Company will use the Confidential Information only to further the relationship between Sprint and Company and shall not disclose Confidential Information to any third party without the written consent of Sprint. Company must protect Confidential Information from unauthorized use or disclosure with same degree of care as to uses to protect its own information of a like nature, but in no event with any less degree of care than reasonable care. Company does not have an obligation to protect Confidential Information that is: (a) in the public domain through no fault of Company; (b) within the legitimate possession of Company, with no confidentiality obligations to Sprint or a third party; (c) lawfully received from a third party having rights in the information without restriction, and without notice of any restriction against its further disclosure; or (d) independently developed by Company without breaching this Agreement or by parties who have not had, either directly or indirectly, access to or knowledge of the Confidential Information.

The obligations in this Paragraph 7 survive termination of this Agreement.

Company acknowledges that Sprint will provide Company with CPNI information for Company Lines only. Under federal law, Company has a right, and Sprint has a duty, to protect the confidentiality of Companys CPNI. By signing this Agreement, Company authorizes Sprint to use, disclose, share or permit access to Company CPNI with the other divisions of Sprint Corporation for the purposes of determining and offering other Sprint Corporation communications-related products and services that may interest Company. The divisions of Sprint Corporation include the local, long distance. PCS and other divisions of Sprint Corporation and joint-venture partners providing communications-related services. In addition, Sprint may disclose, share or permit access to Companys CPNI on a limited, as-needed basis with trusted agents and contractors that assist Sprint in providing Company with Services. Agents, contractors and joint-venture partners share a concomitant duty to protect Companys CPNI. Sprint will not disclose or sell Companys CPNI to third parties, unless otherwise required to do so by operation of law.
If Company does not want Sprint to use or share Companys CPNI with the other divisions of Sprint Corporation for the purposes of determining and offering communications-related products and services that are unrelated to the Products and Services subject to this Agreement, Company may revoke this authorization at any time by calling 1-800-865-7786 and following the voice prompts. (For TTY Users: Dial 711 or 1-800-877-8973 to contact a TRS communications assistant (CA). Request the CA to dial 1-800-865-7786 and notify Sprint that you wish opt-out.) Such a decision by Company will not have any impact on its Services. Any approval or denial of approval for the use of Companys CPNI, outside the service to which Company already subscribes, is valid until Company affirmatively revokes or limits such approval. If Company makes the aforementioned revocation, it may subsequently re-authorize such use of Company CPNI by calling the above listed number.
