Notwithstanding the above, Confidential Information shall also include (i) the fact that discussions and negotiations regarding a Transaction are ongoing, (ii) the terms of any discussions and negotiations related to the parties' possible Transaction, and (iii) any reports or other documents resulting from such Confidential Information, including reports prepared by the Recipient for its internal use. It is expressly understood by the parties that Confidential Information includes written information whether or not marked “secret” or “confidential,” and information disclosed orally or in writing or by any other media. 2. Exceptions. The Recipient shall not be required to maintain the confidentiality of those portions of the Confidential Information that (i) become generally available to the public other than as result of a disclosure by the Recipient, (ii) were available to the Recipient on a non-confidential basis prior to the disclosure of such Confidential Information to the Recipient pursuant to this Agreement, provided that the source of such information was not known to be bound by a confidentiality agreement with respect to such material, (iii) are independently developed or acquired without violation of this Agreement or the use of the Confidential Information, (iv) become available or is acquired on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the Disclosing Party provided that the source of such information was not known to be bound by a confidentiality agreement with respect to such material, or (v) are approved for release by written authorization of the Disclosing Party.
