LIQUIDITY PROVIDER'S OBLIGATION TO MAKE ADVANCES
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE OBLIGATIONS OF THE LIQUIDITY PROVIDER TO MAKE ADVANCES HEREUNDER, AND THE BORROWER'S RIGHTS TO DELIVER NOTICES OF BORROWING REQUESTING THE MAKING OF ADVANCES HEREUNDER, SHALL BE UNCONDITIONAL AND IRREVOCABLE, AND SHALL BE PAID OR PERFORMED, IN EACH CASE STRICTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Liability of the Liquidity Provider
(a) Neither the Liquidity Provider nor any of its officers, employees or directors shall be liable or responsible for: (i) the use which may be made of the Advances or any acts or omissions of the Borrower or any beneficiary or transferee in connection therewith; (ii) the validity, sufficiency or genuineness of documents, or of any endorsement thereon, even if such documents should prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, fraudulent or forged; or (iii) the making of Advances by the Liquidity Provider against delivery of a Notice of Borrowing and other documents which do not comply with the terms hereof; provided, however, that the Borrower shall have a claim against the Liquidity Provider, and the Liquidity Provider shall be liable to the Borrower, to the extent of any damages suffered by the Borrower that were the result of (A) the Liquidity Provider’s willful misconduct or gross negligence in determining whether documents presented hereunder comply with the terms hereof or (B) any breach by the Liquidity Provider of any of the terms of this Agreement or the Intercreditor Agreement, including, but not limited to, the Liquidity Provider’s failure to make lawful payment hereunder after the delivery to it by the Borrower of a Notice of Borrowing complying with the terms and conditions hereof. In no event, however, shall the Liquidity Provider be liable on any theory of liability for any special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (including, without limitation, loss of profits, business or anticipated savings).
In the event the Agreement (or any portion thereof) is terminated in accordance with this Article II, the Sellers shall be responsible for engaging one or more qualified replacement providers of the Services of the Serviced Appointments that are subject to such termination (each, a “Replacement Provider”), which may be any Seller, any other member of the Seller Group or any third party acceptable to the Sellers. Upon request by the Sellers, the Purchasers shall provide the Sellers with reasonable assistance in marketing the Services subject to such termination to potential third party Replacement Providers, including by providing any information reasonably requested by the Sellers; provided, that any potential third party Replacement Provider shall have executed a customary confidentiality agreement before any confidential information of the Purchasers is disclosed by the Sellers to such potential third party Replacement Provider.
(a) The Servicer shall establish and maintain, in the name of the Trustee, on behalf of the Trust, for the benefit of the Series 1999-7 Certificateholders and the Cash Collateral Depositor, as their interests appear herein, a "Sellers Collateral Account" and a "Bank Collateral Account", each of which shall be one or more Eligible Deposit Accounts, each bearing a designation clearly indicating that the funds deposited therein are held for the benefit of the Series 1999-7 Certificateholders and the Cash Collateral Depositor. The Sellers Collateral Account and the Bank Collateral Account are collectively referred to as the "Cash Collateral Account". The Trustee shall possess all right, title and interest in all funds on deposit from time to time in the Cash Collateral Account and in all proceeds thereof. The Cash Collateral Account shall be under the sole dominion and control of the Trustee for the benefit of the Series 1999-7 Certificateholders and the Cash Collateral Depositor. The interest of the Cash Collateral Depositor in the Cash Collateral Account shall be subordinated to the interests of the Series 1999-7 Certificateholders as provided herein and in the Loan Agreement. If at any time any of the accounts comprising the Cash Collateral Account ceases to be an Eligible Deposit Account, the Trustee (or the Servicer on its behalf) shall within 10 Business Days (or such longer period, not to exceed 30 calendar days, as to which each Rating Agency may consent) establish a new account meeting the conditions specified above as an Eligible Deposit Account, and shall transfer any cash and/or any investments to such new account. The Trustee, at the direction of the Servicer, shall (i) on the Closing Date, deposit in the Cash Collateral Account the proceeds of the advance to be made on such date by the Cash Collateral Depositor under the Loan Agreement, (ii) make withdrawals from the Cash Collateral Account from time to time in an amount up to the Available Cash Collateral Amount at such time, for the purposes and in the manner set forth in paragraphs (c) through (i) below, and (iii) on each Distribution Date prior to the termination of the Cash Collateral Account make a deposit into the Cash Collateral Account in the amount specified in, and otherwise in accordance with, Section 4.09(j). All withdrawals from the Cash Collateral Account shall be made in the priority and in the manner set forth below. The Cash Collateral Depositor shall not be entitled to reimbursement from the Trust Assets for any withdrawals from the Cash Collateral Account except as specifically provided in this Series Supplement.
Reliance by Administrative Agent, L/C Issuer and Lenders
The Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer and the Lenders shall be entitled to rely and act upon any notices (including telephonic Committed Loan Notices and Swing Line Loan Notices) purportedly given by or on behalf of the Borrower even if (i) such notices were not made in a manner specified herein, were incomplete or were not preceded or followed by any other form of notice specified herein, or (ii) the terms thereof, as understood by the recipient, varied from any confirmation thereof. The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer, each Lender and the Related Parties of each of them from all losses, costs, expenses and liabilities resulting from the reliance by such Person on each notice purportedly given by or on behalf of the Borrower. All telephonic notices to and other telephonic communications with the Administrative Agent may be recorded by the Administrative Agent, and each of the parties hereto hereby consents to such recording.
Role of Letter of Credit Issuer
Each Lender and the Borrower agree that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, the Letter of Credit Issuer shall not have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. None of the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Affiliates nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of the Letter of Credit Issuer shall be liable to any Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of the Required Revolving Credit Lenders; (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit or Issuer Document. The Borrower hereby assumes all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude the Borrower’s pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. None of the Letter of Credit Issuer, the Administrative Agent, any of their respective Affiliates nor any correspondent, participant or assignee of the Letter of Credit Issuer shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in Section 3.3(e); provided that anything in such Section to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrower may have a claim against the Letter of Credit Issuer, and the Letter of Credit Issuer may be liable to the Borrower, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential or exemplary, damages suffered by the Borrower which the Borrower proves were caused by the Letter of Credit Issuer’s willful misconduct or gross negligence or the Letter of Credit Issuer’s willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Letter of Credit Issuer may accept documents that appear on their face to be in order, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and the Letter of Credit Issuer shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason.
Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent and Other Lenders
Each Lender expressly acknowledges that neither the Administrative Agent nor the Collateral Agent nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates has made any representations or warranties to it and that no act by the Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent hereinafter taken, including any review of the affairs of the Borrower, any Guarantor or any other Credit Party, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or warranty by the Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent to any Lender, the Swingline Lender or any Letter of Credit Issuer. Each Lender, the Swingline Lender and each Letter of Credit Issuer represents to the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of and investigation into the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Borrower, Guarantor and other Credit Party and made its own decision to make its Loans hereunder and enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also represents that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis, appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents, and to make such investigation as it deems necessary to inform itself as to the business, operations, property, financial and other condition and creditworthiness of the Borrower, any Guarantor and any other Credit Party. Except for notices, reports and other documents expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent hereunder, neither the Administrative Agent nor the Collateral Agent shall have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the business, assets, operations, properties, financial condition, prospects or creditworthiness of the Borrower, any Guarantor or any other Credit Party that may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or Collateral Agent any of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or Affiliates.
For purposes of this Section, the term “Lender” includes each Issuing Bank and the term “Applicable Law” includes FATCA.
Additional Issuing Banks
The Borrower may, at any time and from time to time with the consent of the Administrative Agent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) and such Lender, designate one or more additional Lenders to act as an issuing bank under the terms of this Agreement. Any Lender designated as an issuing bank pursuant to this paragraph (k) shall be deemed to be an “Issuing Bank” (in addition to being a Lender) in respect of Letters of Credit issued or to be issued by such Lender, and, with respect to such Letters of Credit, such term shall thereafter apply to the other Issuing Bank and such Lender.
