(b) While the Company possesses or controls the Collateral, Company shall bear all risk of loss or damage as to the Collateral, and shall not use the Collateral illegally or in a manner that would cause a lapse, denial or termination of any insurance coverage thereon.

Company authorizes GSRX to file any such financing or continuation statement or other document without the signature of Company where permitted by law, and will provide to Company a copy of all such documents within five business days of filing. A photocopy or other reproduction of this Agreement or any financing statement covering the Collateral or any part thereof shall be sufficient as a financing statement where permitted by law.

(c) Time is of the essence in this Agreement. Unless, and until there has been a breach of the payment obligations of the Company under the Revenue Sharing Agreement, Company may have possession of the Collateral and use the same in any lawful manner not inconsistent with this Agreement. Upon the occurrence of a breach of the payment obligations of the Company under the Revenue Sharing Agreement, GSRX may at its option (a) declare all of the outstanding payment obligations of Company to it to be immediately due and payable and shall then have all rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code and other applicable law, including without limitation, the right to take possession of an amount of Collateral (based on the actual purchase wholesale price paid by the Company) that represents the actual then current outstanding payment obligation of the Company under the Revenue Sharing Agreement, and for that purpose GSRX may enter upon any premises on which the Collateral or any records relating thereto may be situated and take possession thereof and remove the same therefrom; and (b) exercise any or all other rights and remedies available to GSRX at law or at equity. GSRX may require Company to make the Collateral and all records relating thereto available to GSRX at a place designated by GSRX which is reasonably convenient to both parties. To the extent GSRX is acting in accordance with the terms and conditions contained herein, Company hereby expressly waives any action or right of action of any kind whatsoever against GSRX because of the removal, possession or retention of the Collateral by GSRX or any entity or person designed by GSRX to act on behalf of GSRX. Company expressly authorizes GSRX to enter the premises and properties of Company, without force, to assemble, or take possession of the Collateral or any records or documents related thereto. GSRX may also, without prior notice or hearing, which notice or hearing is hereby expressly waived, sell the Collateral and credit the proceeds of such sale against the amount of the unpaid obligations under the Revenue Sharing Agreement, after deducting from said proceeds the actual proven costs and expenses of collecting the same (including reasonable attorneys’ fees).
