Nothing in this Agreement will be construed as a representation or inference that the other party will not develop products, or have products developed for it, that, without violation of this Section 9, compete with the products or services contemplated by the other’s Confidential Information. This Agreement shall not prevent a party from using information that is standard or generic, nor shall the mere exposure or access by a party or its personnel to the other party’s Confidential Information be construed to restrict the reassignment or deployment of its personnel in its sole discretion.
