NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the adequacy and receipt of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

 

  1. Engagement. The Company hereby engages Celebrity as an independent contractor of the Company, and Celebrity hereby accepts such engagement, to render such services as the Company may designate to Celebrity from time to time (collectively, the “Services”), including, without limitation: (a) using the Platform to participate in online gaming interactions with its users (individually and/or collectively, as the context may require, “User Interactions”); (b) recruiting suitable celebrities and other publicly recognized personalities who agree to use the Platform to participate in User Interactions (individually and/or collectively, as the context may require, “Celebrity Participants”).

 

  1. Services; Scope of Engagement.

 

  • Time Commitment. Celebrity shall devote to the Business such amount of Celebrity’s energies, interest, abilities and productive time as is necessary to perform the Services; provided, however, that the Services shall not be exclusive to the Company.

 

  • The Company’s Obligation. The Company shall have fully discharged its obligations pursuant to this Agreement upon the payment in full to Celebrity of the compensation set forth in Section 4 of this Agreement.

 

  • Company’s Agreements Not to Compete. Celebrity agrees to comply with any and all restrictions on competitive activity by the Company and its employees and/or contractors contained in any agreement to which the Company is a signatory during the term of any such agreement.

 

  • Independent Contractor. CELEBRITY understands and acknowledges that CELEBRITY is an independent contractor of the Company, as such term is used in the United States tax laws, and that, EXCEPT AND TO THE EXTENT EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT, nothing contained HEREin shall be deemed to establish, or BE construed as establishing, any partnership, joint venture or franchise or employer-employee relationship by and between the Company and CELEBRITY.  CELEBRITY warrants that HE will pay all required taxes on the fees or other compensation that the Company pays to HIM under this Agreement and file any applicable tax returns or other documents in connection therewith.

 

  • Instructions and Directions; Terms and Conditions. Celebrity will promptly and faithfully comply with all reasonable instructions, directions, requests, rules and regulations made or issued by the Company, including, without limitation, the Company’s standard terms and conditions with respect to the use of the Platform, as promulgated, modified and/or appended by the Company from time to time upon notice to Celebrity (collectively, the “Terms and Conditions”).  Celebrity understands and acknowledges that any violation by Celebrity of any of the Terms and Conditions shall entitle the Company to terminate this Agreement.  In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between or among the provisions of this Agreement and those contained in the Terms and Conditions, the provisions of this Agreement shall govern and control in each instance.

 

  1. Term. The term (the “Term”) of term of Celebrity’s engagement by the Company pursuant to this Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and shall continue until this Agreement is terminated in accordance with the provisions of Section 9 hereof (the “Term”).  In the event that Celebrity has commenced but not yet completed specific services at the end of the Term, Celebrity agrees to complete such specific services (but only such specific services) and the Company agrees to pay Celebrity’s compensation set forth herein under such circumstances.

 

  1. Payment for the Services.

 

  • Payments Generally. Except and to the extent expressly otherwise provided herein, any and all payments made by the Company to Celebrity in consideration of the Services shall be derived from the Net Revenues of the Business.  For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Net Revenues” means, for any period, the amount of the gross revenues earned, generated or received by the Business from public users of the Platform; minus certain operating and/or administrative expenses of the Business in an amount equal to four and one-half percent (4.5%) of such gross revenues (the “Company Expenses”).  The Company may, from time to time and upon written notice to Celebrity, adjust the percentage of gross revenues comprising Company Expenses as and when it deems necessary or desirable in its commercially reasonable judgment.

 

  • Payments for Celebrity’s User Interactions. Subject to adjustment based on the amounts of any Charitable Contributions (as hereinafter defined), for each User Interaction personally conducted by Celebrity, the Company shall pay to Celebrity an amount equal to seventy percent (70%) of the Net Revenues attributable to such User Interaction (each, a “User Interaction Payment”).  Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained herein: (i) any and all User Interaction Payments due and payable to Celebrity shall be reduced by the portion(s) thereof which Celebrity, upon written notice in each instance, instructs the Company to donate to an organization or entity exempt from federal income tax pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, designated by Celebrity and approved by the Company in its sole discretion (individually and/or collectively, as the context may require, “Charitable Contributions”); and (ii) in lieu of his acceptance of any User Interaction Payment, Celebrity may, upon written notice to the Company in each instance, instruct the Company to make a Charitable Contribution in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the Net Revenues attributable to the applicable User Interaction (including the Net Revenues allocable to the Company therefor) for which such User Interaction Payment otherwise would be payable.

 

  • Payments for Celebrity Participants’ User Interactions. Provided, that this Agreement remains in full force and effect and has not been terminated pursuant to Section 9(b) hereof, for each User Interaction conducted by one or more Celebrity Participants referred by Celebrity to the Company (“Celebrity Referral”) who enters into a written agreement memorializing the terms and conditions of such Celebrity Participant’s engagement by the Company and conducts a User Interaction, the Company shall pay to Celebrity an amount equal to five percent (5%) of the Net Revenues attributable to such User Interactions that occur within 1 year of the first Celebrity Referral for that Celebrity Participant  (each a “Celebrity User Interaction Payment”).

 

  • Timing of Payments. Subject to the provisions of the Terms and Conditions, and except and to the extent expressly otherwise provided herein, the Company shall pay to Celebrity all amounts due to Celebrity on account of the Services accrued thereafter within thirty (30) days following receipt by the Company of payment by the user for the applicable User Interaction.

 

  • Post-Expiration Payments. Each of the Company and Celebrity hereby acknowledges that the Company may receive money attributable to the Services following the expiration of the Term.  Accordingly, any amounts paid to Celebrity pursuant to Section 4 above shall constitute payment for Services rendered by Celebrity during the Term, even though such payments may be made following the expiration of the Term, and notwithstanding that Celebrity may not be performing Services for the Company at the time that any such payment is made.

 

  1. Deductions from Payments.

 

  • No Withholdings. The Company shall not be responsible for the payment of any payroll or other withholdings, taxes, penalties, assessments, interest or similar amounts (collectively, “Withholdings”) required by any federal, state or local government, agency or authority on the amounts paid to Celebrity pursuant to this Agreement.  The payment of Withholdings, if any, shall be the sole obligation of Celebrity.  If, for any reason and at any time, any claim is made against the Company for Withholdings of any kind on any amounts received by Celebrity pursuant to this Agreement, Celebrity shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and expenses) from and against any and all such claims, including any claims for penalties or interest.

 

  • Offsets. The Company may offset against any monies now or hereafter payable to Celebrity the amount of any fixed and ascertained liabilities of Celebrity to the Company.

 

  • Legal Proceedings. In the event that the Company is directed, by virtue of the service of any garnishment, levy, execution or judicial order, to apply any amounts payable pursuant to this Agreement to any person, corporation or other entity or judicial or governmental officer, the Company shall have the right to pay any such amounts in accordance with such directions, and the Company’s obligations to Celebrity shall be discharged to the extent of such payments.  If, because of conflicting claims to amounts payable pursuant to this Agreement, the Company becomes a party to any judicial proceeding affecting the payment or ownership of such amounts, Celebrity shall reimburse the Company for all costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection therewith.

 

  1. Business Expenses. Unless and to the extent as may otherwise be agreed to by the Company, Celebrity shall not be entitled to receive reimbursement for any business expenses incurred in connection with his performance of the Services, including, without limitation, travel and transportation expenses, lodging and meals and entertainment expenses.

  • Celebrity hereby agrees to execute and deliver such documents, instruments and/or agreements as may be requested by the Company from time to time to obtain, register, perfect, maintain, enforce and/or further evidence the Company’s Rights, if any, in, to and under the Works, if and when so requested by the Company.

 

  • In the event that the Company desires to secure further documents, instruments and/or agreements covering, quitclaiming or assigning all or any of the Rights in, to and under the Works, Celebrity agrees to execute and deliver the same to the Company at any time, and from time to time, upon the Company’s request therefor, in such form and substance as may be delivered to Celebrity by the Company. The failure by Celebrity to execute and deliver such further documents, instruments and/or agreements as are required pursuant to Section 8(a)(i) above or this Section 8(a)(ii) shall not prejudice, limit or otherwise affect any of the Company’s Rights in, to and under the Works.

 

  • Celebrity hereby appoints the Company as attorney-in-fact for Celebrity to execute, in the name and on behalf of Celebrity, such documents, instruments and/or agreements referenced in Sections 8(a)(i) and 8(a)(ii) hereof as may be prepared by the Company and delivered to Celebrity, any of which documents, instruments and/or agreements Celebrity fails to execute and return to the Company within five (5) business days following the submission thereof.

  • Definition of “Works”.

  • Confidentiality; Non-Disclosure.

 

  • Celebrity shall not, without the prior written consent of the Company in each instance, disclose, divulge, publish to others or employ to his own advantage, other than as is expressly provided herein, any Confidential Information (as such term is hereinafter defined) or any other proprietary or confidential information disclosed to Celebrity in connection with this Agreement.

 

  • Celebrity shall not disclose any Confidential Information (as such term is hereinafter defined) in any manner whatsoever, except as compelled by applicable law, and shall hold and maintain said information in his strictest confidence. Celebrity hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates from and against any and all losses, damages, claims, expenses and attorneys’ fees incurred or suffered thereby as a result of any breach by Celebrity of the provisions of this Section 8(e).

 

  • Celebrity hereby acknowledges and agrees that any disclosure or misappropriation of any Confidential Information (as such term is hereinafter defined) in violation of this Agreement will cause irreparable damage, the amount of which damage may be difficult to ascertain, and Celebrity therefore agrees that the Company shall have the right to apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for specific performance and/or an order restraining and enjoining any such further disclosure or breach and for such other relief as such court shall deem appropriate. Such right shall be in addition to the remedies otherwise available to the Company pursuant to this Agreement, at law, in equity or otherwise.  Celebrity expressly waives the defense that a remedy in damages will be adequate and any requirement in an action for specific performance or injunction for the posting of a bond.

 

  • As used in this Agreement, the term “Confidential Information” shall mean and include: (A) all information or material that has or could have commercial value or other utility in the Business or prospective business of the Company or its subsidiaries or affiliates; and (B) all information, the unauthorized dissemination of which could be detrimental to the interests of the Company or its subsidiaries or affiliates, irrespective of whether such information is identified as Confidential Information. By way of example, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the term “Confidential Information” includes, but is not limited to, any and all information of the following or similar nature, whether or not reduced to writing: confidential or proprietary scientific or technical information or data (including computer software and models); trade secrets; know-how; customer lists and pricing information; and any and all other information relating to customers, distributor and supplier lists, customer development programs, strategic alliances, costs, marketing, promotion, sales activity, financing methods and accounting, products, policies, practices, research, compilations of information, business plans or the business affairs of the Company generally or of any affiliate or subsidiary of the Company and any other information or procedures that are treated as or designated secret or confidential by the Company or by its directors, officers, customers or potential customers.  For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Confidential Information” shall not include any information that Celebrity can demonstrate: (1) was in his possession prior to such information being furnished thereto under the terms of this Agreement; provided, that the source of such information was bound by a confidentiality agreement with Celebrity or other continuing legal or fiduciary confidentiality obligation; (2) is now, or hereafter becomes, through no act or failure to act on the part of either party to this Agreement, generally known to the public; (3) is rightfully obtained from any person or entity (other than the parties hereto), without breach of any obligation; or (4) is independently developed without any use of, or reference to, any Confidential Information.

 

  • Non-Competition. Except and to the extent as may expressly be agreed otherwise by the Company in a written amendment to this Agreement signed by the Company and Celebrity, during the Term, and for a period of twenty-four (24) months following the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, Celebrity will neither consult on, nor engage in, any business or activity that competes with the Business or with the business of any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company in the State of New York.  In addition, during the Term, and for a period of twenty-four (24) months following the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, Celebrity shall not, directly or indirectly, whether as an employer, consultant, contractor, agent, officer, principal, partner, stockholder, director or any other individual or representative capacity, engage or participate in any business that competes with the Business or with the business of any subsidiary or affiliate of the Company in the State of New York.  It is further acknowledged and agreed that any breach by Celebrity of this Section 8(f) shall cause irreparable damage to the Company, which damage may not be fully redressed by the payment of damages thereto.  Accordingly, the Company shall be entitled, in addition to any other right or remedy it may have under this Agreement, at law, in equity or otherwise, to seek an injunction in any jurisdiction, without the posting of any bond or other security, enjoining or restraining any such violation of the provisions of this Section 8(f).  The obligations of Celebrity pursuant to this Section 8(f) shall survive the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.

 

  • Non-Solicitation. Except and to the extent as may expressly be agreed otherwise by the Company in a written amendment to this Agreement signed by the Company and Celebrity, Celebrity shall not, for a period of twenty-four (24) months following the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, either directly or indirectly, on his or for any other individual or entity, solicit, employ, endeavor to entice away from the Company or use the services of the Company or any of its agents, employees or contractors.  In the event of any breach by Celebrity of this Section 8(g), Celebrity shall pay to the Company an amount equal to the aggregate remuneration paid by the Company to that member of the Company’s staff for the year immediately prior to the date on which Celebrity employed or used the services of that member of the Company’s staff.
