(e) any absence of any notice to, or knowledge of, the Partnership, of the existence or occurrence of any of the matters or events set forth in the foregoing subsections (a) through (d); or
(f) any other circumstance which might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, a guarantor.
The obligations of the Partnership hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason, including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, and shall not be subject to any defense or setoff, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of the HEP Operating Obligations or otherwise.

The Partnership hereby waives promptness, diligence, all setoffs, presentments, protests and notice of acceptance and any other notice relating to any of the HEP Operating Payment Obligations and any requirement for HFRM to protect, secure, perfect or insure any security interest or lien or any property subject thereto or exhaust any right or take any action against HEP Operating, any other entity or any collateral.
11.4 Subrogation Waiver. The Partnership agrees that for so long as there is a current or ongoing default or breach of this Agreement by HEP Operating, the Partnership shall not have any rights (direct or indirect) of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnification or other rights of payment or recovery from HEP Operating for any payments made by the Partnership under this ARTICLE 11, and each of the Partnership hereby irrevocably waives and releases, absolutely and unconditionally, any such rights of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement, indemnification and other rights of payment or recovery it may now have or hereafter acquire against HEP Operating during any period of default or breach of this Agreement by HEP Operating until such time as there is no current or ongoing default or breach of this Agreement by HEP Operating.
11.5 Reinstatement.
