If Deployment Attributes are measurable by a ping from Looker's license server, the ping will serve as this report. If there is a discrepancy between the Scope of Use or the Deployment Attributes purchased by Customer and Customer's actual usage, Looker may, at its expense and not more frequently than once per calendar year, review Customer's records relating to Customer's use of the Services. Any such review will be conducted with prior written notice, during regular business hours at Customer's premises and will not unreasonably interfere with Customer's business. If the review indicates an underpayment, Customer will pay the additional fees associated with the underpayment. If the underpayment is greater than 5% of the amount paid by Customer for the review period, Customer will also pay Looker's reasonable expenses of the review.
12.1. Intellectual Property Rights. Except as expressly described in this Agreement, the Agreement does not grant either party any rights, implied or otherwise, to the other's content or Intellectual Property. As between the parties, Customer retains all Intellectual Property Rights in Customer Data and Looker retains all Intellectual Property Rights in the Services and Software.

13.1. Use and Disclosure of Confidential Information.

Notwithstanding any other provision in the Agreement, the Recipient may disclose the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information (a) to its Delegates who have a need to know and who are bound by confidentiality obligations at least as protective as those in this Section 13 (Confidentiality); (b) with the Disclosing Party's written consent; or (c) as strictly necessary to comply with Legal Process, provided the Recipient promptly notifies the Disclosing Party prior to such disclosure unless the Recipient is legally prohibited from doing so.
