For purposes of this Agreement, Continuous Service means that Recipients continued service with the Company or its parent or subsidiary as such terms are defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act (each an Affiliate and together Affiliates), whether as an employee, director or consultant, is not interrupted or terminated. The Committee shall have the authority to determine the time or times at which parent or subsidiary status is determined within the foregoing definition of Affiliate. A change in the capacity in which Recipient renders service to the Company or an Affiliate as an employee, consultant, or director, or a change in the entity for which Recipient renders such service, provided that there is no interruption or termination of Recipients service with the Company or an Affiliate, shall not terminate a Recipients Continuous Service. For example, a change in status from an employee of the Company to a consultant of a subsidiary or to a director shall not constitute an interruption of Continuous Service. To the extent permitted by law, the Committee, in its sole discretion, may determine whether Continuous Service shall be considered interrupted in the case of any leave of absence approved by that party, including sick leave, military leave or any other personal leave. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a leave of absence shall be treated as Continuous Service for purposes of vesting in the PSU only to such extent as may be provided in the Companys leave of absence policy, in the written terms of any leave of absence agreement or policy applicable to Recipient, or as otherwise required by law.
