Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may disclose such Confidential Information to those of its employees who need to know such information for purposes of performing the Services.

11.9.Miscellaneous. This Agreement, including all Order Forms, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties, and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, proposals or representations, written or oral, concerning its subject matter. No modification, amendment, or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions in the body of this Agreement and any Order Form, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail unless expressly stated otherwise in such Order Form. Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited and unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall be replaced with a valid provision that is closer to the scope and intent of the invalid provision and shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions hereof. This Agreement may be executed in two (2) counterparts with the exact same contents, which taken together shall form one legal instrument.
