7.1 General Rule. The Plan is an unfunded arrangement and is subject to the claims of the general creditors of the Company. No portion of any funds set apart for a Participant or Beneficiary pursuant to this Article shall be the property of such Participant or Beneficiary until distribution thereof has been made to such individual. Further, the rights of a Participant or Beneficiary shall be limited to those of a general, unsecured creditor of the Company who has a claim equal to the value of the Participant’s Retirement Benefit. Retirement Benefits shall be payable from the general assets of the Company, or from such other funding vehicle established for such purpose as described above, or both. Except as may be otherwise determined by the Board in its sole discretion pursuant to this Article VII, neither the Company, the Committee nor any other person shall have any duty to set apart or invest any funds for the purpose of providing benefits pursuant to the terms of the Plan.
