necessary to carry out his or her duties with respect to the Project.

Information in this Agreement will cease to apply to 5 years after the date of
this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement prohibits Employee from disclosing
Confidential Information under a court order; provided, however, that before
disclosing Confidential Information under a court order, Employee must give
written notice to Capella that the court order has been issued.

      5. RETURN OF INFORMATION. Upon the written request of Capella, Employee
must return to Capella, or certify that he/she has destroyed, all tangible
Confidential Information in his/her possession, including all copies.

      6. MISCELLANEOUS. This Agreement is governed by and construed in
accordance with the laws of Minnesota, without regard to principles of conflicts
of law. This Agreement contains the entire and only agreement between the
Capella and Employee relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and

understandings between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this
Agreement. No provision of this Agreement may be deemed modified, amended,
waived or revoked except in a writing signed by both Capella and Employee.
