Notwithstanding the foregoing, information furnished or made available by or on behalf of either party will not constitute Confidential Information if such information: (a) is rightfully in the recipient’s possession before receipt from the disclosing party without violating the recipient’s or any of its Representative’s obligations hereunder; (b) is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a violation of this Agreement; (c) is received by the recipient from a source (other than the disclosing party) not bound, to the actual knowledge of recipient or its Representatives, by any obligation prohibiting or limiting the disclosure of such information; or (d) is independently developed by the recipient or its Representatives without any use of or reference to the Confidential Information.
