Without limitation upon the foregoing, nothing contained herein shall be construed to grant any rights to the Borrower or to impose any duties on the Lender that would not have been granted or imposed by this Agreement or by applicable law in the absence of this Section 14. 15 Proceeds and Expenses of Dispositions.

Lender may, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, revoke Borrower's right to sell Inventory free and clear of Lender's security interest therein. 19 No Lien Termination without Release. In recognition of the Lender's right to have its attorneys' fees and other expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement secured by the Collateral, notwithstanding payment in full of all Obligations by Borrower, Lender shall not be required to record any terminations or satisfactions of any of Lender's liens on the Collateral unless and until Borrower and all Guarantors has executed and delivered to Lender a general release in the form of Exhibit D hereto. Borrower understands that this provision constitutes a waiver of its rights under ss.9-513 of the UCC. 20 Account Stated. Lender shall render to Borrower a statement setting forth the transactions arising hereunder. Each statement shall be considered correct and binding upon Borrower, absent manifest error, as an account stated, except to the extent that Lender receives, within thirty (30) days after the mailing of such statement, written notice from Borrower of any specific exceptions by Borrower to that statement. 21 Retention of Records.
