(d) promptly notify the Disclosing Party of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information and cooperate with Disclosing Party toward the goal of reasonably preventing further unauthorized use or disclosure.
6.4. Continued Protection. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement (except, and subject to, the provisions of Sections 7 and 8), the Receiving Party’s obligations under this Section 6 with respect to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret under any applicable Law will continue until such time, if ever, as such Confidential Information ceases to qualify for trade secret protection under one or more such applicable Laws other than as a result of any act or omission of the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives.
6.5. Compelled Disclosures. If the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives is compelled by applicable Law to disclose any Confidential Information then, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, the Receiving Party shall: (a) promptly, and prior to such disclosure, notify the Disclosing Party in writing of such requirement so that the Disclosing Party can seek a protective order or other remedy or waive its rights under this Section 6; and (b) provide reasonable assistance to the Disclosing Party in opposing such disclosure or seeking a protective order or other limitations on disclosure. If the Disclosing Party waives compliance or, after providing the notice and assistance required under this Section 6, the Receiving Party remains required by Law to disclose any Confidential Information, the Receiving Party shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party is legally required to disclose.
6.6. Resultant Data and System User Data. For the avoidance of doubt and notwithstanding any other term or provision of this Agreement, the Parties agree that Resultant Data and System User Data are the Confidential Information of Provider and that none of the Resultant Data or System User Data is or shall be considered any Confidential Information of Customer.

For the avoidance of doubt, survival of a section hereby means that all subsections, at any tier, and parts thereof, survive.
11. Dispute Resolution By Arbitration. Any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of, relating to, or in connection with, directly or indirectly, the formation, existence, creation, modification, extinguishment, performance, enforcement, breach, termination, expiration, dissolution, rescission, revocation, voiding, nullifying, end, validity or interpretation thereof or any provision of this Agreement (collectively, “Arbitration Claims”, which, and for the avoidance of doubt, Arbitration Claims include, without limitation, any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of, relating to, or in connection with, directly or indirectly, the interpretation, settlement and resolution of the scope of these arbitration provisions) shall be settled by binding, nonappealable arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “Commercial Rules”) and, to the extent not inconsistent therewith, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 USC §§ 1 et seq.); provided, that the arbitration panel shall have no less than the powers granted to arbitrators under the Federal Arbitration Act except as such powers are expressly limited by this Section 11. Arbitration Claims shall be brought solely by a party in that party’s individual or singular corporate capacity not as part of, or as a representative of, a class. The arbitration shall be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Judgment by the arbitration panel may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration panel shall be composed of one arbitrator who is an attorney with at least ten (10) years experience in representing one or more companies in their licensing of software content and who has at least three (3) years experience in software development. The arbitration shall be conducted with only such discovery as ordered by the arbitration panel (in accordance with the Commercial Rules) or agreed upon by Customer and Provider (the “Authorized Discovery”). As to compelling discovery from a third party, Customer and Provider may, if available, take advantage of, and initiate and resort to the use of, any federal or state court jurisdiction or power but solely for and limited to the purpose of obtaining such Authorized Discovery and thus not for any other purpose. Except as aforesaid, only the Commercial Rules, and not the federal or state law of any jurisdiction in which the arbitration is pending (and also not the federal or state law of any other state), shall govern discovery matters. The arbitration panel’s award shall be final, binding and nonappealable. The arbitration panel’s award shall be a “simple” award (which may, but need not, contain orders to perform, do or not do anything) and so shall not have any written reasons or findings of fact. The Nineteenth Judicial District Court of the State of Louisiana as well as the United States District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana (the “Preferred Courts”) shall have: (i) exclusive jurisdiction and venue over any action by a party hereto against the other party to nullify, vacate, set aside, revoke, challenge or otherwise contest the arbitration award; and, otherwise shall have nonexclusive jurisdiction and venue over any action concerning the enforcement of an arbitration award, or (ii) if, in the unlikely event, arbitration is not permitted by law, then exclusive jurisdiction and venue over all Arbitration Claims which are not permitted to be arbitrated. Each party unconditionally and irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction and venue of the Preferred Courts and neither party will object to such jurisdiction and venue on the grounds of lack of personal jurisdiction, inconvenient forum or otherwise. CUSTOMER AND PROVIDER IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING FOR, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO ANY AND ALL ARBITRATION CLAIMS. Except for remedies expressly provided for in this Agreement, the arbitration panel shall neither be empowered to award damages in excess of actual damages nor to award punitive damages. Subject to the above, the arbitration panel shall have the authority to require specific performance or impose other equitable relief hereunder, as well as imposing money damages and awards of attorneys' fees to the prevailing party.
11.2. Injunctive or Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Customer or Provider shall have the right at any time, whether during the pendency of the arbitration or otherwise, to seek any interim injunctive or other temporary or interim equitable relief in either of the Preferred Courts to obtain the benefit of Section 13.14 pending, or during the pendency of, the arbitration proceeding.
