11.1 Confidential Information. All technology and know-how disclosed by one party (the “Disclosing Party”) to another party (the “Receiving Party”) hereunder (“Confidential Information”) shall be used solely and exclusively by Receiving Party in a manner consistent with the licenses granted hereunder and the purposes of this Agreement as stated in the preamble and recitals hereto; maintained in confidence by the Receiving Party; and shall not be disclosed to any non-party or used for any purpose except to exercise its rights and perform its obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Disclosing Party, except to the extent that the Receiving Party can demonstrate by competent written evidence that such information: (a) is known by the Receiving Party without obligations of confidentiality at the time of its receipt and, not through a prior disclosure by the Disclosing Party, as documented by the Receiving Party’s business records; (b) is in the public domain other than as a result of any breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party; (c) is subsequently disclosed to the Receiving Party on a non-confidential basis by a third party who may lawfully do so; or (d) is independently discovered or developed by the Receiving Party without the use of Confidential Information provided by the Disclosing Party and, in the case of MPP as the Receiving Party, other than in connection with the MPP License Agreement, as documented by the Receiving Party’s business records. Notwithstanding the foregoing, none of the technology and know-how disclosed by Gilead through MPP under this Agreement shall be considered MPP’s Confidential Information. Instead, all technology and know-how disclosed by Gilead through MPP hereunder shall be deemed to be Gilead’s Confidential Information rather than MPP’s Confidential Information. Where any technology and know-how was originally disclosed by Licensee to MPP and, in turn, disclosed by MPP to Gilead, such technology and know-how shall be deemed to be Licensee’s Confidential Information. Within thirty (30) days after any expiration or termination of this Agreement, Receiving Party shall destroy (and certify to the Disclosing Party such destruction) or return all Confidential Information provided by the Disclosing Party except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement. One (1) copy of the Confidential Information may be retained in the Receiving Party’s files solely for archival purposes as a means of determining any continuing or surviving obligations under this Agreement. The confidentiality obligations under this Agreement shall survive this Agreement for a period of five (5) years. To the extent Gilead receives any Confidential Information from Licensee relating to EVG, EVG Product, EVG Combination Product or Quad, Gilead will have the right to disclose such Confidential Information to Japan Tobacco, provided such disclosure remains subject to the obligations of confidentiality and non-disclosure set forth in the Japan Tobacco Agreement.

11.2 Press Release. Each party may disclose to third parties or make public statements, by press release or otherwise, regarding the existence of this Agreement, the identity of the parties, the terms, conditions and subject matter of this Agreement, or otherwise in reference to this Agreement, provided such disclosures or statements are accurate and complete with respect to the subject matter thereof and the information disclosed therein.

Except as provided for under Sections 6.5 and 11.2, no party shall use any other party’s name, logo or trademarks for any purpose including without limitation publicity or advertising, except with the prior written consent of the other party.
