7.1 Confidential Information. During the term of this Agreement, each Party (the “Disclosing Party”) may provide the other Party (the “Receiving Party”) with Confidential Information. For the purpose of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means any information or data (including information or data received by the disclosing Party from a third Party and as to which the disclosing Party has confidentiality obligations) provided or disclosed by Disclosing Party or its agents to Receiving Party that is: (i) fixed in a tangible medium and marked as the confidential or proprietary information of the Disclosing Party; (ii) otherwise provided or disclosed by or on behalf of the Disclosing Party marked as proprietary at the time the information is provided; or (iii) not falling within any of the prior clauses of this sentence, but which, a reasonable person would conclude is of a confidential nature given the facts and circumstances of such disclosure or (iv) in the case of GoNoodle, the GoNoodle Platform, the Documentation, any price quotes by GoNoodle and the Fees.

The Receiving Party will limit access to the Confidential Information to those employees who have a need to know, who have confidentiality obligations no less restrictive than those set forth herein, and who have been informed of the confidential nature of such information. In addition, the Receiving Party will protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that it protects its own proprietary information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care. At the Disclosing Party’s request or upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will return to the Disclosing Party or destroy (or permanently erase in the case of electronic files) all copies of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party does not have a continuing right to use under this Agreement, and the Receiving Party shall provide to the Disclosing Party a written affidavit certifying compliance with this sentence.

The exceptions identified in the preceding sentence do not apply to the GoNoodle Platform and the Documentation, which are the Confidential Information of GoNoodle subject to Section 7.2 unless GoNoodle intentionally makes any such information public. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that such Confidential Information is required to be disclosed by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that prior to making any such disclosure, the Receiving Party promptly notifies the Disclosing Party in writing of such required disclosure and cooperates with the Disclosing Party if the Disclosing Party seeks an appropriate protective order.

In no event will either Party be liable or responsible to the other Party, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement or any applicable Sales Order or Institution Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement or such applicable Sales Order or Institution Agreement, when and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond such Party's reasonable control (a "Force Majeure Event"), including acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake or explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, embargoes or blockades in effect on or after the date of this Agreement, national or regional emergency, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, passage of Law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an export or import restriction, quota or other restriction or prohibition or any complete or partial government shutdown, or national or regional outage of adequate power or telecommunications or transportation. Either Party may terminate this Agreement and any applicable Sales Orders and Institution Agreements if a Force Majeure Event affecting the other Party continues substantially uninterrupted for a period of thirty (30) days or more. In the event of any failure or delay caused by a Force Majeure Event, the affected Party shall give prompt written notice to the other Party stating the period of time the occurrence is expected to continue and use diligent efforts to end the failure or delay and minimize the effects of such Force Majeure Event.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party may assign all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Sales Orders and Institution Agreements to a successor-in-interest as a result of a merger or consolidation or in connection with the sale or transfer of all or substantially all of its business or assets to which this Agreement relates.

14. Governing Law & Jurisdiction. You agree that this Agreement or any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether preexisting, present or future, and including statutory, common law and equitable claims) between you and GoNoodle arising from or relating to this Agreement, its interpretation or breach, termination or validity, the relationships which result from this Agreement, the GoNoodle Platform, GoNoodle advertising or any related transaction shall, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, be governed by the laws of the State of Tennessee, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules. Subject to the arbitration requirement below, the state and federal courts in Tennessee shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any Claim (as defined below).
15. Arbitration Requirement. Any claim, dispute or controversy (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether preexisting, present or future, and including statutory, common law, intentional tort and equitable claims) between you and GoNoodle arising from or relating to this Agreement, its interpretation or breach, termination or validity, the relationships which result from this Agreement, the GoNoodle Platform, GoNoodle advertising or any related transaction (a “Claim”) shall be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association, in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration rules then in effect, or any other established alternative dispute resolution provider mutually agreed upon by you and GoNoodle. The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section. The arbitration will be limited solely to the dispute between you and GoNoodle. Neither you nor GoNoodle shall be entitled to join or consolidate Claims by or against other users or arbitrate any Claim as a representative or class action or in a private Attorney General capacity. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability and/or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the Agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on you and GoNoodle and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and GoNoodle shall pay your and its own costs and attorneys’ fees. However, if you or GoNoodle prevails on a statutory Claim that affords the prevailing party attorneys' fees, or if there is a written agreement providing for fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing party, under the standards for fee shifting provided by law. Arbitration shall take place in the State of Tennessee. Any Claim must be brought within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, regardless of any statute or law to the contrary. In the event any such claim or cause of action is not filed within such one (1) year period, such Claim shall be forever barred.

17. Enforceability. Even if the law will not enforce a provision of this Agreement in a particular instance, the Parties intend to remain bound by the other, enforceable provisions. If the unenforceable provision could be interpreted in a manner that would render it enforceable, while still reflecting the Parties’ mutual intent, they intend for that interpretation to apply. If permitted by law, the Parties also intend for the provision that cannot be enforced in that instance to remain applicable in any other instances when it can be enforced.
18. Amendments. The Parties acknowledge that they may desire to modify this Agreement in the future, but that no modifications will be legally binding unless the modifications are expressly set forth in a writing that is physically or digitally signed by representatives of each of them.
