REMEDY. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, Lender, at its option, shall be entitled to exercise any one or more of the remedies described in this Agreement, in all documents evidencing the Obligations, in any other agreements executed by or delivered by Debtor for benefit of Lender, in any third-party security agreement, mortgage, pledge, or guaranty relating to the Obligations, in the Uniform Commercial Code of the state in which Lender is located, and all remedies at law and equity, all of which shall be deemed cumulative.

The Debtor agrees, in the case of default, to assemble, at its own expense, all Collateral at a convenient place acceptable to the Lender.

Debtor waives any right that Debtor may have, in such instance, to a judicial hearing prior to such retaking. The Lender shall have the right to hold any property then in or upon said Collateral at the time of repossession not covered by the security agreement until return is demanded in writing by Debtor. Debtor agrees to pay all reasonable costs of the Lender in connection with the collecting of the Obligations and enforcement of any rights connected with retaking, holding, testing, repairing, improving, selling, leasing, or disposing of the Collateral, or like expenses. These expenses, together with interest thereon from the date incurred until paid by Debtor at the maximum post-default rate stated in the notes secured hereby, which Debtor agrees to pay, shall constitute additional Obligations and shall be secured by and entitled to the benefits of this Agreement. The Lender may sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of the Collateral, by public or private proceedings, for cash or credit, without assumption of credit risk. Unless the Collateral is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in value or of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, Lender will send Debtor reasonable notice of the time and place of any public sale or of the time after which any private sale or other disposition will be made. Any notification of intended disposition of the Collateral by the Lender shall be deemed to be reasonable and proper if sent United States mail, postage prepaid, electronic mail, facsimile, overnight delivery or other commercially reasonable means to the Debtor at least ten (10) days before such disposition, and addressed to the Debtor either at the address shown herein or at any other address provided to Lender in writing for the purpose of providing notice. Proceeds received by Lender from disposition of the Collateral may be applied toward Lender's expenses and other obligations in such order or manner as Lender may elect. Debtor shall be entitled to any surplus if one results after lawful application of the proceeds. If the proceeds from a sale of the Collateral are insufficient to extinguish the Obligations of the Debtor hereunder, Debtor shall be liable for a deficiency. Lender shall have the right, whether before or after default, to collect and receipt for, compound, compromise, and settle, and give releases, discharges, and acquittances with respect to, any and all amounts owed by any person or entity with respect to the Collateral. Lender may remedy any default and may waive any default without waiving the default remedied and without waiving any other prior or subsequent default. The rights and remedies of the Lender are cumulative, and the exercise of any one or more of the rights or remedies shall not be deemed an election of rights or remedies or a waiver of any other right or remedy.


FUTURE ADVANCES AND AFTER-ACQUIRED PROPERTY. Future advances may be made at any time by the Lender under this Agreement to the extent allowed by law. The security interest grant contained in this Agreement also applies to any Collateral of the type(s) identified in this Agreement that the Debtor acquires after this Agreement is executed, except that no security interest attaches to after-acquired consumer goods unless the Debtor acquires rights in such goods within 10 days of Lender giving value. In anticipation of future advances by Lender, the Debtor authorizes Lender to file any necessary financing statements to protect Lender's security interest.


EXERCISE OF LENDER'S RIGHTS. Any delay on the part of the Lender in exercising any power, privilege, or right hereunder, or under any other document executed by Debtor to the Lender in connection herewith, shall not operate as a waiver thereof, and no single or partial exercise thereof or any other power, privilege, or right shall preclude other or further exercise thereof. The waiver by the Lender of any default of the Debtor shall not constitute a waiver of subsequent default.


CONTINUING AGREEMENT. This is a continuing agreement and the security interest (and pledge and assignment, as applicable) hereby granted and all of the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed a continuing agreement and shall remain in full force and effect until the Obligations are paid in full. In the event that Lender should take additional Collateral, or enter into other security agreements, mortgages, guarantees, assignments, or similar documents with respect to the Obligations, or should Lender enter into other such agreements with respect to other obligations of Debtor, such agreements shall not discharge this Agreement, which shall be construed as cumulative and continuing and not alternative and exclusive.


Any attempted revocation or termination shall only be effective if explicitly confirmed in a signed writing issued by Lender to such effect and shall in no way impair or affect any transactions entered into or rights created or liabilities incurred or arising prior to such revocation or termination, as to which this Agreement shall be truly operative until same are repaid and discharged in full. Unless otherwise required by applicable law, Lender shall be under no obligation to issue a termination statement or similar document unless Debtor requests same in writing, and providing further, that all Obligations have been repaid and discharged in full and there are no commitments to make advances, incur any obligations, or otherwise give value.


ABSENCE OF CONDITIONS OF LIABILITY. This Agreement is unconditional. Lender shall not be required to exhaust its remedies against Debtor, other collateral, or guarantors, or pursue any other remedies within Lender's power before being entitled to exercise its remedies hereunder. Lender's rights to the Collateral shall not be altered by the lack of validity or enforceability of the Obligations against Debtor, and this Agreement shall be fully enforceable irrespective of any counterclaim which the Debtor may assert on the underlying debt and notwithstanding any stay, modification, discharge, or extension of Debtor's Obligation arising by virtue of Debtor's insolvency, bankruptcy, or reorganization, whether occurring with or without Lender's consent.


NOTICES. Any notice or demand given by Lender to Debtor in connection with this Agreement, the Collateral, or the Obligations, shall be deemed given and effective upon deposit in the United States mail, postage prepaid, electronic mail, facsimile, overnight delivery or other commercially reasonable means addressed to Debtor at the address designated at the beginning of this Agreement, or such other address as Debtor may provide to Lender in writing from time to time for such purposes. Actual notice to Debtor shall always be effective no matter how such notice is given or received.




WAIVERS. Debtor waives notice of Lender's acceptance of this Agreement, defenses based on suretyship, and to the fullest extent permitted by law, any defense arising as a result of any election by Lender under the Bankruptcy Code or the Uniform Commercial Code. Debtor and any maker, endorser, guarantor, surety, third-party pledgor, and other party executing this Agreement that is liable in any capacity with respect to the Obligations hereby waive demand, notice of intention to accelerate, notice of acceleration, notice of nonpayment, presentment, protest, notice of dishonor, and any other similar notice whatsoever.


WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.

JOINT AND SEVERAL LIABILITY. To the extent permitted by law, each Debtor executing this Agreement is jointly and severally bound.


SEVERABILITY. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law; but, in the event any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity and shall be severed from the rest of this Agreement without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Agreement.


SURVIVAL. The rights and privileges of the Lender hereunder shall inure to the benefits of its successors and assigns, and this Agreement shall be binding on all heirs, executors, administrators, assigns, and successors of Debtor.


ASSIGNABILITY.
