(i) discontinue any use of Proprietary Information;
(ii) at Company’s instruction and sole discretion as to method, either deliver to Company all materials that contain Proprietary Information or information derived therefrom in its possession, or erase or destroy any Proprietary Information or information derived therefrom in its possession; and

4. In the event that Customer is required by law to disclose any Proprietary Information, Customer will endeavor in good faith to provide the Company prompt notice of any such requirement so that the Company may, at their expense, seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement. If, in the absence of a protective order or other similar remedy or the receipt of a waiver from Company, Customer’s counsel determines that disclosure of the Proprietary Information is required to comply with such law, Customer may, without liability under this Agreement, disclose to the appropriate authority only that portion of the Proprietary Information which, on advice of counsel, it is required to disclose, provided that Customer uses reasonable efforts to preserve the confidentiality of the other Proprietary Information, including, without limitation, by cooperating with the Company to obtain an appropriate protective order or other reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the other Proprietary Information
5. Any Trade Secrets of the Company shall also be entitled to all of the protections and benefits under O.C.G.A. § 10-1-761, O.C.G.A. § 16-8-3, and any other applicable law. If any information which the Company deems to be a Trade Secret is found by a court of competent jurisdiction not to be a Trade Secret for purposes of this Agreement, then the same information will be considered Proprietary Information for purposes of this Agreement.

Further, Customer shall indemnify Company for any damages finally awarded against, and for reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by Company in connection with any such claim, demand, suit or proceeding; provided, that Company (i) promptly gives Customer written notice of the claim, demand, suit, or proceeding; (ii) gives Customer sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim, demand, suit or proceeding (provided that Customer may not settle any claim, demand, suit or proceeding unless the settlement unconditionally releases Company of all liability); and (iii) provides to Customer all reasonable assistance, at Customer’s expense.
