromise.

All limitations and exclusions of DocuSign’s liability under this agreement, including without limitation the limitations and exclusions for breach of warranty and for infringement, shall extend to DocuSign’s affiliated companies, subsidiaries, subcontractors and suppliers.
9.1 “Confidential Information” means any trade secrets or other information of DocuSign or Customer, whether of a technical, business, or other nature (such as DocuSign's software), that is disclosed to the other party (the “Recipient”) and that is marked “confidential,” or, whether or not marked, that a reasonable person would understand to be confidential given the circumstances of the disclosure. Confidential Information does not include any information that: (a) was known to Recipient before receiving it from the disclosing party; (b) is independently developed by Recipient without use of or reference to any Confidential Information of the disclosing party; (c) is acquired by Recipient from another source that did not receive it in confidence from the disclosing party to this Agreement; or (d) is or becomes part of the public domain through no fault or action of Recipient.
9.2 Restricted Use and Nondisclosure. During and after the Term, Recipient will: (a) use the Confidential Information of the disclosing party solely for the purpose for which it is provided; (b) not disclose such Confidential Information to a third party, except on a need-to-know basis to its lawyers, auditors and consultants who are under confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as contained herein; and (c) protect such Confidential Information from unauthorised use and disclosure to the same extent (but using no less than a reasonable degree of care) that it protects its own Confidential Information of a similar nature.
9.3 Required Disclosure. If Recipient is required by law to disclose Confidential Information of the disclosing party or the terms of this Agreement, Recipient will give prompt written notice to the disclosing party before making the disclosure, unless prohibited from doing so by the legal or administrative process, and assist the disclosing party to obtain where reasonably available, an order protecting the Confidential Information from public disclosure.
9.4 Ownership. Recipient acknowledges that, as between the parties, all Confidential Information it receives from the disclosing party, including all copies thereof in Recipient’s possession or control, in any media, is proprietary to and exclusively owned by the disclosing party. Nothing in this Agreement grants Recipient any right, title or interest in or to any of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. Recipient’s incorporation of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information into any of its own materials will not render Confidential Information non-confidential.
9.5 Remedies. Recipient acknowledges that any actual or threatened breach of this Section 9 may cause irreparable, non-monetary injury to the disclosing party, the extent of which may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, the disclosing party is entitled to (but not required to) seek injunctive relief in addition to all remedies available to the disclosing party at law and/or in equity, to prevent or mitigate any breaches of this Agreement or damages that may otherwise result from such breaches. Absent written consent of the disclosing party to the disclosure, the Recipient, in the case of a breach of this Section 9, has the burden of proving that the disclosing party’s Confidential Information is not, or is no longer, confidential or a trade secret and that the disclosure does not otherwise violate this Section 9.
9.6 Existing Obligations. The obligations in this Section 9 are in addition to, and supplement, each party’s obligations of confidentiality under applicable law and under any nondisclosure or other agreement between the parties.
