6.Intellectual Property.
(a)If Employee has created, invented, designed, developed, contributed to or improved any works of authorship, inventions, intellectual property, materials, documents or other work product (including, without limitation, research, reports, software, databases, systems, applications, presentations, textual works, content or audiovisual materials) (“Works”), either alone or with third parties, prior to execution of this Agreement, that are relevant to or implicated by this employment (“Prior Works”), Employee hereby grants the Company a perpetual, non exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, assignable, sub-licensable license under all rights and intellectual property rights (including rights under patent, industrial property, copyright, trademark, trade secret, unfair competition and related laws) therein for all purposes in connection with the Company’s current and future business.  Employee shall provide the Company with a list of all Prior Works within 15 days of the Effective Date.
(b)If Employee creates, invents, designs, develops, contributes to or improves any Works, either alone or with third parties, at any time during Employee’s employment by the Company and within the scope of such employment and/or with the use of any Company resources (“Company Works”), Employee shall promptly and fully disclose the same to the Company and hereby irrevocably assigns, transfers and conveys, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, all rights and intellectual property rights therein (including rights under patent, industrial property, copyright, trademark, trade secret, unfair competition and related laws) to the Company to the extent ownership of any such rights does not vest originally in the Company.


(c)Employee agrees to keep and maintain adequate and current written records (in the form of notes, sketches, drawings and any other form or media requested by the Company) of all Company Works.  The records will be available to and remain the sole property and intellectual property of the Company at all times.
(d)Employee shall take all requested actions and execute all requested documents (including any licenses or assignments required by a government contract) at the Company’s expense (but without further remuneration) to assist the Company in validating, maintaining, protecting, enforcing, perfecting, recording, patenting or registering any of the Company’s rights in the Prior Works and Company Works.  If the Company is unable for any other reason to secure Employee’s signature on any document for this purpose, then Employee hereby irrevocably designates and appoints the Company and its duly authorized officers and agents as Employee’s agent and attorney in fact, to act for and in Employee’s behalf and stead to execute any documents and to do all other lawfully permitted acts in connection with the foregoing.
(e)Employee shall not improperly use for the benefit of, bring to any premises of, divulge, disclose, communicate, reveal, transfer or provide access to, or share with the Company any confidential, proprietary or non-public information or intellectual property relating to a former employer or other third party without prior written permission of such third party.  Employee shall comply with all relevant policies and guidelines of the Company regarding the protection of confidential information and intellectual property and potential conflicts of interest.  Employee acknowledges that the Company may amend any such policies and guidelines from time to time, and that Employee remains at all times bound by their most current version that has been communicated to Employee.
(f)In accordance with Sections 2870 and 2872 of the California Labor Code, this Section 6 does not require Employee to assign or offer to assign to the Company any Works that Employee developed entirely on his or her own time without using the Company’s equipment, supplies, facilities or trade secret information, except for those inventions that either (i) relate at the time of conception or reduction to practice of the invention to the Company’s business, or actual or demonstrably anticipated research or development of the Company, or (ii) result from any work performed by Employee for the Company.  To the extent a provision in this Agreement purports to require Employee to assign any Works otherwise excluded from being required to be assigned pursuant to this Section 6(f), the provision is against the public policy of the State of California and is unenforceable.  Employee bears the burden of proving that any Works created by Employee should be excluded pursuant to this Section 6(f).
7.Enforcement.  If, at the time of enforcement of Section 5 or Section 6, a court holds that the restrictions stated herein are unreasonable under circumstances then existing, the parties hereto agree that the maximum period or scope reasonable under such circumstances shall be substituted for the stated period or scope.  It is specifically understood and agreed that any breach of the provisions of Section 5 or Section 6 are likely to result in irreparable injury to the Company and the parties hereto agree that money damages would be an inadequate remedy for any such breach.  Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of Section 5 or Section 6, the Company or its successors or assigns shall, in addition to other rights and remedies existing in their favor, be entitled to specific performance and/or injunctive or other relief in order to enforce, or prevent any violations of, Section 5 or Section 6.

9.Successors and Assigns.  This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by Employee and the Company and their respective heirs, successors and permitted assigns.  Neither party may assign any of its rights or assign or delegate any of its obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of the other party hereto; provided, however, that the Company shall be permitted to assign this Agreement to any successor to all or substantially all of its assets that agrees in writing to assume all of the Company’s obligations hereunder.

12.Complete Agreement.  This Agreement embodies the complete agreement and understanding between the parties with respect to Employee’s employment with the Company and supersedes and preempts any prior understandings, agreements or representations by or among the parties, written or oral, which may have related to Employee’s employment with the Company in any way, excluding any Prior Agreement as defined above.
13.Signatures; Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.  For purposes hereof, a facsimile signature, portable document format (.pdf) signature or signature sent by electronic transmission will be considered an original signature.
14.Governing Law.  All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the internal laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of


law or conflict of law rules or provisions (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction).

15.Survival.  The provisions of Section 5, Section 6, Section 7, Section 8, Section 9, Section 10, Section 11, Section 12, Section 14, this Section 15, Section 17, Section 18, Section 20, Section 21, and Section 22 shall survive the termination of Employee’s employment and the termination of this Agreement for any reason.
16.Tax Withholdings.  The Company shall deduct or withhold from any amounts owing from the Company to Employee any federal, state, local or foreign withholding taxes, excise tax, or employment taxes imposed with respect to Employee’s compensation or other payments from the Company or Employee’s ownership interest in the Company, if any (including, without limitation, wages, bonuses, dividends, the receipt or exercise of equity options and/or the receipt or vesting of restricted equity).
17.Headings; No Strict Construction.  The headings of the paragraphs and sections of this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not be deemed a part of or affect the construction or interpretation of any provision hereof.  The language used in this Agreement shall be deemed to be the language chosen by the parties hereto to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction shall be applied against any party.
18.Employee’s Cooperation.  During the Employment Period and thereafter, Employee shall, subject to the Company reimbursing Employee for out-of-pocket expenses, cooperate with the Company in any internal investigation or administrative, regulatory or judicial proceeding as reasonably requested by the Company (including, without limitation, Employee being available to the Company upon reasonable notice for interviews and factual investigations, appearing at the Company’s request to give testimony without requiring service of a subpoena or other legal process, volunteering to the Company all pertinent information and turning over to the Company all relevant documents which are or may come into Employee’s possession, all at times and on schedules that are reasonably consistent with Employee’s other permitted activities and commitments).
19.Corporate Opportunity.  During the Employment Period, Employee shall submit to the Board all business, commercial and investment opportunities or offers presented to Employee or of which Employee becomes aware which relate to the business of the Company at any time during the Employment Period (“Corporate Opportunities”).  Unless approved by the Board, Employee shall not accept or pursue, directly or indirectly, any Corporate Opportunities on Employee’s own behalf.

Section 409A. In no event whatsoever shall the Company be liable for any additional tax, interest or penalty that may be imposed on Employee by Code Section 409A or damages for failing to comply with Code Section 409A.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, a termination of employment shall be deemed to have occurred at the time such termination constitutes a “separation from service” within the meaning of Code Section 409A for purposes of any provision of this Agreement providing for the payment of any amounts or benefits in connection with a termination of employment and, for purposes of any such provision of this Agreement, references to a “termination,” “termination of employment” or like terms shall mean a “separation from service.”  Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, in no event shall any payment under this Agreement that constitutes “deferred compensation” for purposes of Code Section 409A be subject to offset by any other amount unless otherwise permitted by Code Section 409A.

21.Amendment and Waiver.  The provisions of this Agreement may be amended or waived only with the prior written consent of the Company and Employee, and no course of conduct or failure or delay in enforcing the provisions of this Agreement shall affect the validity, binding effect or enforceability of this Agreement.

a.Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disability Act of 1990, as amended, the California Family Rights Act (Cal. Govt. Code § 12945.2 et seq.), the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (Cal. Govt. Code § 12900 et. seq.);
b.California Labor Code, including for penalties under Labor Code § 2699, et. seq., and the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1971, as amended;
c.Any statutory provision regarding retaliation/discrimination including retaliation prohibited by Labor Code §§ 1102.5, 232.5, and 132(a), the Occupational Safety and Health Act, as amended, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002;
d.Contract, tort, and property rights, breach of contract, breach of implied-in-fact contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, tortious interference with contract or current or prospective economic advantage, fraud, deceit, invasion of privacy, unfair competition, misrepresentation, defamation, wrongful termination, tortious infliction of emotional distress (whether intentional or negligent), breach of fiduciary duty, violation of public policy, or any other common law claim of any kind whatsoever; any claim for damages or declaratory or injunctive relief of any kind;
e.The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act and California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act;
f.Any common law claims whatsoever, claims for equity, stock options or any other benefits; and
g.Any amounts allegedly due as wages, benefits, penalties or damages as a result of the employment relationship.

Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to prohibit Employee from filing a charge or complaint, including a challenge to the validity of the waiver provision of this Agreement, with a government agency, including the National Labor Relations Board or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  However, Employee agrees he or she is waiving the right to monetary damages or other equitable or monetary relief as a result of such proceedings.  Nothing in this agreement prohibits Employee from seeking a whistleblower award pursuant to Section 21F of the Securities Exchange Act.

9.No Worker’s Compensation Pending.  Employee expressly represents and warrants that Employee has not suffered any workplace injury during Employee’s performance of services for the Company, and has not filed, and has no intention of filing and/or pursuing any claim for workers’ compensation benefits against the Company.  The Company expressly relies on Employee’s representation as a material inducement to enter into this Agreement.


10.Civil Code Section 1542.  In furtherance of this settlement, Employee expressly waives any rights Employee may have under California Civil Code Section 1542, or other state’s similar statutes.  Section 1542 provides:


11.ADEA Release.  Employee specifically agrees and acknowledges:
a.That Employee’s waiver of rights under this Agreement includes a release of all claims relating to Employee’s age and is knowing and voluntary as required under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, 29 U.S.C. § 621 et seq. ("ADEA") and the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act ("OWPA");
b.That Employee understands the terms of this Agreement;
c.That Employee has been advised to consult with an attorney prior to executing this Agreement;
d.That Employee’s waiver under this Agreement is in exchange for consideration which Employee is not otherwise entitled to;
e.That the Company has given Employee a period of up to twenty-one (21) days within which to consider this Agreement;
f.That, following Employee’s execution of this Agreement, Employee has seven (7) days in which to revoke Employee’s agreement to this Agreement by notifying the Company in writing and that, if Employee chooses not to so revoke, the Agreement shall then become effective and enforceable and the payment listed above shall then be made to Employee in accordance with the terms of this Agreement;
g.This Agreement does not release ADEA and OWPA claims occurring after the date of signing.
12.No Filings and Covenant Not to Sue.  A “covenant not to sue” is a legal term that means a person promises not to file a lawsuit or other legal proceeding.  It is different from the release of claims contained above.  Besides waiving and releasing the claims above, Employee promises never to file or prosecute any legal claim of any kind against any of the Company Releasees identified in Paragraph 8 in any forum for any reason based on any act, omission, event, occurrence, or nonoccurrence, from the beginning of time to the Effective Date, including but not limited to claims, laws or theories covered by the General Release.  Excluded from this covenant not to sue (which means that Employee still may file certain charges) is the right to file charges with, or assist/participate in an investigation conducted by, any agency that expressly prohibits


waiver of such rights, such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  Employee understands and agrees that Employee is waiving, however, any right to monetary recovery, including but not limited to compensatory or punitive damages, attorneys’ fees or costs, or other damages or recovery should such an agency, or any other person, entity or group, pursue any claim on Employee’s behalf.  Employee represents that, as of the date Employee executes this Agreement, Employee has not filed or caused to be filed any claims against any of the Company Releasees.  Nothing in this agreement prohibits Employee from seeking a whistleblower award pursuant to Section 21F of the Securities Exchange Act.
13.Confidentiality.  Employee agrees that Employee will not disclose the terms of this Agreement to any individual or entity, except to Employee’s spouse, attorney, tax consultant, accountant, state and federal tax authorities, or as required by law. Employee also agrees to abide by the continuing obligations in any confidentiality, nondisclosure, or arbitration agreements executed during his or her employment, and specifically agrees to hold in the strictest confidence, and not to use or to disclose, to any person, firm or corporation, any non-public information that relates to the actual or anticipated business, research or development of the Company, or to the Company’s technical data, trade secrets or know-how, including, but not limited to, research, product plans or other information regarding the Company’s products or services and markets therefor, customer lists and customers, suppliers and vendors, software, developments, inventions, processes, formulas, technology, prototypes, designs, sketches, drawings, engineering, hardware configuration information, marketing plans, finances, pilot projects, and other business information (“Company Confidential Information”).  Company Confidential Information does not include any of the foregoing items to the extent the same have become publicly known and made generally available through no wrongful act of Employee or others. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, nothing in this agreement prevents Employee from discussing or disclosing information about unlawful acts in the workplace, such as harassment or discrimination or any other conduct that you have reason to believe is unlawful.
14.Cooperation.  Employee agrees to reasonably cooperate with the Company’s reasonable requests for information after the Separation Date (including in connection with any pending litigation, arbitration, or other legal dispute which may relate to Employee’s job duties or tasks during his employment).  The Company will only make such requests when it deems necessary, and when the information sought is not otherwise available within the Company.
15.No Attorneys’ Fees and Costs. The Parties agree that they shall bear their own respective costs and fees, including attorneys’ fees, in the negotiation and execution of this Agreement.  
16.Full and Independent Knowledge.  The Parties represent that they have thoroughly discussed all aspects of this Agreement with their respective attorneys (or have been provided the right to do so), fully understand all of the provisions of the Agreement, and are voluntarily and knowingly entering into this Agreement.
17.Ownership of Actions.  Employee has not transferred or assigned, or purported to transfer or assign, to any person or entity, any action described in this Agreement.  Employee further agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each and all of the Company Releasees against any and all actions based upon, arising out of, or in any way connected with any such actual or purported transfer or assignment.


18.Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted under the laws of the State of California applicable to contracts made and to be performed entirely within California.
19.Severability.  Should any provision in this Agreement be determined to be invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall not be affected thereby, and the invalid provision shall be deemed not to be part of this Agreement, and all remaining provisions shall remain valid and enforceable.
20.Entire Agreement.  This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between the Parties and supersedes any prior agreements between the Parties pertaining to the subject matter of this Agreement.
21.No Representations.  The Parties acknowledge that, except as expressly set forth herein, no representations of any kind or character have been made by any other Party or that Party’s agents, representatives, or attorneys to induce the execution of this Agreement.  It is further understood and agreed that Employee has not relied upon any advice whatsoever from the Company or its counsel.
22.No Modification or Waiver.  No modification or waiver of the terms of this Agreement shall be effective unless it appears in a writing signed by all Parties to this Agreement.  
23.Interpretation of Agreement.  The language of all parts in this Agreement shall be construed as a whole, according to fair meaning, and not strictly for or against any party.  The headings provided in underline are inserted for the convenience of the Parties and shall not be construed to limit or modify the text of this Agreement.
24.Successors.  This Agreement shall be binding upon the Parties, and their heirs, representatives, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of each and all of the Company Releasees, and to their heirs, representatives, executors, administrators, successors, and assignees.
25.Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.  Furthermore, signatures delivered via facsimile transmission or portable document format (PDF) shall have the same force effect as the originals thereof, except that any Party has the right to insist on receipt of the original signature of the other Party before complying with its own obligations under this Agreement.


26.Notification.  Notice to be given under this Agreement shall be sent to the Company care of [INSERT] and to Employee at the addresses listed on the signature page hereto.
