Any provision of these Terms that, by its nature and context is intended to survive, including provisions relation to payment of outstanding fees, confidentiality, warranties, and limitation of liability, will survive termination of these Terms.

If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information. In the event that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained, the Receiving Party shall furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information that is legally required and use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the Confidential Information.
14. PROTECTION OF CONFIDENTIAL LICENSEE CONTENT; SECURITY.
14.1. Codefresh shall maintain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of Licensee Content that is Licensee’s Confidential Information (“Confidential Licensee Content”).
