This Subscription Period shall become effective on the date of payment for the Subscription Period (the "Effective Date") and shall continue until all subscriptions hereunder have expired or have been terminated in accordance with the terms set forth herein. Client shall elect whether the term will consist of monthly, biannual, or annual periods (the "Subscription Period").

Client agrees that the Software and Services are proprietary products and services and that all right, title and interest in and to the Services and Software, including without limitation, all associated intellectual property rights such as trademarks and copyrights, are and shall at all times remain with Provider and its third party licensors. The Software contains trade secret and proprietary information owned by Provider or its third party licensors. Client shall not copy or distribute the Software for any purpose. Furthermore, Provider retains all ownership and intellectual property rights to anything developed and delivered under the Agreement.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Provider shall have the right to collect and analyze Asset Data and other information relating to the provision, use, and performance of various aspects of the Services and Software (including, without limitation, information concerning Asset Data and data derived therefrom), and Provider, during and after the term hereof, (i) will be free to use such Asset Data to improve and enhance the Services and Software and for other development, diagnostic, statistical, and corrective purposes; and (ii) shall have the right to compile and sell to the public any and all Asset Data, including the results derived from analyzing Asset Data, provided that such information and data is adequately masked and anonymized and does not identify Client or Client's customers, e.g. the Industrial Plants, as the case may be. Provider retains all intellectual property rights in such information. No rights or licenses are granted except as expressly set forth in this Agreement.
Ownership of Workspace, Reports, and Asset Data. Service Companies and its customers (the Industrial Plants) shall agree to ownership of the Workspace and the Reports in the Software. Once agreed, the Client shall inform Provider regarding ownership of the Workspace and the Reports. In the event there is no agreement between the Service Companies and the Industrial Plants, the Provider will assume by default that the ownership of the Workspace and the Reports belongs to the customers of the Service Companies, the Industrial Plants. Asset Data that is masked and anonymized in a way that does not identify the Client, whether that Client is a Service Company or the Industrial Plant, is the exclusive property of and is owned by the Provider. In the case of Service Companies that contract with the Provider, the same has an obligation to inform its customers, the Industrial Plants, that ownership of masked and anonymized Asset Data is the property of and is owned by the Provider.
Confidential Information. For purposes of this Agreement "Confidential Information" shall mean (i) any and all information that is confidential to each Party, that is reasonably understood to be confidential or proprietary, or that which is disclosed by either party to the other verbally, electronically, visually, or in a written or other tangible form which is either identified or should be reasonably understood to be confidential or proprietary; (ii) the terms and pricing under this Agreement; and (iii) Asset Data that is uploaded to the Software.
Exclusions. Confidential Information excludes Asset Data that is masked and anonymized for the uses stated in Section 5.2 and excludes information that: (i) was or becomes publicly known through no fault of the receiving Party; (ii) was rightfully known or becomes rightfully known to the receiving Party without confidential or proprietary restriction from a source other than the disclosing Party; (iii) is independently developed by the receiving Party without the participation of individuals who have had access to the Confidential Information; (iv) is approved by the disclosing Party for disclosure without restriction in a written document which is signed by a duly authorized officer of such disclosing Party; and (v) the receiving Party is legally compelled to disclose; provided, however, that prior to any such compelled disclosure, the receiving Party will (a) assert the privileged and confidential nature of the Confidential Information against the third party seeking disclosure and (b) cooperate fully with the disclosing Party in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Confidential Information. In the event that such protection against disclosure is not obtained, the receiving Party will be entitled to disclose the Confidential Information, but only as, and to the extent, necessary to legally comply with such compelled disclosure.
Non disclosure. During the term of this Agreement and for a period of three (3) years thereafter, each Party agrees to maintain all Confidential Information in confidence to the same extent that it protects its own similar Confidential Information, but in no event using less than reasonable care, and to use such Confidential Information only as permitted under this Agreement; each Party agrees to only disclose the other Party's Confidential Information to its employees on a need to know basis and who are informed of the non-disclosure/non-use obligations imposed by this Section. Both parties shall take steps each determines appropriate to implement and enforce such non-disclosure/non-use obligations.
