Waivers. Maker and any other person who signs, makes, guarantees or endorses this Note, to the extent allowed by law, waive presentment, demand for payment, protest, notice of dishonor, notice of intent to accelerate the maturity of this Note, notice of acceleration of the maturity of this Note, diligence in collecting, grace, notice and protest and agree to one or more extensions for any period or periods of time and partial payments before or after maturity without prejudice to theholder.

Usury. All agreements between the undersigned and the holder hereof, whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral are hereby limited so that in no contingency, whether by reason of demand for payment or acceleration of the maturity hereof or otherwise, shall the interest contracted for, charged or received by the holder hereof exceed the maximum amount permissible under applicable law. In particular, this section means (among other things) that Maker does not agree or intend to pay, and Payee does not agree or intend to contract for, charge, collect, take, reserve or receive (collectively referred to herein as "Charge or Collect"), any amount in the nature of interest or in the nature of a fee for this loan, which would in any way or event (including demand, prepayment, or acceleration) cause Payee to charge or collect more for this loan that the maximum Payee would be permitted to charge or collect by Federal law or the laws of the State of Nevada (as applicable). Any such excess interest or unauthorized fee shall, instead of anything stated to the contrary, be applied first to reduce the principal balance of this loan, and when the principal has been paid in full, be refunded to Maker. The right to accelerate maturity of sums due under this Note does not include the right to accelerate any interest that has not otherwise accrued on the date of such acceleration, and Payee does not intend to charge or collect any unearned interest in the event of acceleration. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Payee for the use, forbearance or detention of sums due hereunder shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of the loan evidenced by this Note until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest charged to the account of the loan evidenced hereby does not exceed the applicable usury ceiling. Payee may delay or forgo enforcing any of its rights or remedies under this Note without losing them. If for any circumstances whatsoever, interest would otherwise be payable to the holder hereof in excess of the maximum lawful amount the interest payable to the holder hereof shall be reduced to the amount permitted under applicable law; and if for any circumstances, the holder hereof shall ever receive anything of value deemed interest by applicable law in excess of the maximum lawful amount, an amount equal to any excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal hereof and such excess shall be refunded to Maker. This Section shall control all agreements between Maker and the holder hereof.
Collateral. The indebtedness evidenced by this Promissory Note shall be secured pursuant to that certain Security Agreement of even date herewith, executed by Maker in favor of Payee.

Severability. The inclusion of specific default provisions or rights of Payee shall not preclude Payee's rights to declare payment of this Note on its terms pursuant to common law of any applicable statute. If any part of this Note cannot be enforced, this fact will not affect the remainder of the Note that is enforceable.
