Employees contribution to the pension savings component shall be equal to 6%, which shall be deducted from the Salary.
For the avoidance of the doubt, in the event that Employee has chosen a Managers Insurance Fund (for all or for only a part of the Policy), then at least 5% of the Salary (or in the case in which only a part of the Salary is apportioned towards a Managers Insurance Fund, then such part of the Salary) shall be calculated towards the pension savings component.

If the cost of the Disability Insurance (i.e., ensuring that 75% of the Salary shall be paid to Employee upon Employee becoming 100% disabled) shall be lower than 1.5% of the Salary, the remainder shall nevertheless still be contributed to the pension savings component for the benefit of Employee.

Furthermore, Employee shall notify Company whether he wishes to engage with a pension agent of his own (the Pension Agent). The Pension Agent (if there will be any) shall be responsible to transfer the pension allocations of Employee according to the Agreement and will not, at any time or for any reason, cause a waiver and/or diminution of Employees disability insurance and/or survivors insurance, as required by law. Should Employee fail to deliver a Notification to Company, Company shall be authorized to elect a pension scheme for Employee at its sole discretion (the Approved Scheme). Employee acknowledges and agrees that she shall not have any claim, suit or demand with respect to the Approved Scheme (if any) and the Approved Scheme shall be considered as a scheme which is acceptable to her.
Company shall deduct any and all taxes on behalf of Employee with respect to any of the contributions which exceed the ceiling provided under the income tax laws (should such contributions be permissible).
Employees rights shall be secured in accordance with the provisions of the Order published pursuant to Section 14 of the Severance Pay Law, 1963, as amended and as shall be amended from time to time (the Order). The Order as published up to the date of this Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit C.

3.1. Employee will notify and disclose in writing to the Company, or any persons designated by the Company from time to time, all information, improvements, inventions, trademarks, works, designs, trade secrets, formulae, processes, techniques, know-how and data, whether or not patentable or registerable under copyright or any similar laws, made or conceived or reduced to practice or learned by Employee, either alone or jointly with others, during Employees employment with the Company (including after hours, on weekends or during vacation time) (all such information, improvements, inventions, trademarks, works, designs, trade secrets, formulae, processes, techniques, know-how, and data are hereinafter referred to as the Invention(s)) immediately upon discovery, receipt or invention as applicable.

3.3. Employee represents that there are no information improvements inventions, formulae, processes, techniques, know-how and data, whether or not patentable or registerable under copyright or any similar laws, and whether or not reduced to practice, original works of authorship and trade secrets made or conceived by or belonging to Employee (whether made solely by the Employee or jointly with others) that: (i) were developed by the Employee prior to Employees employment with the Company, (ii) relate to the Companys actual or proposed business, products or research and development, and (iii) are not assigned to the Company hereunder.
3.4. Employee further agrees to perform, during and after Employees employment with the Company, all acts deemed reasonably necessary or desirable by the Company to permit and assist it, at the Companys expense, in obtaining, maintaining, defending and enforcing the Inventions in any and all countries. Such acts may include, but are not limited to, execution of documents and assistance or cooperation in legal proceedings. Employee hereby irrevocably designates and appoints the Company and its duly authorized officers and agents as Employees agents and attorneys-in-fact to act for and on Employees behalf and instead of Employee, to execute and file any documents and to do all other lawfully permitted acts to further the above purposes with the same legal force and effect as if executed by Employee.
3.5. Employee shall not be entitled, with respect to any and all of the above to any monetary consideration or any other consideration except as explicitly set forth in the employment agreement between Employee and the Company. Without limitation of the foregoing, Employee irrevocably confirms that the consideration explicitly set forth in Employees employment agreement with the Company is in lieu of any rights for compensation that may arise in connection with the Inventions under applicable law and waives any right to claim royalties or other consideration with respect to any Invention including under Section 134 of the Israeli Patent Law, 1967 (or any successor or equivalent law). With respect to any and all of the above, any oral understanding, communication or agreement not memorialized in writing and duly signed by an authorized officer of the Company, shall be void.
4.1. Employee represents that the performance of all the terms of this Undertaking and of all of Employees duties and services to the Company does not and will not breach any invention assignment, proprietary information, non-compete, confidentiality or similar agreements with, or rules, regulations or policies of, any former employer or other party (including, without limitation, any academic institution or any entity related thereto). Employee acknowledges that the Company is relying upon the truthfulness and accuracy of such representations in engaging Employee.
4.2. Employee acknowledges that the provisions of this Undertaking serve as an integral part of the terms of Employees employment with the Company and reflect the reasonable requirements of the Company in order to protect its legitimate interests with respect to the subject matter hereof. The Employee hereby explicitly acknowledges that the restrictions set forth in this Confidentiality Agreement are not greater than required and do not unduly burden the Employee.
4.3. Employee hereby consents that following the termination or expiration of the employment relationship hereunder, the Company may notify the Employees new employer about the Employees rights and obligations under this Undertaking.
4.4. It is agreed and understood that if a court of law finds that the Employee has violated Section 2 of this Confidentiality Agreement, then the restrictions set forth in such section shall automatically be extended for any period of time for which the court finds that the Employee violated such restrictions.
4.5. Employee recognizes and acknowledges that in the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Undertaking by Employee the Company may suffer irreparable harm or damage and that under such circumstances monetary remedies would be inadequate to protect against any actual or threatened breach of this Confidentiality Agreement. Without prejudice to any other rights and/or remedies otherwise available to the Company, it is therefore agreed that the Company will be entitled to the granting of equitable relief, including but not limited to injunctive relief and specific performance, in favor of the Company without proof of actual damages to remedy or prevent any breach of this Undertaking (without limitation to any other remedy at law or in equity).
4.6. This Undertaking shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Israel, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles which may result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any and all disputes in connection with this Undertaking shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent courts or tribunals as applicable, located in Tel-Aviv-Jaffa, Israel. It is agreed that each party irrevocably consents to the exercise of personal jurisdiction over such party by such court, agrees that venue shall be proper in such court, and irrevocably waives and releases any and all defenses based on lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue or forum non conveniens.
4.7. If any provision of this Undertaking is determined by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision will be enforced to the maximum extent possible given the intent of the parties hereto. If such clause or provision cannot be so enforced, such provision shall be stricken from this Undertaking only with respect to such jurisdiction in which such clause or provision cannot be enforced, and the remainder of this Undertaking shall be enforced as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable clause or provision had (to the extent not enforceable) never been contained in this Undertaking. In addition, if any particular provision contained in this Undertaking shall for any reason be held to be excessively broad as to duration, geographical scope, activity or subject, it shall be construed by limiting and reducing the scope of such provision so that the provision is enforceable to the fullest extent compatible with applicable law.
4.8. The provisions of this Undertaking shall continue and remain in full force and effect following the termination or expiration of the employment between the Company and Employee, for whatever reason. This Undertaking shall not serve in any manner so as to derogate from any of Employees obligations and liabilities under any applicable law.
4.9. This Undertaking constitutes the entire agreement between Employee and the Company with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements, proposals, understandings and arrangements, if any, whether oral or written, with respect to the subject matter hereof. No amendment, waiver or modification of any obligation under this Undertaking will be enforceable unless set forth in a writing signed by an authorized officer of the Company. No delay or failure to require performance of any provision of this Undertaking shall constitute a waiver of that provision as to that or any other instance. No waiver granted under this Undertaking as to any one provision herein shall constitute a subsequent waiver of such provision or of any other provision herein, nor shall it constitute the waiver of any performance other than the actual performance specifically waived.
4.10. All notices and other communications under this Confidentiality Agreement shall be in writing and shall be given in person, by fax, electronic or certified or registered mail and shall be deemed to have been duly given twenty-four (24) hours after transmission of a fax or electronic email, three (3) days after sending a notice by certified or registered mail, or immediately upon delivery in person or explicit confirmation of receipt.
4.11. This Undertaking, the rights of the Company hereunder, and the obligations of Employee hereunder, will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of their respective successors, assigns, heirs, executors, administrators and legal representatives. The Company may assign any of its rights under this Undertaking. Employee may not assign, whether voluntarily or by operation of law, any of its obligations under this Undertaking, except with the prior written consent of an authorized officer of the Company.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned executed and delivered this CONFIDENTIALITY, UNFAIR COMPETITION, AND OWNERSHIP OF INVENTIONS UNDERTAKING effective as of the date first mentioned above.
