         Pursuant to the parties' Stipulated Motion for Protective Order (Dkt. No. 14), the Court ORDERS as follows:


         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 stipulate that the following Protective Order applies to documents and information produced or disclosed in this case.


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

(a) Trade secret or otherwise proprietary material, including but not limited to software and source code;

(c) Sensitive financial information that is not otherwise publicly available;
(d) Confidential personal information for current and former employees of the parties, or of third parties;
(e) Confidential and sensitive investigative files;
(f) Accounting or audit information, including but not limited to any financial account number, access code, or password;
(g) Documents that otherwise describe, contain or disclose internal company or organizational information, including student, faculty, or customer information, internal policy discussions, competitive or strategic initiatives, business plans and other business-related information; where such information is not readily ascertainable and with respect to which the party asserting confidentiality has taken reasonable steps to maintain its confidentiality; and
(h) Any other information that a party in good faith believes constitutes or includes sensitive business or organizational information, or personal information or information furnished in confidence by any third party, which information is not known or freely accessible to the general public.

However, the protections conferred by this agreement do not cover information that is in the public domain or becomes part of the public domain through trial or otherwise.


         4.1 Basic Principles.
