You acknowledge and agree that the Service operates on, or with, or using application programming interfaces (“APIs”) and/or other services operated or provided by third parties (“Third Party Services”).

The Recipient may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that it is required to be disclosed pursuant to a statutory or regulatory provision or court order, provided that the Recipient provides prior notice of such disclosure to the Disclosing Party, unless such notice is prohibited by law, rule, regulation or court order.

These confidentiality obligations shall remain in effect for so long as the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party is retained.
