Except as expressly required pursuant to Section 7(a) hereunder, if any Event of Default shall occur, then, in each and every such case, Secured Party may, without: (i) presentment, demand, or protest; (ii) notice of default dishonor, demand, nonpayment, or protest; (iii) notice of intent to accelerate all or any part of the Obligations; (iv) notice of acceleration of all or any part of the Obligations; or (v) notice of any other kind, all of which Debtor hereby expressly waives (except for any notice required under this Agreement any other loan document or which may not be waived under applicable law), at any time thereafter exercise and/or enforce any of the following rights and remedies, at Secured Party’s option:

If, in the opinion of Secured Party, there is any question that a public sale or distribution of any Collateral will violate any state or federal securities law, Secured Party may offer and sell such Collateral in a transaction exempt from registration under federal securities law, and any such sale made in good faith by Secured Party shall be deemed “commercially reasonable.”
(a) Termination. This Agreement shall terminate upon the payment of the Note.
(b) Successors and Assigns. This Agreement is for the benefit of Secured Party, its successors and assigns. This Agreement is binding upon Debtor and Debtor’ successors, including without limitation any Person obligated by operation of law upon the reorganization, merger, consolidation or other change in the organizational structure of Debtor. Debtor may not assign any of its rights hereunder without the prior written consent of Secured party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

Any notice, request, demand, claim, or other communication hereunder will be deemed duly given if (and then three Business Days after) it is sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, and addressed to the intended recipient as set forth on the signature page hereto. Any party hereto may send and notice, request, demand, claim, or other communication hereunder to the intended recipient at the address set forth on the signature page hereto using any other means (including personal delivery, expedited courier, messenger service, telecopy, telex, ordinary mail, or electronic mail), but no such notice, request, demand, claim, or other communication will be deemed to have been duly given unless and until it actually is received by the intended recipient. Any party hereto may change the address to which notices, requests, demands, claims, and other communications hereunder are to be delivered by giving the other notice in the manner herein set forth.
(e) Amendments and Waivers. No amendment, modification, replacement, termination, waiver or cancellation of any provision of this Agreement will be valid, unless the same will be in writing and signed by the each party hereto. No waiver by any party hereto of any default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder, whether intentional or not, may be deemed to extend to any prior or subsequent default, misrepresentation, or breach of warranty or covenant hereunder or affect in any way any rights arising because of any prior or subsequent such occurrence.
(f) Severability. The provisions of this Agreement will be deemed severable and the invalidity or unenforceability of any provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions hereof; provided that if any provision of this Agreement, as applied to any party hereto or to any circumstance, is adjudged by a Governmental Entity, arbitrator, or mediator not to be enforceable in accordance with its terms, the parties hereto agree that the Governmental Entity, arbitrator, or mediator making such determination will have the power to modify the provision in a manner consistent with its objectives such that it is enforceable, and/or to delete specific words or phrases, and in its reduced form, such provision will then be enforceable and will be enforced.
(g) Cumulative Rights. Except as expressly provided herein, the rights, obligations and remedies created by this Agreement are cumulative and in addition to any other rights, obligations or remedies otherwise available at law or in equity. Except as expressly provided herein, nothing herein will be considered an election of remedies.
(h) Governing Law. This Agreement and the performance of the obligations of the Parties hereunder will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any choice of law principles.
(i) Construction. Any reference to any federal, state, local, or foreign law will be deemed also to refer to law as amended and all rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, unless the context requires otherwise. The words “include,” “includes,” and “including” will be deemed to be followed by “without limitation.” Pronouns in masculine, feminine, and neuter genders will be construed to include any other gender, and words in the singular form will be construed to include the plural and vice versa, unless the context otherwise requires. The words “this Agreement,” “herein,” “hereof,” “hereby,” “hereunder,” and words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular subdivision unless expressly so limited. The Parties intend that each representation, warranty, and covenant contained herein will have independent significance. If any party hereto has breached any representation, warranty, or covenant contained herein in any respect, the fact that there exists another representation, warranty or covenant relating to the same subject matter (regardless of the relative levels of specificity) which the party hereto has not breached will not detract from or mitigate the fact that the party hereto is in breach of the first representation, warranty, or covenant.
(j) Electronic Signatures.
A. Notwithstanding the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (15 U.S.C. Sec. 7001 et.seq.), the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, or any other law relating to or enabling the creation, execution, delivery, or recordation of any Contract or signature by electronic means, and notwithstanding any course of conduct engaged in by the Parties, no Party will be deemed to have executed this Agreement or other document contemplated thereby (including any amendment or other change thereto) unless and until such party shall have executed this Agreement or other document on paper by a handwritten original signature or any other symbol executed or adopted by a party hereto with current intention to authenticate this Agreement or such other document contemplated.
B. Delivery of a copy of this Agreement or such other document bearing an original signature by facsimile transmission (whether directly from one facsimile device to another by means of a dial-up connection or whether mediated by the worldwide web), by electronic mail in “portable document format” (“.pdf”) form, or by any other electronic means intended to preserve the original graphic and pictorial appearance of a document, will have the same effect as physical delivery of the paper document bearing the original signature, provided a copy bearing an original signature on paper is subsequently physically delivered. “Originally signed” or “original signature” means or refers to a signature that has not been mechanically or electronically reproduced.
