Secured Party or SBA may use state or local procedures for filing papers, recording documents, giving notice, enforcing security interests or liens, and for any other purposes. By using such procedures, SBA does not waive any federal immunity from state or local control, penalty, tax or liability. As to this Agreement, Borrower may not claim or assert any local or state law against SBA to deny any obligation, defeat any claim of SBA, or preempt federal law.
11. GOVERNING LAW.
Unless SBA is the holder of the Note, in which case federal law will govern, Borrower and Secured Party agree that this Agreement will be governed by the laws of the jurisdiction where the Borrower is located, including the UCC as in effect in such jurisdiction and without reference to its conflicts of laws principles.
12. SECURED PARTY RIGHTS.
All rights conferred in this Agreement on Secured Party are in addition to those granted to it by law, and all rights are cumulative and may be exercised simultaneously. Failure of Secured Party to enforce any rights or remedies will not constitute an estoppel or waiver of Secured Party’s ability to exercise such rights or remedies. Unless otherwise required under applicable law, Secured Party is not liable for any loss or damage to Collateral in its possession or under its control, nor will such loss or damage reduce or discharge the Obligations that are due, even if Secured Party’s actions or inactions caused or in any way contributed to such loss or damage.
If any provision of this Agreement is unenforceable, all other provisions remain in effect.
