This Agreement supersedes any and all previous agreements, either signed or unsigned, except that you specifically agree to continue to be bound by any patent or intellectual property provisions; any restrictive covenant provisions regarding, without limitation, non-competition, non-solicitation and non-disclosure; any non-disparagement provisions; and any Proprietary Interest Protection Agreement, all of which shall specifically survive and continue in full force and effect.
