5.2 Representatives. The Receiving Party will keep the Confidential Information confidential, and may disclose the Confidential Information to its officers, directors, employees, agents and subcontractors (and their employees) (“Representatives”) who have a need to know such Confidential Information solely in connection with this Agreement. The Receiving Party will cause such Representatives to comply with this Agreement and will assume full responsibility for any failure to comply with the terms of this Agreement.

5.4 Legal Requirements. If the Receiving Party is requested or required to disclose any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information under a subpoena, court order, statute, law, rule, regulation or other similar requirement (a “Legal Requirement”), the Receiving Party will, if lawfully permitted to do so, provide prompt notice of such Legal Requirement to the Disclosing Party so that the Disclosing Party may seek an appropriate protective order or other appropriate remedy or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement. If the Disclosing Party is not successful in obtaining a protective order or other appropriate remedy and the Receiving Party is legally compelled to disclose such Confidential Information, or if the Disclosing Party waives compliance with the provisions of this Agreement in writing, the Receiving Party may disclose, without liability hereunder, such Confidential Information solely to the extent necessary to comply with the Legal Requirement.
5.5 Disclosure. In the event that the Receiving Party learns or has reason to believe that Confidential Information has been disclosed or accessed by an unauthorized party, the Receiving Party will immediately give notice of such event to the Disclosing Party.

Alternatively, with Disclosing Party’s prior written consent, the Receiving Party may destroy such Confidential Information; provided that the Confidential Information is (i) destroyed in accordance with applicable law, rule or regulation, and (ii) is rendered unreadable, undecipherable and otherwise incapable of reconstruction, in which case an officer of the Receiving Party will certify in writing to the Disclosing Party that all such Confidential Information has been so destroyed.
5.7 Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges that a breach of this Article 5 may result in irreparable and continuing damage to the Disclosing Party for which monetary damages may not be sufficient, and agrees that the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek, in addition to its other rights and remedies hereunder or at law, injunctive or all other equitable relief, and such further relief as may be proper from a court of competent jurisdiction.

PROTEK will provide notice of such changes by posting the updated Agreement and PROTEK will change the “last updated” date listed above. Client’s continued use of the Services following such notice will mean that Client accepts and agrees to the changes to this Agreement. Any provision of this Agreement which, by its nature, should survive termination of this Agreement, will survive any such termination of this Agreement. This Agreement, including all SOWs and referenced documents constitutes the complete agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings between the parties.
