(a)           Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any information concerning or referring in any way to the business of Aceto, whether or not disclosed to or acquired by the Executive through or as a consequence of the Executive’s employment with the Company. For purposes of this Agreement, Confidential Information consists of information proprietary to Aceto which is not generally known to the public and which in the ordinary course of business is maintained by Aceto as confidential. By way of example and without limitation, Confidential Information consists of computer software, trade secrets, patents, inventions, copyrights, techniques, designs, and other technical information in any way concerning or referring to scientific, technical or mechanical aspects of Aceto’s products, concepts, processes, machines, engineering, research and development. Confidential Information also includes, without limitation, information in any way concerning or referring to Aceto’s business methods, business plans, forecasts and projections, operations, organizational structure, finances, customers, funding, pricing, costing, marketing, purchasing, merchandising, sales, products, product information, suppliers, customers, employees or their compensation, data processing, software and all other information designated by Aceto as “confidential,” whether or not marked or labeled “confidential”. Confidential Information shall not include any information or material that is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of a wrongful disclosure by (x) the Executive or (y) any other person bound by a duty of confidentiality or similar duty owed to Aceto.


(b)           Duty of Confidentiality. The Executive will maintain in confidence and will not, directly or indirectly, disclose or use (or allow others working with or related to the Executive to disclose or use), either during or after the Term, any Confidential Information belonging to Aceto, whether in oral, written, electronic or permanent form, except solely to the extent necessary to perform authorized services on behalf of Aceto. In this regard, the Executive is expressly permitted to release confidential information to governmental agencies or pursuant to any judicial process if counsel to Aceto reasonably determines that it is in the best interest of Aceto or if the Executive on advice of counsel is obligated to disclose such Confidential Information under applicable law; provided that prior to such disclosure the Executive shall inform the Company of the contemplated disclosure and will assist the Company at the Company’s expense in seeking to obtain confidential treatment of such disclosed Confidential Information. Upon termination of the Executive’s employment, or at the request of Aceto prior to his termination, the Executive shall deliver forthwith to Aceto all original Confidential Information (and all copies thereof) in the Executive’s possession or control belonging to Aceto and all tangible items embodying or containing Confidential Information. The Executive acknowledges receipt of the following notice under the Defend Trade Secrets Act: An individual shall not be held criminally or civilly liable under any Federal or State trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that is made in confidence to a Federal, State, or local government official or to an attorney solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law. An individual shall not be held criminally or civilly liable under any Federal or State trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that is made in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. An individual who files a lawsuit for retaliation by an employer for reporting a suspected violation of law may disclose the trade secret to the attorney of the individual and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if the individual files any document containing the trade secret under seal; and does not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order.
