2.2 CUSTOMER will not, at any time during the term of this Agreement and for a period of one (1) year following the expiration or termination hereof, directly or indirectly, employ, offer to employ or otherwise engage or solicit for employment or a contractor relationship any person who is now or at any time during the term of this Agreement, an employee of PROGRESS or any of its affiliates, without the other PROGRESS' written consent.
Section 3 - Confidentiality
3.1 For purposes of this Agreement, "Confidential Information" means all information disclosed, directly or indirectly, through any means of communication (whether electronic, written, graphic, oral, aural or visual), by or on behalf of one party (the "Discloser") to or for the benefit of the other party (the "Recipient") or any of its personnel, that relates to:
(a) Discloser's products, services, projects, productions and work product, and all business and technical information pertaining thereto (including, without limitation, reports, analyses, budgets, and technology (including prototypes, designs, specifications and implementations));

3.2 Recipient agrees that during the term and for a period of five (5) years thereafter it will
(a) not use, or authorize the use of, any Confidential Information for any purpose other than solely for the performance of its obligations under this Agreement (the "Purpose");
(b) hold all Confidential Information in strictest confidence and protect all Confidential Information with the same degree of care (but no less than a reasonable degree of care) normally used to protect its own confidential information; and
(c) take reasonable steps to prevent any Confidential Information or any information derived therefrom from being revealed to any person or entity other than to (i) those of its personnel (such term to include independent contractors) who have a legitimate need to know the Confidential Information to effectuate the Purpose and who are bound by confidentiality obligations prohibiting the further use and disclosure thereof, and (ii) those to whom Discloser has authorized in writing the disclosure of the Confidential Information. CUSTOMER shall ensure that all employees are familiar with and comply in all respects with the provisions of this Section (Confidentiality) of this Agreement, and that all independent contractors have agreed to terms no less protective of Progress' confidential information than those contained herein.

3.4 All rights in and title to all Confidential Information will remain with Discloser. Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement, nor the performance of PROGRESS' obligations hereunder, nor the furnishing of any Confidential Information, will be construed as granting or conferring to Recipient either expressly, by implication, or otherwise, any license or any right to use Discloser's Confidential Information. All materials representing or embodying Confidential Information that are furnished to Recipient remain the property of Discloser and, upon termination or expiration of this Agreement or promptly following Discloser's written request therefor, all such materials, together with all copies thereof made by or for Recipient, will be returned to Discloser or, at Discloser's sole discretion, destroyed by Recipient.
3.5 Recipient acknowledges that the unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information may cause Discloser irreparable harm and that money damages may be inadequate to compensate Discloser for such harm. Accordingly, Recipient agrees that, in addition to any other available remedies at law or in equity, Discloser will be entitled to seek equitable relief, including injunctive relief and/or specific performance, the granting of which shall not be subject to or conditioned upon any requirement of posting a bond or other security.
