use such information solely for the purposes of this Agreement, will not sell (as defined by the Privacy Laws) to third parties and will restrict disclosure of PI to those employees with a need to know and shall not further disclose such information to any third party.

Advocate shall employ commercially reasonable physical, administrative, and technical security controls appropriately tailored to the nature and scope of its activities and the sensitivity of the underlying data which shall in no instance be less protective than those used by the Advocate to secure and retain the confidentiality of its own information of a like kind and in all instances will conform to any legal requirements and regulatory guidance applicable to the types of data being transferred.
Advocate agrees that it shall not conduct any advertising or marketing campaigns, including,but not limited to, telemarketing, e-mail, radio, television or print advertising, in order to generate referrals for the Program and instead the Program is only intended for existing Comcast Business customers to refer businesses that they already know and who have expressed an interest in products or services provided by Comcast Business.
