Confidential and Proprietary Information.  

 

In connection with the Agreement, each Party (a “Disclosing Party”) may disclose its confidential information to the other Party (a “Receiving Party”).

Obligations.

 

A Receiving Party shall not use a Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information except for the purposes of, or as otherwise explicitly permitted by, the Agreement. A Receiving Party shall use commercially reasonable measures to protect and keep secure the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party. Further, a Receiving Party shall not disclose to a third party the Confidential Information of a Disclosing Party, except where such disclosure is made in connection with the Agreement; and such third party is subject to confidentiality obligations similar to those set forth herein. The obligations described in this paragraph shall survive until three (3) years after the termination of the Agreement, except with respect to trade secrets, which obligations shall continue in perpetuity.

 

Residual Use.

 

Notwithstanding anything else to the contrary, GumGum Sports may, during the Term of the Agreement and thereafter, retain and use the results of any measured exposure for any and all purposes of maintaining, analysing, providing or improving the Services or GumGum Sports’ other services and offerings, so long as GumGum Sports does not violate its non-disclosure obligations above as part of such process.

 

No Rights of Association.

Each Party is responsible for ensuring that it has obtained all necessary end user consents from all consumers as required under applicable data protection laws. 

This Agreement is between the covered business and the service provider and includes certain representations which state that the service provider will not retain, use, or disclose the personal information for any purpose other than for the specific purpose of performing the services set forth in the contract. We each agree to limit the collection, sale, or use of the personal information disclosed except as necessary to perform the “business purpose” for which the service provider was retained. In addition, each party must represent that they have read and understand the CCPA’s requirements.
