|3.||Representations, Warranties and Covenants of Debtor.|
As an inducement to Secured Party to make the loans, advances and extensions of credit to Debtor which are secured hereby, Debtor hereby represents, warrants and covenants to Secured Party as follows:
|(a)||Debtor now owns the Collateral, free and clear of any and all liens, claims, charges, security interests, and other encumbrances of every type, kind or nature. The security interest granted to Secured Party shall be first priority. Debtor will defend the Collateral and Secured Party’s security interest in the same against any and all claims and demands of any person or persons who at any time claim any ownership or other interest therein;|
|(b)||Debtor authorizes Secured Party to file all such Uniform Commercial Code Financing Statements as Secured Party may require to perfect Secured Party’s security interest in the Collateral and protect the same against the claims of third parties. No other financing statement has been filed or recorded which includes the Collateral or the proceeds of the Collateral, in whole or in part, within its collateral description;|
|(c)||During the term of this Agreement, Debtor will not grant or suffer the existence of any other lien, claim, charge, security interest or other encumbrance of any type, kind or nature with respect to the Collateral, without the prior written consent of the Secured Party and will, at all times, maintain good and merchantable title with respect to the same;|
|(d)||Debtor will cause the Collateral to be insured with companies who are acceptable to the Secured Party, which insurance policies: (i) shall have such coverage provisions, policy limits and exclusions as Secured Party shall require; (ii) shall name Secured Party as an additional insured and/or loss payee thereunder, as its interests may appear; (iii) shall require at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Secured Party of any intended cancellation, modification, termination or expiration of the policy or policies evidencing such insurance. Debtor will deliver such certificates of insurance and other evidence of insurance coverage as Secured Party may require;|
|(e)||At all times during the term of this Agreement, and except as otherwise provided herein, Debtor: (i) shall keep and maintain the Collateral in good and usable condition, free and clear of any and all liens, claims, charges and security interests of every type, kind or nature; (ii) will promptly pay all taxes, assessments and other charges with respect to the Collateral; (iii) will not use the Collateral illegally or in violation of any Agreement between Debtor and any third party; and (iv) will not transfer, convey, assign, sell or otherwise dispose of any portion of the Collateral, except in the ordinary course of its business.|
|4.||Performance of Obligations by Secured Party.|
In the event that Debtor fails to perform or comply with the terms of any duty, obligation, representation, warranty or covenant herein contained including, without limitation: (a) Debtor’s obligation to keep the Collateral free and clear of all liens, claims, security interest and other encumbrances; (b) Debtor’s duty to repair, maintain and preserve the Collateral; and (c) Debtor’s duty to insure the Collateral in accordance with this Agreement, Secured Party may, but shall not be required to, perform such duties and obligations on behalf of Debtor, whereupon Debtor shall reimburse Secured Party for any and all amounts, costs and/or expenses which may be incurred by Secured Party to accomplish the same, plus interest on such amounts at the maximum rate permitted by law, from the date Secured Party pays or incurs the same until paid in full.
|5.||Events of Default. For purposes of this Agreement, an “Event of Default” shall mean an “Event of Default” as defined in the Debenture.|

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Secured Party may require Debtor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Secured Party at any place designated by Secured Party. Unless the Collateral is perishable, threatens to decline significantly in value, or is of a type or category which is customarily sold in a recognized market, Secured Party will give Debtor reasonable notice of the time and place of any public sale or disposition of the Collateral or the time and place after which any private sale of the Collateral may be made. The requirement of providing reasonable notice to Debtor shall be deemed satisfied if any such notice is delivered to Debtor at least five (5) days prior to the date on which any such disposition of the Collateral is to occur, which notice shall be delivered in accordance with Paragraph 9 of this Agreement. All costs and expenses which are expended or incurred by Secured Party to retake, hold, prepare for disposition and/or dispose of the Collateral including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and legal expenses, shall be added to the indebtedness secured hereby and shall be paid by Debtor to Secured Party.
The Secured Party is hereby authorized to file all such financing statements as it deems necessary or advisable to secure the security interest granted hereunder, including all renewals and extensions thereof, including any filings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Following all obligations under the Debenture being indefeasibly paid in full and upon three (3) business days’ prior written notice to Secured Party, Debtor may file UCC-3 terminations statements and such other filings to terminate the security interests granted pursuant to this Agreement.
No failure by Secured Party to insist upon exact compliance with any of the terms, provisions and/or conditions of this Agreement shall be deemed or construed as a waiver of the right to require exact compliance with each and every duty and obligation herein contained in the future.
All notices, requests or other communications required hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given or made if delivered personally or by courier service which obtains a signed receipt upon delivery, or if mailed, by United States certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested, to the parties at the respective addresses first above written, or at such other addresses as shall be specified in writing by either of the parties to the other in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Section. Notices shall be deemed effective, if delivered personally or by courier service, on the date personally delivered or, if mailed in accordance herewith, then three (3) business days after mailing.
|10.||Assignment by Debtor Prohibited.|
Neither this Agreement, nor the duties and obligations evidenced hereby, may be transferred, conveyed, assigned or otherwise delegated by Debtor without the prior written consent of Secured Party in each instance. Any such actual or attempted transfer, conveyance, assignment or delegation shall be null, void and of no legal force or effect, shall convey no rights or benefits to the purported transferee, shall release Debtor from no duty or obligation hereunder, and shall be a material breach of this Agreement.
This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of, and remain fully binding upon, the parties hereto and their respective successors, survivors and permitted assigns.
