9. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. Each party (as “Receiving Party”) agrees that all code, inventions, know-how, business, technical and financial information it obtains from the other party (as “Disclosing Party”) constitutes the confidential property of the Disclosing Party (“Confidential Information”), provided that it is identified as confidential at the time of disclosure or should be reasonably known by the Receiving Party to be Confidential Information due to the nature of the information disclosed and the circumstances surrounding the disclosure.

The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy. Therefore, upon any such disclosure, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief (without the posting of a bond or similar instrument) in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law. Customer acknowledges this Section does not apply to Customer Data provided for use with services provided free of charge.
