Looks like C, since all others have dubious meanings.

I would go with C.

A is wrong because prohibiting that is not right.
Each employee is singular. So them is wrong. So B and D is out.
E makes it sound that "water purification method" is being prohibited.

My choice is D for the idiomatic usage of Prohibit from
Agreement That would prohibit them from the disclosure .........

I think it is not D because you need a disclosing after prohibit them and not a disclosure as in D

I would go with D.
Reasons:
a) Correct Idiomatic use of Prohibit ... From......
b) Although "them" seems redundant but it can be used when we are not certain about the gender of a person.
For Example:

If anybody calls then tell them I am not at home.
Here anybody can be he/she so 'them' is not used here as plural rather to refer he/she.

Regards,
Brajesh
