Information which is furnished by Intermediary, or by Company, to Undersigned, or its agents, is strictly confidential, may be used only in connection with investigation of the Company for its purpose for engaging Intermediary, and may not be disseminated to any party other than Company’s designated officers or Agents.  Under no circumstance shall Undersigned or its Agents reveal any Confidential Information, or the basis for receiving such information, to any employee, officer, or agent of the Company who is not expressly authorized herein, or in a separate written authorization from Company or Intermediary.
  3. AUTHORIZED THIRD PARTIES.  Notwithstanding the confidentiality and non-disclosure provisions above, Undersigned may furnish the Confidential Information to Undersigned’s attorneys, accountants, or other professional advisors, along with potential partners, investors, provided, however, that all such parties shall certify to Undersigned in writing that they are bound by the terms of this Agreement and ratify the substance hereof.
