Section 2.4.    Procedure.

Until the principal and interest of each Mortgage Loan is paid in full, unless this Agreement is sooner terminated pursuant to the terms hereof, and subject to all Applicable Requirements, the Subservicer shall:

(a)Collect from Mortgagors applicable payments of principal and interest, and applicable deposits for taxes, assessments and other public charges that are generally escrowed, hazard insurance premiums, flood insurance premiums as required or private mortgage insurance premiums, optional insurance premiums, and all other items, as they become due;

(b)Accept payments of principal and interest and Escrow Payments only in accordance with the Mortgage Loan and Applicable Requirements. Deficiencies or excesses in payments shall be accepted and applied, or accepted and not applied, or rejected in accordance with Applicable Requirements;

(c)Apply all installment payments and Escrow Payments collected from the Mortgagor, and maintain permanent mortgage account records capable of producing, in chronological order: the date, amount, distribution, installment due date, or other transactions affecting the amounts due from or to the Mortgagor and indicating the latest outstanding balances of principal, escrow accounts, advances, and unapplied payments;

(d)Pending disbursement, segregate and deposit funds collected in one or more Custodial Accounts or Escrow Accounts, as applicable, maintained at an insured financial institution approved by the Owner/Servicer in such manner as to show the custodial nature thereof, and so that Investor and each separate Mortgagor whose funds have been deposited into such account or accounts will be individually insured under the rules of the FDIC. The Subservicer’s records shall show the respective interest of Investor and each Mortgagor in all such Custodial Accounts and Escrow Accounts. All Custodial Accounts and Escrow Accounts shall be maintained by and carried in records of the Subservicer as "trustee" for the Owner/Servicer and/or Investors and/or Mortgagors, except as may otherwise be required by Applicable Requirements;

(e)Pay interest on Mortgagors’ escrow accounts if any Applicable Requirement requires the payment of interest on such amounts.

For all Mortgage Loans providing for the payment to and collection by the Subservicer of Escrow Payments for taxes, ground rents, or such other recurring charges, the Subservicer shall remit payments for such charges before any penalty date. The Subservicer assumes responsibility for the timely remittance of all such payments and will hold harmless and indemnify the Owner/Servicer and Investor from all penalties, loss, or damage

19





resulting from the Subservicer’s failure to discharge said responsibility subsequent to the Sale Date of the particular Mortgage Loan by the Subservicer. The Subservicer shall promptly notify the Owner/Servicer if it becomes aware of any missing or erroneous information with respect to the Mortgage Loans that is preventing or impeding the Subservicer from timely meeting tax or other payments obligations with respect to the Mortgage Loans or from otherwise meeting the Subservicer’s obligations under this Agreement. Within thirty (30) days of each Transfer Date, the Subservicer shall notify the Owner/Servicer in writing identifying the related Mortgage Loans for which assignable life-of-loan tax service or flood service contracts have not been provided to the Subservicer in connection with the servicing transfer.

(g)For all Mortgage Loans for which no provision has been made for the payment to and collection by the Subservicer of Escrow Payments, the Subservicer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to determine whether any such payments are made by the Mortgagor in a manner and at a time that avoids the loss of the Mortgaged Property due to a tax sale or the foreclosure of a tax lien and otherwise satisfies Applicable Requirements. The Subservicer assumes full responsibility for the payment of all such bills within such time period and shall effect payments of all such bills irrespective of the Mortgagor’s faithful performance in the payment of same or the making of the Escrow Payments. The Subservicer shall make Servicing Advances to effect such payments and shall seek reimbursement of such Servicing Advances on the Owner/Servicer’s behalf from the Mortgagor in accordance with the applicable Mortgage Loan documents or otherwise as permitted by Applicable Requirements.

(h)When a Mortgagor’s Escrow Payments are insufficient to pay taxes, assessments, mortgage insurance premiums, hazard or flood insurance premiums, or other items due therefrom, pay such amounts as a Servicing Advance and seek reimbursement from the Mortgagor. Unless collected by the Subservicer from the Mortgagor prior to the Subservicer’s next monthly invoice, the Owner/Servicer shall reimburse the Subservicer for all outstanding deficiencies, and any other Servicing Advances made by the Subservicer to protect the security of the Owner/Servicer and Investor, in accordance with Section 4.1 hereof;

(i)Maintain applicable private mortgage insurance, or optional insurance, as applicable, in effect on the Transfer Date; provided, however, that the Subservicer shall not be obligated to make a Servicing Advance for payment of any optional insurance premium;






(j)Ensure that improvements on a Mortgaged Property are insured pursuant to Investor requirements by a hazard insurance policy and, if required by Applicable requirements, a flood insurance policy;

(k)Comply with any and all procedures outlined in any applicable Agency Guidelines and any applicable guidelines promulgated by a Governmental Authority, which guidelines shall control in the event of any conflict with the terms of this Agreement;

20






(l)In accordance with Applicable Requirements, report Mortgagor payment history to consumer reporting agencies with respect to the period following the related Sale Date;

(m)With respect to any MERS Mortgage Loan, update all required MERS fields, with the cooperation of the Owner/Servicer, as necessary and comply with all applicable requirements of MERS; and

(n)For each Mortgage Loan, maintain, at a minimum, copies or images of the Mortgage Servicing File, including original collateral, origination and credit documentation with respect to such Mortgage Loan as may be required by applicable Agency Guidelines and provide copies of the same to the Owner/Servicer promptly upon request.

Section 2.5.    Other Services.

Subject to Applicable Requirements, the Subservicer shall be responsible for further safeguarding Investor’s interest in each Mortgaged Property as follows:

(a)The Subservicer shall identify a relationship manager with respect to the Mortgage Loans, who shall serve as the principal point of contact for the Owner/Servicer for purposes of answering questions with respect to the Subservicing pursuant to this Agreement.

The Subservicer will provide the Owner/Servicer with a contact for inquiries regarding the Subservicer’s financial condition and its status as an eligible servicer in good standing with each Agency;

(b)The Subservicer shall (i) promptly notify the Owner/Servicer but in no event later than two (2) Business Days of following receipt from any Agency, Insurer or Governmental Authority of an inquiry relating to an alleged violation of Applicable Requirements with respect to any Mortgage Loans that could reasonably result in a sanction, fee or other liability to the Owner/Servicer or otherwise materially adversely affect the Owner/Servicer or the Subservicer’s ability to perform its obligations under this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any allegations of discrimination by the Subservicer and any civil investigative demand or request for information, and shall promptly provide a copy of any such allegation, demand or inquiry to the Owner/Servicer, and (ii) cooperate fully with the Owner/Servicer to respond promptly and completely to any such allegations or inquiries and similarly to any such allegations or inquiries received by the Owner/Servicer. The Subservicer shall promptly provide the Owner/Servicer with notice but in no event later than two (2) Business Days of learning that an investigation of the Subservicer's servicing practices by any Governmental Authority has determined that material deficiencies in servicing performance or violation of Applicable Requirements has occurred; provided, however, that the Subservicer shall provide prompt notice but in no event later than two (2) Business Days to the





Owner/Servicer if (i) the Subservicer reasonably believes that a Governmental Authority is reasonably likely to suspend, revoke or limit any license or approval necessary for the Subservicer to service the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement or (ii) a special investigation or non-routine exam of the Subservicer commenced by a Governmental Authority is reasonably likely to materially and adversely affect the Mortgage Loans. The Subservicer shall then periodically (but not less frequently than monthly) confer with the Owner/Servicer to advise the Owner/Servicer of the status of any such

21





investigation. In addition, within two (2) Business Days of the Subservicer's receipt of the reports or findings with respect to any such investigation, the Subservicer shall deliver to the Owner/Servicer any such reports and/or findings relating to any material deficiencies in servicing performance or violations of Applicable Requirements.

The recovery of such advances shall be available to first reimburse the Subservicer for unreimbursed Servicing Advances funded by the Subservicer and the balance of such recovery shall be available to reimburse the Owner/Servicer for unreimbursed advances previously funded or reimbursed by the Owner/Servicer. The Subservicer shall provide the Owner/Servicer with a detailed loan-level report in a format mutually acceptable to the parties setting forth on a loan-level and aggregate basis all P&I Advances and Servicing Advances made or reimbursed during the related reporting period and the advances outstanding on a cumulative basis for each Mortgage Loan. The Subservicer shall promptly notify the Owner/Servicer in the event it has determined that any outstanding advances made with respect to a Mortgage Loan are nonrecoverable from related proceeds on the Mortgage Loan and shall take all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Owner/Servicer is fully reimbursed for outstanding P&I Advances and Servicing Advances upon the liquidation of the related Mortgage Loan. The Subservicer shall cooperate in good faith with the Owner/Servicer to pursue full reimbursement of outstanding P&I Advances and Servicing Advances and shall immediately notify the Owner/Servicer upon becoming aware that any such reimbursement is at risk.

The Subservicer shall not, without the prior written consent of the Owner/Servicer, solicit Mortgagors for accident, health, life, property and casualty insurance, or any other non-mortgage related products or services, except for products or processes that facilitate normal servicing activities, such as "phonepay", portfolio defense or automatic payment plans. Only upon receipt of the prior written consent of the Owner/Servicer and in accordance with Applicable Requirements, shall the Subservicer be entitled to solicit individual Mortgagors for accident, health, life, property and casualty insurance and any other non-mortgage related products or services that the Subservicer and the Owner/Servicer deem appropriate. The Subservicer shall retain any resulting commission or other income in such amounts not to exceed those approved by the Owner/Servicer. The Subservicer covenants to the Owner/Servicer that it shall not solicit any Mortgagor for prepaid single-premium credit life, credit disability, credit unemployment, credit property, accident or health insurance, or any other single-premium insurance product. The Subservicer may engage in





solicitation activities not expressly prohibited by this Section. The Subservicer and Owner/Servicer shall negotiate in good faith regarding whether the Owner/Servicer shall grant the Subservicer its prior written consent to solicit Mortgagors for hazard/casualty insurance.

The Subservicer acknowledges that the Mortgage Loans may include mortgage loans modified under HAMP and Mortgage Loans that may now or in the future be subject to other local, state or federal government mortgage-related programs that currently exist or may exist in the future. The Subservicer confirms that it is aware of the special requirements for such Mortgage Loans that currently exist or may exist in the future and the Subservicer agrees to assume the additional responsibilities associated with servicing such Mortgage Loans and to take such actions as are necessary to comply with such programs. With respect to each Mortgage Loan subject to a trial payment period pursuant to HAMP as of the related Sale Date, the Subservicer shall take all actions required of a servicer participating in HAMP to complete such trial payment period and implement the related loan modification. The Subservicer will cooperate in good faith in connection with any audit, inspection, review, or investigation of the Subservicer’s compliance with or reporting under HAMP or other government program related to the Mortgage Loans.

Section 2.15. Process Changes and Other Services; Statements of Work.

From time to time during the term of this Agreement, the Owner/Servicer may submit a request, in writing, to the Subservicer to implement process changes and/or perform services in relation to the Subservicing that are not contemplated by or sufficiently described in this Agreement. Upon receipt of such request, the Subservicer shall cooperate in good faith with the Owner/Servicer to enter into a mutually acceptable agreement for implementation of such request (such agreement, a "Statement of Work"), which shall include the time frame for implementation and, if such request involves significant additional cost to the Subservicer, any additional charges to be paid by the Owner/Servicer in connection with such request. Upon the due execution by both parties, the Statement of Work shall constitute an amendment to this Agreement without further action on the part of either party, and such additional services shall be deemed Subservicing requirements hereunder. The Subservicer shall perform the services set forth in the Statement of Work in the manner provided therein and in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and the Owner/Servicer shall pay for any agreed upon cost, if any, of the implementation and any additional services resulting therefrom in accordance with the terms of the Statement of Work and this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the parties understand and agree that a Statement of Work shall not be required to implement (a) the services already enumerated or contemplated herein or (b) other services or projects previously commenced by the Subservicer on behalf of the Owner/Servicer.

Section 2.16. Pending and Completed Loss Mitigation.

Mitigation agreements in accordance with Applicable Requirements, including without limitation any trial or permanent loan modifications made under HAMP, and
(c)
the Subservicer shall correctly apply payments with respect to Mortgage Loans for which the

34





related Mortgagor is a debtor in a case under Chapter 13 of the United States Bankruptcy Code of 1986, as amended, at the time of the applicable Sale Date.

Section 2.17. Disaster Recovery Plan.

The Subservicer shall maintain its current business continuity plan ("BCP") that addresses the continuation of services if an incident (act or omission) impairs or disrupts the Subservicer’s obligation to provide the services contemplated under this Agreement. The Subservicer agrees to provide the Owner/Servicer (and any applicable regulatory agencies having jurisdiction over the Owner/Servicer) with a copy of its entire BCP upon the Owner/Servicer’s request. The Subservicer warrants that the BCP conforms to Applicable Requirements and generally accepted industry standards for business continuity planning (collectively, the "BCP Standards"), which include, but are not limited to, recovery strategy, loss of critical personnel, restoring access to documents and data to the Owner/Servicer, documented recovery plans covering all areas of operations pursuant to this Agreement, vital records protection, and testing plans. The Subservicer will maintain and test the BCP at regular intervals (no less frequently than annually) to ensure that the BCP complies with BCP Standards and shall provide reporting of the test results to the Owner/Servicer upon request. The Subservicer will comply with the BCP during the term of this Agreement. The Subservicer shall notify the Owner/Servicer of any material modifications to the BCP.

The Subservicer shall provide disaster recovery and backup capabilities and facilities through which it will be able to perform its obligations under this Agreement with minimal disruptions or delays. The recovery strategy shall, at a minimum, provide for recovery after short and long term disruptions in facilities, environmental support, workforce availability and data processing equipment. If requested by the Owner/Servicer, the Subservicer must provide evidence of its capability to meet any applicable regulatory requirement concerning business continuity applicable to the Owner/Servicer or the Subservicer. In the event that the Owner/Servicer’s internal requirements concerning business continuity diverge from those of the Subservicer, the parties shall agree on a plan of enhancement with the reasonable, actual and documented out-of-pocket or internally allocated, as applicable, costs of the enhancement to the BCP to be paid by the Owner/Servicer.

The Subservicer shall notify the Owner/Servicer immediately of the occurrence of any catastrophic event that affects or could affect the Subservicer’s performance of the services contemplated under this Agreement.

The BCP shall include appropriate provisions to ensure the continued availability of critical third-party services and to ensure an orderly transition to new service providers should that become necessary. The Subservicer shall require that any of its Vendors, Off-shore Vendors and Default Firms providing critical services with respect to this Agreement provide copies of their own business





continuity plans to the Subservicer and the Subservicer shall make such plans available to the Owner/Servicer upon request.

ARTICLE III
AGREEMENTS OF THE OWNER/SERVICER

Section 3.1.    Documents.

(a)With respect to any Transfer Date, with respect to any Mortgage Loan which is not a Prior Ditech Serviced Loan, the Owner/Servicer shall deliver the Servicing Transfer Procedures to the prior subservicer and shall request that such subservicer comply with the Servicing Transfer Procedures in all material respects, including delivering the Mortgage Servicing Files and/or servicing records necessary to provide current data with respect to the Mortgage Loans in a manner that is compatible with the Subservicer’s system and Applicable Requirements. The Subservicer and the Owner/Servicer shall comply with all Applicable Requirements with respect to servicing transfers, including the CFPB’s rules and/or guidelines with respect to servicing transfers, including without limitation its Bulletin 2014-1 issued on August 19, 2014, which may be amended or updated from time to time. The Subservicer and the Owner/Servicer shall provide all reasonable cooperation and assistance as may be requested by the other party in connection with compliance with such requirements, rules and/or guidelines. The Subservicer and the Owner/Servicer shall cooperate after the applicable Sale Date to promptly resolve all customer complaints, disputes and inquiries related to activities that occurred prior to such Sale Date or in connection with the transfer of servicing.





With respect to any Mortgage Loan which is not a Prior Ditech Serviced Loan, the Owner/Servicer acknowledges that the Owner/Servicer may be subject to certain provisions of the CFPB Stip Order solely as it relates to the transfer of servicing responsibilities from a prior servicer (which

38






is not the Subservicer) to the Subservicer where the applicable mortgage loans are subject to loss mitigation.

(b)With respect to any Mortgage Loan which is not a Prior Ditech Serviced Loan, pursuant to the Servicing Transfer Procedures and Applicable Requirements, prior to each Transfer Date, the Subservicer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the Servicer Transfer Data and the Mortgage Servicing Files from the prior subservicer. The Subservicer may undertake an audit of a sampling of the Servicer Transfer Data and the Mortgage Servicing Files to determine the existence therein of any materially inaccurate or incomplete or missing data, information or documents. If the Subservicer determines, in its sole discretion, that there are material deficiencies in Servicer Transfer Data or in the related Mortgage Servicing File, the Owner/Servicer and the Subservicer shall cooperate in good faith to cure or correct such deficiencies reasonably necessary for the Subservicer to service the related Mortgage Loans pursuant to this Agreement. For any Mortgage Loan which is not a Prior Ditech Serviced Loan, the Owner/Servicer may elect to (a) cure or correct any such deficiencies in the Servicer Transfer Data or the related Mortgage Servicing Files, at the expense of the Owner/Servicer or (b) request that the Subservicer cure or correct such items, in which case the reasonable, actual and documented out-of-pocket or internally allocated, as applicable, expenses incurred by the Subservicer in connection with such cure or correction shall be reimbursed by the Owner/Servicer. For any Mortgage Loan which is a Prior Ditech Serviced Loan, the Subservicer shall cure or correct such items and all out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with such cure or correction shall be at the expense of the Subservicer without reimbursement. Solely with respect to any Mortgage Loan which is not a Prior Ditech Serviced Loan, to the extent the Owner/Servicer declines to cure or correct such deficiencies or engage the Subservicer to do so on its behalf or, upon reasonable effort, such deficiencies are not able to be cured or corrected, then the Subservicer will have the right to reject the obligation to subservice the related Mortgage Loan.

(c)The Subservicer shall maintain the Mortgage Servicing Files and the Mortgage Loan Documents in its possession pursuant to Applicable Requirements and shall maintain a record of its handling of such documents and files. Any Mortgage Loan Documents that are in the possession of the Subservicer shall be held in secure and fireproof facilities or storage areas in accordance with customary standards for the custody of similar documents and Applicable Requirements. The Subservicer shall conduct periodic audits of the Mortgage Servicing Files and Mortgage Loan Documents in its possession, and shall allow the Owner/Servicer, its Affiliates and its agents to conduct such audits, from time to time, to confirm the Subservicer’s recordkeeping, storage and security practices with respect to such files and documents. The Subservicer shall only release Mortgage Servicing Files and Mortgage Loan Documents in its possession pursuant to this Agreement and Applicable Requirements and shall deliver any such documents within three (3) Business Days of a request. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, in connection with an examination or any request by any Agency, the Subservicer shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to release any requested Mortgage Servicing Files and/or Mortgage Loan Documents in its





possession pursuant to this Agreement and Applicable Requirements and shall deliver any such documents within the time frame set forth by such Agency. Any documents or files that are released by the Subservicer shall be properly tracked and pursued to the extent such documents or files are not returned to the Subservicer or to the Custodian. The Subservicer shall provide the Owner/Servicer with any tracking information

39





related to documents or files that have been released by the Subservicer promptly upon request. The Subservicer shall cooperate in good faith with the Owner/Servicer in connection with clearing any document exceptions with any third parties consistent with Applicable Requirements and the direction of the Owner/Servicer.

(d)Solely with respect to any Mortgage Loan which is not a Prior Ditech Serviced Loan, the Owner/Servicer shall cooperate and shall cause the prior subservicer to cooperate with the Subservicer in providing timely responses to inquiries from Mortgagors to the extent information provided with respect to the Mortgage Loans is insufficient to allow the Subservicer to adequately respond without such cooperation.

Section 3.2.    Pay-off of Mortgage Loan; Release of Mortgage Loan Documents.

(a)Upon pay-off of a Mortgage Loan, the Subservicer will request the applicable Mortgage Loan Documents from the Custodian, Investor, or the Owner/Servicer, as the case may be, and upon receipt of same will prepare the appropriate discharge/satisfaction documents, and shall request execution of any document necessary to satisfy the Mortgage Loan or shall execute such document pursuant to a limited power of attorney to be provided by the Owner/Servicer to the Subservicer in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C. The Subservicer shall prepare, execute, and record all satisfactions and releases in accordance with the timeframes and requirements of all Applicable Requirements, and the Subservicer shall reimburse the Owner/Servicer for any losses it may incur as a result of the Subservicer’s failure to act in accordance with such Applicable Requirements.

(b)In the event the Subservicer prepares a satisfaction or release of a Mortgage without having obtained payment in full (excluding payments in full or other satisfactions as provided for in a Loss Mitigation plan permitted under Applicable Requirements) of the indebtedness secured by the Mortgage or should it otherwise prejudice any enforcement right the related Investor may have under the mortgage instruments, the Subservicer, upon written demand, shall (i) use commercially reasonable efforts to expunge such satisfaction or release or
(ii) if such satisfaction or release cannot be expunged by the Subservicer in such timeframe required under Applicable Requirements, the Subservicer shall remit to the Investor or indemnify and reimburse the Owner/Servicer for all amounts required to be paid by the Owner/Servicer under Applicable Requirements as a result of such satisfaction or release. The Subservicer shall maintain a fidelity bond insuring the Subservicer against any loss it may sustain with respect to any Mortgage Loan not satisfied in accordance with Applicable Requirements.

(c)From time to time and as appropriate for the Subservicing (including, without limitation, insurance claims) or foreclosure of each Mortgage Loan, the Owner/Servicer shall cause the Custodian to, upon request of the Subservicer and only upon delivery to the Custodian of an





acceptable servicing receipt signed by an authorized employee of the Subservicer, release the portion of the Mortgage Loan Documents held by the Custodian to the Subservicer. If any Mortgage Loan Documents are to be released to a third-party attorney for purposes of facilitating foreclosure, bankruptcy, or litigation proceedings on behalf of the Subservicer or the Investor, the Subservicer must obtain a commercially acceptable attorney bailee agreement from such attorney, a copy which shall be provided to the Custodian promptly following receipt thereof.

40





(d)The Subservicer shall return the related Mortgage Loan Documents to the Custodian within five (5) Business Days following the time such documents are no longer needed by the Subservicer, unless the Mortgage Loan has been liquidated and the liquidation proceeds relating to the Mortgage Loan have been deposited in the Custodial Account. The Subservicer shall indemnify the Owner/Servicer pursuant to Section 7.01 for any loss or damage of such Mortgage Loan Documents by the Subservicer or its agents, Vendors, Off-shore Vendors or Default Firms.

Section 3.3.    Notices.

(a)The Owner/Servicer shall cause to be provided servicing transfer notices and any other similar notices to the related Mortgagors in a timely manner as may be required under Applicable Requirements, including the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act. Within fifteen
(15) days following each Transfer Date, the Subservicer shall deliver to each related Mortgagor a "Welcome Letter" in accordance with Applicable Requirements. Notwithstanding the above, the Owner/Servicer, the Subservicer, and the prior subservicer may agree to send in accordance with Applicable Requirements a joint notification to the related Mortgagors regarding the transfer of the servicing function to the Subservicer. The Subservicer and the Owner/Servicer agree that the form of any notice sent to Mortgagors under this Section 3.3 shall be subject to approval by the Owner/Servicer and the Subservicer.

(b)The Subservicer shall furnish to each Mortgagor each notice (including privacy notices) required to be provided to such Mortgagors in accordance with Applicable Requirements and in form required by the Owner/Servicer.

(c)The Subservicer shall include in the related Mortgage Servicing File a copy of each notice furnished to a Mortgagor pursuant to this Section 3.3.

(d)Notwithstanding the foregoing, except as required by Applicable Requirements, no applicable notification shall be required pursuant to this Section 3.3 to the extent that the Subservicer is already acting as the Subservicer with respect to the Mortgage Loans.

Section 3.4.    Mortgagor Requests.

The Subservicer shall process requests for partial releases, easements, substitutions, division, subordination, alterations, waivers of security instrument terms, or similar matters in accordance with Applicable Requirements and the Subservicer shall notify the Owner/Servicer of such requests and the outcomes of such requests.

Section 3.5.    Power of Attorney.






Prior to the first Sale Date, the Owner/Servicer shall execute a mutually agreed upon number of limited powers of attorney substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit C hereto and provide such original executed limited powers of attorney to the Subservicer for use in connection with the servicing activities contemplated in this Agreement.

Any failure of a party to comply with any obligation, covenant, agreement or condition contained in this Agreement may be waived by the party entitled to the benefits thereof only by a written instrument duly executed and delivered by the party granting such waiver, but such waiver or failure or delay to insist upon strict compliance with such obligation, covenant, agreement or condition or any waiver, failure or delay in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder or any single or partial exercise thereof shall not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any subsequent or other failure of compliance or preclude any other or further exercise thereof or any other right, power or privilege hereunder. The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law.

Section 9.9.    Binding Effect.

This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and their successors and assigns.

Section 9.10. Headings.

Headings of the Articles and Sections in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not be deemed to have any substantive effect.

Section 9.11. Force Majeure.

Each party will be excused from performance under this Agreement, except for any payment obligations for services that have been or are being performed hereunder, for any period and to the extent that it is prevented from performing, in whole or in part, as a result of delays caused by the other party or any act of God, war, civil disturbance, court order, labor dispute, or other cause beyond its reasonable control, including failure, fluctuations, or unavailability of heat, light, air conditioning, or telecommunications equipment. A party excused from performance pursuant to this Section shall exercise commercially reasonable efforts to continue to perform its obligations hereunder and shall thereafter continue with reasonable due diligence and good faith to remedy its inability to so perform, except that nothing herein shall obligate either party to settle a strike or labor dispute when it does not wish to do so. Such nonperformance will not be deemed a breach of this Agreement as long as the party uses commercially reasonable efforts to expeditiously remedy the problem causing such nonperformance and to execute its disaster recovery plan then in existence. If the failure of a party to perform under this Agreement as a result of a force majeure event exceeds fifteen (15) days, the other party may terminate this Agreement immediately without liability and the parties shall cooperate in good faith to facilitate the transfer of servicing to a successor servicer or subservicer





designated by the Owner/Servicer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the force majeure provisions set forth in the Agency Guidelines are more restrictive as they relate to the Owner/Servicer or the Subservicer, such provisions in the Agency Guidelines shall control in the event an Agency is an Investor.

59

(a)Each party acknowledges that it may, in the course of performing its responsibilities under this Agreement, be exposed to or acquire Confidential Information that is proprietary to or confidential to the other party, its Affiliates, their respective clients and investors or to third parties to whom the other party owes a duty of confidentiality. The party providing Confidential Information in each case shall be called the "Disclosing Party" and the party receiving the Confidential Information shall be called the "Recipient". With respect to all such Confidential Information, the Recipient shall (i) act in accordance and comply with all Applicable Requirements (including, without limitation, security and privacy laws with respect to its use of such Confidential Information), (ii) maintain, and shall require all third parties that receive Confidential Information from the Recipient as permitted hereunder to maintain, effective information security measures to protect Confidential Information from unauthorized disclosure or use, and (iii) provide the Disclosing Party with information regarding such security measures upon the reasonable request of the Disclosing Party and promptly provide the Disclosing Party with information regarding any failure of such security measures or any security breach. The Recipient shall hold the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in strict confidence, exercising no less care with respect to such Confidential Information than the level of care exercised with respect to the Recipient’s own similar Confidential Information and in no case less than a reasonable standard of care, and shall not copy, reproduce, summarize, quote, sell, assign, license, market, transfer or otherwise dispose of, give or disclose such information to third parties or use such information for any purposes other than the provision of the services to the Disclosing Party or as expressly permitted under the Ditech Agreements without the prior written authorization of the Disclosing Party. In addition, the Recipient shall not use the Confidential Information to make any contact with any of the parties identified in the Confidential Information without the prior authorization of the Disclosing Party, except in the course of performing its obligations under the terms of this Agreement.

(b)
The Recipient may disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information only
(i)to its and its Affiliates’ officers, directors, attorneys, accountants, employees, agents and representatives and, with respect to the Owner/Servicer only, rating agencies, consultants, bankers, financial advisors and potential financing sources (collectively, "Representatives") who need to know such Confidential Information in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Ditech Agreements (the "Transactions") and who are subject to a duty of confidentiality (contractual or otherwise) with respect to such Confidential Information, (ii) to those Persons within the Recipient’s organization directly involved in the Transactions, and who are bound by confidentiality terms substantially similar to the terms set forth herein, (iii) to the Recipient’s regulators and examiners, (iv) to defend itself in connection with a legal proceeding regarding the Transactions and (v) as required by Applicable Requirements. The Recipient shall be liable for any breach of its confidentiality obligations and the confidentiality obligations of its Representatives.






(c)The parties shall not, without the other party’s prior written authorization, publicize, disclose, or allow disclosure of any information about the other party, its present or former partners, managing directors, directors, officers, employees, agents or clients, its or their business and financial affairs, personnel matters, operating procedures, organization responsibilities, marketing matters and policies or procedures, with any reporter, author,

60





producer or similar Person or entity, or take any other action seeking to publicize or disclose any such information in any way likely to result in such information being made available to the general public in any form, including books, articles or writings of any other kind, as well as film, videotape, audiotape, or any other medium except as required by Applicable Requirements.

(d)The obligations under this Section 9.12 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

Section 9.13. Further Assurances.

Each of the Owner/Servicer and the Subservicer shall cooperate with and assist the other party as reasonably requested in connection with such other party’s duties and obligations under this Agreement and in connection therewith shall execute and deliver all such papers, documents and instruments as may be necessary and appropriate in furtherance thereof.

Section 9.14. Execution of Agreement.

This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in any number of counterparts. Each counterpart shall be deemed to be an original, and all such counterparts shall constitute one and the same instrument. This Agreement shall be deemed binding when executed by both the Owner/Servicer and the Subservicer. Telecopy or electronically transmitted signatures shall be deemed valid and binding to the same extent as the original.

Section 9.15. Publicity.

The Subservicer shall not issue any media releases, public announcements and public disclosures, relating to this Agreement or use the name or logo of the Owner/Servicer, including, without limitation, in promotional or marketing material or on a list of customers, without the prior written consent of the Owner/Servicer; provided, that nothing in this paragraph shall restrict compliance with this Agreement or any disclosure required by legal, accounting or regulatory requirements.

Section 9.16. Executory Contract.

Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, Subservicer acknowledges and agrees that, in the event it files bankruptcy under 11 U.S.C. § 101 et seq. (the "Bankruptcy Code"), this Agreement is an "executory contract" within the meaning of Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code and, therefore, Subservicer shall have no right to modify on any basis whatsoever, including without limitation Section 105 of the Bankruptcy Code, any of the terms, provisions or





conditions of this Agreement in any such bankruptcy proceeding and hereby irrevocably waives any ability to do so. Further, Subservicer acknowledges and agrees that its services provided under this Agreement are essential and should Subservicer fail to perform its obligations under this Agreement, Owner/Servicer shall suffer irreparable harm and, consequently, Owner/Servicer shall have the right to obtain on an expedited basis an order from the bankruptcy court: (i) lifting the Section 362 automatic stay so as to permit Owner/Servicer to terminate this Agreement; and (ii) compelling Subservicer to immediately assume or reject this Agreement in accordance with the provisions of Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code. In the event this Agreement is rejected under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code, this Agreement

70





shall be terminated and Subservicer agrees to immediately comply with its obligations under this Agreement with respect to termination of this Agreement. Finally, Subservicer acknowledges and agrees that Section 506(c) of the Bankruptcy Code has no application to this Agreement and, even if it did, Subservicer hereby expressly waives any right to surcharge Owner/Servicer under Section 506(c) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Section 9.17. Restrictions of Notices; Information and Disclosure.

Notwithstanding anything else herein, nothing in this Agreement shall require any party to provide any notice, information, investigation, audit, correspondence, and any other communication (collectively, "Information") to any other party (1) if providing such Information is prohibited by Applicable Requirements (as defined in the MSRPA) or (2) upon advice of counsel, if providing such Information may cause such party to lose attorney-client privilege (governed by the applicable jurisdiction) between such party and its attorneys.
