4.5 Security Incident Response.  Upon becoming aware of a Security Incident that affects Company or any data subject, Noonlight will notify Company without undue delay and will provide information relating to the Security Incident as it becomes known or as is reasonably requested by Company.  Noonlight will also take reasonable steps to mitigate and, where possible, to remedy the effects of any Security Incident.
