12.

  (b) Waiver of any default hereunder by Lender shall not be a waiver of any other default or of a same default on a later occasion. No delay or failure by Lender to exercise any right or remedy shall be a waiver of such right or remedy and no single or partial exercise by Lender of any right or remedy shall preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy at any other time.
  (c) This Security Agreement and all rights and obligations hereunder, including matters of construction, validity and performance, shall be governed by the laws of Minnesota, without regard to principles of conflicts of law.
