The Company hereby grants this Award of PSUs, pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions of this Award Agreement and the Plan, the Company will pay to the Grantee on the Settlement Date one (1) Share as of the Settlement Date multiplied by the number of vested PSUs earned hereby, subject to applicable withholding for taxes.
2.Vesting. The Award is subject to the vesting terms set forth in the Summary of Award Terms above, except as may otherwise be provided in this Award Agreement or in the Plan.

(a)If the Grantee has a termination of employment or a leave of absence that isn’t a qualified leave of absence under the applicable Company’s or Affiliate’s employment policies (“Qualified Leave”) prior to the end of the Performance Period for any reason, then except as provided in an employment agreement between the Company and the Grantee then in effect, the Grantee shall forfeit, and shall have no further rights or interest with respect to, any of the PSUs granted hereby, with automatic and immediate effect as of the termination of employment date.

(a)The Grantee has received a copy of the Plan, has reviewed the Plan and this Award Agreement in their entirety, and has had an opportunity to obtain the advice of independent legal counsel prior to accepting the Award.
(b)The Grantee has had the opportunity to consult with a tax advisor concerning the tax consequences of accepting the Award, and understands that the Company makes no representation regarding the tax treatment as to any aspect of the Award, including the grant, vesting, settlement, or conversion of the Award.
(c)The Grantee understands that neither the grant of this Award nor the Grantee’s participation in the Plan confers any right to continue in the service of the Company or any Affiliate or to receive any other award or amount of compensation, whether under the Plan or otherwise, and no payment of any award under the Plan will be taken into account in determining any benefits under any pension, retirement, profit sharing, group insurance, or other benefit plan of the Company or any Affiliate except as otherwise specifically provided in such other plan.
(d)The Grantee consents to the collection, use, and transfer, in electronic or other form, of the Grantee’s personal data by the Company, any Affiliate, the Committee, and any third party retained to administer the Plan for the exclusive purpose of administering the Award and Grantee’s participation in the Plan. The Grantee agrees to promptly notify the Committee of any changes in the Grantee’s name, address, or contact information during the entire period of Plan participation.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Grantee hereby explicitly and unambiguously consents to the collection, use and transfer, in electronic or other form, of the Grantee’s personal data as described in this award Agreement and any other equity grant materials ("Data") by and among, as applicable, the Company and any Affiliate employer for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Grantee's participation in the Plan. The Grantee understands that the Company and any Affiliate may hold certain personal data about the Grantee, including, but not limited to, the Grantee’s name, home address and telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth, Social Security number, passport or other identification number, salary, nationality, job title, any shares of stock or directorships held in the Company or any Affiliate, details of all equity or any other entitled to shares of stock awarded, canceled, exercised, vested, unvested or outstanding in the Grantee’s favor, for the exclusive purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Plan.
The Grantee understands that Data may be transferred to a third party (or third parties) to assist the Company and any Affiliate with the implementation, administration and management of the Plan. The Grantee understands the recipients of the Data may be located in the Grantee’s country, in the United States or elsewhere, and that the recipients’ country may have different data privacy laws and protections than the Grantee’s country. The Grantee understands that the Grantee may request a list with the names and addresses of any potential recipients of Data by contacting the Grantee’s local human resources representative. The Grantee authorizes the Company and any Affiliate, and any foregoing third party, and any other possible recipients which may assist the Company or any Affiliate (whether presently or in the future) with implementing, administering and managing the Plan to receive, possess, use, retain and transfer Data, in electronic or other form, for the sole purpose of implementing, administering and managing the Grantee’s participation in the Plan. The Grantee understands that Data will be held only as long as is necessary to implement, administer and manage the Grantee’s participation in the Plan, including any requisite transfer of such Data as may be required to a broker or other third party with whom the Grantee may elect to deposit any Shares acquired upon settlement of the Award. The Grantee understands that the Grantee may, at any time, view Data, request information about the storage and processing of Data, require any necessary amendments to Data or refuse or withdraw the consents herein, in any case without cost, by contacting in writing the Grantee’s local human resources representative. Further, the Grantee understands that the Grantee is providing the consents herein on a purely voluntary basis. If the Grantee does not consent, or if the Grantee later revokes his or her consent, the Grantee’s employment status or service with the Company or any Affiliate will not be affected; the only consequence of refusing or withdrawing the Grantee’s consent is that the Company would not be able to grant the Award or other equity awards to the Grantee or administer or maintain such Award or other equity awards. Therefore, the Grantee understands that refusing or withdrawing the Grantee’s consent may affect the Grantee’s ability to participate in the Plan. For more information on the consequences of the Grantee’s refusal to consent or withdrawal of consent, the Grantee understands that the Grantee may contact the Participant’s local human resources representative.
