|7.||TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT; EFFECT OF TERMINATION|
(a) Executives employment hereunder may be terminated by the Company at any time:
(i) upon the determination that Executives performance of his duties has not been fully satisfactory for any reason which would not constitute justifiable cause (as hereinafter defined) or for other business reasons necessitating termination which do not constitute justifiable cause, in either case upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to Executive; or
(ii) upon the determination that there is justifiable cause (as hereinafter defined) for such termination.
(b) Executives employment shall terminate upon:
(i) the death of Executive;
(ii) the total disability of Executive (as hereinafter defined in Subsection (c) herein) pursuant to Subsection (h) hereof; or
(iii) Executives resignation of employment.
(c) For the purposes of this Agreement, the term total disability shall mean Executive is physically or mentally incapacitated so as to render Executive incapable of performing the essentials of Executives job, even with reasonable accommodation, as reasonably determined by the Company, which determination shall be final and binding.
(d) For the purposes hereof, the term justifiable cause shall mean: any failure or refusal to perform any of the duties pursuant to this Agreement or any breach of this Agreement by the Executive; Executives breach of any material written policies, rules or regulations which have been adopted by the Company; Executives repeated failure to perform his duties in a satisfactory manner; Executives performance of any act or his failure to act, as to which if
Executive were prosecuted and convicted, a crime or offense involving money or property of the Company or its subsidiaries or affiliates, or a crime or offense constituting a felony in the jurisdiction involved, would have occurred; any unauthorized disclosure by Executive to any person, firm or corporation of any confidential information or trade secret of the Company or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates; any attempt by Executive to secure any personal profit in connection with the business of the Company or any of its subsidiaries and affiliates; or the engaging by Executive in any business other than the business of the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates which interferes with the performance of his duties hereunder. Upon termination of Executives employment for justifiable cause, this Agreement shall terminate immediately and Executive shall not be entitled to any amounts or benefits hereunder other than such portion of Executives annual base salary and reimbursement of expenses pursuant to Section 5 hereof as have been accrued through the date of his termination of employment.
(e) If the Company terminates this Agreement without justifiable cause as provided in Subsection 7 (a)(i) the Company shall pay Executive his then current base salary for five months after the effectiveness of such termination, payable in equal payments in accordance with the Companys customary payroll practices. However, if Executive is employed or retained, as an employee, independent contractor, consultant or in any other capacity or if he is offered another position by the Company at a comparable salary (New Employment) prior to or during the time he receives payment under this Subsection or Subsection 3 (b), the Company is entitled to a credit for all sums paid or earned by Executive during this period of time or which he could have earned had he accepted the comparable position by the Company. The Executive must make a good faith effort to find New Employment and mitigate the amount of money to be paid by the Company to Executive under this Subsection or Subsection 3(b). Executive also agrees to immediately notify the Company if and when he is offered another position and/or accepts another position. The Company will pay any amount due and owing in accordance with the payment schedule in 3(a), until paid in full. Any payment pursuant to this paragraph 7(e) is contingent upon Executives execution of a general release and separation agreement in a form acceptable to the Company and will be in lieu of payments to which Executive might have been entitled under any other severance plan of the Company.
(f) If Executive shall die during the term of his employment hereunder, this Agreement shall terminate immediately. In such event, the estate of Executive shall thereupon be entitled to receive such portion of Executives base annual salary and reimbursement of expenses pursuant to Section 4 as have been accrued through the date of his death.
(g) Upon Executives total disability, the Company shall have the right to terminate Executives employment. Any termination pursuant to this Subsection (g) shall be effective on the earlier of (i) the date 30 days after which Executive shall have received written notice of the Companys election to terminate or (ii) the date he begins to receive long-term disability insurance benefits under the policy provided by the Company pursuant to Section 5 hereof.
(h) Upon the resignation of Executive in any capacity, that resignation will be deemed to be a resignation from all offices and positions that Executive holds with respect to the Company and any of its subsidiaries and affiliates. In the event of Executives resignation, he shall be entitled only to receive such portion of his annual base salary and reimbursement of expenses pursuant to Section 4 as have been accrued through the date of his resignation.
(i) Change of Control. In the event the Executives employment with the Company is terminated by the Company during the Term without justifiable cause within twelve months following a Change of Control of the Company occurring during the Term then, in such event, the Company shall pay Executive an amount equal to twelve (12) months of base annual salary in effect at the time of the termination, which amount will be subject to mitigation in accordance with Section 7(e) above. For the purposes of the foregoing, Change of Control shall have the meaning set forth in the Companys 2006 Incentive Stock Option Plan (without regard to any subsequent amendments thereto). Any payment pursuant to this paragraph 7(i) is contingent upon Executives execution of a general release and separation agreement in a form acceptable to the Company and will be in lieu of payments to which Executive might have been entitled under paragraph 7(e) of this Agreement or under any other severance plan of the Company

(e) Executive represents and warrants that he has never been accused of any impropriety in connection with any employment;
Any breach of any of the above representations and warranties is justifiable cause for termination under Section 7(d) of this Agreement.

(c) Executive acknowledges that the Company conducts business throughout the world, that Executives duties and responsibilities on behalf of the Company are of a worldwide nature, that its sales and marketing prospects are for continued expansion throughout the world and therefore, the territorial and time limitations set forth in this Section 9 are reasonable and properly required for the adequate protection of the business of the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates. In the event any such territorial or time limitation is deemed to be unreasonable by a court of competent jurisdiction, Executive agrees to the reduction of the territorial or time limitation to the area or period which such court shall deem reasonable.
(d) The existence of any non-material claim or cause of action (a non-material claim or cause of action is defined as a claim or cause of action which results from something other than a material breach of the terms and provisions of this Agreement by the Company) by Executive against the Company or any subsidiary or affiliate shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement by the Company or any subsidiary or affiliate of the foregoing restrictive covenants, but such claim or cause of action shall be litigated separately.
