by inspections, or by other tangible media. CI includes all financial disclosures
and CI from a third party.

prepared by Recipient, its employees or advisers, may be held by Recipient, provided Recipient keeps it confidential pursuant
to the terms of this Agreement. Material samples, device samples, and prototypes
