3.           Independent Contractor.  Advisor’s relationship with the Company will be that of an independent contractor and not that of an employee.  Advisor will have no authority to enter into contracts that bind the Company or create obligations on the part of the Company without the prior written authorization of the Company.

(c)           Exceptions.  Notwithstanding the above, Advisor shall not have liability to the Company or any of its subsidiaries with regard to any Confidential Information of the Company which Advisor can prove (i) is disclosed with the prior written approval of the Company, or (ii) is disclosed pursuant to the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body; provided, however, that Advisor shall provide prompt notice of such court order or requirement to the Company to enable the Company or its appropriate subsidiary to seek a protective order or otherwise prevent or restrict such disclosure.
 
5.           No Duplication; Return of Materials.  Advisor agrees, except as otherwise expressly authorized by the Company, not to make any copies or duplicates of any the Company’s Confidential Information.  Any materials or documents that have been furnished by the Company to Advisor in connection with the Services shall be promptly returned by Advisor to the Company, accompanied by all copies of such documentation, within ten days after (a) the Services have been concluded or (b) the written request of the Company.
 
6.           No Rights Granted.  Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as granting any rights under any patent, copyright or other intellectual property right of the Company, nor shall this Agreement grant Advisor any rights in or to the Company’s Confidential Information, except the limited right to use the Confidential Information in connection with the Services.
 
7.           Assignment of Inventions.  To the extent that, in the course of performing the Services, Advisor jointly or solely conceives, develops, or reduces to practice any inventions, original works of authorship, developments, concepts, know-how, improvements or trade secrets, whether or not patentable or registrable under copyright or similar laws, Advisor hereby agrees to assign all rights, titles and interest to such inventions to the Company.
 
8.           Duty to Assist.  As requested by the Company, Advisor shall take all steps reasonably necessary to assist the Company in obtaining and enforcing in its own name any patent, copyright or other protection which the Company elects to obtain or enforce for its inventions, original works of authorship, developments, concepts, know-how, improvements and trade secrets.  Advisor’s obligation to assist the Company in obtaining and enforcing patents, copyrights and other protections shall continue beyond the termination of Advisor’s relationship with the Company, but the Company shall compensate Advisor at a reasonable rate after the termination of such relationship for time actually spent at the Company’s request providing such assistance.
 
9.           Miscellaneous.  Any term of these Terms and Conditions may be amended or waived only with the written consent of the parties.  The Advisor Agreement and these Terms and Conditions constitute the sole agreement of the parties and supersede all oral negotiations and prior writings with respect to the subject matter hereof.  The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to the principles of conflict of laws.
