Company will provide reasonable cooperation upon Redacted’s request to enable Redacted to perform the Services.

    2. Site Access. During the course of performing Services, Redacted may need to access Company’s physical locations, sites, or facilities.

Once executed, a Change Order will become a part of, and will be incorporated into, the related Statement of Work.

    5. Lost Time. Any delays or additional costs incurred by Redacted during the course of a fixed-fee engagement as a result of Company’s failure to provide timely and proper co-operation described in this Agreement (“Lost Time”) shall be the responsibility of Company and payment for all Lost Time shall be made to Redacted at Redacted’s then-current rates.

    3. Payments. Redacted shall invoice Company for all amounts at the time Services are provided. Monthly subscription fees will be invoiced at the beginning of each month.

    1. Definition. “Confidential Information” means any proprietary information, technical data, network information, trade secrets, or know-how, including, but not limited to, log data, network traffic information, network metadata, research, product plans, products, services, customers, customer lists, markets, software, developments, inventions, processes, formulas, technology, designs, drawings, engineering, hardware configuration information, marketing, finances, or other business information disclosed by either party (“Disclosing Party”) directly or indirectly to the other (“Receiving Party”), in writing, orally or by drawings or inspection of parts or equipment, and that is designated as “Confidential,” “Proprietary,” or some similar designation or should reasonably have been understood to be confidential, considering the facts and circumstances. Without limiting the foregoing, Confidential Information: (a) includes the existence and details of this Agreement, including all Statements of Work, (b) does not include, technical conclusions and other related findings that are identified or developed by Redacted in connection with its performance of the Services (“Findings and Conclusions”), provided that such Findings and Conclusions cannot reasonably be used to identify Company or Company’s Confidential Information. Redacted shall have unrestricted, perpetual, royalty-free right to use, disclose, and distribute such Findings and Conclusions throughout the world, in any form or media, during the normal course of business.

    2. Non-Use and Non-Disclosure. Receiving Party shall not, during or subsequent to the term of this Agreement, use Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information other than in relation to the performance of the Services or disclose Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any third party except as permitted in this Section. Confidential Information will remain the sole property of Disclosing Party. Receiving Party shall take all reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorized disclosure of Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information including, but not limited to, disclosing such information only to those employees and contractors who have a need to know it and who have executed nondisclosure agreements containing provisions in Disclosing Party’s favor substantially similar to this Section 3.

What enables Redacted to provide the Services is its ability to create aggregations and summaries of the data Redacted collects (including but not limited to network anomalies, threat, and vulnerability data) (“Aggregations and Summaries”) and to use those Aggregations and Summaries for the benefit of all of its clients. Aggregations and Summaries will be limited to data regarding: (i) network traffic identifying anomalies, (ii) technical information concerning threats to cyber security, (iii) malware and malware signatures, (iv) technical indicators of compromise, (v) technical data revealing the activity of malicious actors, and (vi) technical data concerning vulnerabilities With that in mind, Company acknowledges and agrees that Redacted has the right to create Aggregations and Summaries of Company Materials, provided that no such aggregation or summary directly or indirectly identifies Company or includes any data or information that is directly traceable to Company’s Confidential Information, its customers, or employees. Company agrees that Redacted will be the sole owner of all such Aggregations and Summaries, that such Aggregations and Summaries will not be considered Company’s Confidential Information, and that Redacted has the unrestricted, perpetual, royalty-free right to use, disclose, and distribute such Aggregations and Summaries throughout the world, in any form ormedia, during the normal course of business.
