    1. not available to the public at large; or

    3. a reasonable person knows, or reasonably should understand, to be confidential.

    1. not to disclose the Confidential Content to parties not covered by this Agreement;
    2. not to use the Confidential Content for purposes other than the Confidential Question;
    3. to take reasonable steps to protect the Confidential Content, these steps must be at least as protective as those the invited User takes to protect own Confidential Content;
    4. to notify the Question Owner and the other invited Users promptly upon discovery of any unauthorised use or disclosure of Confidential Content; and
    5. to cooperate with them to help regain control of the Confidential Content and prevent further unauthorised use or disclosure of it.

  1. The invited Users may disclose the Question Owner’s Confidential Content if required to comply with a court order or other government demand that has the force of law. Before doing so, the selected Contributors must give the Question Owner prior notice to provide a reasonable chance to seek a protective order.
