6.CONFIDENTIALITY; DATA PROTECTION
6.1 Confidentiality. Each party acknowledges that it and its affiliates (“Disclosing Party”) may have access to Confidential Information of the other party and its affiliates (“Receiving Party”) in connection with this Agreement. The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care). The Receiving Party agrees to (a) not use any Confidential Information for any purpose other than to perform its obligations and exercise its rights under this Agreement, and (b) restrict dissemination of Confidential Information only to individuals or third parties with a “need to know” such information and who are under a substantially similar duty of confidentiality. A Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in any legal proceeding or as required as a matter of applicable law or regulation (such as in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, governmental request, or other legal process); provided, however, that to the extent permitted by applicable law, the Receiving Party will (1) promptly notify the Disclosing Party before disclosing the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information; (2) reasonably cooperate with and assist the Disclosing Party, at the Disclosing Party’s expense, in any efforts by the Disclosing Party to contest the disclosure; and (3) disclose only that portion of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that is legally required to be disclosed.
Notwithstanding the above, a Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information will not include information that: (a) is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of the Receiving Party; (b) was in the Receiving Party’s lawful possession prior to the disclosure by the Disclosing Party and had not been obtained by the Receiving Party either directly or indirectly from the Disclosing Party; (c) is lawfully disclosed to the Receiving Party by a third party without restriction on the disclosure; or (d) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
6.2 Data Protection. The Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”) located at https://www.sophos.com/en-us/legal/data-processing-addendum is incorporated by reference into this Agreement if Licensee’s use and access of API and/or Plugins constitutes any "processing" by Sophos of any "personal data", but only to the extent such processing falls within the scope of "Applicable Data Protection Laws" (each term as defined in the DPA). In the event of any conflict between the terms of the DPA and this Agreement, the terms of the DPA will take precedence.

THE LIMITATONS AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY IN THIS SECTION APPLY (A) WHETHER SUCH CLAIMS ARISE UNDER CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), EQUITY, STATUTE, OR OTHERWISE, AND (B) NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF THE ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY.
Licensee will indemnify, defend, and hold Sophos, its affiliates, and their officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents harmless against any claims, liabilities, and expenses (including court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees) that are incurred as a result of or in connection with Licensee’s access and use of the APIs and/or Plugins.
