WHEREAS, the Parties hereto desire to enter into a confidentiality arrangement whereby parties shall share information; WHEREAS, the Parties acknowledge that any information or data, whether printed, written, oral or electronically stored or reproduced and whether provided in response to specific inquiry or voluntarily provided, including but not limited to the identity of PCN’s customers, PCN's methods of doing business, and financial information regarding PCN’s customer contracts, both detailed information and the basic nature of the information is confidential, and that both Parties intend that such information remain confidential ("Confidential Material"); WHEREAS Parties have received information from each other in connection with the Organization Access Agreement ("Agreement") between the parties. As a condition to the Parties furnishing such information, parties are requiring that each party agree, as set forth below, to treat confidentially such information and any other information that the parties or any subsidiary or the agents or representatives of any of them furnish, whether furnished before or after the date of this Agreement, and all notes, analyses, compilations, studies and other documents, whether prepared by either party or others, which contain or otherwise reflect such information. WHEREAS The term "Confidential Material" does not include information which (i) becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a disclosure by party or parties’ subsidiaries or agents, (ii) was rightfully available to party on a non-confidential basis from a source other than said parties, provided that such source is not bound by a confidentiality agreement with any of said parties or otherwise prohibited from transmitting the information to party by a contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation. NOW THEREFORE, Without the written prior consent of the party, party will not, and will direct your directors, agents and employees who have access to the Confidential Materials, not to, disclose to any person who is not a direct participant in the Organization Access Agreement any of the Confidential Materials. The term "person" as used in this Agreement shall be broadly interpreted to include, without limitation, any corporation, company, partnership, trust or individual. Both parties shall maintain the confidentiality of information of members/patients, insurers or other persons or entities to whom the Confidential Material may pertain. The Parties agree to prevent the disclosure of such information to third parties except in connection with its obligations hereunder and as may be required by law. In the event that party or any of parties subsidiaries are requested or required (by oral questions, interrogatories, requests for information or document, subpoena, civil investigative demand or similar process) to disclose any information supplied to you in the course of your dealings with the other party or any subsidiary of the other party or the agents of any of them, you agree to provide the other party with prompt notice of such request(s) so that it may seek an appropriate protective order and/or waive your compliance with the provisions of this Agreement. It is further agreed that, if in the absence of a protective order or the receipt of a waiver hereunder you are nonetheless, in the reasonable opinion of your attorney, compelled to disclose information concerning the other party or any subsidiary of the other party to any tribunal or else stand liable for contempt or suffer other censure or penalty, you may disclose such information to such tribunal without liability hereunder.
