Recipient shall immediately notify Company upon discovery of any loss or unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information.
All Confidential Information is provided “AS IS,” without any warranty of any kind.

If any provision of this Agreement is found by a proper authority to be unenforceable or invalid, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole and in such event, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions. Recipient agrees that upon Company's request, all disputes arising hereunder shall be adjudicated in the state and federal courts having jurisdiction over disputes arising in the borough of Manhattan, New York, and Recipient hereby agrees to consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts.
