Section 8. Confidentiality
Except as expressly provided herein, each party that receives (the “Receiving Party”) nonpublic information and know-how of the other party (the “Disclosing Party”) disclosed to or acquired by the Receiving Party pursuant to or in connection with the Kubit Services, which is either designated as proprietary and/or confidential or is of such nature that a reasonable person in like circumstances would understand such information to be proprietary and/or confidential (“Confidential Information”), will retain such information in confidence. Each party will retain in confidence the terms of each Order under the Terms of Service, provided, that each party may disclose the terms thereof to its legal and financial advisors in the ordinary course of its business provided that they are subject to the confidentiality obligations no less protective than those contained herein. Each Receiving Party agrees to use reasonable best efforts to protect the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party and, in any event, to take precautions at least as great as those taken to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature. The foregoing restrictions will not apply to any information that (a) was known by the Receiving Party prior to disclosure thereof by the Disclosing Party through no fault of the Receiving Party or wrongdoing of a third party, (b) was in or entered the public domain through no fault of the Receiving Party or wrongdoing of a third party, (c) is disclosed to the Receiving Party by a third party legally entitled to make such disclosure without violation of any obligation of confidentiality, (d) is required to be disclosed by applicable law (but in such event, only to the extent required to be disclosed), (e) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, or (f) is reasonably necessary to enforce the terms of the Terms of Service or any Order. Upon request of the Disclosing Party, or in any event upon any termination or expiration of the Term, each Receiving Party will return to the other party all materials, in any medium, which contain, embody, reflect or reference all or any part of any Confidential Information of the other party. Each party acknowledges that breach of this provision by it would result in irreparable harm to the other party, for which money damages would be an insufficient remedy, and therefore that the other party will be entitled to seek injunctive relief to enforce the provisions of this Section 8
Section 9. Miscellaneous
9.1. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR ANY PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR OTHER INDIRECT DAMAGES, AND IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF EITHER PARTY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE TERMS OF SERVICE OR ANY ORDER EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID OR PAYABLE BY CUSTOMER TO KUBIT UNDER THE TERMS OF SERVICE DURING THE THREE (3) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY.

From time to time, Kubit may modify the Terms of Service by posting a revised version on its website at https://www.kubit.ai/terms-of-service (or such successor URL as may be designated by Kubit); provided that Kubit may not change the price, quantity or similar financial terms contained in any Order without the written consent (or click through approval) of Customer. Unless otherwise specified by Kubit, changes become effective for Customer upon renewal of the then-current Subscription Term (as defined below) or entry into a new Order after the updated version of the Terms of Service goes into effect.
