- Confidential Information. As used herein, "Confidential Information" means all confidential information disclosed by a party (the "Disclosing Party") to the other party (the "Receiving Party"), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or the Receiving Party knows or should know, given the facts and circumstances surrounding the disclosure of the information by the Disclosing Party, is confidential information of the Disclosing Party.

- Compelled Disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information if it is compelled to do so by Law or in connection with other legal proceedings involving the Disclosing Party, provided that the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) so as to permit the Disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to prevent such disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by Law to disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information. In the event Rocket Lawyer is obligated to respond to a third party subpoena or other compulsory legal order or process with respect to Your Data, You will promptly reimburse Rocket Lawyer for all reasonable attorneys' fees, as well as employees' time and materials, at Rocket Lawyer's then-current hourly rates, incurred in connection with such response.
