All information provided to us or to our affiliates or any of our or our affiliate’s directors, officers, employees, agents or advisors (collectively our “Representatives”) in connection with the Transaction, whether oral, in writing or in any electronic form, as well as all notes, extracts, analyses, compilations, data, reports or other documents or records prepared by us is referred to in this confidentiality agreement (the “Agreement”) as the “Confidential Information”.   Confidential Information does not include information or material of any nature, whether or not obtained pursuant to legal process or court order: (i) which was lawfully in our possession prior to disclosure of such information by the Disclosing Party; (ii) which was, or at any time becomes, available in the public domain other than through any act or omission by us or our Representatives; (iii) which is documented us in writing as having been developed by us independently; or (iv) which is furnished to us by a third party having a right to do so.
