Either party may terminate this License by at least five (5) days’ prior written notice to the other, without cause, in which case the date set forth in such notice shall be the Term Expiration Date.

3.Licensed Premises. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that it is currently in possession of the Licensed Premises, that it has inspected the Licensed Premises and

accepts the same on an “AS IS, WHERE IS” basis, it being expressly agreed that Licensor shall have no obligation, liability or risk whatsoever with respect to the Building, the Licensed Premises or their condition. Licensee further acknowledges and agrees that neither Licensor nor any agent or employee of Licensor has made any representations or warranties, express or implied, concerning the Building, the Licensed Premises or their condition. Licensee shall make no alterations or improvements to the Licensed Premises without Licensor's prior written consent, which consent may be granted or withheld in Licensor’s sole discretion. Licensor and its agents or designees reserve the right to enter and examine and show the Licensed Premises, and to perform work therein, at any time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice to Licensee.

4.License Fee/Additional Charges/Utilities.

(a)License Fee. Licensee shall not be obligated to pay a license fee in connection with the use of the Licensed Premises.

(b)Additional Charges. Licensee shall pay to Licensor for any special or non-customary services performed at Licensee’s request, or additional costs incurred in the Licensed Premises or on account of Licensee, for which Licensor is normally compensated a separate reimbursement, at reasonable rates established by Licensor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee shall not be charged for HVAC or electricity costs on account of the Licensed Premises during the Term.

5.Licensor's Services. Licensor shall provide Licensee with reasonable access to the Licensed Premises and shall otherwise have no other obligation to provide Licensee with any services, utilities, facilities or supplies for the Licensed Premises except the utilities and systems serving the Licensed Premises as of the commencement date of this License. If Licensor is prevented or delayed from providing any such service, or perform any other obligation under this License, by reason of any cause, then Licensor shall not be liable to Licensee therefor, and Licensee shall not be entitled to any reduction or abatement of amounts due hereunder.

6.Signage. No sign, advertisement or notice (“Signage”) shall be exhibited, painted or affixed by Licensee on any part of the exterior façade or windows of the Licensed Premises or any part of the interior of the Licensed Premises, if visible from the exterior of the Licensed Premises, without Licensor’s prior written consent, which consent may be withheld in Licensor’s sole discretion. Licensor reserves the right to require that Licensee remove, relocate or shield any Signage that is exhibited, painted or affixed by Licensee on the interior portions of the Licensed Premises or that is visible from the exterior of the Licensed Premises.

7.Licensee's Personnel and Building/Insurance.

(a)Licensee, its personnel and visitors, and their property, from time to time in the Licensed Premises or elsewhere in the Building (or in transit thereto or therefrom) shall be at Licensee's risk, and to the maximum extent permitted by law Licensor shall not be liable for any damage or injury to such parties or their property. If any claim is brought against Licensor (or any affiliate of Licensor) by Licensee, or any of its personnel or visitors, on account of any injury, loss, theft or damage to any person or property while on or in the Licensed Premises, or in connection with any condition within the Licensed Premises, then Licensee shall indemnify, defend, hold harmless and reimburse Licensor (and its affiliates) for any loss, cost, damage or expense (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising from such claim except to the extent that such claim results from Licensor's negligence or willful misconduct, which obligations of Licensee shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this License.

(b)Until this License is revoked or terminated, Licensee shall maintain commercial general liability insurance coverage insuring Licensor (and Licensor’s designated affiliates, managing agent and mortgagee), against all claims, demands or actions for injury, death and property damage in the minimum amount of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 in the aggregate. Any insurance carried by either party with respect to the Licensed Premises or property therein or occurrences thereon shall include a clause or endorsement denying to the insurer rights of subrogation against the other party to the extent rights have been waived by the insured hereunder prior to the occurrence of injury or loss. Each party, notwithstanding any provisions of this License to the contrary, hereby waives any rights of recovery against the other for injury or loss due to hazards covered by such insurance to the extent of indemnification received hereunder. Evidence that Licensee has obtained such insurance shall be provided to Licensor prior to occupying the Licensed Premises and thereafter upon Licensor’s request.

8.Revocation and Termination. This License is at the pleasure and discretion of Licensor and, in addition to the termination rights provided elsewhere in this License, is revocable at any time upon five (5) days prior written notice from Licensor to Licensee in the event that Licensee is in breach of any of the covenants herein. Licensee waives any statutory notices and other legal process relating to tenancies and acknowledges that Licensee is not a tenant and has no property or possessory rights in or to the Licensed Premises, but only a revocable license to enter onto the Licensed Premises for temporary use. Licensee shall vacate the Licensed Premises to Licensor on the date of revocation or termination of this License in as good condition as on the Term Commencement Date or in such better condition as the Licensed Premises may be put hereafter (reasonable wear and tear excepted). Upon revocation or termination of this License, Licensee shall have no further rights in or access to the Licensed Premises and Licensor shall continue to have possession of the Licensed Premises with the right to lease or license the same to any party. If Licensee fails to vacate the Licensed Premises upon revocation or termination of this License, at Licensor’s election, Licensee shall pay to Licensor a holdover license fee equal to 200% of the market license fee for the Licensed Premises (as determined by Licensor) for any month or partial month during which such holdover continues. Upon

revocation or termination of this License, Licensee shall remove all of Licensee’s goods, effects and property that Licensee is directed to remove, and if Licensee fails to remove such items, then Licensor may have them removed and stored in a public warehouse, all at the expense and risk of Licensee. If such items are not removed from storage within thirty
(30) days, such items may be sold by any customary methods in order to pay storage costs and other expenses of Licensee. Licensee acknowledges that time is of the essence in vacating the Licensed Premises at the expiration of the Term.

9.Compliance with Legal Requirements. Licensee shall not cause or permit the Licensed Premises or the Building to be used in any way that violates any law, code, ordinance, restrictive covenant, encumbrance, governmental regulation, order, permit, or approval (each a “Legal Requirement”), annoys or interferes with the rights of tenants of the Building, or constitutes a nuisance or waste. Licensee shall obtain and pay for all permits, including any requisite certificates of occupancy, and shall promptly take all actions necessary to comply with all Legal Requirements regulating Licensee's use of the Licensed Premises or the Building. Licensee shall maintain in full force and effect all certifications or permissions to provide its services required by any authority having jurisdiction to authorize, franchise or regulate such services.

10.Successors and Assigns; Licensor's Liability. Licensee's rights under this License are for the benefit only of the Licensee named herein. Licensee shall not assign, sublicense, or transfer any of its rights under this License, and shall not permit any other party to use or occupy the Licensed Premises. Licensor may transfer its rights and obligations under this License to a successor owner of the Building. Licensee agrees to look only to Licensor's interest in the Building for satisfaction of any claim against Licensor, or its successors, and not to any other property or assets of Licensor, or its successors. If the Building is transferred, then from and after such transfer Licensee shall look solely to the interests in the Building of each transferee for the performance of Licensor's obligations under this License. If the Building is transferred to an institutional lender providing financing for the Building, then Licensee agrees such lender shall have no liability under this License for any breaches occurring prior to the date it acquires title to and possession of the Building. The obligations of Licensor shall not be binding on any partners (or trustees or beneficiaries) of Licensor or of any successor, individually, but only upon Licensor's or such successor's interest described above. In no event shall Licensor, or its successors, be liable for any indirect or consequential damages.

11.Brokers. Licensee warrants that it has had no dealings with any broker or agent in connection with this License or any other space in the Building. Licensee covenants to pay, hold harmless and indemnify Licensor from and against any and all costs, expense or liability for any compensation, commissions and charges claimed by any broker or agent with respect to this License or the negotiation thereof arising from a breach of the foregoing warranty.

12.Miscellaneous.
