5.2. Parallels’ Right to Use Data.
(a) For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means any and all non-public technical and non-technical information disclosed by one party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) in any form or medium, whether oral, written, graphical, or electronic, pursuant to this Agreement, that is marked confidential and proprietary, or that the Disclosing Party identifies as confidential and proprietary, or that by the nature of the information disclosed or received and circumstances surrounding the disclosure or receipt should reasonably be understood to be confidential and proprietary information, including but not limited to, services, pricing information, computer programs, source code, names and expertise of employees and consultants, know-how, and other technical, business, financial, and product development information. “Confidential Information” does not include any information that the receiving party can demonstrate by its written records (1) was rightfully known to it without obligation of confidentiality prior to its disclosure hereunder by the disclosing party; (2) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the receiving party; (3) has been rightfully received without obligation of confidentiality from a third party authorized to make such a disclosure; or (4) is independently developed by the receiving party without reference to confidential information disclosed hereunder.
(b) Neither party will use any Confidential Information of the other party except as expressly permitted by this Agreement or as expressly authorized in writing by the Disclosing Party. The Receiving Party shall use the same degree of care to protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information of like nature, but in no circumstances less than a commercially reasonable standard of care. The Receiving Party may not disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any person or entity other than to those of its employees and contractors who need access to such Confidential Information solely for the purpose of fulfilling the Receiving Party’s obligations or exercising that party’s rights hereunder and are subject to confidentiality obligations no less stringent than those provided herein. The foregoing obligations will not restrict the Receiving Party from disclosing Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party: (1) pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body, provided that the Receiving Party required to make such a disclosure gives reasonable notice to the Disclosing Party prior to such disclosure, to the extent such notice is legally permissible; and (2) on a confidential basis to its legal and financial advisors, accountants, and auditors. Each party shall be responsible for any failure by any other person or entity to which it discloses the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to comply with the terms of this Section 5.3 and shall promptly notify the Disclosing Party of any such failure. Parallels may identify Licensee in its customer lists in online and print marketing materials.

In the event that any such audit reveals an underpayment by you, you shall promptly reimburse Parallels in the amount of the underpayment, plus interest calculated in accordance with Section 6.2. In addition, in the event that any such audit reveals an underpayment by you of five percent (5%) or more of the license fees due to Parallels in the period being audited, then, in addition to any other rights and remedies Parallels may have, you will promptly pay to Parallels the cost of the audit.
You will, at your own expense, indemnify and hold Parallels, and all of our officers, directors, and employees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”), harmless from and against any and all claims, actions, liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, grants, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees (collectively, “Claims”), arising out of or related to (a) your use or alleged use of the Package or Documentation or any component thereof other than as permitted under this Agreement or applicable Third-Party Terms; (b) arising out of or relating to any violation of Article 1 or Section 2.1, or (c) any violation of applicable laws. You shall pay all damages, costs, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees and costs (whether by settlement or award of a final judicial judgment) incurred by the Indemnified Parties from any such Claim. In no event shall you settle any claim without Parallels’ prior written approval. Parallels may, at its own expense, engage separate counsel to advise Parallels regarding any Claim and to participate in the defense of such Claim, subject to your right to control the defense and settlement.
