Each party shall use its reasonable endeavours to prevent the unauthorised disclosure of any such information.
9.2 No party shall make, or permit any person to make, any public announcement concerning the agreement without the prior written consent of the other parties (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), except as required by law, any governmental or regulatory authority (including, without limitation, any relevant securities exchange), any court or other authority of competent jurisdiction.

provided that if Redbrick modifies or replaces the Redbrick Software, the modified or replacement Redbrick Software must comply with the warranties contained in clause 10.1 and the Customer shall have the same rights in respect thereof as it would have had under those clauses had the references to the date of these Conditions been references to the date on which such modification or replacement was made.

(b) a complaint or request about the other’s obligations under the Data Protection Legislation.
13.7 The Customer acknowledges that Redbrick is reliant on the Customer for direction as to the extent to which Redbrick is entitled to use and process the Customer Personal Data. Consequently, Redbrick will not be liable for any claim brought by a data subject arising from any action or omission by Redbrick, to the extent that such action or omission resulted directly from the Customer’s instructions.
14.1 Unless terminated earlier in accordance with these Conditions, the agreement shall continue for the minimum term set out in [Schedule 1][the Proposal Document] (if any) (known as the “Initial Term”) and shall automatically extend for 12-months (known as the “Extended Term”) at the end of the Initial Term and at the end of each Extended Term.
