6.1 General Obligations. The parties acknowledge and agree that, during the Term of this Agreement they may receive or be exposed to certain Confidential Information. Each party acknowledges that the Confidential Information of the other is confidential and proprietary and agrees not to disclose such Confidential Information to anyone other than employees or agents of the receiving party who have a need to know such information. In addition, the receiving party agrees that it will not, without the prior written consent of the disclosing party, use the Confidential Information for any purpose other than to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. Each party shall protect the Confidential Information of the other at least to the same extent it protects its own similar information, but in no event using less than reasonable care.

Because MIRADOR will not maintain, use, disclose or transfer PHI on behalf of Customer, the parties agree that MIRADOR will not be a Business Associate, as defined under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, in connection with this Agreement. Customer shall not disclose PHI to MIRADOR and shall remove all PHI from medical devices, including any associated data storage media, before providing such devices to MIRADOR for maintenance and repair. In the event Customer fails to fully remove PHI from medical devices provided to MIRADOR , MIRADOR shall promptly return such devices to Customer and will not otherwise disclose PHI to any third party except as required by law or approved by Customer.
