2. Independent Contractor; Indemnity

2.2. The Consultant hereby represents and warrants that the nature of the relationship with the Company was determined at the Consultant’s explicit request, for its own personal reasons, and that it explicitly demanded from the Company that no employee - employer relations be established between the Consultant or any of the Consultant Employees and the Company.

2.3. The Fee constitutes the sole and exclusive consideration, which the Company shall be required to pay the Consultant (including any of the Consultant Employees) under this Agreement, and it includes any and all payments to which the Consultant or the Consultant Employees may be entitled under this Agreement and applicable law in respect of the Services.

2.4. The Consultant undertakes to maintain a proper set of accounting books as required by law, to maintain a file with the Israeli Income Tax Authorities and with the Israel National Insurance Institute and to pay all required taxes, and make other compulsory payments in accordance with applicable law. If the Company is required pursuant to applicable law or by a competent authority to provide proof of such payments, then the Consultant shall provide the Company with such proof upon the request of the Company.

5.5. In the event that the Consultant shall be legally required (by formal questioning or, in the written opinion of his legal counsel, by applicable securities laws) to disclose any Proprietary Information, the Consultant shall immediately notify the Company of such request or requirement prior to disclosure so that the Company may seek an appropriate protective order with the reasonable assistance of the Consultant, and/or waive compliance with the terms of this undertaking, at the Company's absolute discretion.

6.5. The Consultant agrees and acknowledges that he will not be entitled, with respect to all of the above, to any monetary consideration or any other consideration except as explicitly set forth in this Agreement, and that the consideration explicitly set forth in this Agreement is in lieu of any rights for compensation that may arise in connection with the Company Inventions under applicable law. The Consultant hereby waives any right to claim royalties or other consideration with respect to any such Company Inventions, including under Section 134 of the Israeli Patents Law - 1967.

The Consultant agrees and declares that, all Proprietary Information of the Company and patents, trademarks, copyrights, designs and other rights in connection therewith shall be the sole property of the Company and its assignees. At all times, both during the engagement by the Company and after the termination thereof, the Consultant will keep in confidence and trust all Proprietary Information using the same degree of care it uses to safeguard its own proprietary information but no less than a reasonable degree of care. In addition, the Consultant will not use or disclose any Proprietary Information or anything relating to it without the prior written consent of the Company except as may be necessary in order to perform the Services.

5.5. In the event that the Consultant shall be legally required (by formal questioning or, in the written opinion of his legal counsel, by applicable securities laws) to disclose any Proprietary Information, the Consultant shall immediately notify the Company of such request or requirement prior to disclosure so that the Company may seek an appropriate protective order with the reasonable assistance of the Consultant, and/or waive compliance with the terms of this undertaking, at the Company's absolute discretion. If such order or waiver is not timely obtained, only such portion of the Proprietary Information as specifically required shall be disclosed. For the avoidance of doubt, any information disclosed pursuant to such event, shall continue to be deemed as Proprietary Information.

5.6. Upon termination of the engagement with the Company, the Consultant will promptly deliver to the Company all documents and materials of any nature pertaining to the Services, and it will not take any documents or materials or copies thereof containing any Proprietary Information. The Consultant further covenants that it will delete all copies of Proprietary Information stored in digital or electronic databases.

6.3. The Consultant acknowledges that the consideration under the Agreement is sufficient consideration for, inter alia, the obligations pursuant to this Section 6 and includes any compensation due for “Service Inventions” under Chapter H of the Israeli Patents Law, 1967.

6.4. The Consultant shall immediately on request by the Company (whether during engagement with the Company or after the termination of such engagement) and at the expense of the Company:

(a) apply or join with the Company in applying for any any Proprietary Information or other protection or registration (“Protection”) for, or in relation to, any Company Inventions;

(b) execute all instruments and do all things necessary for vesting Company Inventions or Protection when obtained and all right, title and interest to and in the same absolutely and as sole beneficial owner in the Company or other person as the Company may nominate;

(c) in the event that the Company is unable for any reason, after reasonable effort, to secure The Consultant signature on any document needed in connection with the actions specified in the preceding paragraph, The Consultant hereby: (i) irrevocably designates and appoints the Company and its duly authorized officers and agents as his agent and attorney in fact, which appointment is coupled with an interest, to act for and in his behalf to execute, verify and file any such documents and to do all other lawfully permitted acts to further the purposes of the preceding paragraph with the same legal force and effect as if executed by him, and (ii) hereby waives and quitclaims to the Company any and all claims, of any nature whatsoever, which he now or may hereafter have for infringement of any Company Inventions assigned hereunder to the Company.

6.5. The Consultant agrees and acknowledges that he will not be entitled, with respect to all of the above, to any monetary consideration or any other consideration except as explicitly set forth in this Agreement, and that the consideration explicitly set forth in this Agreement is in lieu of any rights for compensation that may arise in connection with the Company Inventions under applicable law. The Consultant hereby waives any right to claim royalties or other consideration with respect to any such Company Inventions, including under Section 134 of the Israeli Patents Law - 1967. Consultant further forever waives and agrees never to assert any and all Moral Rights he may have in or with respect to any Company Inventions, even after termination of the engagement hereunder. “Moral Rights” means any right to claim authorship of a Company Invention, any right to object to any distortion or other modification of a Company Invention, and any similar right, existing under the law of any country in the world, or under any treaty

7.3.

In addition, such restrictions are fully compensated for by the Fee and other benefits granted hereunder

7.4. If any one or more of the terms contained in this Section shall for any reason be held to be excessively broad with regard to time, geographic scope or activity, the term shall be construed in a manner to enable it to be enforced to the extent compatible with applicable law.

  • No types

Immutable

  • No surprise

  • Naming is hard
