As set forth in the Agreement, Affiliate acknowledges and agrees that USSAN has conveyed to Affiliate the right to use USSAN proprietary and Confidential Information, certain trade secrets, the “U-HAUL” trademark, other trademarks, copyrights and artwork. Affiliate acknowledges that it uses USSAN Confidential Information and proprietary information, including certain trade secrets, the “U-HAUL” trademark, other trademarks, copyrights and artwork. Affiliate acknowledges that the trademark “U-HAUL” is a registered and well recognized trademark. Affiliate acknowledges that any use of the “U-HAUL” trademark by or for the Affiliate is a benefit for Affiliate and will cause the public to associate the Affiliate with USSAN. Affiliate acknowledges that if Affiliate were to engage in, or assist others in, the operation of an internet based storage affiliate program, that provides membership benefits to independent self-storage operators similar to the “U-Haul Self-Storage Affiliate Program”, during the duration of the Agreement, and for a period of one year thereafter, this would cause customer confusion in the marketplace as customers will associate USSAN with this other storage affiliate program. As a result of Affiliate’s acknowledgments herein and in exchange for Affiliate’s right to use and its use of USSAN Confidential Information and proprietary information, including certain trade secrets, and Affiliate's use of the “U-HAUL” trademark, other trademarks, copyrights and artwork, Affiliate agrees, intends, represents, and warrants as follows:
Affiliate, for itself, its assigns, successors, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, principals, partners, agents, managers and members, shall not, during the term of this Agreement, and for a period of one (1) year after termination of this Agreement for any reason by either party, engage in, or assist others in, the operation of an internet based storage affiliate program that provides membership benefits to independent self-storage operators similar to the USSAN. Because the U-Haul Self-Storage Affiliate Program operates throughout the United States and Canada, this covenant shall apply in each State/Province in which Affiliate operates and throughout the United States and Canada.
Affiliate agrees that the restrictions herein are reasonable in duration, scope, geography, and that sufficient consideration has been provided for Affiliate’s promises hereunder. If any such restriction is deemed by the arbitrator to be unenforceable, illegal or invalid, such a finding will not affect the enforceability of the remainder of this Covenant or the Agreement. If any such restriction is held not to be enforceable in accordance with its terms because of the duration of the provision, the areas covered thereby, or the scope of the activities covered, Affiliate and USSAN agree that the arbitrator making the determination will have the power (and is hereby instructed by the parties) to reduce the duration, area, and/or scope of activities of such restriction, and/or to delete or modify specific words or phrases (it being the intent of the parties that any such reduction or modification be limited to the minimum extent necessary to render such restriction enforceable) and in its reduced or modified form such restriction will then be legal, valid, and enforceable in accordance with its terms and will be enforced.
Affiliate does acknowledge and agree that any breach of this non-competition covenant shall cause USSAN irreparable harm and as a result, USSAN will have no adequate remedy at law. Therefore, Affiliate does acknowledge and agree that USSAN does have the right to seek and to obtain injunctive relief for any breach of the non-competition covenant. Furthermore, Affiliate agrees that any of the consideration set forth in this Agreement is sufficient for all of its promises under this section.
