a. Definition of Confidential Information. As used herein, "Confidential Information" means all confidential information disclosed by a Party ("Disclosing Party") to the other Party ("Receiving Party"), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be understood to be confidential given the nature of the information and the circumstances of disclosure.

d. Injunctive Relief. Each Party acknowledges that the extent of damages in the event of any threatened or actual breach of this Section 7 would be difficult or impossible to ascertain and that there would be available no adequate remedy at law in the event of any such breach. Each Party therefore agrees that, in the event it breaches this Section 7, the other Party will be entitled to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief, in addition to any other relief to which it may be entitled at law or in equity.
