You also agree not to share any of the Information in a showcase or portfolio of work, or in any way share work, unless you have sought and been given explicit permission by franklyfluent to do so. You acknowledge that due to the potentially sensitive commercial nature of the Information franklyfluent may decline to give such permission without giving reasons for such refusal.

1.4  The obligation of non-disclosure will not apply to Information which:

a is or becomes a matter of public knowledge through no fault of or action of yours;

b was rightfully in your possession prior to receipt from franklyfluent;

c was rightfully obtained by you from a third party who is lawfully in possession of such Information without restriction;

d is independently developed by you without reference to the Information which is considered confidential within this Agreement, and can be so proven in writing; or

e is required by judicial order.

1.5  Whenever requested by franklyfluent, you shall immediately return the Information in all its forms and versions or, at franklyfluent’s option, destroy all Information.

1.6  Your obligation of confidentiality will continue indefinitely, or until all the Information in all its forms and versions has entered the public domain.
