In addition, the entire outstanding principal amount hereof and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon shall become due and payable upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default (as defined herein).
SECTION 3. Events of Default. The occurrence of any of the following events shall constitute an “Event of Default” hereunder:
|Borrower breaches any of the terms and provisions of this Note or any other promissory note of Borrower in favor of Holder, including the failure to pay interest, charges or other amounts due and payable hereunder or under any such other promissory note and fails to cure any such breach within 5 days thereof; or

SECTION 4. Security. This Note is being delivered to the Holder as payment for the purchase price for 800,000 shares of Common Stock of the Company (the “Collateral”) being acquired by the Borrower from the Holder and is secured by the Collateral as described below. To secure the prompt repayment of each and all of the obligations of the Borrower hereunder to the Holder and its assigns, the Borrower hereby pledges, grants, assigns and transfers to the Holder and its assigns a continuing lien on and security interest in and to all of the Collateral.
|The Borrower’s grant of such security interests to the Holder shall secure the payment and performance of the indebtedness, obligations and liabilities of the Borrower to the Holder of every kind and description, direct and indirect, absolute and contingent, due or to become due, now existing or hereafter arising, that relate to this Note and the rights and remedies created hereunder, and all legal and other professional fees incurred in connection with any of the foregoing. The security interest granted to the Holder hereunder shall be prior to all other interests in the Collateral.
|The Borrower hereby agrees that the Holder shall have all the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect from time to time in the State of Nevada. The Borrower agrees that at any time, and from time to time, at the request of the Holder, the Borrower shall execute and deliver (or cause to be executed and delivered) any and all such further instruments and/or documents (including without limitation, UCC-1 financing statements) as the Holder may consider reasonably necessary or desirable in order to effectuate, complete, perfect or preserve and maintain the lien created hereby. Upon any failure by the Borrower to do so, the Holder may make, execute, record, file, re-record or refile any and all such instruments and documents for and in the name of the Borrower; the Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints the Holder as the agent and attorney-in-fact of the Borrower to do so; and the Borrower shall reimburse the Holder, on demand, for all costs and expenses incurred by the Holder in connection therewith, such amount being added to the indebtedness arising under this Note.
|The security interest created hereunder shall terminate upon the payment in full by the Borrower to the Holder of any and all indebtedness, obligations and liabilities arising from, or in any way related to, the Note.
For the avoidance of doubt, subject to the transfer restrictions set forth in the agreement pursuant to which the Borrower acquired the Collateral, the Borrower may sell the collateral at prevailing market prices so long as such portion of the sale proceeds as is required hereunder is used to repay this Note. In order to permit the Borrower to make sales of the Collateral from time to time at market prices as contemplated, Holder is not currently perfecting its security interest in the Collateral. Although the security interest created hereunder may not be currently perfected, Borrower understands that any breach of this Section 4 would constitute an event of default and agrees that at any time upon the written request of the Holder, Borrower shall take such action as may be required to assist the Holder in perfecting the security interest contemplated hereby, including, without limitation, delivering to the Holder a stock certificate evidencing the Collateral and a stock power executed by the Borrower in blank.

SECTION 7. Waivers; Severability; Headings.
|No delay or omission by the Holder in exercising any power or right hereunder shall operate as a waiver of any power or right, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any power or right preclude other or further exercise of such power or right or of any other power or right hereunder or otherwise; and no waiver, modification, amendment, extension, discharge or other alteration of this Note or of any covenant, agreement, term or condition contained herein shall be valid unless set forth in a writing signed by the Holder, and such alteration shall then be valid only to the extent expressly set forth in such writing.

Upon or after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Holder shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the applicable Uniform Commercial Code and, without limitation, are hereby authorized and empowered to sell, assign, or deliver, in a commercially reasonable manner, all or any part of the a first-priority security interest (the “Pledged Interest”) at public or private sale, either for cash or on credit or by credit bid, without assumption of any credit risk, without demand or adjustment (unless otherwise required by law) in accordance with applicable law, including securities laws. In the event of such sale, the Holder shall deduct from the proceeds of the sale all reasonable costs and expenses of every kind paid or incurred by it in enforcing the security interest in the Pledged Interest created hereunder. Thereafter, the Holder shall apply the remaining proceeds of any such sale to the payment or reduction, either in whole or in part, of the obligations, until such time as the obligations have been fully paid, returning the surplus, if any, to the Borrower (subject to the rights of third parties). The Holder shall not incur any liability as a result of any private sale of the Pledged Interest that is conducted in a commercially reasonable manner, upon reasonable notice to the Borrower and in accordance with applicable law during the continuance of an Event of Default. So long as any sale is made in a commercially reasonable manner and in accordance with applicable law during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Borrower hereby waives any claims which may arise by reason of the fact that the price at which the Pledged Interest is sold at private sale is less than the price which would have been obtained at a public sale or sales or is less than the amount of the obligations, even if the Holder accepts the first offer received or makes the only offer or does not offer the Pledged Interest to more than one offeree (including itself).
SECTION 12. Suits for Enforcement.

SECTION 13. Remedies Cumulative. No remedy herein conferred upon the Holder is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy, and each and every such remedy shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or by statute or otherwise.
SECTION 14. Remedies Not Waived. No course of dealing between the Borrower and the Holder and no delay in exercising any rights hereunder shall operate as a waiver of any rights of the Holder.
SECTION 15. Notice of Action of Claimed Defaults. If a holder of other obligations of the Borrower shall give any notice of a claimed default or event of default (as those terms may be defined in the relevant documentation) or shall take any other action with respect to a claimed default or event of default, immediately upon obtaining knowledge thereof, the Borrower shall give the Holder written notice specifying such action and the nature and status of the claimed default or event of default.
