However, the Company shall not use the Consultants name or CSHLs name in any press release, or quote the Consultant in any company materials, or otherwise use the Consultants name or CSHLs name in a manner not specifically permitted by the preceding sentence, unless in each case the Company obtains in advance CSHLs written consent, and, in the case of the use of the Consultants name, the Consultants consent as well.
