Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, if a Party is compelled by deposition, interrogatory, request for documents, subpoena, civil investigation demand, or similar process to disclose any Information, the Party so compelled shall: (i) Provide the other Party with prompt, written notice of such compulsion so the other Party can seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy or waive compliance with the terms of this Agreement; (ii) Exercise reasonable efforts and cooperate fully with the other Party, to the extent permitted by law, to resist or narrow the scope of such requirement and the scope of such disclosure; and (iii) If compelled to actually disclose Information, disclose only the Information the Party’s legal counsel advises must be disclosed and take reasonable steps to have the disclosed Information kept confidential.
