In consideration of the foregoing, the parties agree as follows:

1. Confidential Information

Confidential Information also includes:

The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to its directors, officers, employees, and advisors (collectively, “Representatives”) who have a bona fide need to know such Confidential Information for the Purpose, but solely to the extent necessary to pursue the Purpose, and for no other purpose; provided that such Representatives are informed of the confidential nature of the Information and agree to be bound by the terms as set forth in this Agreement.

(d) are independently developed by the Recipient without access to any Confidential Information.

4. Compelled Disclosure

Nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to restrict the Recipient from disclosing Confidential Information to the extent required by any order, subpoena, law, statute or regulation; provided, that the Recipient uses all reasonable efforts to give the Company reasonable advance notice of such required disclosure in order to enable the Company to prevent or limit such disclosure.

5. Return of Confidential Information

Upon the completion or abandonment of the Purpose, and in any event upon the Company’s request, the Recipient will promptly return to the Company all tangible items and embodiments containing or consisting of Confidential Information and all copies thereof (including electronic copies), and any notes, analyses, compilations, studies, interpretations, memoranda or other documents (regardless of the form thereof) prepared by or on behalf of the Recipient that contain or are based upon Confidential Information.

The Company retains the right, in its sole discretion, to determine whether to disclose any Confidential Information to the Recipient. In no event will the Company be required to negotiate or enter into any other agreements or arrangements with the Recipient, whether or not related to the Purpose.

7. No License

All Confidential Information remains the sole and exclusive property of the Company. The Recipient acknowledges and agrees that nothing in this Agreement will be construed as granting any rights to the Recipient, by license or otherwise, in or to any Confidential Information of the Company, or any patent, copyright or other intellectual property or proprietary rights of the Company, except as specified in this Agreement.

8. No Warranty

ALL CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED BY THE COMPANY “AS IS”.

9. Term

This Agreement will remain in effect for a period of five (5) years from the date of last disclosure of Confidential Information by the Company, at which time it will terminate.

10. Equitable Relief

The Recipient acknowledges that the unauthorised use or disclosure of any Confidential Information would cause the Company to suffer irreparable harm and incur significant damages, the degree of which may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, the Recipient agrees that the Company will have the right to obtain immediate equitable relief to enjoin any unauthorised use or disclosure of its Confidential Information, in addition to any other rights or remedies that it may have at law or otherwise.

11. Governing Law

This agreement will be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Queensland and the Federal Laws of the Commonwealth of Australia applicable therein, excluding conflict of laws rules.
