9.11.  Only DMTF may take any action necessary to protect its rights hereunder, including injunctive relief, specific performance and any other remedies at law or in equity.  No remedy made available to DMTF by any of the provisions of this Agreement is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy.  Each and every remedy shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given hereunder, or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity, or by statute or otherwise.

11.  Confidential Information. You agree that the Software contains proprietary information, including trade secrets, know-how, and other such confidential information, that is the exclusive property of DMTF ("Confidential Information"). During the period this Agreement is in effect and at all times after its termination, you, and, if appropriate, your shareholders, members, directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively "Representatives"), shall maintain the confidentiality of this Confidential Information. Additionally, you and, if appropriate, your Representatives shall not sell, license, publish, display, distribute, disclose, or otherwise make available this Confidential Information to any third party nor use such information except as authorized by this Agreement.

You will not disclose any Confidential Information to any person who is not your actual legal employee without the prior written consent of DMTF, which may be withheld in DMTF's sole discretion. Additionally, you will not disclose Confidential Information to your employees other than to enable such employee to perform his/her employment responsibilities consistent with your rights under this Agreement.

Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement, information shall not be deemed Confidential Information, and you shall have no obligation with respect to any information that (i) is or becomes publicly known through no act or omission of you; (ii) was or is received by you without restriction on disclosure from a third party who disclosed the information without violating any confidentiality restriction; (iii) is independently developed by you without reference to DMTF's Confidential Information; or (iv) is divulged by you pursuant to statute, regulation, or the order of a court of competent jurisdiction, provided you previously notified DMTF to take appropriate protective measures.

You will safeguard and protect DMTF's Confidential Information from theft, piracy, or unauthorized access using the same standard of care that you use to protect your own confidential information, but in no event shall you use less than a reasonable standard of care.  You shall inform your employees, if applicable, of their obligations under this Agreement and shall take such steps as may be reasonable under the circumstances, or as may be reasonably requested by DMTF, to prevent any unauthorized disclosure, copying, distribution, or use of DMTF's Confidential Information. You acknowledge and agree that if you breach this Agreement, DMTF may suffer irreparable injuries not compensated by money damages and therefore shall not have an adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, DMTF shall be entitled to a temporary restraining order and a preliminary and final injunction without the necessity of posting any bond or undertaking in connection therewith to prevent any further breach of these confidentiality obligations or further unauthorized use of DMTF's Confidential Information. This remedy is separate and apart from any other remedy DMTF may have at law or in equity and/or otherwise provided under this Agreement.

You shall notify DMTF immediately upon discovery of any prohibited use or disclosure of DMTF's Confidential Information, or any other breach of these confidentiality obligations by you. You shall cooperate fully with DMTF to help DMTF regain possession of DMTF's Confidential Information and prevent the further prohibited use or disclosure of DMTF's Confidential Information.

12.  Export Licensing Compliance.  Software is subject to the United States Export Control Laws and may be subject to export or import regulations in other countries. You agree to comply strictly with all such laws and regulations.
