(f) The obligations to make the payments provided for in this Note are absolute and unconditional and not subject to any defense, set-off, counterclaim, rescission, recoupment or adjustment whatsoever. The Company hereby expressly waives demand and presentment for payment, notice of non-payment, notice of dishonor, protest, notice of protest, bringing of suit and diligence in taking any action to collect any amount called for hereunder, and shall be directly and primarily liable for the payment of all sums owing and to be owing hereon, regardless of and without any notice, diligence, act or omission with respect to the collection of any amount called for hereunder.

(a) Any Notes issued upon the transfer of this Note shall be numbered and shall be registered in a Note Register as they are issued. The Company shall be entitled to treat the registered holder of any Note on the Note Register as the owner in fact thereof for all purposes and shall not be bound to recognize any equitable or other claim to, or interest in, such Note on the part of any other person, and shall not be liable for any registration or transfer of Notes which are registered or to be registered in the name of a fiduciary or the nominee of a fiduciary unless made with the actual knowledge that a fiduciary or nominee is committing a breach of trust in requesting such registration or transfer, or with the knowledge of such facts that its participation therein amounts to bad faith. This Note shall be transferable only on the books of the Company upon delivery thereof duly endorsed by the Holder or by the Holder’s duly authorized attorney or representative, or accompanied by proper evidence of succession, assignment, or authority to transfer.

The Holder acknowledges that such Holder has been informed by the Company of, or is otherwise familiar with, the nature of the limitations imposed by the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder on the transfer of securities. In particular, the Holder agrees that no sale, assignment or transfer of the Note shall be valid or effective, and the Company shall not be required to give any effect to any such sale, assignment or transfer (collectively, “Transfer”), unless (i) the Transfer of the Note is registered under the Act, it being understood that the Note is not currently registered for sale and that the Company has no obligation or intention to so register the Notes, or (ii) the Transfer is exempt from registration under the Act and the Holder delivers an opinion of counsel in form and substance satisfactory to the Company and counsel for the Company that the Transfer is so exempt, and, in either case, that the Transfer is not restricted by applicable state securities laws.
