with the Company, he/she will not accept nor will he/she engage in employment, consulting or
other business activity directly related to and in competition with the business of the

reason, Resource agrees not to engage directly or indirectly in any business substantially
similar to or in competition with the business of the Company, it successors or assigns for a

competition with the business of the Company shall mean: (i) engaging in a business as an
owner, partner or agent; (ii) taking employment with a third party engaged in such business
either as an employee, contractor or consultant; or (iii) soliciting customers for the benefit of a
third party engaged in such business.

3. NON-SOLICITATION OF RESOURCES AND CLIENTS: Resource agrees that for a period
of 18 months following the termination of his/her engagement with the Company, Resource
will not induce, recruit or solicit any of the Company’s resources or clients to terminate their

into another engagement or arrangement with a Resource or Client through a third party is

addition to and not in limitation of any monetary relief or other remedies or rights to which
Resource is or may be entitled by law. Resource shall be entitled to an accounting, and to the
repayment of all profits, compensation, commissions, fees, or other remuneration which

on behalf of another and/or may realize, as a result of, growing out of, or in connection with
the violation which is the subject of the suit. In addition to the foregoing, the Company shall
be entitled to collect from Resource any reasonable attorney’s fees and costs incurred in
bringing any action against the Resource or otherwise to enforce the terms of this Agreement,
as well as any attorney’s fees and costs for the collection of any judgments in the Company’s
favor arising out of this Agreement.

upon this Agreement, grant Resource access to the Company’s confidential and proprietary

use for personal gain any such confidential or proprietary information at any time during or
after the termination of the engagement, unless the Company grants express, written consent
of such a disclosure.

reason, Sections 1, 2, 3 and 4 of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect following
such termination.

7. BINDING EFFECT: The covenants and conditions contained in the Agreement shall apply
to and bind the Parties and the heirs, legal representatives, successors and permitted assigns
of the Parties.

8. WAIVER: The failure of either party to enforce any provisions of this Agreement shall not
be deemed a waiver or limitation of that party's right to subsequently enforce and compel
strict compliance with every provision of this Agreement.

9. SEVERABILITY: If any part or parts of this Agreement shall be held unenforceable for any
reason, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. If any provision
of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction,
and if limiting such provision would make the provision valid, then such provision shall be
deemed to be construed as so limited.

Parties and supersedes any prior understanding or representation of any kind preceding the
