2. Priority.   Each of the Secured Parties and the Debtor hereby acknowledges, confirms and agrees that the security interests granted in and to the Collateral shall be fully, unconditionally and irrevocably subordinate in all respects in favour of any security interests granted by the Debtor from time to time in favour of Payplant LLC.

4. Exceptions - Leases. The last day of any term reserved by any lease, verbal or written, or any agreement therefor, now held or hereafter acquired by the Debtor is hereby excepted out of the security interests created hereby. The Debtor shall assign and dispose of such last day of any term reserved by any such lease in such manner as the Secured Parties may from time to time direct in writing. Upon any sale, assignment, sublease or other disposition of such lease or agreement to lease, the Secured Parties shall, for the purpose of vesting the aforesaid residue of any such term in any purchaser, assignee, sublessee or such other acquirer of the lease, agreement to lease or any interest therein, be entitled by deed or other written instrument to assign to such other person, the aforesaid residue of any such term in place of the Debtor and to vest the same freed and discharged from any obligation whatsoever respecting the same.


5. Where Consent Required. Nothing herein shall constitute an assignment or attempted assignment of any right, privilege, benefit, contract, permit, policy or other document or instrument which by the provisions thereof or by law is not assignable or which requires the consent of any third party to its assignment unless and until such consent is obtained or is waived by the third party. In each such case the Debtor shall, unless the Vendors’ Representative otherwise agrees in writing, forthwith obtain the consent of any necessary third party to its assignment hereby and for its further assignment by the Secured Parties to any third party who may acquire same as a result of the Secured Parties’ exercise of remedies after an Event of Default. Upon such consents being obtained or waived, this Security Agreement shall apply thereto without regard to this Section 5 and without the necessity of any further assurance to effect the assignment thereof.


6. Pending Consent. In any case to which Section 5 applies, unless and until consent to assignment is obtained as therein provided, the Debtor shall, to the extent it may do so by law or pursuant to the provisions of the document or interest therein referred to, hold all benefit to be derived therefrom in trust for the Secured Parties as additional security for performance of the Obligations and shall deliver up all such benefit to the Secured Parties forthwith upon demand by the Secured Parties.
