10. I, the undersigned member of Executives’ Global Network (EGN) Singapore, hereby acknowledge, accept and confirm towards EGN and the members hereof that all information acquired or received by me regarding EGN or the other members hereof during meetings and/or other EGN activities shall be considered to be confidential information, which is not to be disclosed or disseminated to or shared with in any way with any non-members or third parties except (a) with the prior written consent from the member who had originally disclosed the confidential information or (b) with the prior written consent of EGN where applicable. The duty and obligation of confidentiality shall survive for a period of five (5) years from the date of any cessation or termination of my membership with EGN, regardless of the reason(s) of cessation or termination thereof.

J. Non-Solicitation and Non-Competition Obligation

11.1 I agree and accept that I shall not in any way solicit or attempt to solicit or directly or indirectly connect or communicate with any existing or potential customer or client of any member or of the member’s Company, except with the prior written consent of the member or of his Company, as the case maybe. I agree that I will not directly or indirectly induce or entice any member to cease or terminate his membership herein for any reason whatsoever.

11.3 The duties and obligations of non-solicitation and non-competition shall survive for a period of five (5) years from the date of any cessation or termination of my membership with EGN, regardless of the reason(s) of cessation or termination thereof.

K. Non-Liability or Waiver of Liability of EGN

12.1 I agree and accept that there is no liability on the part of EGN and I further expressly waive any liability by EGN for the following matters –

12.2. Personal or Work Restrictions or Illness due to Covid-19, Its Variants or Mutants

12.2.1 I agree and accept that COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization in 2020. COVID-19 (which  terms includes its variants or mutants, whether existing or otherwise) is infectious and spreads easily from person-to-person if proper safe management measures (“SMM”) are not taken. People can be infected and show no symptoms and thus can still spread the disease. There is no known treatment, cure though various vaccines are now available for COVID-19. It is common knowledge, with empirical evidence that COVID-19 can cause serious or even potentially life-threatening illness and even death. 

12.2.2 Subject to proper prevailing mandatory SMM being taken by EGN, however EGN cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while engaging EGN’s services or utilising any premises for EGN meetings or events. Where the premises are owned, managed or occupied by a third party, EGN shall take reasonable steps to ensure that the third party has complied with prevailing mandatory SMM, although EGN will not be liable for any breach of SMM by the third party if EGN did not reasonably know nor could EGN have reasonably known of any such breach by the third party.

12.2.3 Assumption of Risk: I have read and clearly understood the above notice regarding COVID-19. I hereby voluntarily choose to accept that there is always a risk of contracting COVID-19 for myself while utilising EGN’s services or premises or while interacting with other members during EGN events or EGN-related events, even if EGN has reasonably complied with all prevailing mandatory SMM. These services and EGN interactions and events are of such an important value to me that I accept the risk of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 (even where prevailing mandatory SMM are in place) in order to utilize EGN’s services and premises in person, instead of arranging for an alternative method of enjoying the same services virtually (e.g. via videoconference) where  such alternative method is available, whether free, at extra cost or otherwise.

12.2.4 I shall also ensure that I fully comply with all prevailing mandatory SMM measures at all times and shall comply with all precautionary measures and guidelines that EGN Singapore, its partners or affiliates may, in their sole discretion, impose or require from time to time for any event, activity or interaction.

12.2.5 Waiver of Liability: I hereby unconditionally waive my right to bring any claim or suit against EGN Singapore or its owners, shareholders, officers, directors, managers, officials, trustees, agents, employees, or any other representatives or agents, arising from or in connection with any or potential exposure, infection, and/or spread of COVID-19 due to my use of EGN’s services and premises at any time. I clearly and fully appreciate, accept and understand that this waiver of liability means I give up any right that I may have to bring any claim or suit against EGN Singapore, whether for any personal injury, disease, death, personal, business or property loss, or for any other loss whatsoever, including but not limited to loss arising from any negligence and I thus fully waive any right or claim I may have to seek against EGN Singapore any damages, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen. 

12.3 Acting Professionally At All Times and Dealings Between Members

12.3.1 I am aware and fully accept that EGN is a firm and unflinching supporter of diversity and inclusion. I agree to act professionally, with utmost integrity and honesty in all my dealings, interactions and discussions with EGN, its members or any third party (whether from Singapore or elsewhere), insofar as my dealings, interactions and discussions arise out of my membership herein. I shall also observe high personal and professional standards so as to reflect the international image, reputation and standing of EGN Singapore and EGN. For clarity and avoidance of doubt, behaviour that is not professional and not acceptable includes but is not limited to misogyny, religious or cultural racism, gender, age or political discrimination, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and any socially-unacceptable prejudice, bias, discrimination or differentiation.   

12.3.2 I further agree and accept that EGN Singapore shall not be liable in any way for any claim, loss or damages incurred as a result of any of my dealings, interactions and discussions with any EGN member or relevant any third party at any time.

L. Consent to Photographic, Audio and Video Recording and Media Release

13.1 By attending the event, I agree and consent to the EGN Singapore’s exclusive and perpetual, irrevocable and royalty-free use of any of my photographs, videos, voice, likeness or images in (a) any print, digital or online pre- or post-event publicity, marketing, media posts or broadcasts of any EGN event to be attended or actually attended by me (whether in person physically, via video-conferencing, live or recorded events, seminars, business group discussions, webinars, podcasts, press conferences, media releases or online in any form) and (b) in subsequent productions drawn from official photographic, video, audio or digital recordings or authorised reproductions of any such EGN events, in any form, format or storage whatsoever, whether physical, online or digital. 

13.2 The said photographs and recordings may be modified or reproduced wholly or partially in EGN ‘s sole discretion, for the purposes of being published or broadcasted in the official EGN Singapore’s and its affiliates’ publications, marketing or publicity materials, including the EGN Singapore’s and affiliates’ websites, any social media, online or digital platform. All photographs, recordings, articles, quotes, films, audio or video and/or any reproductions of the same in any form or format whatsoever, are perpetually and irrevocably the sole and exclusive property of EGN Singapore. EGN Singapore may in its sole discretion, wholly or partially transfer or assign the rights herein, provided the transferee or assignee agrees to use the samel solely for the purposes herein.

13.3 For clarity, EGN Singapore, its affiliates, employees, representatives and agents are fully and perpetually released from any and all claims, demands, costs, damages or liability whatsoever (whether in law, contract, tort or equity) that may arise from EGN’s or its affiliates use of these photographs, recordings, articles, quotes, films, audio or video and/or any reproductions of same in any form, as described above, whether the same arises out of me being interviewed, recorded, photographed, videotaped or filmed in any form whatsoever.

M. Choice of Law and Jurisdiction

14. I understand and agree that the laws of Singapore will apply to this Agreement and that any difference or dispute herein will be referred to the Courts of Singapore for mediation, adjudication, litigation or determination. 

N. Complete Agreement

15.
