Fidelity shall have no liability to the Lender or the Account Owner for any act or omission by Fidelity or any of its employees or representatives, taken or omitted in accordance with such Collateral Instructions. Fidelity shall have no duty to inquire or determine whether the Account Owner's obligations to the Lender are in default or whether the Lender is entitled, under the Pledge Agreement or any separate agreement between the Account Owner and the Lender, to give any such instructions. Fidelity may rely conclusively on, and will be protected in acting upon, any Collateral Instructions which Fidelity believes to be genuine and properly presented and will have no responsibility to inquire into the authority, enforceability or any other aspect of any document's execution or the propriety or truth of its provisions. Upon Fidelity's request, the Lender shall provide in writing to Fidelity a list of persons authorized to act on behalf of the Lender with respect to the Account and the other Collateral. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Fidelity shall have no obligation to request or require proof of authority of any person which Fidelity reasonably believes to be acting on behalf of the Lender with respect to the Account and the other Collateral and shall be fully protected and indemnified by the Lender and the Account Owner from any liability whatsoever which Fidelity may incur as a consequence of acting upon the Collateral Instructions of any Person which it reasonably believes to be an authorized person of the Lender.

7. Trading and Monitoring.

The Lender and the Account Owner acknowledge and agree that Fidelity has no obligation to monitor the market value of the Collateral or the Account for the benefit of the Lender. Such monitoring is the sole responsibility of the Lender and the Account Owner.

8. Fidelity's Claims Against Collateral.

Unless Fidelity has obtained the Lender's prior written consent, Fidelity agrees not to exercise any right of setoff, or to assert any security interest or other lien, encumbrance, claim, or right that Fidelity may at any time have against or in the Account or any of the Collateral except as provided in this paragraph 8. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, both the Lender and the Account Owner acknowledge and agree that Fidelity may from time to time debit the Account for, or in connection with, this Control Agreement and the Fidelity Brokerage Account Customer Agreement as said Agreements are amended from time to time, and that the Lender has no right to sums deducted by Fidelity. Fidelity may from time to time deduct from the Account and any Collateral (a) any of Fidelity's charges in maintaining the Account and the other Collateral, (b) payment or fees owed to Fidelity or any of its affiliates in connection with open trade commitments or any other transactions relating to any assets credited to or held in the Account, and (c) negotiable instruments (i.e., checks and drafts) received by Fidelity

or the Account Owner, the proceeds or amounts of which are deposited into or credited to the Account but which negotiable instruments are later returned to Fidelity or its affiliates as uncollectible, to the extent that the Account Owner has not separately paid or reimbursed Fidelity therefore.

9. No Liability of Fidelity.

This Control Agreement does not create any obligation of Fidelity except for those expressly set forth herein. In particular, Fidelity need not investigate whether the Lender is entitled under the Lender's agreements with the Account Owner to give any Collateral Instruction or notice of default. Fidelity shall have no liability to the Account Owner or the Lender for any Collateral Instructions or timing thereof received from the Lender, or for any act or omission taken by Fidelity in reliance thereon. Fidelity may, in its sole discretion, decline to follow any Collateral Instructions which Fidelity considers unclear or which in Fidelity's reasonable judgment create a risk of liability to Fidelity (without giving effect to paragraph 10 below) unless and until Fidelity is satisfied in its sole discretion with all arrangements and indemnifications relating thereto.

10. Indemnification of Fidelity.

The Lender and the Account Owner severally and jointly agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Fidelity, its affiliates, and each of their respective successors, officers, directors, employees and assigns (collectively with Fidelity, the "Fidelity Parties"), from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, charges, damages, claims, demands, actions, causes of action or suits and other expenses of every nature and character (including attorney's fees and disbursements) and damages that any Fidelity Parties may sustain or incur arising out of or in connection with the provisions of this Control Agreement or any act or omission of Fidelity taken in good faith in reliance on this Control Agreement, including, without limitation, in acting upon instructions which Fidelity believed in good faith to have been properly given. The Account Owner further agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Fidelity Parties from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, charges, damages, claims, demands, actions, causes of action or suits and other expenses of every nature and character (including attorney's fees and disbursements) that any of the Fidelity Parties may sustain or incur in connection with assets that have left the Account and/or trading losses incurred in the Account at any time. Fidelity shall not be liable for any failure by the Account Owner, the Lender or any other person to perform their obligations relating to the underlying Pledge Agreement or any instruction from the Account Owner or the Lender, including without limitation following delivery of any Notice of Sole Control.

11. Adverse Claims.

If any Person asserts any lien, encumbrance or adverse claim (including any writ, garnishment, judgment, warrant of attachment, execution or similar process) (each, an "Adverse Claim") against the Account or in any financial asset carried therein, Fidelity will respond in accordance with its ordinary procedures, including complying with all such documents and turning over assets in the Account as required under the law, and the Account Owner and the Lender waive any claims either the Account Owner or the Lender may have in respect thereof. Fidelity will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify the Lender and the Account Owner thereof upon receipt of any such notice and or Adverse Claim. The Account Owner agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Fidelity Parties to the extent that the Lender asserts that Fidelity acted improperly to any such Adverse Claim or proceeding.

12. Request for Information.

The Lender and the Account Owner each agree that Fidelity may provide, but has no such obligation to provide, information to either or both the Lender and the Account Owner with respect to the Account and the Collateral.

13. Complete Agreement; Amendments; Other Related Agreements.

This Control Agreement is the entire agreement and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous oral agreements of the parties hereto concerning the subject matter of this Control Agreement.

continue in full force and effect with respect to the Account. In the event of a conflict between this Control Agreement and another agreement, the provisions of this Control Agreement shall prevail.

14. Termination of Agreement.

This Control Agreement shall continue in effect until the earlier to occur of (a) receipt by Fidelity of a "Notice of Termination of Control Agreement" in the exact form as Exhibit B to this Control Agreement, or (b) the closing of the Account and transfer of the Collateral held therein to the Lender or pursuant to the instructions given by the Lender to Fidelity with respect to the transfer of such Account and Collateral. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Fidelity may terminate this Agreement upon 60 days' prior written notice to the Lender and the Account Owner. The Lender may terminate this Agreement upon 60 days' prior written notice to the Account Owner and Fidelity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Lender notifies Fidelity in writing that the Account Owner's obligations to the Lender have been paid in full, this Agreement will terminate immediately without any prior written notice. The Account Owner may not terminate this Agreement except with the written consent of the Lender and upon 60 days' prior written notice to Fidelity and the Lender. If Fidelity terminates this Agreement in accordance with this paragraph, and if Fidelity receives no written instructions signed by the Lender and the Account Owner regarding transfer of the Account and the Collateral prior to the effective date of the termination, the Lender and the Account Owner agree that upon the expiration of the termination notice period, Fidelity will close the Account and transfer all Collateral (including cash and securities in the Account) to the Lender. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all parties acknowledge that the termination of this Control Agreement may require the completion of certain account transfer activities. The Lender and the Account Owner further acknowledge and agree that Fidelity may be required to liquidate certain securities in order to transfer the Account and other Collateral in accordance with this paragraph. The Account Owner will be responsible for any tax consequences resulting from any such liquidation, as well as any sale of securities pursuant to any trading instructions.

15. Successors and Assigns.

This Control Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns; provided, however, that no party may assign (other than as a consequence of law in the case of a merger or amalgamation) any of its rights or obligations hereunder without the prior written consent of Fidelity.

16. Counterparts.

This Control Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, all of which when taken together shall be deemed an original.

17. Arbitration.

This Control Agreement contains a predispute arbitration clause. Under this clause, which each party agrees to when it signs this Control Agreement, the parties agree as follows:

A. All parties to this Control Agreement are giving up the right to sue each other in court, including the right to a trial by jury, except as provided by the rules of the arbitration forum in which a claim is filed.

B. Arbitration awards are generally final and binding; a party's ability to have a court reverse or modify an arbitration award is very limited.

C. The ability of the parties to obtain documents, witness statements, and other discovery is generally more limited in arbitration than in court proceedings.

D. The arbitrators do not have to explain the reason(s) for their award.

E. The panel of arbitrators may include a minority of arbitrators who were or are affiliated with the securities industry.

F. The rules of some arbitration forums may impose time limits for bringing a claim in arbitration. In some cases, a claim that is ineligible for arbitration may be brought in court.

G. The rules of the arbitration forum in which the claim is filed, and any amendments thereto, shall be incorporated into this Control Agreement.

All controversies that may arise among the parties hereunder (including, but not limited to, controversies concerning any account, order, or transaction, or the continuation, performance, interpretation, or breach of this or any other agreement between the Lender or the Account Owner and Fidelity, whether entered into or arising before, on, or after the date the Account is opened) shall be determined by arbitration in accordance with the rules then prevailing of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) or any United States securities self-regulatory organization as may be designated by a party hereto (the "initiating party"), which delivers a written demand for arbitration hereunder to another party hereto (the "responding party"). If the initiating party fails to notify the responding party of such designation within five (5) days after the responding party receives such written demand for arbitration, then the responding party may make such designation. The parties hereto understand that judgment upon any arbitration award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

No person shall bring a putative or certified class action to arbitration, nor seek to enforce any predispute arbitration agreement against any person who has initiated in court a putative class action; or who is a member of a putative class action who has not opted out of the class with respect to any claims encompassed by the putative class action until: (i) the class certification is denied; or (ii) the class is decertified; or (iii) such person is excluded from the class by the court. Such forbearance to enforce an agreement to arbitrate shall not constitute a waiver of any rights under this Control Agreement except to the extent stated herein.

18. Governing Law.

The construction and effect of every provision of this Control Agreement, the rights of the parties hereunder and any questions arising out of the Control Agreement, shall be subject to the statutory and common law of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (except for its conflict of law provisions).

19. Force Majeure.

Fidelity shall not be liable for any loss caused, directly or indirectly, by government restrictions, exchange or market rulings, extreme market volumes or volatility, suspension of trading, war (whether declared or undeclared), terrorist acts, insurrection, riots, flooding, strikes, failure of utility services, accidents, adverse weather or events of nature, or other conditions beyond the control of Fidelity.

20. Amendment.

No amendment or modification of this Control Agreement or waiver of any right hereunder shall be binding on any party hereto unless it is in writing and is signed by all of the parties hereto.

21. Notices.

All notices from the Lender and the Account Owner to Fidelity must be in writing and shall be deemed to have been properly given when sent by certified or registered United States mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, addressed to the parties at the address as listed in the account application, or such other addresses as may be subsequently given to the other parties in writing.
