The Supplier must only disclose such confidential information to those of its employees, agents and subcontractors who need to know it for the purpose of discharging its obligations under the Contract, and must ensure that such employees, agents and subcontractors comply with the obligations set out in this clause as though they were a party to the Contract. The receiving party may also disclose such of the disclosing party’s confidential information as is required to be disclosed by law, any governmental or regulatory authority or by a court of competent jurisdiction. This clause will survive termination of the Contract.

A waiver of any right under the Contract or law is only effective if it is in writing and will not be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right or remedy provided under the Contract or by law will constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor will it prevent or restrict its further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
