The Receiving Party further agrees to destroy all documents, memoranda, notes or other writings prepared by it or any of its directors, officers, agents, employees, representatives or advisers for it or in its possession which incorporate any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information (except to the extent required by law or relevant regulatory body). If the Disclosing Party should so require, the Receiving Party shall provide to the Disclosing Party within thirty (30) days of the Disclosing Party’s written request for the return or destruction of its Confidential Information under this clause I, a certificate executed by a duly authorized officer of the Receiving Party confirming that the Receiving Party has complied with all of its obligations under this clause.
