Unfunded Plan. Insofar as the Plan provides for Awards of cash, Shares, rights or a combination thereof, the Plan shall be unfunded. The Company may maintain bookkeeping accounts with respect to Participants who are entitled to Awards under the Plan, but such accounts shall be used merely for bookkeeping convenience. The Company shall not be required to segregate any assets that may at any time be represented by interests in Awards nor shall the Plan be construed as providing for any such segregation. None of the Committee, the Company or Board shall be deemed to be a trustee of any cash, Shares or rights to Awards granted under the Plan. Any liability of the Company to any Participant with respect to an Award or any rights thereunder shall be based solely upon any contractual obligations that may be created by the Plan and any Agreement, and no obligation of the Company under the Plan shall be deemed to be secured by any pledge or other encumbrance on any property of the Company.
21.11 Unfunded Plan. Participants shall have no right, title, or interest whatsoever in or to any investments that the Company, and/or its Affiliates, and/or its Subsidiaries may make to aid it in meeting its obligations under this Plan. Nothing contained in this Plan, and no action taken pursuant to its provisions, shall create or be construed to create a trust of any kind, or a fiduciary relationship between the Company and any Participant, beneficiary, legal representative, or any other individual. To the extent that any person acquires a right to receive payments from the Company, its Affiliates, and/or its Subsidiaries under this Plan, such right shall be no greater than the right of an unsecured general creditor of the Company, an Affiliate, or a Subsidiary, as the case may be. All payments to be made hereunder shall be paid from the general funds of the Company, an Affiliate, or a Subsidiary, as the case may be and no special or separate fund shall be established and no segregation of assets shall be made to assure payment of such amounts except as expressly set forth in this Plan.
