LICENSEE will use its best efforts to minimize any required disclosure of the confidential information hereunder, and will provide prompt notice to AIA to permit intervention in advance of mandatory disclosure of the confidential information.

14.2 The failure of either party to enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of such provision or of the right of the party thereafter to enforce such provision.
