4. Other Benefits
4.1 Certain Benefits. Executive may participate in employee benefit programs established by Company for personnel on a basis commensurate with Executive’s position and in accordance with Company’s benefit plans and arrangements from time to time, including eligibility requirements. Company shall have the right to amend or terminate any such plans or programs. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Executive acknowledges that its participation in certain benefit programs may be limited if Executive is not viewed or treated as an employee of Company for federal income tax purposes.
4.2 Expenses. Company shall reimburse Executive in accordance with Company’s policies and procedures for reasonable expenses necessarily incurred in Executive’s performance of Executive’s duties against appropriate receipts and vouchers indicating the specific business purpose for each such expenditure, including travel expenses.
The following provisions shall apply upon termination of Executive’s employment under applicable circumstances as set forth below. Any amount payable to Executive under this Section 5 shall be subject to all applicable federal, state and local withholdings, or payroll or other taxes. Except as set forth in this Section 5, upon termination of employment, Executive shall not be entitled to further payments, severance or other benefits arising under this Agreement or from Executive’s employment with Company or its termination, except as required by law.
5.1 By Company with Cause. Company shall be permitted to terminate for Cause Executive’s employment hereunder prior to expiration of the Initial Term. Upon termination of Executive’s employment for Cause, Executive shall be paid unpaid wages including all deferred compensation earned through the termination date.
5.1.1. “Cause,” as used herein, shall mean Executive’s (i) willful and continued failure to perform his material duties with respect to Company or its affiliates (except where due to a physical or mental incapacity) which continues beyond fifteen (15) business days after a written demand for substantial performance is delivered to Executive by Company, (ii) conviction of or plea nolo contendere to (A) the commission of a felony by Executive, or (B) any misdemeanor that is a crime of moral turpitude, (iii) Executive’s willful and gross misconduct in connection with his employment duties, (iv) breach of the non-competition, non-solicitation or confidentiality covenants to which Executive is subject, (v) any willful and intentional act having the intended effect of injuring the reputation, business or business relationships of Company or its affiliates. No act on Executive’s part shall be deemed “willful” unless done, or omitted to be done, by Executive not in good faith and without reasonable belief that such action was in the best interest of Company. No failure of Executive or Company to achieve performance goals, in and of itself, shall be treated as a basis for termination of Executive’s employment for Cause. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no termination shall be treated as for “Cause” (and any such termination shall instead be treated as without “Cause”) unless (i) Executive has been given not less than fifteen (15) business days’ written notice by the Chief Executive Officer or the board of its intention to terminate Executive’s employment for Cause, such notice to state in detail the particular act or acts or failure or failures to act that constitute the grounds on which the proposed termination for Cause is based (the “Cause Notice”), (ii) the Cause Notice is delivered not later than sixty (60) days after the Chief Executive or board’s learning of such act or acts or failure or failures to act, and (iii) the Chief Executive or board has thereafter provided Executive with a copy of a resolution duly adopted by the board (after Executive has been given a reasonable opportunity, together with counsel, to be heard before the board) confirming that, in its judgment, grounds for Cause on the basis of the original notice exist, and no cure was timely effected.
5.2 By Company other than for Cause or Total Disability or by Executive for Good Reason. If Company terminates Executive’s employment other than for Cause, Total Disability (as defined below), or death, Company shall pay to Executive a severance payment equal to the number of months remaining in the Initial Term at such time, multiplied by the Monthly Base Salary at such time; provided, however, that Executive’s entitlement to such severance amount is conditioned upon Executive executing and not revoking a release substantially in the form attached as Exhibit A (the “Release”) within the applicable 28 or 52 day time period provided for therein (the “Applicable Release Period”); provided, however, that in any case where the first and last days of the Applicable Release Period are in two separate taxable years, any payments required to be made to Executive that are treated as deferred compensation for purposes of Code Section 409A shall be made in the later taxable year, promptly following the conclusion of the Applicable Release Period.
5.3 Total Disability. If Company or Executive terminates Executive’s employment due to Executive’s Total Disability, Company shall pay to Executive unpaid wages earned through the termination date (including deferred compensation), plus a severance payment equal to $25,000. “Total Disability” as used herein shall have the same meaning as the term “Total Disability” as used in Company’s long-term disability policy in effect at the time of termination, if one exists. If Company does not have a long-term disability policy in effect at such time, the term “Total Disability” shall mean Executive’s inability (with or without such accommodation as may be required by law protecting persons with disabilities) to perform the essential functions of Executive’s duties hereunder for a period aggregating to ninety (90) calendar days in a twelve (12) month period, provided, however, that this period may be extended in the sole discretion of the Chief Executive Officer.
5.4 Death. If Executive’s employment terminates due to death, Company shall pay to Executive’s estate the unpaid wages earned through the termination date, plus a severance payment equal to $25,000.
6. Confidential Information
6.1 Executive recognizes that the success of Company and its current or future Affiliates (as defined below in this Section 6) and Managed Companies depends upon the protection of information or materials that are designated as confidential and/or proprietary at the time of disclosure or should, based on their nature or the circumstances surrounding such disclosure, reasonably be deemed confidential including, without limitation, information to which Executive has access while employed by Company whether recorded in any medium or merely memorized (all such information being “Confidential Information”). Confidential Information includes without limitation, and whether or not such information is specifically designated as confidential or proprietary: all business plans and marketing strategies; information concerning existing and prospective markets, suppliers, and customers; financial information; information concerning the development of new products and services; and technical and non technical data related to software programs, designs, specifications, compilations, inventions (as defined in Section 8.1), improvements, patent applications, studies, research, methods, devices, prototypes, processes, procedures and techniques. Confidential Information expressly includes information provided to Company by third parties under circumstances that require them to maintain the confidentiality of such information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Executive shall have no confidentiality obligation with respect to disclosure of any Confidential Information that (a) was, or at any time becomes, available in the public domain other than through a violation of this Agreement or (b) Executive can demonstrate by written evidence was furnished to Executive by a third party in lawful possession thereof and who was not under an obligation of confidentiality to Company or any of its Affiliates or Managed Companies.
6.2 Executive agrees that during Executive’s employment and after termination of employment irrespective of cause, Executive will use Confidential Information only for the benefit of Company and will not directly or indirectly use or divulge, or permit others to use or divulge, any Confidential Information for any reason, except as authorized by Company. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Executive may disclose Confidential Information as required pursuant to an order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other government body, provided Executive has notified Company immediately after receipt of such order or requirement and allowed Company a meaningful opportunity to apply for protective measures, if time permits.
6.3 Executive hereby assigns to Company any rights Executive may have or acquire in such Confidential Information and acknowledges that all Confidential Information shall be the sole property of Company or its assigns.
6.4 There are no rights granted or any understandings, agreements or representations between the parties hereto, express or implied, regarding Confidential Information that are not specified herein.
6.5 Executive’s obligations under this Section 6 are in addition to any obligations that Executive has under state or federal law.

6.7 Executive’s obligations under this Section 6 shall survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of eighteen (18) months thereafter.
7. Return of Company Property
Executive acknowledges that all tangible items containing any Confidential Information, including without limitation memoranda, photographs, records, reports, manuals, drawings, blueprints, prototypes, notes, documents, drawings, specifications, software, media and other materials, including any copies thereof (including electronically recorded copies), are the exclusive property of Company, and Executive shall deliver to Company all such material in Executive’s possession or control upon Company’s request and in any event upon the termination of Executive’s employment with Company. Executive shall also return any keys, equipment, identification or credit cards, or other property belonging to Company upon termination or request.
8.1 Executive understands and agrees that all Inventions are the exclusive property of Company. As used in this Agreement, “Inventions” shall include without limitation ideas, discoveries, developments, concepts, inventions, original works of authorship, trademarks, mask works, trade secrets, ideas, data, information, know-how, documentation, formulae, results, prototypes, designs, methods, processes, products, formulas and techniques, improvements to any of the foregoing, and all other matters ordinarily intended by the words “intellectual property,” whether or not patentable, copyrightable, or otherwise able to be registered, which are developed, created, conceived of or reduced to practice by Executive, alone or with others, during Executive’s employment with Company or Affiliates, whether or not during working hours or within three (3) months thereafter and related to Company’s then existing or proposed business. In recognition of Company’s ownership of all Inventions, Executive shall make prompt and full disclosure to Company of, will hold in trust for the sole benefit of Company, and (subject to Section 8.2 below) hereby assigns, and agrees to assign in the future, exclusively to Company all of Executive’s right, title, and interest in and to any and all such Inventions.
8.2 Executive understands that Executive’s obligation to assign inventions shall not apply to any inventions for which no equipment, supplies, facilities, or trade secret information of Company was used and that was developed entirely on Executive’s own time, unless (a) the invention relates (i) directly to the business of Company, or (ii) to Company’s actual or demonstrably anticipated research or development, or (b) the invention results from any work performed by Executive for Company.
8.3 To the extent any works of authorship created by Executive made within the scope of employment may be considered “works made for hire” under United States copyright laws, they are hereby agreed to be works made for hire. To the extent any such works do not qualify as a “work made for hire” under applicable law, and to the extent they include material subject to copyright, Executive hereby irrevocably and exclusively assigns and conveys all rights, title and interests in such works to Company subject to no liens, claims or reserved rights. Executive hereby waives any and all “moral rights” that may be applicable to any of the foregoing, for any and all uses, alterations, and exploitation thereof by Company, or its successors, assignees or licensees. To the extent that any such “moral rights” may not be waived in accordance with law, Executive agrees not to bring any claims, actions or litigation against Company or its successors, assignees or licensees, based on or to enforce such rights. Without limiting the preceding, Executive agrees that Company may in its discretion edit, modify, recast, use, and promote any such works of authorship, and derivatives thereof, without the use of Executive’s name or image, without compensation to Executive other than that expressly set forth herein.
8.4 Executive hereby waives and quitclaims to Company any and all claims of any nature whatsoever that Executive now or hereafter may have for infringement of any patent or patents from any patent applications for any Inventions. Executive agrees to cooperate fully with Company and take all other such acts requested by Company (including signing applications for patents, assignments, and other papers, and such things as Company may require) to enable Company to establish and protect its ownership in any Inventions and to carry out the intent and purpose of this Agreement, during Executive’s employment or thereafter. If Executive fails to execute such documents by reason of death, mental or physical incapacity or any other reason, Executive hereby irrevocably appoints Company and its officers and agents as Executive’s agent and attorney-in-fact to execute such documents on Executive’s behalf.
8.5 Executive agrees that there are no Inventions made by Executive prior to Executive’s employment with Company and belonging to Executive that Executive wishes to have excluded from this Section 8 (the “Excluded Inventions”). If during Executive’s employment with Company, Executive uses in the specifications or development of, or otherwise incorporates into a product, process, service, technology, or machine of Company, or otherwise uses any invention, proprietary know-how, or other intellectual property in existence before the Effective Date owned by Executive or in which Executive has any interest (“Existing Know How”), Company is hereby granted and shall have a non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid up, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide right and license under the Existing Know-How (including any patent or other intellectual property rights therein) to make, have made, use, sell, reproduce, distribute, make derivative works from, publicly perform and display, and import, and to sublicense any and all of the foregoing rights to that Existing Know-How (including the right to grant further sublicenses) without restriction as to the extent of Executive’s ownership or interest, for so long as such Existing Know-How is in existence and is licensable by Executive.
9.1 During Executive’s employment with Company, and for a period expiring eighteen (18) months after the termination of Executive’s employment, regardless of the reason, if any, for such termination, Executive shall not, directly or indirectly:
9.1.1 solicit or entice away or in any other manner persuade or attempt to persuade any officer or employee of Company to alter or discontinue his or her relationship with Company;
9.1.2 solicit from any person or entity that was a customer of Company during Executive’s employment with Company, any business of a type or nature similar to the business of Company or any of its Affiliates or Managed Companies with such customer;
9.1.3 solicit, divert, or in any other manner persuade or attempt to persuade any supplier of Company to discontinue its relationship with Company;
9.1.4 engage in or participate in the development, engineering or sale of smart sprinkler controllers; or
9.1.5 solicit, divert, take away any customers of Company.
9.2 Nothing in Section 9.1 limits Executive’s ability to hire an employee of Company or any of its Affiliates or Managed Companies in circumstances under which such employee first contacts Executive regarding employment and Executive does not violate any of Sections 9.1.1, 9.1.2, 9.1.3, 9.1.4 or 9.1.5 herein.
9.3 Company and Executive agree that the provisions of this Section 9 do not impose an undue hardship on Executive and are not injurious to the public; that this provision is necessary to protect the business of Company; that the nature of Executive’s responsibilities with Company under this Agreement provide and/or will provide Executive with access to Confidential Information that is valuable and confidential to Company; that Company would not employ Executive if Executive did not agree to the provisions of this Section 9; that this Section 9 is reasonable in terms of length of time and scope; and that adequate consideration supports this Section 9. In the event that a court determines that any provision of this Section 9 is unreasonably broad or extensive, Executive agrees that such Court should narrow such provision to the extent necessary to make it reasonable and enforce the provision as narrowed.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement regarding dispute resolution, including Section 10, Executive agrees that Executive’s violation of any of Sections 6, 7, 8 or 9 of this Agreement may cause Company irreparable harm which would not be adequately compensated by monetary damages and that an injunction may be granted by any court or courts having jurisdiction, restraining Executive from violation of the terms of this Agreement, upon any breach or threatened breach of Executive of the obligations set forth in any of Sections 6, 7, 8 or 9. The preceding sentence shall not be construed to limit Company from any other relief or damages to which it may be entitled as a result of Executive’s breach of any provision of this Agreement, including Sections 6, 7, 8 or 9.
Except for proceedings for injunctive relief, the venue of any litigation arising out of Executive’s employment with Company or interpreting or enforcing this Agreement shall lie in a court of appropriate jurisdiction in Clark County, Nevada.
The prevailing party will be entitled to its reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees incurred in any litigation relating to the interpretation or enforcement of this Agreement.
Executive agrees fully and completely to reveal the terms of Sections 6, 7, 8 or 9 of this Agreement to any future employer or business contacts of Executive and authorizes Company, at their election, to make such disclosure.
14. Representation of Executive
Executive represents and warrants to Company that Executive is free to enter into this Agreement and has no commitment, arrangement or understanding to or with any party that restrains or is in conflict with Executive’s performance of the covenants, services and duties provided for in this Agreement. Executive shall not in the course of Executive’s employment violate any obligation that Executive may owe any third party, including former employers.
During Executive’s employment, this Agreement may not be assigned by either party without the written consent of the other; provided, however, that Company may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement without Executive’s consent to any of its Affiliates or to a successor by sale, merger or liquidation, if such successor carries on the business substantially in the form in which it is being conducted at the time of the sale, merger or liquidation and notwithstanding anything in this Agreement, such assignment and Executive’s transfer of employment thereunder shall not be deemed a termination of employment under Section 5.2 of this Agreement. This Agreement is binding upon Executive, Executive’s heirs, personal representatives and permitted assigns and on Company, its successors and assigns.
All notices, requests, consents, and other communications required or permitted to be given hereunder, shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly give if delivered personally or sent by Fedex, or mailed first class postage prepaid as follows:
If to Employee: _________________________
If to Company: ________________________
If any provision of this Agreement or compliance by any of the parties with any provision of this Agreement constitutes a violation of any law, or is or becomes unenforceable or void, then such provision, to the extent only that it is in violation of law, unenforceable or void, shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary so that it is no longer in violation of law, unenforceable or void, and such provision will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law. If such modification is not possible, said provision, to the extent that it is in violation of law, unenforceable or void, shall be deemed severable from the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which provisions will remain binding on the parties.
No failure on the part of either party to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right or remedy hereunder will operate as a waiver thereof; nor will any single or partial waiver of a breach of any provision of this Agreement operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach; nor will any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy granted hereby or by law.
