For purposes of this Agreement, 'Confidential Information' shall mean all data and information, of a confidential nature or otherwise, disclosed during the term of this Agreement by one party ('Disclosing Party') to the other party ('Receiving Party'), as well as information that the Receiving Party knows or should know that the Disclosing Party regards as confidential including but not limited to: (a) a party's business plans, strategies, know how, marketing plans, suppliers, sources of materials, finances, business relationships, personally identifiable end-user information, pricing, technology, employees, trade secrets and other non-public or proprietary information whether written, oral, recorded on tapes or in any other media or format; (b) the material terms of this Agreement; (c) with respect to CROWDOX, the identity and information of any Affiliate, any publishing relationship between CROWDOX and any Affiliate and any suppression list; and (d) any information marked or designated by the Disclosing Party as confidential. The Receiving Party agrees to hold all Confidential Information in trust and confidence and, except as may be authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, shall not use such Confidential Information for any purpose other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement or disclose any Confidential Information to any person, company or entity, except to its employees and professional advisers: (i) who need to know such information in order for the Receiving Party to perform its obligations hereunder; and (ii) who have entered into a confidentiality agreement with the Disclosing Party with terms at least as restrictive as those set forth herein.

(a) Assignment. Neither party hereto may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party, and any attempts to do so shall be null and void; provided, however, that either party may assign this Agreement or any portion hereof to: (a) an acquirer of all or substantially all of such party's equity, business or assets; (b) a successor in interest whether by merger, reorganization or otherwise; or (c) any entity controlling or under common control with such party.
(b) Choice of Law/Binding Arbitration/Venue. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Utah. Any dispute, claim or controversy (collectively the 'Controversy') arising out of or related to this Agreement, the breach hereof, the termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity hereof or any other matter related directly or indirectly to this Agreement shall be settled by binding arbitration in Los Angeles, Utah, in accordance with the rules of The American Arbitration Association ('AAA'). Judgment entered upon the award rendered may be enforced by appropriate judicial action pursuant to Utah law. The arbitration panel shall consist of a single arbitrator agreed to by each party hereto within thirty (30) days following notice by one party that it desires arbitration. If the parties are unable within such thirty (30) day period to agree upon an arbitrator, then the arbitrator shall be selected by the AAA, which arbitrator shall be experienced in the area of limited liability companies and who shall be knowledgeable with respect to the subject matter area of the Controversy. The losing party shall bear any fees and expenses of the arbitrator, other tribunal fees and expenses, reasonable attorneys' fees of both parties, any costs of producing witnesses and any other reasonable costs or expenses incurred by such losing party or the prevailing party. The arbitrator shall render a decision within thirty (30) days following the close of presentation by the parties of their cases and any rebuttal. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The parties shall agree within thirty (30) days following selection of the arbitrator to any prehearing procedures or further procedures necessary for the arbitration to proceed, including interrogatories or other discovery. Arbitration shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any Controversy to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving any Controversy brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. By executing this Agreement, each party hereto is agreeing to have all disputes decided by neutral arbitration, is giving up any rights it might possess to have such disputes litigated in a court or jury trial, and is giving up its judicial rights to discovery and appeal. If either party hereto refuses to submit to arbitration after agreeing to this provision, it may be compelled to arbitrate. By executing this Agreement, each party hereto hereby confirms that its agreement to this arbitration provision is voluntary. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Controversy directly arising out of or related to the non-payment by Crowdfunder to CROWDOX as required under this Agreement shall not be subject to arbitration and any of the foregoing provisions regarding arbitration. In the event that any suit, action or other legal proceeding shall be instituted against Crowdfunder in connection with this Agreement, Crowdfunder hereby submits to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court sitting in Salt Lake County, Utah and any state court sitting in Salt Lake County, Utah and further agrees to comply with all the requirements necessary to give such court jurisdiction.
(c) Modification. This Agreement represents the complete and entire expression of this Agreement between the parties hereto, and shall supersede any and all other agreements, whether written or oral, between such parties. This Agreement may be amended only by a written agreement executed by an authorized representative of each party.
(d) Non-Waiver/Severability. No waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party. If any provision contained in this Agreement is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law, then to the maximum extent permitted by law, such provision may be severed and replaced with a new provision agreed to by the parties hereto that most closely reflects the real intention of the parties or if the provision cannot be so replaced, then such provision shall be severed and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
(e) Relationship of the Parties. The parties hereto are independent contractors. There is no relationship of partnership, agency, employment, franchise or joint venture between the parties. Neither party has the authority to bind the other, or incur any obligation on its behalf; provided, however, that CROWDOX acts as a limited agent of Crowdfunder for the sole purpose of performing the Services set forth in this Agreement.
