RETURN OF INFORMATION EMPLOYEE agrees, upon request of the COMPANY or upon leaving the employ of the COMPANY, to return promptly to the COMPANY the original and all copies of any documents, reports, notes or other materials incorporating or reflecting, in any way, any Proprietary Information in the possession or under the control of EMPLOYEE. IV. INVENTION BELONGS TO THE COMPANY EMPLOYEE acknowledges and agrees that any inventions, discoveries or improvements which EMPLOYEE has conceived or made or may conceive or make during EMPLOYEE's employment with the COMPANY, whether made individually or jointly with others, which: (1) relate or pertain to, or are in any way connected with, the systems, products, apparatus or methods utilized, or are the subject of research or development (actual or anticipated) by the COMPANY: or (2) utilize equipment, supplies, facilities or Proprietary Information belonging to the COMPANY (collectively the "Inventions") shall be the sole exclusive property of the COMPANY and the Inventions shall be deemed to be works for hire. (A) EMPLOYEE agrees to make prompt and full disclosure to the COMPANY of all inventions, discoveries or improvements made by EMPLOYEE during the term of the Agreement, solely or jointly with others, whether or not such invention, discovery or improvement will actually become the property of the COMPANY pursuant to this Agreement.

Thus, EMPLOYEE should not use any information which any prior employer identified specifically as a trade secret or as Proprietary Information. However, EMPLOYEE is not required to maintain the confidentiality of any information which is: (1) known to EMPLOYEE prior to the disclosure by the prior employer; or (2) known, or becomes known, to third parties knowledgeable in the industry without the fault or negligence of EMPLOYEE; or (3) subsequently rightly received from a third party without restrictions regarding the secrecy or confidentiality; or (4) independently developed by EMPLOYEE or by EMPLOYEE without recourse to the "trade secret" of another; or (5) furnished by a prior employer to a third party without restriction or obligation to maintain the secrecy or the confidentiality of such information; or (6) approved for release by the owner of the "trade secret" information.
