If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information as part of a civil or criminal 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.

A party may terminate this Agreement for cause: (i) upon thirty (30) days written notice to the other party of a material breach, if the breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period, or (ii) if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation, or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
- Refund or Payment upon Termination. Upon any termination for cause by You, Skuid will refund any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the Term of all subscriptions after the effective date of termination.
