All technical or business information, in whatever medium or format, including but not limited to, data, financial information, specifications, drawings, records, reports, proposals, software and related documentation, inventions, concepts, research or other information (collectively "Information"), originated or prepared by or for Provider (either solely or jointly with others) in contemplation of, or in the course of, or as a result of, Services performed hereunder, shall be promptly furnished to Mosaic. All such Information shall become the exclusive property of Mosaic and shall be deemed to be works for hire, except for software, training materials and other documents furnished by Provider, prepared prior to the commencement of this Agreement and not for Mosaic shall remain the property of Provider.

All such Information shall be deemed "Confidential Information" pursuant to Section 11 herein.
Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement, Provider shall deliver all copies of the Information to Mosaic or otherwise destroy or delete such materials.
This Agreement and the rights granted hereunder may not be assigned by Provider without the express written consent of Mosaic, except that Mosaic may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement to a successor to substantially all of its assets and business, or to the successor of the assignor as a result of a statutory merger or consolidation. Provider may assign its rights and obligations under this agreement to a special purpose entity so long as Provider remains solely responsible for performing the Services contemplated under this Agreement or SOW.
Indemnification; Limitation of Damages and Liability.
Provider agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Mosaic and its respective affiliated entities, successors, assigns, and all officers, directors, employees and agents of any of the foregoing ("Mosaic Indemnitees") from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including legal fees and reasonable costs of investigations) incurred by any Mosaic Indemnitee as a result of or arising out of (a) any negligent or willful acts or omissions of Provider; (b) any third party claim that the Services, or any part thereof, infringe on a patent or copyright or misappropriation of a trade secret; or (c) any breach by Provider of the provisions of this Agreement.
Company agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Provider and its respective affiliated entities (“Provider Indemnities”) from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including legal fees and reasonable costs of investigations) incurred by any Provider Indemnitee as a result of or arising out of (a) any negligent or willful acts or omissions of Company; or (b) any breach by Mosaic of the provisions of this Agreement.


Prior to the performance of Services under a SOW, Provider shall secure and maintain Automobile Liability insurance covering all automotive equipment used in the performance of the Services, with limits of not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence for bodily injury and property damage combined. A certificate of insurance shall be made available to Mosaic upon its request.
Provider understands that, during the course of its engagement by Mosaic, Provider may be exposed to trade secrets and confidential and proprietary information, of or about Mosaic and its operations, including but not limited to information about its plans, projects, research, records, current and prospective members, sponsors, donors, beneficiaries, partners, agents, representatives, clients, current and prospective suppliers, contracts, services, systems, consumers, or contractors (collectively “Confidential Information”) disclosed either directly or indirectly, intentionally or otherwise, and irrespective of its nature (such as products, samples, data, prototypes, diagrams, sketches, plans, photographs, formulas, studies, reports, specifications), its media (such as written, magnetic, electronic) and its means of communication (such as direct delivery, discussions, visual or oral presentations, long distance transmission), and shall include without limitation any other information Provider generally observes concerning Mosaic or its affiliates with respect to the Services. Confidential Information may also include, by way of example but without limitation, business information, technical information, financial information, products, specifications, formulae, equipment, business strategies, financial information, marketing information, customer lists, know-how, drawings, pricing information, trade secrets, inventions, ideas, and other information, or its potential use, that is owned by or in possession of Mosaic or its affiliates.
Throughout the term of this Agreement and thereafter, Provider shall hold all Confidential Information in the strictest confidence and take all reasonable precautions to prevent its disclosure to any unauthorized person. Confidential Information will not include that which: (i) is in the public domain prior to disclosure by Mosaic or its affiliates to Provider; (ii) becomes part of the public domain, by publication or otherwise, through no unauthorized act or omission on the party of Provider; or (iii) is lawfully in Provider’s possession prior to disclosure by Mosaic or its affiliates.
Dissemination of Confidential Information will be limited to employees or agents of Provider or Company that are providing or assisting with the Services, and even then only to the extent necessary and essential. Provider shall be responsible for obtaining any and all legal commitments to maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information from such third parties who may be permitted access to such Confidential Information.

Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, nothing in this Agreement prohibits Provider or its employees, agents or representatives from reporting to any governmental authority information concerning possible violations of law or regulation. Provider and its employees, agents and representatives may disclose Confidential Information to a government official or to an attorney and use it in court proceedings without fear of prosecution or liability, provided such


person files any documents containing Confidential Information under seal and does not disclose the Confidential Information except pursuant to court order.

Provider will not disclose Confidential Information to any unauthorized party without prior express written consent of Mosaic and unless required by law or court order. If Provider is required by law or court order to disclose Confidential Information, Provider will provide Mosaic prompt written notice of such requirement so that an appropriate protective order or other relief may be sought and Provider shall cooperate with Mosaic and its affiliates to obtain said protective order or other remedy. The obligations imposed by this Section 11, including but not limited to non-disclosure and non-use, however, will endure so long as the Confidential Information does not become part of the public domain.

Confidential Information will be used only in connection with the Services; no other use of Confidential Information will be made by Provider, it being recognized that Mosaic has reserved all rights to Confidential Information not expressly granted herein. All documents containing Confidential Information and provided by Mosaic will remain the property of Mosaic, and all such documents, and copies thereof, will be returned or destroyed upon the request of Mosaic. Documents prepared by Provider using Confidential Information, or derived therefrom, will be destroyed upon request of Mosaic, confirmation of which will be provided in writing.

Any intellectual property conceived or developed in connection with the provision of Services under this Agreement based upon or arising from Confidential Information will be solely owned by Mosaic or its affiliates. Except as expressly provided herein, no license or right is granted hereby to Provider, by implication or otherwise, with respect to or under any patent application, patent, claims of patent or proprietary rights of Mosaic or its affiliates.

Provider acknowledges a breach of this Section 11 would cause irreparable harm to Mosaic, which harm could not be adequately compensated for by damages. Accordingly, in the event of such breach, Provider acknowledges and agrees that Mosaic will be entitled, in its discretion and in addition to any remedies which may be available to it at law, to injunctive or equitable relief against Provider (or its agents).

12.    Business Conduct Standards Compliance.
Provider agrees to conduct himself at all times in a lawful, ethical manner, and agrees to abide by Mosaic’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (“Code) in all respects as if he were a Mosaic employee subject to the Code. A copy of the Code can be found at Mosaic’s public website.
Safety Compliance.
Reasonable access granted by Mosaic to Provider will be at Provider’s sole risk. Provider shall comply with all applicable Occupational Safety and Health Act (“OSHA”) laws and regulations, applicable rules and regulations of the Mine Safety and Health Administration (including the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act, as amended (“MSHA”) and/or such other statutes, standards or regulations as are or may become applicable. Mosaic requires all individuals with official business at a Mosaic facility to comply with a limited set of operational guidelines. These operational guidelines will be provided to Provider by Mosaic prior to Provider entering Mosaic facilities as necessary. Provider agrees to comply with all site specific training for chemical and/


or mineral facilities. Prior to beginning of any Services at a Mosaic facility other than Streamsong Resort, Provider agrees to complete any required OSHA/MSHA training.
Provider acknowledges that there are certain natural and man-made hazards that may exist on or nearby the Mosaic facility where it may provide Services, including without limitation unstable soil conditions, sediment, rocks, minerals, ponds, lakes, waterways, ditches, berms, wildlife and vegetation. Provider also acknowledges that Mosaic’s facilities may be part of or adjacent to certain past, present and future mining activities, operations, and facilities. Provider agrees that it is incumbent upon Provider to recognize and understand whether Provider’s activities under this Agreement are located nearby mining activities, operations and facilities.
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary and without prejudice to any other remedy Mosaic may have, a violation of or failure to enforce all applicable federal, state and local safety related laws, codes, ordinances, rules and regulations by Provider or any Provider employee or agent is cause for (1) immediate removal of Provider from Mosaic’s facility(s) and restrictions on future entry, and (2) immediate termination of this Agreement with no further obligation or liability of Mosaic to Provider. Provider recognizes that it may be subject to the jurisdiction, rules and regulations of MSHA. Provider agrees to act in ways which promote its own safety and the safety of its agents, employees, contractors, invitees, representatives and the public, and to abide by Provider’s own safety guidelines.
Equal Opportunity Employer.
To the extent applicable, Provider shall abide by the requirements of 41 CFR 60-1.4(a), 60-300.5(a) and 60-741.5(a). These regulations prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals based on their status as protected veteran or individuals with disabilities, and prohibit discrimination against all individuals based on their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin. Moreover, these regulations require that covered prime contractors and subcontractors take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status or disabilities. To the extent applicable, the employee notice requirements set forth in 29 C.F.R. Part 471, Appendix A to Subpart A, are hereby incorporated by reference into this Agreement.
Drugs and Alcohol.
Provider expressly agrees to never undertake performance of the Services when impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Mosaic reserves the right to utilize the management and/or consulting services of third parties in connection with the operation, development and assessment of the Resort.
Provider agrees not to make any statements, verbally or in writing, that disparage or subvert the Company or any of its affiliated entities, or its or their products, services, employees, finances, operations, or any aspect of the respective businesses, or former officers, executives, directors, shareholders, employees, managers or agents. Provider further agrees not to engage in, or induce or encourage others to engage in, any conduct injurious to the reputation or interest of the Company


or its affiliated entities. Nothing herein shall prevent Provider from providing truthful testimony under oath or to a government agency or as otherwise required by law.
Any demand, notice or other communication (collectively, "Notice") required or permitted by this Agreement will be valid only if it is in writing and either delivered personally or sent by facsimile, (with telephone confirmation of receipt), or electronic communication in portable document format (.pdf), commercial courier or first class, postage prepaid, United States mail to the intended recipient at the address set forth below:
