15.1.3. The provisions of clauses 15.1.1 and 15.1.2 shall not apply to any information which:
- is or becomes public knowledge other than by a breach of this clause;
- is received from a third party who lawfully acquired it and who is under no obligation restricting its disclosure;
- is in the possession of the receiving party without restriction in relation to disclosure before the date of receipt from the disclosing party; or
- is independently developed without access to the Confidential Information.
Our policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This policy statement tells You how we collect information from You and how we use it. We follow five core principles of privacy protection in the operation of its Application:
- Notice/Awareness of MRI’ information practices
- Choice/Consent to provide information
- Access/Participation to/in Your own data
- Integrity/Security of the Data Collected
- Enforcement/Redress through self-regulation.
15.3. Customer Data
15.3.1. You acknowledge that:
- MRI may require access to the Customer Data to exercise its rights and perform its obligations under these Terms; and
- to the extent that this is necessary but subject to clause 15.1, MRI may authorise its officers, and employees to access the Customer Data for this purpose.
15.3.2. You must arrange all consents and approvals that are necessary for MRI to access the Customer Data as described in clause 15.3.1.:
15.3.3. You acknowledge and agree that to the extent Customer Data contains personal information, in collecting, holding and processing that information through the Service, MRI is acting as an agent of yours for the purposes of applicable privacy law. You must obtain all necessary consents from the relevant individual to enable MRI to collect, use, hold and process that information in accordance with these Terms.
16. Disclosure of Customer Data following Government Demand
MRI adheres to the same principles for all requests from government agencies for user data, requiring governmental entities to follow the applicable laws, rules and procedures for requesting customer data. MRI does not provide any government with direct and unfettered access to our customers’ data, and we do not provide any government with our encryption keys or the ability to break our encryption. If a government wants customer data, it needs to follow applicable legal process – meaning, it must serve us with a warrant or court order for content or a subpoena for subscriber information or other non-content data.
We require that any requests be targeted at specific accounts and identifiers. MRI’s compliance team reviews government demands for user data to ensure the requests are valid, rejects those that are not valid, and only provides the data specified in the legal order.
Unless the warrant or court order prohibits disclosure to You, upon receipt of any third party request for Customer Data, MRI will promptly notify Customer. If MRI is not required by law to disclose the Customer Data, MRI will reject the request. If the request is valid and MRI could be compelled to disclose the requested information, MRI will attempt to redirect the third party to request the Customer Data from Customer.
17.Data Protection and Security
MRI is committed to helping protect the security of Customer’s information. We have implemented and will maintain and follow appropriate technical and organisational measures intended to protect Customer Data against accidental, unauthorised or unlawful access, disclosure, alteration, loss, or destruction.

Security Roles and Responsibilities. MRI personnel with access to Customer Data are subject to confidentiality obligations.|

|Access Control||Access Policy. MRI maintains a record of security privileges of individuals having access to Customer Data. Access Authorisation

|Information Security Incident Management||Incident Response Process
|Business Continuity Management||
|Third-Party Penetration Testing||Security Assessments MRI tests all code for security vulnerabilities before release, and regularly scans our network and systems for vulnerabilities. Third-party assessments are also conducted regularly against OWASP and other global standards. Testing includes:
18. Security Incident Notification
If MRI becomes aware of any unlawful access to any Customer Data stored on MRI’s equipment or in MRI’s facilities, or unauthorised access to such equipment or facilities resulting in loss, disclosure, or alteration of Customer Data (each a “Security Incident”), MRI will promptly:
- Notify Customer of the Security Incident;

It is Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure Customer’s administrators maintain accurate contact information on their MRI account profile. MRI’s obligation to report or respond to a Security Incident under this section is not an acknowledgement by MRI of any fault or liability with respect to the Security Incident.
Customer must notify MRI promptly about any possible misuse of its accounts or authentication credentials or any security incident related to MRI.
