OWNERSHIP: It is expressly agreed and understood by and between the parties that all ideas, designs, works, writings, and other materials conceived, produced, or developed by Icon pursuant to or in furtherance of the Services (collectively the “Material”) shall be deemed the sole property of Icon. To the extent that any such Materials are not automatically deemed the property of Icon, Customer hereby assigns to Icon all right, title and interest to such Material. For clarity, Customer retains all ownership, including copyright, in and to the Content.

DISCLAIMERS: Icon makes the following disclaimers in connection with its provision of the Services hereunder:
While Icon will use reasonable commercial efforts to provide the Services, Icon does not guarantee or control third party action or compliance (e.g., if Icon submits a Song to a playlist, there is no guarantee that the Song will remain on such playlist; likewise, if Icon submits a press release, there is no guarantee that such press release will be picked up by any given media outlet). Icon’s Services are limited to the Campaign and Icon shall take no responsibility for matters beyond its control;
Icon does not own or work for the playlists, media outlets, or other third party content providers that Icon may engage with in connection with a Campaign;
In connection with a Campaign, Icon will put a Song on a playlist for a maximum of thirty (30) days. Icon has no obligation to put a Song on a playlist for longer than thirty (30) days;
Icon does not differentiate between fake and real streams or views in terms of performance statistics for any Song or Video associated with a Campaign; and
Customer hereby authorizes Icon to release any and all information about him/her/it, and he/she/it agrees that Icon does not need approval from her/him/it to release any information or stories regarding her/him/it in the form of press releases, public statements, or other such writings. Stories and other released writings may contain incorrect information about Customer or the Content. Such information may result from Icon being misinformed or due to an unintentional error and/or omission, or for other reasons. Icon hereby informs Customer that he/she/it may suffer embarrassment and annoyance because of correct or incorrect publicity. Customer declares that he/she/it understands that he/she/it may suffer mental anguish and/or monetary loss due to publicity.

Confidential Information: Both parties acknowledge that during the Term of this Agreement, they may learn and become privy to Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all nonpublic and confidential information set forth in tangible materials or in an unwritten form, which is disclosed during the Term of this Agreement, including: (i) this Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein, (ii) all information marked confidential, restricted, or proprietary to the party, and (iii) any other information that is treated as confidential by the party and would be reasonably understood to be confidential, whether or not so marked. Confidential Information shall also include attorney-client privileged materials or attorney work product, third party contracts, rates and pricing, information with respect to competitors, strategic plans, account information, research information, trade secrets, financial/accounting information (including assets, expenditures, mergers, acquisitions, divestures, billing collections, revenues and finances), human resources and personnel information, marketing/sales information, information regarding businesses, plans, licenses, internal or external audits, law suits, regulatory compliance or other information or data obtained, received, transmitted, processed stored, archived, or maintained by the party under this Agreement. Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) has become publicly available without breach of this Agreement, (ii) is received from a third party who did not acquire or disclose such information by a wrongful or tortious act, or (iii) can be shown by documentation to have been independently developed by the receiving party without reference to any Confidential Information. Specific aspects or details of Confidential Information shall not be deemed to be within the public domain or in the possession of a party merely because the Confidential Information is embraced by more general information in the public domain or in the possession of such party. Further, any combination of Confidential Information shall not be considered in the public domain or in the possession of a party merely because individual elements of such Confidential Information are in the public domain or in the possession of such party unless the combination and its principles are in the public domain or in the possession of such party.

Icon’s Use of Confidentiality: Confidential Information shall not be utilized by Icon for any purpose other than for performance under this Agreement and shall not be sold, assigned, leased, commercially exploited or otherwise provided to third parties by or on behalf of Icon or by Icon’s personnel. Icon may disclose Confidential Information to their affiliates, auditors, attorneys, accountants, consultants, contractors, and subcontractors, where (i) use by such person or entity is authorized under this Agreement, (ii) such disclosure is necessary for the performances of such person’s or entity’s obligations under or with respect to this Agreement or otherwise naturally occurs in such person’s or entity’s scope of responsibility, (iii) the person or entity (and its applicable officers and employees) agrees in writing to assume the obligations consisted with this provision and, (iv) Icon assumes full responsibility for the acts or omissions of such person or entity regarding their use and disclosure of such Confidential Information and Icon takes all reasonable measures to ensure the Confidential information is not disclosed or used in contravention of this Agreement.
Breach of Confidentiality: Icon shall (i) expeditiously notify Customer of any breach or potential breach of security relating to the Confidential Information, (ii) investigate such breach or potential breach and determine the cause of such, (iii) remediate the effects of such breach or potential breach of security, and (iv) provide Customer with such assurances as Customer request that such breach or potential breach will not recur.

Disclosure of Confidential Information: If Icon is required by applicable law, rule or regulation of a governmental authority or self governing regulatory organization to provide public disclosure of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated herein, Icon will use all reasonable efforts to coordinate the disclosure with Customer before making such disclosure and an application for confidential treatment of certain terms (which terms will be agreed upon by the parties) of this Agreement. Icon will provide Customer for review a copy of any proposed disclosure of this Agreement or its terms and any application for confidential treatment prior to the time any such disclosure or application is made and the parties will work together in good faith to cause the disclosure or application to be acceptable to both parties.
Termination: Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, each receiving party shall (i) return to the disclosing party all Confidential Information provided in writing by the disclosing party to the receiving party, and (ii) destroy copies of memoranda and notes prepared by the receiving party or any of its employees or agents that contain Confidential Information of the disclosing party. The return of any Confidential Information will not relieve the receiving party of any of its obligations hereunder. These provisions shall survive expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.
RELEASE OF CLAIMS: Customer hereby expressly releases Icon from and against any and all claims, demands, damages, liabilities, injuries, causes of action, suits, grievances, arbitrations, promises, obligations, costs, expenses, attorney's fees, at law or in equity, of every nature, character or description whatsoever, whether known or unknown or suspected or unsuspected or anticipated or unanticipated, which the Customer ever had, now has or may have in the future, which arise out of, may arise out of, pertain to, concern, or are connected with any contract, tort, statutory violation, violation of fiduciary duty, representation, non-disclosure, act, omission to act, fact, error, matter or thing whatsoever occurring which are based on or arise in connection with the Services or otherwise with this Agreement.
