AMKOR TECHNOLOGY, INC.
SECOND AMENDED AND RESTATED 2007 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN
GLOBAL PERFORMANCE-VESTED RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT
Unless otherwise defined herein, each term used in this Global Performance-Vested Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement, including the general terms and conditions for all non-U.S. Participants and the additional terms and conditions for certain countries, all as set forth in the appendix attached hereto (the “Appendix” and, together with the Global Performance-Vested Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement, the “Award Agreement”) and defined in the Amkor Technology, Inc. Second Amended and Restated 2007 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) will have the same meaning as is given to such term in the Plan. The Award (as defined herein) is subject to clawback if the Company is subsequently required to restate its financial statements resulting in the financial results being reduced such that the Award (or any portion thereof) would not have been paid, if the Company determines, in its sole discretion, that the Participant engaged in intentional misconduct or fraud that resulted in such restatement.
You have been granted the right to receive an Award of Performance-Vested Restricted Stock Units, subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan and this Award Agreement, as follows:
|Date of Grant|
|Vesting Commencement Date|
|Number of Restricted Stock Units Granted|
1.Grant. The Company hereby grants to the individual named above (“Participant”) under the Plan as a separate incentive and not in lieu of any salary or other compensation for the Participant’s services, an Award of Restricted Stock Units (the “Award”), subject to all of the terms and conditions in this Award Agreement and the Plan, which is incorporated herein by reference. In the event of a conflict between the terms and conditions of the Plan and the terms and conditions of this Award Agreement, the terms and conditions of the Plan will prevail.
2.Vesting Schedule. Except as may be otherwise provided in Section 4 or Section 5 of this Award Agreement, the vesting of the Participant’s rights and interest in the Restricted Stock Units subject to this Award Agreement shall be determined in accordance with this Section 2. The extent to which the Participant’s interest in the Restricted Stock Units becomes vested shall be based upon the satisfaction of the performance goal specified in this Section 2 (the “Performance Goal”); provided that, based on the achievement of the Performance Goal, the number of Restricted Stock Units may range from 0% to 200% of the number of Restricted Stock Units set forth above. The Performance Goal shall be based upon the cumulative EPS (as defined below) of the Company for the period beginning January 1, 2021 and ending on December 31, 2022 (the “Performance Period”). For purposes of this Agreement, “EPS” for any fiscal period shall mean the Company’s net income determined under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles divided by the weighted average number of outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock; provided, however, that EPS shall be adjusted by the Administrator to exclude earnings and related transaction costs for acquisitions completed in the final six months of the Performance Period for which the 12-month trailing revenue of the acquired company or the business of the acquired assets is greater than $400 million. In addition, the Performance Goal shall be adjusted downward by the Administrator for divestitures completed during the Performance Period in which the divested entity or assets were demonstrably budgeted to add more than $0.10 earnings per share, and in any such case the net income or loss attributable to the divested entity or assets, the transaction costs for such divestiture and the gain or loss on such divestiture will be excluded from the determination of EPS. Following the end of the Performance Period, the Administrator will certify the level of the Performance Goal for such Performance Period.
The portion of the Participant’s Restricted Stock Units, if any, that becomes vested shall be determined at the Determination Date (as defined herein) in accordance with the following schedule:
|2-Year Cumulative EPS||Percent of Goal Achieved||Payout as a Percentage of Target|
The actual number of Restricted Stock Units that become vested if the Company EPS is achieved at a level falling between the levels set forth in the preceding table shall be determined using linear interpolation. No portion of the Restricted Stock Units shall become vested if less than 70% of the applicable Performance Target is achieved, and in such event the Restricted Stock Units shall be forfeited with no payment or issuance of Shares to Participant.
Notwithstanding the foregoing schedule, no fractional Shares shall be issued, and any fractional Shares that would have resulted from the foregoing calculations shall be rounded down to the next whole number.
The applicable portion of the Restricted Stock Units shall become vested in accordance with this Section 2, subject to the Administrator determining and certifying in writing that the corresponding Performance Goal and all other conditions for the vesting of the Restricted Stock Units have been satisfied; provided the Participant’s continuous status as a Service Provider has not terminated before the Determination Date. This determination shall be made within ninety (90) days after the last day of the Performance Period (“Determination Date”). The determination shall be based on the level of Company EPS achieved, and the Administrator’s good faith determination shall be final, binding and conclusive on all persons, including, but not limited to, the Company and the Participant.
For the avoidance of doubt, unless otherwise set forth in Section 4 of this Award Agreement, employment or other service during only a portion of the vesting period until the Determination Date shall not entitle Participant to vest in a pro rata portion of the Restricted Stock Units scheduled to vest on such date.
3.Settlement. Subject to Section 7 hereof, promptly following each applicable vesting date (including any accelerated vesting date under Section 4), and in any event no later than March 15 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which such vesting occurs, the Company shall, in the Administrator’s sole discretion, either (i) pay to Participant an amount in cash equal to the Fair Market Value of the Shares represented by the RSUs that vested as of the most recent vesting date, or (ii) (a) issue and deliver to the Participant the number of Shares equal to the number of vested Restricted Stock Units and (b) enter the Participant’s name on the books of the Company as the stockholder of record with respect to the Shares delivered to the Participant.
4.Termination of Status as a Service Provider.
(a)Termination Due to Death or Disability. If the Participant’s termination as a Service Provider is due to death or Disability and such death or Disability occurs before the Determination Date, the Participant shall become vested at the time of the Determination Date in a number of Restricted Stock Units equal to the product of (i) the number of Restricted Stock Units that the Participant would have earned in accordance with Section 2 had the Participant remained as a Service Provider through the end of the Performance Period and (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days during the Performance Period that the Participant provided services as a Service Provider and the denominator of which is the total number of days in the Performance Period.
(b)Termination Due to Retirement. If the Participant’s termination as a Service Provider is due to Retirement (as defined herein), and such Retirement occurs before the Determination Date, the Participant shall become vested at the time of the Determination Date in a number of Restricted Stock Units equal to the product of
(i) the number of Restricted Stock Units that the Participant would have earned in accordance with Section 2 had the Participant remained as a Service Provider through the end of the Performance Period and (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days during the Performance Period that the Participant provided services as a Service Provider during such year and the denominator of which is the total number of days in the Performance Period. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if such Retirement occurred within six (6) months following the Date of Grant, all the Restricted Stock Units will be forfeited (with no consideration due the Participant), and Participant will have no further rights thereunder. “Retirement” for purposes of this Award Agreement shall mean the Participant’s resignation from the Company (or the Subsidiary employing or retaining Participant) on or after the date on which the sum of (i) the Participant’s age (rounded down to the nearest whole month) plus (ii) the number of years (rounded down to the nearest whole month) that the Participant has provided services as a Service Provider to the Company equals or is greater than seventy-five (75).
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Company receives a legal opinion that there has been a legal judgment and/or legal development in Participant’s jurisdiction that likely would result in the favorable treatment that applies to the Restricted Stock Units when Participant’s status as a Service Provider terminates as a result of Participant’s Retirement being deemed unlawful and/or discriminatory, the provisions of this Section 4(b) regarding the treatment of the Restricted Stock Units when Participant’s status as a Service Provider terminates as a result of Participant’s Retirement will not be applicable to Participant and the remaining provisions of this Award Agreement will govern.
(c)Change in Control. If a Change in Control occurs, the Participant either (i) remains a Service Provider through the Determination Date or (ii) the Participant’s termination as a Service Provider occurs prior to the Determination Date but is (A) by the Company (or the Subsidiary employing or retaining Participant) for any reason other than Cause or (B) by the Participant for Good Reason, the Participant shall become vested at the time of the Determination Date in a number of Restricted Stock Units equal to the higher of (i) the amount of Restricted Stock Units that the Participant would have received had the Participant achieved 100% of the Performance Goal and (ii) the actual percentage of the Performance Goal that the Participant had achieved at the time of the Change in Control. For purposes of this Award Agreement, “Good Reason” shall mean: (i) a material reduction in the Participant’s authority, duties or responsibilities; (ii) a material reduction in the Participant’s base salary or bonus opportunity (other than a general reduction in base salary that affects all similarly situated executives in substantially the same proportions); or (iii) any material breach by the Company of any material provision of this Agreement.
5.Forfeiture upon Termination of Status as a Service Provider. Notwithstanding any contrary provision of this Award Agreement, but subject to the vesting provisions set forth in this Award Agreement and Section 4 above, the balance of the Restricted Stock Units that have not vested at the time of Participant’s termination as a Service Provider for any reason will be forfeited (with no consideration due to Participant) and automatically transferred to and reacquired by the Company at no cost to the Company upon the date of such termination and Participant will have no further rights thereunder.
For purposes of the Restricted Stock Units, Participant's status as a Service Provider will be deemed terminated as of the date Participant is no longer actively providing services to the Company or one of its Subsidiaries (regardless of the reason for such termination and whether or not later found to be invalid or in breach of labor laws in the jurisdiction where Participant is providing service or the terms of Participant’s employment or other service agreement, if any) and such date will not be extended by any notice period (e.g., Participant’s period of service would not include any contractual notice period or any period of “garden leave” or similar period mandated under labor laws in the jurisdiction where the Participant is providing service or the terms of Participant's employment or other service agreement, if any). The Administrator shall have the exclusive discretion to determine when Participant is no longer actively provides services for purposes of the Restricted Stock (including whether Participant may still be considered to be providing services while on a leave of absence).
6.Death of Participant. Notwithstanding any provision of this Award Agreement to the contrary, any distribution or delivery to be made to Participant under this Award Agreement will, if Participant is then deceased,
be made to the administrator or executor of Participant’s estate, Participant’s legal heirs or, provided such designation has been permitted by the Copay and/or is valid under Applicable Laws, Participant’s designated beneficiary. Any such transferee must furnish the Company with (a) written notice of his or her status as transferee and (b) evidence satisfactory to the Company to establish the validity of the transfer and compliance with any laws or regulations pertaining to said transfer.
7.Responsibility for Taxes.
(a) Participant acknowledges and agrees that, regardless of any action taken by the Company or, if different, the Subsidiary to which Participant is providing services (the “Service Recipient”), the ultimate liability for all income tax, social insurance, payroll tax, fringe benefits tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to Participant’s participation in the Plan and legally applicable to Participant (“Tax-Related Items”) is and remains Participant’s responsibility and may exceed the amount, if any, actually withheld by the Company or the Service Recipient. Participant further acknowledges that the Company and/or the Service Recipient: (i) make no representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related Items in connection with any aspect of the Restricted Stock Units, including, but not limited to, the grant or vesting of Restricted Stock Units, or the subsequent sale of Shares acquired at vesting and the receipt of any dividends; and (ii) do not commit to and are under no obligation to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Restricted Stock Units to reduce or eliminate Participant’s liability for Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if Participant is subject to Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction, Participant acknowledges that the Company and/or the Service Recipient (or former service recipient, as applicable) may be required to withhold or account for Tax-Related Items in more than one jurisdiction.
(b) Prior to the relevant taxable or tax withholding event, as applicable, Participant agrees to make adequate arrangements satisfactory to the Company and/or the Service Recipient to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, Participant authorizes the Company and/or the Service Recipient, or their respective agents, at their discretion, to satisfy any applicable withholding obligations with regard to all Tax-Related Items by one or a combination of the following: (i) withholding from Participant’s salary, wages or other compensation payable to Participant by the Company and/or the Service Recipient; (ii) withholding from proceeds of the sale of the Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units either through a voluntary sale or through a mandatory sale arranged by the Company (on Participant’s behalf pursuant to this authorization without further consent); (iii) withholding Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units; or (iv) any method determined by the Administrator to be in compliance with Applicable Laws. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Participant is subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act at the time the withholding obligation for Tax-Related Items becomes due, the Administrator will satisfy any applicable withholding obligation by directing the Company to withhold Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units.
(c) The Company and/or the Service Recipient may withhold or account for Tax-Related Items by considering statutory withholding amounts or other applicable withholding rates, including maximum rates applicable in Participant’s jurisdiction(s). In the event of over-withholding, Participant may receive a refund of any over-withheld amount in cash (with no entitlement to the equivalent in Shares), or if not refunded, Participant may seek a refund from local tax authorities. In the event of under-withholding, Participant may be required to pay any additional Tax-Related Items directly to the applicable tax authority or to the Company and/or the Service Recipient. If the obligation for Tax-Related Items is satisfied by withholding Shares, for tax purposes, Participant is deemed to have received the full number of Shares subject to the vested Restricted Stock Units, notwithstanding that a number of the Shares is held back solely for the purpose of paying the Tax-Related Items.
(d) Participant agrees to pay to the Company or the Service Recipient any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company or the Service Recipient may be required to withhold or account for as a result of Participant’s participation in the Plan that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described. The Company may refuse to issue or deliver the Shares or the proceeds of the sale of the Shares acquired upon vesting of the Restricted Stock Units, if Participant fails to comply with his or her obligations in connection with the Tax-Related Items.
8.Rights as Stockholder. Neither Participant nor any person claiming under or through Participant will have any of the rights or privileges of a stockholder of the Company in respect of any Shares deliverable hereunder unless and until the Restricted Stock Units have vested and are settled by the issuance of Shares in accordance with Section 3, the Share issuance is recorded on the records of the Company or its transfer agents or registrars, and certificates representing such Shares have been issued (if the Shares are certificated or evidence of book entry if the Shares are not certificated) and delivered to Participant. After such vesting, settlement, issuance, recordation and delivery, Participant will have all the rights of a stockholder of the Company with respect to such Shares for which such conditions are met, including voting and receipt of dividends and distributions on such Shares. The Participant shall not be entitled to any Dividend Equivalents with respect to the Restricted Stock Units to reflect any dividends payable on Shares.
9.No Guarantee of Continued Service. PARTICIPANT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE VESTING OF THE RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS PURSUANT TO THE VESTING SCHEDULE HEREOF IS EARNED ONLY BY CONTINUING AS A SERVICE PROVIDER AND NOT THROUGH THE ACT OF BEING HIRED, BEING GRANTED THESE RESTRICTED STOCK UNITS OR ACQUIRING SHARES HEREUNDER. PARTICIPANT FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THIS AWARD AGREEMENT, THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREUNDER AND THE VESTING AND SETTLEMENT SCHEDULE SET FORTH HEREIN DO NOT CONSTITUTE AN EXPRESS OR IMPLIED PROMISE OF CONTINUED ENGAGEMENT AS A SERVICE PROVIDER FOR THE VESTING PERIOD, FOR ANY PERIOD, OR AT ALL, AND WILL NOT INTERFERE IN ANY WAY WITH PARTICIPANT’S RIGHT OR THE RIGHT OF THE COMPANY OR THE SERVICE RECIPIENT, AS APPLICABLE. TO TERMINATE PARTICIPANT’S RELATIONSHIP AS A SERVICE PROVIDER AT ANY TIME, WITH OR WITHOUT CAUSE.
10.Appendix. For Participants outside the United States, the Restricted Stock Units shall be subject to the general terms and conditions for all non-U.S. Participants and the additional terms and conditions for certain countries set forth in the Appendix attached hereto. Moreover, if Participant relocates from the U.S. to one of the countries included in the Appendix or if Participant relocates between countries included in the Appendix during the vesting period of the Restricted Stock Units, the general terms and conditions for non-U.S. Participants and the additional terms and conditions for such country shall apply to Participant, to the extent the Company determines that the application of such terms and conditions is necessary or advisable for legal or administrative reasons. The Appendix constitutes part of this Award Agreement.
11.No Advice Regarding Grant. The Company is not providing any tax, legal or financial advice, nor is the Company making any recommendations regarding participation in the Plan, or Participant’s acquisition or sale of the underlying Shares. Participant acknowledges that he or she should consult with his or her own personal tax, legal and financial advisors regarding participation in the Plan before taking any action related to the Restricted Stock.
12.Address for Notices. Any notice to be given to the Company under the terms of this Award Agreement will be addressed to the Company, in care of its General Counsel at Amkor Technology, Inc., 2045 East Innovation Circle, Tempe, AZ 85284, or at such other address as the Company may hereafter designate in writing.
13.Waivers. Participant acknowledges that a waiver by the Company of breach of any provision of this Award Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any other provision of this Award Agreement, or of any subsequent breach by Participant or any other participants.
14.Grant is Not Transferable. Except to the limited extent provided in Section 6, the unvested Restricted Stock Units subject to this grant and the rights and privileges conferred hereby will not be transferred, assigned, pledged or hypothecated in any way (whether by operation of law or otherwise) and will not be subject to sale under execution, attachment or similar process. Upon any attempt to transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of any unvested Restricted Stock Units subject to this grant, or any right or privilege conferred hereby, or upon any attempted sale under any execution, attachment or similar process, this grant and the rights and privileges conferred hereby immediately will become null and void.
15.Binding Agreement. Subject to the limitation on the transferability of this grant contained herein, this Award Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the heirs, legatees, legal representatives, successors and assigns of the parties hereto (provided that neither the Restricted Stock Units nor this Award Agreement may be assigned by Participant).
16.Additional Conditions. The Company will not be required to issue any certificate or certificates (or evidence of book entry) for Shares hereunder prior to fulfillment of all the following conditions: (a) the admission of such Shares to listing on all stock exchanges on which such class of stock is then listed; (b) the completion of any registration or other qualification of such Shares under any Applicable Laws or under the rulings or regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or any other U.S. or non-U.S. governmental regulatory body, which the Administrator, in its absolute discretion, deems necessary or advisable; (c) the obtaining of any approval or other clearance from any U.S. or non-U.S. governmental agency, which the Administrator, in its absolute discretion, determines to be necessary or advisable; and (d) the lapse of such reasonable period of time following the date of grant of the Restricted Stock Units as the Administrator may establish from time to time for reasons of administrative convenience. Participant understands that the Company is under no obligation to register or qualify the Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units with any U.S. state or non-U.S. securities commission or to seek approval or clearance from any governmental authority for the issuance or sale of the Shares. Further, Participant agrees that the Company shall have unilateral authority to amend the Plan and this Award Agreement without Participant’s consent to the extent necessary to comply with Applicable Laws.
17.Administrator Authority. The Administrator has the power to interpret the Plan and this Award Agreement and to adopt such rules for the administration, interpretation and application of the Plan and this Award Agreement as are consistent therewith and to interpret or revoke any such rules (including, but not limited to, the determination of whether or not any Restricted Stock Units have vested). All actions taken and all interpretations and determinations made by the Administrator in good faith will be final and binding upon Participant, the Company and all other interested persons. No member of the Administrator will be personally liable for any action, determination or interpretation made in good faith with respect to the Plan or this Award Agreement.
18.Electronic Delivery and Acceptance. The Company may, in its sole discretion, decide to deliver any documents related to the Restricted Stock Units or the Plan by electronic means or request Participant’s consent to participate in the Plan by electronic means. Participant hereby consents to receive such documents by electronic delivery and agrees to participate in the Plan through any on-line or electronic system established and maintained by the Company or a third party designated by the Company.

21.Modifications to the Award Agreement. The Plan and this Award Agreement constitute the entire understanding of the parties on the subjects covered herein. Participant expressly warrants that he or she is not accepting this Award Agreement in reliance on any promises, representations, or inducements other than those contained herein. Except as otherwise provided herein or in the Plan, modifications to this Award Agreement can be made only in an express written contract executed by Participant and a duly authorized officer of the Company.
22.Code Section 409A. The Award Agreement is intended to comply with, or be exempt from, Code Section 409A and all regulations, guidance, compliance programs and other interpretative authority thereunder, and shall be interpreted in a manner consistent therewith. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, in the event the Award Agreement is subject to Code Section 409A, the Company may, in its sole discretion and without Participant’s prior consent, amend the Plan and/or the Award Agreement, adopt policies and procedures, or take any

23.Effect of Plan. By accepting the Restricted Stock Units, Participant expressly warrants that he or she has received an Award of Restricted Stock Units under the Plan, and has received, read and understands the Plan.

Participant further acknowledges that, depending on Participant’s or his or her broker’s country or the country in which the Shares are listed, he or she may be subject to insider trading restrictions and/or market abuse laws which may affect Participant’s ability to accept, acquire, sell or otherwise dispose of Shares, rights to Shares, or rights linked to the value of Shares during such times as Participant is considered to have “inside information” regarding the Company (as defined by the laws in the applicable jurisdictions). Local insider trading laws and regulations may prohibit the cancellation or amendment of orders Participant placed before Participant possessed inside information. Furthermore, Participant could be prohibited from (i) disclosing the inside information to any third party, which may include fellow employees and (ii) “tipping” third parties or causing them otherwise to buy or sell securities. Any restrictions under these laws or regulations are separate from and in addition to any restrictions that may be imposed under the Company’s insider trading policy as may be in effect from time to time. Participant acknowledges that it is Participant’s responsibility to comply with any applicable restrictions, and Participant should speak to his or her personal advisor on this matter.

SECOND AMENDED AND RESTATED 2007 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN
GLOBAL PERFORMANCE-VESTED RESTRICTED STOCK UNIT AWARD AGREEMENT
Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Appendix shall have the same meanings assigned to them in the Plan and/or the Global Performance-Vested Restricted Stock Unit Award Agreement.
Terms and Conditions
This Appendix includes general terms and conditions for all non-U.S. Participants and additional terms and conditions that govern the Restricted Stock Units if Participant works and/or resides in one of the countries listed below. If Participant is a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which Participant is currently working and/or residing (or is considered as such for local law purposes), or if Participant transfers employment and/or residency to a different country after the Restricted Stock Units are granted, the Company will, in its discretion, determine the extent to which the terms and conditions contained herein will apply to Participant.
This Appendix also includes information regarding certain other issues of which Participant should be aware with respect to Participant’s participation in the Plan. The information is based on the securities, exchange control and other laws in effect in the respective countries as of January 2021. Such laws are often complex and change frequently. As a result, Participant should not rely on the information noted herein as the only source of information relating to the consequences of participation in the Plan because the information may be out-of-date at the time the Restricted Stock Units vest or Participant sells any Shares acquired under the Plan.
In addition, the information contained herein is general in nature and may not apply to Participant’s particular situation. As a result, the Company is not in a position to assure Participant of any particular result. Accordingly, Participant should seek appropriate professional advice as to how the relevant laws in Participant’s country may apply to Participant’s individual situation.
If Participant is a citizen or resident of a country other than the one in which Participant is currently working and/or residing (or is considered as such for local law purposes), or if Participant transfers employment and/or residency to a different country after the Restricted Stock Units are granted, the information contained in this Appendix may not be applicable to Participant in the same manner.
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO ALL NON-U.S. PARTICIPANTS
1.Data Privacy Information and Consent.
(a)Data Collection and Usage. The Company and the Service Recipient collect, process and use certain personal information about Participant, including, but not limited to, Participant’s name, home address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, social insurance number, passport or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any shares or directorships held in the Company, details of all awards granted under the Plan or any other entitlement to shares awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in Participant’s favor (“Data”), for purposes of implementing, administering and managing the Plan. The legal basis, where required, for the processing of Data is Participant’s consent.
(b)Stock Plan Administration Service Providers. The Company transfers Data to E*TRADE Financial Corporate Services, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (“E*TRADE”), an independent service provider which is assisting the Company with the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. The Company may select a different service provider or additional service providers and share Data with such other provider serving in a similar manner. Participant may be asked to agree on separate terms and data processing practices with E*TRADE and such other service providers, with such agreement being a condition to the ability to participate in the Plan.
(c)International Data Transfers. The Company and E*TRADE are based in the U.S., which means that it will be necessary for Data to be transferred to, and processed in, the U.S. Participant’s country or jurisdiction may have different data privacy laws and protections than the U.S. The Company’s legal basis for the transfer of Data, where required, is Participant’s consent.
(d)Data Retention. The Company will hold and use Data only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage Participant’s participation in the Plan, or as required to comply with legal or regulatory obligations, including under tax, exchange control, labor and securities laws. This period may extend beyond the Participant's period as a Service Provider. When the Company and/or the Service Recipient no longer need Data for any of the above purposes, they will cease processing it in this context and remove it from all of their systems used for such purposes to the fullest extent practicable.
(e)Voluntariness and Consequences of Consent Denial or Withdrawal. Participation in the Plan is voluntary and Participant is providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If Participant does not consent, or if Participant later seeks to revoke his or her consent, Participant’s salary from or employment or service with the Service Recipient will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing consent is that the Company would not be able to grant the Restricted Stock Units or other equity awards to Participant under the Plan or administer or maintain such awards.
(f)Data Subject Rights. Participant may have a number of rights under data privacy laws in his or her jurisdiction. Depending on where Participant is based, such rights may include the right to (i) request access to or copies of Data the Company processes, (ii) rectify incorrect Data, (iii) delete Data, (iv) restrict the processing of Data, (v) restrict the portability of Data, (vi) lodge complaints with competent authorities in Participant’s jurisdiction, and/or (vii) receive a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of Data. To receive clarification regarding these rights or to exercise these rights, Participant can contact his or her local human resources representative.
(g)Other Legal Basis and Additional Consent. Participant understands that the Company may rely on a different legal basis for the collection, processing or transfer of Data in the future and/or request Participant to provide another data privacy consent. If applicable, upon request of the Company or the Service Recipient, Participant will provide a separate executed data privacy agreement (or any other agreements or consents) that the Company and/or the Service Recipient may deem necessary to obtain from Participant for the purpose of
administering his or her participation in the Plan in compliance with the data privacy laws in Participant’s country, either now or in the future. Participant understands and agrees that Participant will not be able to participate in the Plan if Participant fails to provide any such agreement requested by the Company and/or the Service Recipient.
2.Nature of Grant. By accepting the Restricted Stock Units, Participant acknowledges, understands, and agrees that:
(a)the grant of the Restricted Stock Units is exceptional, voluntary and occasional and does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants of restricted stock units, or benefits in lieu of restricted stock units, even if restricted stock units have been granted in the past;
(b)all decisions with respect to future restricted stock unit or other grants, if any, will be at the sole discretion of the Company;
(c)Participant is voluntarily participating in the Plan;
(d)the Restricted Stock Units and any Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units, and the income from and value of same, are not intended to replace any pension rights or compensation;
(e)unless otherwise agreed with the Company, the Restricted Stock Units and the Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units, and the income from and value of same, are not granted as consideration for, or in connection with, the service Participant may provide as a director of a Subsidiary;
(f)the Restricted Stock Units and any Shares subject to the Restricted Stock Units, and the income from and value of same, are not part of normal or expected compensation for any purpose, including, without limitation to, calculating any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy, dismissal, end-of-service payments, bonuses, long-service awards, holiday pay, pension or retirement or welfare benefits or similar mandatory payments;
(g)the future value of the Shares underlying the Restricted Stock Units is unknown, indeterminable, and cannot be predicted with certainty;
