8. General Provisions.
8.1 Severability. In case any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect the other provisions of this Agreement, and this Agreement shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein. If moreover, any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement 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 it, so as to be enforceable to the extent compatible with the applicable law as it shall then appear.
8.2 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement will be binding upon my heirs, executors, administrators and other legal representatives and will be for the benefit of the Company, its successors, and its assigns.
8.3 Survival. The provisions of this Agreement shall survive the termination of my employment and the assignment of this Agreement by the Company to any successor in interest or other assignee; provided, however, that the provisions of Section 4 of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect only for the period of time detailed therein.
8.4 Waiver. No waiver by the Company of any breach of this Agreement shall be a waiver of any preceding or succeeding breach.

I agree that it would be difficult to measure damage to the Company from any breach of mine of the promises set forth in Sections 1, 2, 3 and 4 hereof, and that injury to the Company from any such breach would be impossible to calculate, and that money damages would therefore be an inadequate remedy for any such breach. Accordingly, I agree that if I breach any provision of Sections 1, 2, 3 and 4 hereof, the Company will be entitled, in addition to a l other remedies it may have, to an injunction or other appropriate orders to restrain any such breach by me without showing or proving any actual damage sustained by the Company.
