(e) Debtor will immediately notify Secured Party of any event causing a substantial loss or diminution in the value of all or any material part of the Collateral.

(g) Debtor will not sell, lease or transfer any of the Collateral or any interest therein (except in the ordinary course of business), without the prior written consent of Secured Party.

Unless otherwise specified, the chief executive office of Debtor, the location where Debtor maintains its books and records and the location of the Collateral is the address of Debtor set forth above.
(i) Upon reasonable notice Debtor shall permit Secured Party and its agents to inspect any or all of the Collateral at all reasonable times and shall promptly deliver to Secured Party and its agents such information with respect to the Collateral as Secured Party may reasonably request from time to time.

(j) Debtor will have and maintain insurance at all times with respect to the Collateral against risks of fire (including so-called extended coverage), business interruption and such other risks as Secured Party may require, containing such terms, in such form, for such periods and written by such companies as may be acceptable to Secured Party, such insurance to be payable to Secured Party and to provide for at least twenty (20) days’ prior written cancellation notice to Secured Party. Debtor shall furnish Secured Party with certificates or other evidence satisfactory to Secured Party of compliance with the foregoing insurance provisions.

Section 3. Remedies Upon Event Of Default. If any Event of Default occurs and is not cured within five (5) days after Debtor’s receipt of a written notice of default, Secured Party may declare all obligations secured hereby to be immediately due and payable without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived. Secured Party may exercise all the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code. Secured Party may require Debtor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Secured Party at a place designated by Secured Party. The requirements of reasonable notice shall be met if notice is mailed, postage prepaid, to Debtor at its address set forth above at least ten (10) days before the time of sale or disposition of the Collateral. The Secured Party shall have the right to demand from the Debtor a list of all accounts assigned hereunder and to notify any and all account debtors to make payment thereof directly to Secured Party. Secured Party shall also have the right to (i) open all mail addressed to Debtor; (ii) change the Post Office box or mailing address of Debtor; and (iii) use Debtor’s stationery and billing forms or facsimiles thereof, for the purpose of collecting accounts and realizing upon the Collateral. Debtor understands and agrees the Secured Party may exercise its rights hereunder without affording Debtor an opportunity for a preseizure hearing before Secured Party, through judicial process or otherwise, takes possession of the Collateral upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, and Debtor expressly waives its constitutional right, if any, to such prior hearing.
Section 4. Expenses. Debtor will pay to Secured Party on demand any and all reasonable expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred or paid by Secured Party in protecting or enforcing any of its rights hereunder, including its right to take possession of the Collateral, store and dispose of the same or collect the proceeds thereof.
Section 5. Waivers, Non-Exclusive Remedies. No failure or delay on the part of Secured Party in exercising any rights under this Security Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise by Secured Party of any of such rights preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other rights with respect to the Collateral, and no waiver as to one Event of Default shall affect the rights of Secured Party as to any other or subsequent Event of Default.
Section 6. Changes In Writing. This Agreement and any provision hereof may not be amended, waived or terminated except by a written instrument signed by Secured Party and Debtor.
Section 7. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (except in cases and with respect to Collateral when the perfection, the effect of perfection or nonperfection, and the priority of a lien in the Collateral is governed by another jurisdiction, in which case such jurisdiction shall control).
Section 8. Successors And Assigns. All the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the respective heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns of the parties hereto.
Section 9. Further Assurances. Debtor will execute and deliver to Secured Party, upon Secured Party’s request and at Debtor’s sole cost and expense, any documents Secured Party deems necessary for the perfection of its security interests or preservation of its rights hereunder.
Section 10. General Authority. Secured Party may, at its election, discharge taxes, liens or security interests or other encumbrances at any time levied or placed upon the Collateral, pay for insurance on the Collateral and pay for the maintenance and preservation of the Collateral. Debtor agrees to reimburse Secured Party on demand for any payment made, or any expense incurred by Secured Party pursuant to the foregoing authorization. Upon request by Secured Party, Debtor will deliver to Secured Party a detailed aging of accounts receivable in form acceptable to Secured Party.
Section 11. Limited Power Of Attorney. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Debtor hereby appoints Secured Party its true and lawful attorney with full power of substitution to execute any and all documents Secured Party deems necessary to perfect its security interests hereunder, to demand, collect, receive, receipt for, sue for, compound and give acquittance for, any and all amounts due and to become due on any accounts and to endorse the name of the Debtor on all commercial paper given in payment or part-payment thereof and in its discretion to file any claim or take any other action which Secured Party may deem necessary or appropriate to protect and preserve and realize upon the security interest of the Secured Party in any accounts or the proceeds thereof, to obtain, adjust, settle and cancel any insurance and endorse any drafts in payment of any loss, to take any actions permitted by Section 10 hereof and to do all other acts or things contemplated by this Agreement.
Section 12. Substitution of Security. At any time while this Agreement is in effect, Debtor shall have the right to post an irrevocable letter of credit in substitution for this Agreement in an amount equal to the then outstanding balance of the Obligations and containing such terms as are reasonably acceptable to Secured Party, and upon such posting Secured Party shall discharge all security interests with respect to the Collateral.
Section 13. No Novation. The Debtor and the Secured Party agree that this Agreement is not, and is not intended to be, a novation and that any existing security interests of Secured Party relating to the Collateral, including but not limited to those arising from and relating to Schedule 1 to the Master Lease, shall continue in full force and effect.
