This exception to the obligations of confidentiality and non-use is intended only to alleviate the possibility of inadvertent breach of this Agreement arising from routine, unaided memory retention by employees or other affiliates of the Company and is not intended to permit the Company to use or disclose information known to the Company to be Deliverables or Confidential Information subject to this Agreement.
If Customer provides the Company with any feedback or suggestions about the Services or the Company’s business operations (the “Feedback”), the Company may use the Feedback without obligation to the Customer, and the Customer irrevocably assigns to the Company all right, title, and interest in and to the Feedback.

7.2 Required Disclosure.
If the Receiving Party is required by applicable law or legal process to disclose any Confidential Information, it shall, prior to making such disclosure, use commercially reasonable efforts to notify the Disclosing Party of such requirements to afford the Disclosing Party the opportunity to seek, at the Disclosing Party’s sole cost and expense, a protective order or other remedy.

Company is performing services for Customer as an independent contractor. Neither Party can bind the other to any agreement with any third party.
8.2 No Exclusive Duty.
The Company shall not be required to participate in the provision of Services to the Customer hereunder as its sole and exclusive function, and the Customer understands and acknowledges that the Company may have other business interests and may engage in other activities, in addition to those relating to the Customer, including the provision of the same or similar services to other customers and clients of the Company. The Customer further understands and acknowledges that some such persons may otherwise be considered competitors of the Customer, and such fact shall not alter the foregoing presumption and permission; provided that the Company is otherwise abiding by its obligations hereunder (including its obligations of confidentiality).
