It is further the intention of the parties hereto that the Receivables and the related Purchased Assets shall not be part of the Banks estate in the event of a bankruptcy or insolvency of the Bank. The sales and transfers by the Bank of the Receivables and the related Purchased Assets hereunder are and shall be without recourse to, or representation or warranty (express or implied) by, the Bank, except as otherwise specifically provided herein. The limited rights of recourse specified herein against the Bank are intended to provide a remedy for breach of representations and warranties relating to the condition of the property sold, rather than to the collectibility of the Receivables.

(i) this Agreement shall be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 of the New York UCC and the UCC of any other applicable jurisdiction;
(ii) the conveyance provided for in Section 2.1 shall be deemed to be a grant by the Bank of, and the Bank hereby grants to COAR a security interest in all of its right (including the power to convey title thereto), title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to the Receivables and other Purchased Assets, to secure such indebtedness and the performance of the obligations of the Bank hereunder;
|-11-||COPAR 2021-1 Purchase Agreement|
(iii) the possession by COAR or its agent of the Receivable Files and any other property that constitute instruments, money, negotiable documents or chattel paper shall be deemed to be possession by the secured party or possession by COAR or a Person designated by COAR for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the New York UCC and the UCC of any other applicable jurisdiction; and
(iv) notifications to Persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from Persons holding such property, shall be deemed to be notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, bailees or agents (as applicable) of COAR for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law.
SECTION 4.2 Notices, Etc.
