5.1 Maintenance of Confidential Information. The Contractor acknowledges that in
the course of its appointment  hereunder the Contractor will, either directly or
indirectly,  have access to and be entrusted  with  information  (whether  oral,
written or by inspection) relating to the Company or its respective  affiliates,
associates or customers (the  "Confidential  Information").  For the purposes of
this Agreement, "Confidential Information" includes, without limitation, any and
all Developments (as defined herein),  trade secrets,  inventions,  innovations,

information,  sales or marketing  plans,  competitive  analysis  reports and any
other thing or information whatsoever,  whether copyrightable or uncopyrightable
or patentable or unpatentable. The Contractor acknowledges that the Confidential
Information  constitutes a proprietary  right,  which the Company is entitled to
protect.  Accordingly  the Contractor  covenants and agrees that during the Term
and  thereafter  until  such time as all the  Confidential  Information  becomes
publicly known and made generally available through no action or inaction of the
Contractor,  the  Contractor  will keep in strict  confidence  the  Confidential
Information and shall not,  without prior written consent of the Company in each
instance,  disclose, use or otherwise disseminate the Confidential  Information,
directly or indirectly, to any third party.

5.2  Exceptions.  The  general  prohibition  contained  in Section 0 against the
unauthorized  disclosure,  use or dissemination of the Confidential  Information
shall not apply in respect of any Confidential Information that:

     (a)  is available to the public generally in the form disclosed;

     (b)  becomes part of the public domain through no fault of the Contractor;

     (c)  is already in the lawful  possession of the  Contractor at the time of
          receipt of the Confidential Information; or

     (d)  is compelled by  applicable  law to be  disclosed,  provided  that the
          Contractor gives the Company prompt written notice of such requirement
          prior to such disclosure and provides assistance in obtaining an order
          protecting the Confidential Information from public disclosure.

5.3  Developments.  Any  information,  data,  work product or any other thing or
documentation   whatsoever  which  the  Contractor,   either  by  itself  or  in
conjunction  with any third  party,  conceives,  makes,  develops,  acquires  or
acquires  knowledge of during the  Contractor's  appointment with the Company or
which the Contractor,  either by itself or in conjunction  with any third party,
shall conceive, make, develop, acquire or acquire knowledge of (collectively the
"Developments")  during  the Term or at any time  thereafter  during  which  the
Contractor  is engaged by the  Company  that is related to the  business  of the
Company shall automatically form part of the Confidential  Information and shall
become and remain the sole and exclusive  property of the Company.  Accordingly,
the Contractor  does hereby  irrevocably,  exclusively  and  absolutely  assign,
transfer and convey to the Company in perpetuity all worldwide right,  title and
interest  in and to any and all  Developments  and other  rights  of  whatsoever
nature  and kind in or  arising  from or  pertaining  to all  such  Developments
created or  produced  by the  Contractor  during the course of  performing  this

                                       4
<PAGE>
Agreement,  including,  without limitation, the right to effect any registration
in the world to protect the foregoing  rights.  The Company shall have the sole,
absolute and unlimited  right  throughout the world,  therefore,  to protect the
Developments by patent, copyright, industrial design, trademark or otherwise and
to make,  have made,  use,  reconstruct,  repair,  modify,  reproduce,  publish,
distribute  and sell the  Developments,  in whole  or in part,  or  combine  the
Developments  with any other matter,  or not use the Developments at all, as the
Company sees fit.

5.4  Protection of  Developments.  The Contractor  does hereby agree that,  both
before and after the termination of this Agreement, the Contractor shall perform
such further acts and execute and deliver  such further  instruments,  writings,
documents and assurances  (including,  without limitation,  specific assignments
and other  documentation which may be required anywhere in the world to register
evidence of ownership  of the rights  assigned  pursuant  hereto) as the Company
shall  reasonably  require in order to give full  effect to the true  intent and
purpose of the assignment made under Section 0 hereof. If the Company is for any
reason unable, after reasonable effort, to secure execution by the Contractor on
documents  needed to effect any  registration  or to apply for or prosecute  any
right  or  protection  relating  to  the  Developments,  the  Contractor  hereby
designates and appoints the Company and its duly authorized  officers and agents
as the Contractor's agent and attorney to act for and in the Contractor's behalf
and  stead to  execute  and file any such  document  and do all  other  lawfully
permitted  acts  necessary  or advisable in the opinion of the Company to effect
such  registration  or to apply for or prosecute such right or protection,  with
the same legal force and effect as if executed by the Contractor.

5.5  Remedies.  The parties to this  Agreement  recognize  that any violation or
threatened  violation by the  Contractor of any of the  provisions  contained in
