Smoking, whether cigarettes, cigars, or otherwise, is prohibited at all times (i) within the Building (including but not limited to the Premises and the Common Areas located within the Building), (ii) within 25 feet of any Building entrance outside the Building, and (iii) within the non-smoking areas designated by Landlord from time-to-time in the Common Areas outside the Building.

  2. Sidewalks, halls, passages, exits, entrances, elevators and stairways shall not be obstructed by tenants or used by them for any purpose other than for ingress to and egress from their respective premises. The halls, passages, exits, entrances, elevators, escalators and stairways are not intended for the use of the general public and Landlord shall in all cases retain the right to control and prevent access thereto by all persons whose presence, in the judgment of Landlord, shall be prejudicial to the safety, character, reputation and interests of the Building and its tenants, provided that nothing herein contained shall be construed to prevent such access to persons with whom any tenant normally deals in the ordinary course of such tenant's business unless such persons are engaged in illegal activities. No tenant, and no employees or invitees of any tenant, shall go upon the roof of the Building, except as authorized by Landlord.

  3. No sign, placard, picture, name, advertisement or notice, visible from the exterior of the premises shall be inscribed, painted, affixed, installed or otherwise displayed by any tenant either on its premises or any part of the Building without the prior written consent of Landlord, and Landlord shall have the right to remove any such sign, placard, picture, name, advertisement, or notice without notice to and at the expense of that tenant. If Landlord shall have given such consent to any tenant at any time, whether before or after the execution of the lease, such consent shall in no way operate as a waiver or release of any of the provisions hereof or of such lease, and shall be deemed to relate only to the particular sign, placard, picture, name, advertisement or notice so consented to by Landlord and shall not be construed as dispensing with the necessity of obtaining the specific written consent of Landlord with respect to any other such sign, placard, picture, name, advertisement or notice. All approved signs or lettering on doors and walls shall be printed, painted, affixed or inscribed at the expense of the tenant by a person approved by Landlord.

  4. The bulletin board or directory of the Building will be provided exclusively for the display of the name and location of tenants only and Landlord reserves the right to exclude any other names therefrom.

  5. No curtains, draperies, blinds, shutters, shades, screens or other coverings, awning, hangings or decorations shall be attached to, hung or placed in or used in connection with, any window or door on the premises of any tenant without the prior written consent of Landlord. In any event and with the prior written consent of Landlord, all such items shall be installed in such a manner that they shall in no way be visible from the exterior of the Building. No articles shall be placed or kept on the window sills so as to be visible from the exterior of the Building. No articles shall be placed against glass partitions or doors that might appear unsightly from outside the premises of any tenant.

  6. Landlord reserves the right to exclude from the Building between the hours of 6 pm and 8 am Monday through Friday and at all hours on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays all persons who are not ten-ants or their accompanied guests in the Building. Each tenant shall be responsible for all persons whom it allows to enter the Building and shall be liable to Landlord for all acts of such persons. Landlord shall in no case be liable for damages for error with regard to the admission to or exclusion from the Building of any person. During the continuance of any invasion, mob, riot, public excitement, emergency or other circumstance rendering such action advisable in Landlord's opinion, Landlord reserves the right to evacuate the Building and/or prevent access to the Building by closing the doors, or otherwise, for the safety of tenants and protection of the Building and property in the Building.

  7. No tenant shall employ any person or persons other than the janitor or Landlord for the purpose of cleaning the Premises unless otherwise agreed to by Landlord in writing.

No tenant shall cause any unnecessary labor by reason of such tenant's carelessness or indifference in the preservation of good order and cleanliness of the premises. Landlord shall in no way be responsible to any tenant for any loss of property on the premises, however occurring, or for any damage done to the effects of any tenant by the janitor or any other employee or any other person. Landlord shall not be responsible for the preservation of good order and cleanliness of the premises when the premises are occupied after normal business hours.

  9.
