This Section will not be construed to prohibit the disclosure of Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is required by law or valid order of a court or other governmental authority; provided, however, that a Party who has been subpoenaed or otherwise compelled by a valid law or court order to disclose Confidential Information (the “Responding Party”) shall first have given sufficient and prompt written notice to the other Party of the receipt of any subpoena or other request for such disclosure, so as to permit such Party an opportunity to obtain a protective order or take other appropriate action. The Responding Party will cooperate in the other Party’s efforts to obtain a protective order or other reasonable assurance that confidential treatment will be afforded the Confidential Information. If the Responding Party is compelled as a matter of law to disclose the Confidential Information, it may disclose to the Party compelling the disclosure only that part of the Confidential Information as is required by law to be disclosed.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Terms, Content is not included in Confidential Information as defined above. To the extent Mati has any access to Content in the course of providing the Services, Mati’s entire obligation to keep Content confidential is stated in this Section below.

i) to provide the Security Services specifically set forth in this Terms and
ii) maintain and enforce the then-current standard Mati security policies and standards applicable to the Services as practiced at the service locations from which Mati is providing the Services to Client.
The obligations in this Section shall not apply to the recipient of Confidential Information and/or Mati with respect to Content to the extent disclosure of Confidential Information or Content is required to comply with laws or respond to requests by a regulatory or judicial body and/or as otherwise required for legal process. In the event that any such disclosure is required, the recipient, and/or Mati with respect to Content, reserves the right to charge the other Party on a time-and-materials basis for recipient’s/Mati’s reasonable efforts related to its compliance and response, including, if applicable, reasonable attorney’s fees.
