STIPULATION GOVERNING THE DESIGNATION AND HANDLING OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND INFORMATION
I.PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS
Disclosure and discovery activity in this action are likely to involve production of confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection from public disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting or defending this litigation would be warranted. Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to the following Stipulation Governing the Designation and Handling of Confidential Documents and Information and request that the Court enter this Stipulation as an Order of the Court ("Stipulated Protective Order").
The parties acknowledge that this Stipulated Protective Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the protection it affords extends only to the limited information or items that are entitled under the applicable legal principles to treatment as confidential. The parties further acknowledge that this Stipulated Protective Order creates no entitlement to file confidential information under seal; Central District Local Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed and reflects the standards that will be applied when a Party seeks permission from the Court to file material under seal.

Confidential Material includes: a) personal and financial information of Plaintiff or any other individual; b) sensitive customer information such as mailing addresses, account numbers, and account information; c) non-public revenue, cost, sales and financial information, and projections; d) non-public marketing plans; e) pricing information; and f) any other information the Producing Party can demonstrate is sufficiently sensitive that disclosure would reveal business, competitive, proprietary, or financial information of the Producing Party.
