The Receiving Party may use Confidential Information only for the purposes identified in this Agreement and shall disclose the Confidential Information only to its employees, agents or consultants who have a need to know the Confidential Information, have been advised of the confidentiality obligations related to the Confidential Information, and are under an obligation of confidentiality no less stringent than that contained herein.
