If either party breaches its obligations under this Agreement, including the obligation to make payments when due, which breach is not cured within 10 days of receipt of written notice, the non-breaching party will have the right, without waiving any right or remedy otherwise available, to cease performance until such failure is remedied; this means that if You are in breach, LIVEADMINS LLC may suspend Your right to access the software, and may use the installed software to remove same from any and all systems where it is located, if You do not cure the breach within 10 days after written notice, which shall include email sent to the email provided on registration, whether or not the same has changed and therefore bounces.
The Software pricing, along with any other information clearly marked "confidential" provided under this Agreement are confidential and will not be disclosed, orally or in writing by You to any third party without LIVEADMINS LLC's prior written consent. LIVEADMINS LLC represents that the Software contains valuable proprietary information, is confidential, and You will protect the Software with at least the same degree of care and confidentiality, but not less than a reasonable standard of care, which You use for Your information that You do not wish disclosed to the public. You may provide access to and use of the Software only to those third parties that provide services to You concerning Your use of the Software; have a need to use and access the Software for the exercise or performance of the rights and obligations granted or imposed under this Agreement; and have agreed to substantially similar nondisclosure obligations imposed by You as those contained herein. Neither party will have any obligation of confidentiality with regard to information which is or becomes a part of the public domain through no act or omission of such party, was in such party's lawful possession prior to the disclosure thereto and had not been obtained by such party either directly or indirectly from the disclosing party, is lawfully disclosed to such party by a third party without restriction on disclosure, is independently developed by such party, or is required to be disclosed by applicable law. Both parties agree that if either party breaches any of its obligations of confidentiality, the other party may be irreparably harmed and in addition to all other remedies which such party may have, it is entitled to relief in equity without the necessity of proof of actual damage.
