and business methods to perform services. The Contractor has not and will not receive training from the

Recipient, including without limitation, all financial, investment, operational, personnel, sales, marketing,

managerial and statistical information of the Recipient, and any and all trade secrets, customer lists, or

pricing information of the Recipient. The nature of the information and the manner of disclosure are such

that a reasonable person would understand it to be confidential. The Contractor will not at any time or in any

manner, either directly or indirectly, use for the personal benefit of the Contractor, or divulge, disclose, or

communicate in any manner any Confidential Information. The Contractor will protect such information and

treat the Confidential Information as strictly confidential. This provision shall continue to be effective after

created, or controlled by the Contractor during the term of this Agreement.

This Agreement is in compliance with the Defend Trade Secrets Act and provides civil or criminal immunity

to any individual for the disclosure of trade secrets: (i) made in confidence to a federal, state, or local

government official, or to an attorney when the disclosure is to report suspected violations of the law; or (ii)

in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit if made under seal.

12. INJURIES. The Contractor acknowledges the Contractor's obligation to obtain appropriate insurance

coverage for the benefit of the Contractor (and the Contractor's employees, if any). The Contractor waives

any rights to recovery from the Recipient for any injuries that the Contractor (and/or Contractor's employees)

may sustain while performing services under this Agreement and that are a result of the negligence of the

Contractor or the Contractor's employees. Contractor will provide the Recipient with a certificate naming the

Recipient as an additional insured party.

13. INDEMNIFICATION. The Contractor agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Recipient from all

claims, losses, expenses, fees including attorney fees, costs, and judgments that may be asserted against the

Recipient that result from the acts or omissions of the Contractor, the Contractor's employees, if any, and the

Contractor's agents.

14. NO RIGHT TO ACT AS AGENT. An "employer-employee" or "principal-agent" relationship is not

created merely because (1) the Recipient has or retains the right to supervise or inspect the work as it

progresses in order to ensure compliance with the terms of the contract or (2) the Recipient has or retains the

right to stop work done improperly. The Contractor has no right to act as an agent for the Recipient and has

an obligation to notify any involved parties that it is not an agent of the Recipient.

15. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement constitutes the entire contract between the parties. All terms

and conditions contained in any other writings previously executed by the parties regarding the matters

contemplated herein shall be deemed to be merged herein and superseded hereby. No modification of this

Agreement shall be deemed effective unless in writing and signed by the parties hereto.

16. WAIVER OF BREACH. The waiver by the Recipient of a breach of any provision of this Agreement

by Contractor shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach by Contractor.

17. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for

any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court finds that any

provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become

valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so

limited.

18. APPLICABLE LAW. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York.
