No waiver of any non-payment or other default hereunder shall be considered valid unless in writing and signed by Holder, and no such waiver shall be deemed a waiver of any subsequent non-payment or default, irrespective of whether such non-payment or other default shall be of the same or similar nature.
This Note may not be amended or modified, nor shall any waiver of any of the provisions hereof be effective, except by an instrument in writing executed by Holder.
