I agree to keep confidential all “sensitive information” provided by the Colorado Information Analysis Center (CIAC) and to protect its confidentiality and restrict its access based on a right and need to know. “Sensitive information” disseminated by the CIAC shall not be disseminated by the recipient without permission from the CIAC and shall only be disseminated via official government e-mail. It shall not be disseminated via commercial ISP or webmail services, i.e. Yahoo or Gmail.
  3. I understand that the unauthorized disclosure of “sensitive information” by me could cause damage or irreparable injury to future or ongoing investigations and operations. I understand that I am obligated to comply with the CIAC standard operating procedures regarding the authorized disclosure of such information.
  4. I hereby assign to the State of Colorado all royalties, remunerations, and emoluments that have resulted, will result, or may result from any disclosure, publication, or revelation of “sensitive information” not consistent with the terms of this Agreement.
  5. I understand the State of Colorado may seek any remedy available to enforce this Agreement. Actions may include the termination of access to CIAC information, criminal prosecution, and/or the application of a court order prohibiting disclosure of “sensitive information” in breach of this Agreement. I hereby waive any and all rights that I may have to object to the issuance of any such order.
  6. I understand that all “sensitive information” to which I have access or may obtain access by signing this Agreement is now and will remain the property of, or under the control of the CIAC unless and until otherwise determined by an authorized official or final ruling of a court of law.
