Each party’s obligations of non-disclosure with regard to Confidential Information are effective during the term of this Agreement and will expire three years from the date first disclosed to the receiving party; provided, however, with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under applicable Law), such obligations of non-disclosure will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for as long as such Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under applicable law.
7.1 Obligation. Each party will defend, indemnify and hold harmless the other party and such party’s directors, officers, agents and employees from and against any and all Losses incurred by such person in connection with or related to any claim, action or proceeding brought by a third party that is not affiliated with any party hereto (a “Third Party Claim”) arising from any breach of such party’s respective representations, warranties or covenants in Section 5.
