Nothing in the foregoing release shall release any claim to enforce this Note.
6.9 Indemnity and Expenses. The Borrower agrees:
6.9.1 The Borrower (the “Indemnitor”) shall indemnify and save the Lender harmless from and against every claim, demand, liability, cost, loss, charge, suit, judgment, award, fine, penalty, and expense which the Lender may pay, suffer, or incur in consequence of having executed or delivered this Note or any documents executed in connection with this Note, including, but not limited to, court costs, mediation and facilitation fees and expenses, fees and expenses of attorneys, accountants, inspectors, experts, and consultants, whether on salary, retainer or otherwise, and the expense of procuring, or attempting to procure, release from liability, or in bringing suit to enforce the obligation of the Indemnitor under this Note or any documents executed in connection with this Note. In the event the Lender deems it necessary to respond to, make an investigation of, or settle, defend, or compromise a claim, demand or suit, the Borrower acknowledges and agrees that all expense attendant to such response, investigation, settlement, defense, and compromise, whether incurred internally or otherwise, is included as an indemnified expense and shall be paid by the Borrower to the Lender on demand. In the event of payments by the Lender, the Indemnitor agrees to accept a voucher, affidavit, or other evidence of such payments as prima facie evidence of the propriety thereof, and of the Borrower’s liability therefor to the Lender; and
6.9.2 To pay and reimburse the Lender upon demand for all costs and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and expenses) that the Lender may incur in connection with (i) the exercise or enforcement of any rights or remedies (including, but not limited to, collection) granted hereunder or otherwise available to it (whether at law, in equity or otherwise), and (ii) the failure by the Borrower to perform or observe any of the provisions hereof. The provisions of this Section shall survive the execution and delivery of this Note, the repayment of any or all of the principal or interest owed pursuant hereto, and the termination of this Note.
6.10 Usury Savings Clause. Notwithstanding any provision in this Note or the other Transaction Documents to the contrary, the total liability for payments of interest and payments in the nature of interest, including, without limitation, all charges, fees, exactions, or other sums which may at any time be deemed to be interest, shall not exceed the limit imposed by the usury laws of the jurisdiction governing this Note or any other applicable law. In the event the total liability of payments of interest and payments in the nature of interest, including, without limitation, all charges, fees, exactions or other sums which may at any time be deemed to be interest, shall, for any reason whatsoever, result in an effective rate of interest, which for any month or other interest payment period exceeds the limit imposed by the usury laws of the jurisdiction governing this Note, all sums in excess of those lawfully collectible as interest for the period in question shall, without further agreement or notice by, between, or to any party hereto, be applied to the reduction of the outstanding principal balance due hereunder immediately upon receipt of such sums by the Lender hereof, with the same force and effect as though the Borrower had specifically designated such excess sums to be so applied to the reduction of the principal balance then outstanding, and the Lender hereof had agreed to accept such sums as a penalty-free payment of principal; provided, however, that the Lender may, at any time and from time to time, elect, by notice in writing to the Borrower, to waive, reduce, or limit the collection of any sums in excess of those lawfully collectible as interest, rather than accept such sums as a prepayment of the principal balance then outstanding. It is the intention of the parties that the Borrower does not intend or expect to pay, nor does the Lender intend or expect to charge or collect any interest under this Note greater than the highest non-usurious rate of interest which may be charged under applicable law.
6.11 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. THE BORROWER HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY, INTENTIONALLY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ALL RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY LITIGATION BASED ON THIS NOTE, OR ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THIS NOTE OR ANY OTHER TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS, OR ANY COURSE OF CONDUCT, COURSE OF DEALING, STATEMENTS (WHETHER VERBAL OR WRITTEN) OR ACTIONS OF OR BETWEEN ANY PARTY HERETO, AND THE BORROWER AGREES AND CONSENTS TO THE GRANTING TO LENDER OF RELIEF FROM ANY STAY ORDER WHICH MIGHT BE ENTERED BY ANY COURT AGAINST LENDER AND TO ASSIST LENDER IN OBTAINING SUCH RELIEF. THIS PROVISION IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR LENDER ACCEPTING THIS NOTE FROM THE BORROWER. THE BORROWER’S REASONABLE RELIANCE UPON SUCH INDUCEMENT I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGED.
6.12 Remedies, Characterizations, Other Obligations, Breaches and Injunctive Relief. The remedies provided in this Note shall be cumulative and in addition to all other remedies available under this Note, at law or in equity.
6.13 Specific Shall Not Limit General; Construction. No specific provision contained in this Note shall limit or modify any more general provision contained herein. This Note shall be deemed to be jointly drafted by the Borrower and the Lender and shall not be construed against any person as the drafter hereof.
6.14 Failure or Indulgence Not Waiver. No failure or delay on the part of this Note in the exercise of any power, right or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or privilege preclude other or further exercise thereof or of any other right, power or privilege.
6.15 Notice. Notice shall be given to each party at the address indicated in the preamble or at such other address as provided to the other party in writing.
