12.5.3 Upon receipt of a written request and payment of Sonra’s standard fee, Sonra shall use reasonable commercial endeavours to deliver a back-up of Client Data to Client within 30 days of its receipt of such a written request, provided that Client has at that time paid all fees and charges outstanding at and resulting from termination. If Sonra does not receive any such request within 30 days of the date of termination, it may destroy or otherwise dispose of any of Client Data in its possession; and

The Receiving Party shall keep in confidence all Confidential Information disclosed by the Disclosing Party and shall not use Confidential Information except in furtherance of this Agreement. The Receiving Party shall not disclose any Confidential Information to any person without the Disclosing Party’s prior written consent except that the Receiving Party may disclose the Confidential Information to its officers, employees, independent contractors and agents (“Representatives”) on a “need-to-know” basis, provided that such Representatives are bound by a written agreement with materially the same terms and conditions as this clause 13 and the Receiving Party remains ultimately liable for any breach thereof.
13.2 The obligations of confidentiality shall continue during the term of this Agreement and thereafter, unless and until such Confidential Information falls within one of the exceptions outlined in clause 13.3.
13.3 This clause 13 shall not apply with respect to information the Receiving Party can document: (a) is in the public domain as a result of no act or omission of the Receiving Party or its employees or agents; (b) is received by the Receiving Party from third parties without restriction and without breach of a duty of nondisclosure by such third party; (c) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without reliance on the Confidential Information; or (d) is required to be disclosed by operation of law or by order of a court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction (provided that, where permitted under law, prior to such disclosure, the Receiving Party shall first give notice to the Disclosing Party such that the Disclosing Party has the opportunity to contest such order or requirement of disclosure or seek appropriate protective order).
13.4 Any breach or threatened breach by the receiving party of an obligation under this Agreement may cause the Disclosing Party immediate and irreparable harm for which damages alone may not be an adequate remedy. Consequently the Disclosing Party has the right, in addition to other remedies available at law or in equity, to seek injunctive relief against the receiving party (and its agents, assigns, employees, officers and directors, personally) or to compel specific performance of this clause.
13.5 A party must notify the Disclosing Party in writing, giving full details known to it immediately, when it becomes aware of any actual, suspected, likely or threatened breach by any person of any obligation in relation to the Confidential Information, or any actual, suspected, likely or threatened theft, loss, damage, or unauthorised access, use or disclosure of or to any Confidential Information
