          STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER

          Thomas S. Zilly United States District Judge.

         1. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS

         Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection may be warranted. Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the Court to enter the following Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this agreement is consistent with LCR 26(c). It does not confer blanket protection on all disclosures or responses to discovery, the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles, and it does not presumptively entitle parties to file confidential information under seal. The parties to this action (the “Parties”) stipulate that the following Protective Order applies to documents and information produced or disclosed in this case:

         2. “CONFIDENTIAL” MATERIAL

         “Confidential” material shall include the following documents and tangible things produced or otherwise exchanged:

(b) Information furnished to the disclosing party in confidence by any third party, which information is not known or freely accessible to the general public;
(c) Documents containing or disclosing social security numbers, financial account numbers, access codes, passwords, or similar personal private information or security measures.

         3. SCOPE

Confidential material must be stored and maintained by a receiving party at a location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons authorized under this agreement.

         4.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items.

         Unless otherwise ordered by the Court or permitted in writing by the designating party, a receiving party may disclose any confidential material only to:

(a) the receiving party's counsel of record in this action, as well as employees of counsel to whom it is reasonably necessary to disclose the information for this litigation;
(b) the officers, directors, and employees (including in-house counsel) of the receiving party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this litigation, unless the parties agree that a particular document or material produced is for Attorney's Eyes Only and is so designated;
