OWNERSHIP OF WORK PRODUCT


a.    WebSideStory will own all Work Product (as defined in this Agreement).
All Work Product will be considered work made for hire by you and owned by
WebSideStory.

b.    If any of the Work Product may not, by operation of law, be considered
work made for hire by you for WebSideStory, or if ownership of all right, title,
and interest of the intellectual property rights therein will not otherwise vest
exclusively in WebSideStory, you agree to assign, and upon creation thereof
automatically assign, without further consideration, the ownership of all Trade
Secrets as defined in this Agreement, U.S. and international copyrights,
patentable inventions, and other intellectual property rights therein to
WebSideStory, its successors, and assigns.

c.    WebSideStory, its successors, and assigns, will have the right to obtain
and hold in its or their own name copyrights, registrations, and any other
protection available in the foregoing.

d.    You agree to perform, upon the reasonable request of WebSideStory, during
or after your employment, such further acts as may be necessary or desirable to
transfer, perfect, and defend WebSideStory's ownership of the Work Product. When
requested, you will:

      patents with respect to the Work Product in any countries;

3.    provide testimony in connection with any proceeding affecting the right,
      title, or interest of WebSideStory in any Work Product; and

documentation, technology, or other work product that is now contained in any of
the products or systems, including development and support systems, of
WebSideStory to the extent you conceived, developed, or delivered such Work
Product to WebSideStory prior to the date of this Agreement while you were

EXCEPTIONS Except as set forth above, WebSideStory will not make claim to any
invention for which no equipment, supplies, facilities, or WebSideStory
confidential information was used, which was developed entirely on your own
time, and which does not (i) relate to the business of WebSideStory (ii) relate
to WebSideStory's actual or demonstrable anticipated research or development, or
(iii) result from any work performed by you for Employer.

YOU AGREE TO KEEP WEBSIDESTORY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IN STRICT CONFIDENCE.

WEBSIDESTORY CONFIDENTIALITY Your position with WebSideStory requires
considerable responsibility and trust. Relying on your ethical responsibility
and undivided loyalty, WebSideStory expects to entrust you with highly sensitive
confidential, restricted, and proprietary information involving Trade Secrets
(as defined below). It could prove very difficult to isolate these Trade Secrets
from business activities that you might consider pursuing after termination of
your employment, and in some instances, you may not be able to compete with
WebSideStory in certain ways because of the risk that WebSideStory's Trade
Secrets might be compromised. You are legally and ethically responsible for
protecting and preserving WebSideStory's proprietary rights for use only for
WebSideStory's benefit, and these responsibilities may impose unavoidable
limitations on your ability to pursue some kinds of business opportunities that
might interest you during or after your employment.

TRADE SECRETS DEFINED For purposes of this Agreement, a "Trade Secret" is any
information, including, but not limited to, technical or non-technical data,
formulas, patterns, compilations, programs, devices, methods, techniques,
drawings, processes, financial data, employee salaries, financial plans, product
plans, or lists of actual or potential customers or suppliers that: (1) derive
economic value, actual or potential, from not being generally known to, and not
being readily ascertainable by proper means by, other persons who can obtain
economic value from their disclosure or use; and (2) are the subject of efforts
that are reasonable under the circumstances to maintain their secrecy.

RESTRICTIONS ON USE AND DISCLOSURE OF TRADE SECRETS You agree not to use or
disclose any Trade Secrets of WebSideStory during your employment and for so
long afterwards as the pertinent information or data remain Trade Secrets,
regardless of whether the Trade Secrets are in written or tangible form, except
as required to perform any duties for WebSideStory.

SCREENING OF PUBLIC RELEASES OF INFORMATION In addition, and without any
intention of limiting your other obligations under this Agreement in any way,
you should not, during your employment, reveal any non-public information
concerning the technology pertaining to the proprietary products and
manufacturing processes of WebSideStory (particularly technology under current
development or improvement), unless you have obtained written approval from
WebSideStory in advance. In that connection, you should submit to WebSideStory
for review any proposed scientific and technical articles and the text of any
public speeches relating to work done for WebSideStory before they are released
or delivered. WebSideStory has the right to disapprove and prohibit, or delete
any parts of such articles or speeches that might disclose WebSideStory's Trade
Secrets or other confidential information or otherwise be contrary to
WebSideStory's business interests.

UPON YOUR TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT WITH WEBSIDESTORY, YOU AGREE TO TURN OVER
ALL NOTES, DATA, DISKETTES, TAPES, REFERENCE ITEMS, SKETCHES OR DRAWINGS,
MEMORANDA, RECORDS, AND THE MATERIALS IN YOUR POSSESSION OR CONTROL WHICH IN ANY
WAY RELATE TO ANY WEBSIDESTORY CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.



                                       3
<PAGE>   4

RETURN OF MATERIALS At the request of WebSideStory and, in any event, upon the
termination of your employment, you must return to WebSideStory and leave at its
disposal all memoranda, notes, records, drawings, manuals, computer programs,
documentation, diskettes, computer tapes, and other documents or media
pertaining to the business of WebSideStory or your specific duties for
WebSideStory, including all copies of such materials. You must also return to
WebSideStory and leave at its disposal all materials involving any Trade Secrets
of WebSideStory. This Section is intended to apply to all materials made or
compiled by you, as well as to all materials furnished to you by anyone else in
connection with your employment. YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO CONTINUE TO PROTECT
WEBSIDESTORY'S CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, AFTER YOU LEAVE OUR EMPLOYMENT.

UNFAIR COMPETITION Employee acknowledges and agrees that the sale or
unauthorized use or disclosure of any of WebSideStory's trade secrets obtained
by Employee during the course of his engagement, including information
concerning WebSideStory's current or any future and proposed work, series or
products, the facts that any such work services, or products are planned, under
consideration, or in production, as well as any descriptions thereof, constitute
unfair competition. Employee promises and agrees not to engage in any unfair
competition with WebSideStory, either during the term of his engagement or at
any time thereafter.

HIRING EMPLOYEES You agree, for a period ending one year after the termination
of your employment with WebSideStory, not to hire or engage, or attempt to hire
or engage, directly or indirectly, any individual who was an employee of
WebSideStory at any time during the one-year period prior to the date of your
termination of employment with WebSideStory, whether for or on behalf of you or
for any entity in which you have a direct or indirect interest, whether as a
proprietor, partner, stockholder, employee, agent, representative, or
otherwise.

IF ANY PART OF THIS AGREEMENT IS NOT LEGAL, THE OTHER LEGAL PARTS WILL REMAIN IN
FORCE.

SEVERABILITY The covenants in this Agreement will be construed as covenants
independent of one another and as obligations distinct from any other contract
between you and WebSideStory. Any claim that you may have against WebSideStory
will not constitute a defense to enforcement by WebSideStory of this Agreement.

SOME OF YOUR OBLIGATIONS WILL SURVIVE THE TERMINATION OF YOUR EMPLOYMENT WITH
WEBSIDESTORY.

SURVIVAL OF OBLIGATIONS The covenants in this Agreement concerning work product,
trade secrets, confidential information, unfair competition and hiring employees
will survive termination of your employment, regardless of who causes the
termination and under what circumstances.

WEBSIDESTORY WILL BE IRREPARABLY HARMED IF YOU BREACH WEBSIDESTORY
CONFIDENTIALITY OR TAKE TRADE SECRETS. TO PROTECT OURSELVES, WE MUST BE ABLE TO
STOP ANY EMPLOYEE IMMEDIATELY WHO MISAPPROPRIATES WEBSIDESTORY CONFIDENTIAL
INFORMATION OR TRADE SECRETS.

SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE AND CONSENT TO INJUNCTIVE RELIEF Irreparable harm will be
presumed if you breach any covenant in this Agreement. The faithful observance
of all covenants in this Agreement is an essential condition to your employment,
and WebSideStory is depending upon absolute compliance. Damages would probably
be very difficult to ascertain if you breached any covenant in this Agreement.
This Agreement is intended to protect the proprietary nights of WebSideStory in
many important ways. Even the threat of any misuse of the technology of
WebSideStory would be extremely harmful, since that technology is essential to
the business of WebSideStory. In light of these facts, you agree that any court
of competent jurisdiction should immediately


                                       4
<PAGE>   5

enjoin any breach of this Agreement upon the request of WebSideStory. Also, you
specifically release WebSideStory from the requirement of posting any bond in
connection with temporary or interlocutory injunctive relief, to the extent
permitted by law.

HOW YOU RECEIVE NOTICES RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT.

NOTICES All notices required under this Agreement will be made in writing and
will be deemed given when (1) delivered in person, (2) deposited in the U.S.
mail, first class, with proper postage prepaid and properly addressed, or (3)
sent through the interoffice delivery service of WebSideStory, if you are still
employed by WebSideStory at the time.

THIS AGREEMENT APPLIES TO ALL WEBSIDESTORY RELATED PARTIES.

RELATED PARTIES This Agreement will inure to the benefit of, and be binding
upon, WebSideStory and its subsidiaries and its affiliates, together with their
successors and assigns, and you, together with your executor, administrator,
personal representative, heirs, and legatees.

THIS AGREEMENT REFLECTS THE TERMS OF YOUR EMPLOYMENT WITH WEBSIDESTORY. THE
TERMS OF ANY PRIOR LETTERS, NEGOTIATIONS, OR UNDERSTANDINGS THAT CONTRADICT ANY
PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT ARE UNENFORCEABLE.

MERGER This Agreement merges and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous
agreements, undertakings, covenants, or conditions, whether oral or written,
express or implied, to the extent that they contradict or conflict with the
terms and conditions hereof. This Agreement is not intended to modify or impair
the effectiveness of the general rules and policies WebSideStory may announce
from time to time.

ARBITRATION The parties agree that they will submit any dispute that arises
under this Agreement to arbitration in San Diego County, California. The parties
hereby agree to use a third party neutral referred by American Arbitration
Association who will conduct the arbitration under the American Arbitration
Association rules for Arbitration. The cost of the arbitration will be shared
equally by both parties.

CHOICE OF LAW This Agreement will be governed by and enforced under the laws of
the State of California, in San Diego County.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, you, as an employee of WebSideStory, have entered and
executed this Agreement under seal, and WebSideStory has accepted your
undertaking.

Exhibit A


A1.   SALARY

      Employee will be paid an annual salary of $200,000. Employee's salary will
      be paid in equal installments at regular payroll periods (every two
      weeks). Employee's salary will be reviewed periodically by the president
      of WebSideStory and may be adjusted from time to time at his sole
      discretion.

      BONUS

      In the event that the Company meets its quarterly projections for pre-tax
      income (assuming accrual of the bonus payments contemplated by this
      subsection and adjusted for extraordinary expenses), the Company will pay
      a quarterly bonus to Agnes Barrelet in the amount of $70,000. The
      projections to be used in determining whether a bonus shall be paid
      pursuant to this subsection shall be the projections set forth in the
      Company's Business Plan Income Statement forecast for 1999 and 2000 as
      delivered to the Investors.

A2.   DUTIES

      Employee will serve as WebSideStory's Vice President of Sales. Employee's
      duties may be modified at the discretion of WebSideStory's Board of
      Directors. Employee will be under the management of WebSideStory's Board
      of Directors. Employee will diligently execute such duties and will devote
      substantially all of Employee's time, skill, and effort during ordinary
      working hours to such duties.

A3.   DEDUCTIONS

      WebSideStory will deduct from any compensation payable to Employee the

      federal and state withholding taxes, social security taxes and state
      disability insurance.

A4.   BENEFITS

      Medical coverage is a benefit that WebSideStory provides for its employees
      alone; spouses are excluded from coverage. At your own cost, however, we
      do give you the option to include your spouse in the medical and/or dental
      plan offered. Since WebSideStory is billed for the spouse premium, we will
      in turn deduct the premium from your paycheck. Employee will be entitled
      to medical coverage after a period of 30 days.

A5.   VACATION, ILLNESS, AND HOLIDAYS

      Employee will be entitled each year to vacation time at full pay in
