Customer is solely responsible for the accuracy, quality, legality, reliability, and appropriateness of all Customer Data. Customer shall ensure that it is entitled to transfer the relevant Customer Data to Lightup so that Lightup and its service providers may lawfully use, process, and transfer the Customer Data in accordance with this Agreement on Customer’s behalf.

4.3 Compliance with CCPA. In order for Lightup to provide the Subscription Services to Customer, Customer may disclose Personal Information to Lightup. The parties agree that to provide the Subscription Services to Customer, Lightup is acting as a “Service Provider” pursuant to §1798.140 of the California Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA”).

Lightup will not sell, rent, release, disclose, disseminate, make available, transfer or otherwise communicate Personal Information to any third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. The Parties acknowledge that Customer or its Authorized Users may, through its or their use of the Subscription Services, sell, rent, release, disclose, disseminate, make available, transfer or otherwise communicate Personal Information to a third party, and such actions will not be considered a sale by Lightup. Lightup shall not retain, use or disclose Personal Information outside of the direct business relationship between Lightup and Customer. Customer is responsible for responding to Data Subject requests using its own access to the relevant Personal Information. To the extent legally permitted, Customer shall be responsible for any costs arising from Lightup’s provision of such assistance. For purposes of this Section 4.3, “Personal Information” means any Customer Data that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household, as further defined in the CCPA. For purposes of this Section 4.3, “Data Subject” means the identified or identifiable person to whom Personal Information relates. When and as required by applicable law from time to time, Lightup will execute supplemental privacy and security terms, including but not limited to those required under Article 28 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”), with Customer or Customer’s Affiliates that purchase Subscription Services under this Agreement.
4.4 Customer Data Deletion. Upon cessation or termination of Lightup’s relationship with Customer, Lightup has no obligation to maintain or provide any Customer Data and within a reasonable time following termination is entitled to delete or destroy Customer Data no longer in active use unless prohibited by law.

5. THIRD PARTY SERVICES
The Subscription Services include features designed to interoperate with third party products, services, and websites (collectively, “Third Party Services”). To use such features, Customer may be required to obtain access to such Third Party Services from their providers, and grant Lightup access to Customer’s account(s) on such Third Party Services. If Customer uses a Third Party Service with the Subscription Services, Customer grants Lightup permission to allow the Third Party Service and its provider to access Customer Data solely as required for the interoperation of the Third Party Service with the Subscription Services. Lightup does not control Third Party Services, does not warrant or support Third Party Services, and does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Third Party Services. Lightup is not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused to Customer by Customer’s use of or reliance on any Third Party Services, including without limitation any disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Data resulting from access by any Third Party Service or its provider.

8.1 Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” shall mean all written or oral information, disclosed by either Party to the other, related to the operations of either Party or a third party that has been identified as confidential or that by the nature of the circumstances surrounding disclosure ought reasonably to be treated as confidential. The Parties acknowledge that during the performance of this Agreement, each Party will have access to certain of the other Party’s Confidential Information or Confidential Information of third parties that the disclosing Party is required to maintain as confidential. Both parties agree that all items of Confidential Information are proprietary to the disclosing Party or such third party, as applicable, and will remain the sole property of the disclosing Party or such third party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of Sections 8.1 and 8.2 will not apply to information that (a) is publicly available or in the public domain at the time disclosed; (b) is or becomes publicly available or enters the public domain through no fault of the recipient; (c) is rightfully communicated to the recipient by persons not bound by confidentiality obligations with respect thereto; (d) is already in the recipient’s possession free of any confidentiality obligations with respect thereto at the time of disclosure by disclosing Party; or (e) is independently developed by the recipient.

Each Party agrees as follows: (a) to use Confidential Information disclosed by the other Party only for the purposes described herein; (b) to hold in confidence and protect such Confidential Information from dissemination to, and use by, any third party; (c) to restrict access to the Confidential Information disclosed by the other Party to such of its personnel, agents, and/or consultants, if any, who have a need to have access and who have been advised of and have agreed in writing to treat such information in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; and (d) to the extent practicable, return or destroy all Confidential Information disclosed by the other Party that is in its possession upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, upon request of the other Party.
8.3 Remedies. The receiving Party acknowledges that breach of the confidentiality obligations in this Section 8 would cause irreparable harm to the disclosing Party, the extent of which may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, the receiving Party agrees that, in addition to any other remedies available to it, the disclosing Party is entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief in the event of breach of an obligation of confidentiality by the receiving Party, and that the disclosing Party shall not be required to post a bond or show irreparable harm in order to obtain such injunctive relief.
8.4 Compelled Disclosure. The receiving Party may access and disclose Confidential Information of the disclosing Party if legally required to do so in connection with any legal or regulatory proceeding; provided, however, that in such event the receiving Party will, if lawfully permitted to do so, notify the disclosing Party prior to such access or disclosure so as to allow the disclosing Party an opportunity to seek appropriate protective measures. Receiving Party will furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information that is legally required to be disclosed, and any Confidential Information so disclosed shall maintain its confidentiality protection for all purposes other than such legally compelled disclosure.
8.5 Feedback. If Customer or its Authorized Users provide Lightup any suggestions, recommendations, enhancement or feature requests, or other feedback relating to Lightup’s current or future products or services (“Feedback”), Lightup shall have the right to use, disclose, reproduce, sublicense, or otherwise distribute and exploit the Feedback in any manner without restriction, provided that Lightup shall not identify Customer or any Authorized User as the source of such Feedback. Feedback shall not include Customer Data and shall not be deemed Confidential Information of Customer.
