It is hereby agreed and acknowledged that the description of the Charged Assets, including without limitations, the assets listed in Sections 3.1(a)(d) above, shall be amended and updated from time to time by the Company, in accordance with the provisions of the Loan Agreement.
The Company shall have the right to receive and use all payments pursuant to the Pledged Accounts, subject to, and as specifically permitted under, the terms and provisions of the Loan Agreement.

Nothing in this Debenture in any way limits the Company from entering into any transactions with regard to its Intellectual Property in the Ordinary Course of Business and making any Permitted Transfers.
The Company specifically acknowledges that all of the Security Interests created by the Company under Section 3 (Security) of this Debenture shall rank in priority to any other Security Interests created by the Company subject to the Creditor Floating Charge and the Permitted Security Interests.
|4.||PRESERVATION OF SECURITY|
The Company declares and agrees that:
|(a)||the Security Interests created by this Debenture shall remain in force as continuing security for the payment and discharge of the Secured Liabilities and shall remain in force notwithstanding any settlement of account or any other act, event or matter whatsoever, and, subject to Section 4.4, shall be fully released and discharged upon the full and final payment of the Secured Liabilities and subject to Section 4.4.|

All Security Interests that have been or may be created in favour of the Creditor for payment and performance of the Secured Liabilities shall be independent of one another.
For the avoidance of doubt, it is hereby clarified that this Debenture is in addition to the Debenture - Floating Charge (and in no manner in lieu thereof or replacement thereto), and each of this Debenture and the Debenture - Floating Charge shall independently serve as aforesaid to secure the Secured Liabilities in their entirety. Without derogating from the generality of the foregoing or from any other right of the Creditor, the Creditor shall have the right to act on this Debenture, on the Debenture - Floating Charge or on both, in each case in connection with the Security Interest created by each (including, without limitation, with respect to any and all assets, properties and rights subject to both this Debenture and the Debenture - Floating Charge); and no action or omission relating to any such Security Interest shall prevent or estop the Creditor from invoking such other Security Interest, at the same time or subsequently.
|4.3||Liability of the Company; Security Interest Absolute|
|(a)||The Company is a principal debtor and the Charged Assets are a principal security for the Secured Liabilities and, without prejudice to the foregoing, none of the rights of the Creditor, the Security Interests created hereunder or the liabilities or obligations of the Company or any third party, shall be impaired or discharged by (without limitation):|
|(i)||the Creditor releasing any of the Charged Assets or granting any time or any indulgence whatsoever to or making any settlement, composition or arrangement with any third party;|
|(ii)||the Creditor asserting or pursuing, failing or neglecting to assert or pursue, or delaying in asserting or pursuing, or waiving, any of its rights or remedies against the Company or any third party arising under or by virtue of this Debenture or otherwise;|
|(iii)||the Creditor making any variation, amendment or supplement to this Debenture;|
|(iv)||any agreement between the Creditor and the Company or any third party or any other document or instrument from time to time entered into between the Company or any third party and the Creditor;|

|(viii)||to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any other circumstance that could otherwise constitute a defence to or discharge of the Company or any third party, other than the payment and performance in full of the Secured Liabilities.|

|(c)||The exercise by the Creditor of any of the rights or remedies hereunder shall not release the Company from any of its liabilities or obligations under any agreement between the Creditor and the Company; for the avoidance of doubt, the application of the Charged Assets to satisfy part of the Secured Liabilities shall not release the Company from its obligation to pay and perform the Secured Liabilities in full.|
To the extent that the Company and/or subsidiaries of the Company or any third party on behalf of the Company makes a payment or payments to the Creditor, or the Creditor enforces any Security Interest or exercises any right of set-off and such payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or set-off or any part thereof are subsequently avoided or set aside, declared to be fraudulent or preferential or required to be repaid or refunded or reduced by virtue of any applicable law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, administration, receivership, liquidation or similar proceedings, the Secured Liabilities or any part thereof originally intended to be satisfied, and this Debenture and all Security Interests, rights and remedies therefor, shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment or payments had not been made or such enforcement or set-off had not occurred.
