and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Buyer, by an amount which Buyer deems to be material, of entering, continuing or maintaining this Agreement or any other Program Agreement, the Transactions or to reduce any amount due or owing hereunder in respect thereof, then, in any such case, Seller shall promptly pay Buyer such additional amount or amounts as calculated by Buyer in good faith as will compensate Buyer for such increased cost or reduced amount receivable.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Seller acknowledges that Buyer may enter into a Transaction related to any Purchased Assets from Seller based solely upon the information provided by Seller to Buyer in the Asset Schedule and the representations, warranties and covenants contained herein, and that Buyer, at its option, has the right at any time to conduct a partial or complete due diligence review on some or all of the Purchased Assets related to a Transaction. Seller agrees to cooperate with Buyer and any
third party underwriter in connection with such underwriting, including providing Buyer and any third party underwriter with access to any and all documents, records, agreements, instruments or information relating to such Purchased Assets in the possession, or under the control, of Seller.
Section 10.10 Hypothecation or Pledge of Repurchase Assets. Buyer shall have free and unrestricted use of all Repurchase Assets and nothing in this Agreement shall preclude Buyer from engaging in repurchase transactions with all or a portion of the Repurchase Assets or otherwise pledging, repledging, transferring, hypothecating, or rehypothecating all or a portion of the Repurchase Assets; provided that prior to an Event of Default, such pledge, repledge, transfer, hypothecation or rehypothecation is treated as a financing or hedging transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes or a pro rata interest in all payments due to Buyer under this Agreement; provided, further that other than with respect to a pro rata interest in all payments due to Buyer under this Agreement and prior to an Event of Default Buyer receives an opinion of a nationally recognized tax counsel experienced in such matters that such repurchase transaction, pledge, repledge, transfer, hypothecation or rehypothecation will not result in the Issuer being subject to tax on its net income as an association (or publicly traded partnership) taxable as a corporation or a taxable mortgage pool taxable as a corporation, each for U.S. federal income tax purposes.
Section 10.11 Non-Confidentiality of Tax Treatment.
(a) This Agreement and its terms, provisions, supplements and amendments, and notices hereunder, are proprietary to Buyer or Seller, as applicable and shall be held by each party hereto, as applicable in strict confidence and shall not be disclosed to any third party without the written consent of Buyer or Seller, except for (i) disclosure to Buyers or Sellers direct and indirect Affiliates and Subsidiaries, attorneys or accountants, but only to the extent such disclosure is necessary and such parties agree to hold all information in strict confidence, or (ii) disclosure required by law, rule, regulation or order of a court or other regulatory body. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other Program Agreements, the parties hereto may disclose to any and all Persons, without limitation of any kind, the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions, any fact relevant to understanding the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions, and all materials of any kind (including opinions or other tax analyses) relating to such federal, state and local tax treatment and that may be relevant to understanding such tax treatment; provided that Seller may not disclose the name of or identifying information with respect to Buyer or any pricing terms (including the Pricing Rate, the Purchase Price Percentage, the Purchase Price, the Commitment Fee or the Non-Extension Fee, if applicable) or other nonpublic business or financial information (including any sublimits) that is unrelated to the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions and is not relevant to understanding the federal, state and local tax treatment of the Transactions, without the prior written consent of Buyer.
(b) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Seller shall comply with all applicable local, state and federal laws, including all privacy and data protection law, rules and regulations that are applicable to the Repurchase Assets and/or any applicable terms of this Agreement (the Confidential Information). Seller understands that the Confidential Information may contain nonpublic personal information, as that term is defined in Section 509(4) of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the GLB Act), and Seller agrees to
maintain such nonpublic personal information that it receives hereunder in accordance with the GLB Act and other applicable federal and state privacy laws. Seller shall implement such physical and other security measures as shall be necessary to (a) ensure the security and confidentiality of the nonpublic personal information of the customers and consumers (as those terms are defined in the GLB Act) of Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer which Seller holds, (b) protect against any threats or hazards to the security and integrity of such nonpublic personal information, and (c) protect against any unauthorized access to or use of such nonpublic personal information. Seller represents and warrants that it has implemented appropriate measures to meet the objectives of Section 501(b) of the GLB Act and of the applicable standards adopted pursuant thereto, as now or hereafter in effect. Upon request, Seller will provide evidence reasonably satisfactory to allow Buyer to confirm that the providing party has satisfied its obligations as required under this Section 10.11. Without limitation, this may include Buyers review of audits, summaries of test results, and other equivalent evaluations of Seller. Seller shall notify Buyer immediately following discovery of any breach or compromise of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of nonpublic personal information of the customers and consumers of Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer provided directly to Seller by Buyer or such Affiliate. Seller shall provide such notice to Buyer by personal delivery, by facsimile with confirmation of receipt, or by overnight courier with confirmation of receipt to the applicable requesting individual.
Section 10.12 Set-off. In addition to any rights and remedies of Buyer hereunder and by law, Buyer shall have the right, without prior notice to Seller, any such notice being expressly waived by Seller to the extent permitted by applicable law to set-off and appropriate and apply against any Obligation from Seller or any Affiliate thereof to Buyer or any of its Affiliates any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other obligation (including to return funds to Seller), credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by or due from Buyer or any Affiliate thereof to or for the credit or the account of Seller or any Affiliate thereof. Buyer agrees promptly to notify Seller after any such set off and application made by Buyer; provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set off and application.
Section 10.13 Intent.
(a) The parties recognize that each Transaction is a master netting agreement as that term is defined in Section 101 of Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended and a securities contract as that term is defined in Section 741 of Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended and that all payments hereunder are deemed margin payments or settlement payments as defined in Title 11 of the United States Code.
(b) It is understood that either partys right to liquidate Purchased Assets delivered to it in connection with Transactions hereunder or to exercise any other remedies pursuant to Section 7.03 is a contractual right to liquidate such Transaction as described in Sections 555 and Section 561 of Title 11 of the United States Code, as amended.
(c) The parties agree and acknowledge that if a party hereto is an insured depository institution, as such term is defined in the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, as amended
(FDIA), then each Transaction hereunder is a qualified financial contract, as that term is defined in FDIA and any rules, orders or policy statements thereunder (except insofar as the type of assets subject to such Transaction would render such definition inapplicable).
(d) It is understood that this Agreement constitutes a netting contract as defined in and subject to Title IV of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (FDICIA) and each payment entitlement and payment obligation under any Transaction hereunder shall constitute a covered contractual payment entitlement or covered contractual payment obligation, respectively, as defined in and subject to FDICIA (except insofar as one or both of the parties is not a financial institution as that term is defined in FDICIA).
(e) This Agreement is intended to be a securities contract, within the meaning of Section 555 under the Bankruptcy Code, and a master netting agreement, within the meaning of Section 561 under the Bankruptcy Code.
(f) It is the intention of the parties that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes and for accounting purposes, each Transaction constitute a financing with Seller incurring an indebtedness, and that Seller be (except to the extent that Buyer shall have exercised its remedies following an Event of Default) the owner of the Purchased Assets for such purposes. Unless prohibited by applicable law that becomes effective after the date of this Agreement, Seller and Buyer shall treat the Transactions as described in the preceding sentence (including on any and all filings with any U.S. federal, state, or local taxing authority and agree not to take any action inconsistent with such treatment).
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Seller and Buyer have caused this Master Repurchase Agreement to be executed and delivered by their duly authorized officers or trustees as of the date first above written.
