Section 6.10 - Covenant Not to Compete; Confidential Information; No Raid; Specific Performance
(a)In consideration of the Company entering into the Term Sheet and these Terms and Conditions with the Employee, the Employee hereby agrees effective as of the Grant Date, for so long as the Employee is employed by the Company or one of its Affiliates and for a period of one year thereafter (the “Noncompete Period”), the Employee shall not, without the Company’s prior written consent, directly or indirectly, engage in, be employed by, act as a consultant for or have a financial interest (other than an ownership position of less than 1% in any company whose shares are publicly traded or any non-voting, non-convertible debt securities in any company) in any business engaged in Company Business, or work for or provide services to any Competitor of the Company or its Affiliates, within the United States or within any foreign country in which the Company or its Affiliates (i) has an office, (ii) is or has engaged in Company Business or (iii) proposes to engage in Company Business, as of the date of the termination of the Employee’s association with the Company. For the purposes of these provisions, (A) the term “Company Business” shall mean any business related to weight loss or weight management programs, products, services and/or other similar activities; and (B) the term “Competitor” means any natural person, corporation, limited liability company, firm, organization, trust, partnership, association, joint venture, government agency or other entity (including, but not limited to, the websites and other electronic or digital media of such entities) that engages, or proposes to engage, in Company Business, including, but not limited to, (x) entities which are directly engaged in Company Business; and (y) entities which have a primary focus in broader topic areas, but who nevertheless engage in Company Business such as Unilever (Slimfast) (provided, however, only the part of such entities that are engaged in or oversee Company Business shall be deemed a “Competitor” for purposes of these provisions).
(b)The Employee will not disclose or use at any time, any Confidential Information (as defined below) of which the Employee is or becomes aware, whether or not such information is developed by him or her, except (i) to the extent that such disclosure or use is directly related to and required by the Employee performance of duties, if any, assigned to the Employee by the Company or its Affiliates or (ii) pursuant to the order of any court or administrative agency. As used herein, the term “Confidential Information” means information that is not generally known to the public and that is used, developed or obtained by the Company or its Affiliates in connection with its business, including but not limited to (i) products or services, (ii) fees, costs and pricing structures, (iii) business and financial results, plans, budgets, and projections, (iv) designs, content and other creative elements associated with products and services or marketing and promotional campaigns and programs, (v) computer software, including operating systems, applications and program listings, (vi) flow charts, manuals and documentation, (vii) data bases, (viii) accounting and business methods, (ix) inventions, devices, new developments, methods and processes, whether patentable or unpatentable and whether or not reduced to practice, (x) customers and clients and customer or client lists, (xi) other copyrightable works, (xii) all technology and trade secrets, and (xiii) all similar and related information in whatever form. Confidential Information will not include any information that has been published in a form generally available to the public by a person or entity other than the Employee prior to the date the Employee proposes to disclose or use such information.
(i)Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall prohibit or impede the Employee from communicating, cooperating or filing a complaint with any U.S. federal, state or local governmental or law enforcement branch, agency or entity (collectively, a “Governmental Entity”) with respect to possible violations of any U.S. federal, state or local law or regulation, or otherwise making disclosures to any Governmental Entity, in each case, that are protected under the whistleblower provisions of any such law or regulation, provided that in each case such communications and disclosures are consistent with applicable law. The Employee does not need the prior authorization of (or to give notice to) the Company regarding any such communication or disclosure. The Employee hereby confirms that the Employee understands and acknowledges that an individual shall not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that is made either (1) in confidence to a federal, state, or local government official or to an attorney solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law, or (2) in a complaint or other document filed in a lawsuit or other proceeding, if such filing is made under seal. The Employee understands and acknowledges further that an individual who files a lawsuit for retaliation by an employer for reporting a suspected violation of law may disclose the trade secret to the attorney of the individual and use the trade secret information in the court proceeding, if the individual files any document containing the trade secret under seal, and does not disclose the trade secret, except pursuant to court order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, under no circumstance will the Employee be authorized to disclose any information covered by the Company’s attorney-client privilege or the Company’s attorney work product (A) without the prior written consent of the Company’s General Counsel or other officer designated by the Company, or (B) unless such disclosure of that information would otherwise be permitted pursuant to 17 CFR 205.3(d)(2), applicable state attorney conduct rules, or otherwise under applicable law or court order.
The Employee acknowledges and agrees that all copyrights, works, inventions, innovations, improvements, developments, patents, trademarks and all similar or related information which relate to the actual or anticipated business of the Company and its subsidiaries (including its predecessors) and conceived, developed or made by the Employee while employed by the Company or its Affiliates belong to the Company. The Employee will perform all actions reasonably requested by the Company (whether during or after the Noncompete Period) to establish and confirm such ownership at the Company’s expense (including without limitation assignments, consents, powers of attorney and other instruments).
(c)The Employee shall disclose promptly in writing and assign immediately, and hereby assigns to the Company, all of the Employee’s right, title and interest in and to, any original works of authorship, formulas, processes, programs, benchmarking, solutions, tools, content, databases, techniques, know-how, data, developments, innovations, inventions, improvements, trademarks, patents, copyrights or discoveries, whether or not copyrightable, patentable or otherwise legally protectable, and whether or not they exist in electronic form, print form or other tangible or intangible form of medium (hereinafter referred to collectively as “Work Product”), which the Employee makes or conceives, or first reduces to practice or learns, either solely or jointly with others, during his or her employment period with the Company or its Affiliates, through the Employee’s work with the Company or its Affiliates, or with any other person or entity pursuant to an assignment by the Company or its Affiliates. The Employee acknowledges the special interest the Company and its Affiliates hold in its processes, techniques and technologies and agrees that such processes, techniques and technologies shall not be directly or indirectly used or distributed by the Employee for the interests of any person or entity besides the Company or its Affiliates.
(i)All disclosures and assignments made pursuant to these Terms and Conditions are made without royalty or any additional consideration to the Employee other than the regular compensation paid to the Employee by the Company or its Affiliates.
(ii)The Employee shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to the Company or its Affiliates all necessary documents, and shall take such other action as may be necessary to assist the Company in obtaining by statute, copyrights, patents, trademarks or other statutory or common law protections for the Work Product covered by these Terms and Conditions, vesting title and right in such copyrights, patents, trademarks and other protections in the Company and its designees. The Employee hereby agrees that the Work Product constitutes a “work made for hire” in accordance with the definition of that term under the U.S. copyright laws. The Employee shall further assist the Company or its Affiliates in every proper and reasonable way to enforce such copyrights, patents, trademarks and other protections as the Company may desire. The Employee’s obligation to deliver documents and assist the Company or its Affiliates under these Terms and Conditions applies both during and subsequent to the term of his/her employment.
(iii)Any Work Product which the Employee may disclose to anyone within six (6) months after the termination of his/her employment, or for which the Company or its Affiliates may file an application for copyright, patent, trademark or other statutory or common law protection within twelve (12) months after the termination of said employment, shall be presumed to have been made, conceived, first reduced to practice or learned during the term of the Employee’s employment and fully subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein; provided that if the Employee in fact, conceived any such Work Product subsequent to the termination of the employment and such Work Product is not based upon or derived from Confidential Information of the Company or its Affiliates or does not relate to the scope of work performed by the Employee pursuant to his/her employment duties with the Company or its Affiliates, then such Work Product shall belong to the Employee and shall be the Employee’s sole property. The Employee assumes the responsibility of establishing by competent legal evidence that such Work Product is not based on such Confidential Information and that the Employee conceived any such Work Product after the termination of his/her employment.
(iv)The Employee represents that the Work Product does not infringe any copyright, patent or other proprietary right of any person or entity.
(v)Attached to and made as part of these Terms and Conditions as Exhibit B is a complete list of all Work Product, whether or not copyrighted, which has been made or conceived or first reduced to practice by the Employee alone or jointly prior to the date of his or her employment with the Company or its Affiliates. Such Work Product shall be excluded from the operation of these Terms and Conditions. If there is no such list on Exhibit B, the Employee represents that no such Work Product exists at the time of execution of these Terms and Conditions.
(d)Without the Company’s prior written consent, the Employee will not, during the Noncompete Period, directly or indirectly, solicit or offer employment to any person who has been employed by the Company or its Affiliates at any time during the twelve months immediately preceding such solicitation.
(e)Notwithstanding clauses (a), (b), (c) and (d) above, if at any time a court holds that the restrictions stated in such clauses (a), (b), (c) and (d) are unreasonable or otherwise unenforceable under circumstances then existing, the parties hereto agree that the maximum period, scope or geographic area determined to be reasonable under such circumstances by such court will be substituted for the stated period, scope or area. Because the Employee’s services are unique and because the Employee has had access to Confidential Information, the parties hereto agree that money damages will be an inadequate remedy for any breach of these Terms and Conditions. In the event of a breach or threatened breach of these Terms and Conditions, the Company or its Affiliates or their successors or assigns may, in addition to other rights and remedies existing in their favor, apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for specific performance and/or injunctive relief in order to enforce, or prevent any violations of, the provisions hereof (without the posting of a bond or other security).
(f)The Employee acknowledges and agrees that the restrictions and remedies under this Section 6.10 are non-exclusive restrictions and remedies and shall not limit or modify any other restrictive covenants to which Employee is subject to as a result of Employee’s employment with or services to the Company or any of its Affiliates nor shall such restrictions and remedies limit or modify the Company’s and its Affiliates’ other rights and remedies to obtain other monetary, equitable or injunctive relief as a result of breach of, or in order to enforce, these Terms and Conditions or with respect to any other covenants or agreements between the Company or any of its Affiliates and the Employee or the Employee's obligations under applicable law.
Section 6.11 – Liability and Disposition
Except as otherwise provided herein, neither the Options nor any interest or right therein or part thereof shall be liable for the debts, contracts or engagements of the Employee or his or her successors in interest or shall be subject to disposition by transfer, alienation, anticipation, pledge, encumbrance, assignment or any other means whether such disposition be voluntary or involuntary or by operation of law by judgment, levy, attachment, garnishment or any other legal or equitable proceedings (including bankruptcy), and any attempted disposition thereof shall be null and void and of no effect; provided, however, that this Section 6.11 shall not prevent transfers by will or by the applicable laws of descent and distribution.
Section 6.12 ‑ Amendment
