The undersigned are Senior Vice Presidents of ZCSIA, have sufficient authority to make the statements contained in this Assertion and are responsible for assessing compliance with the servicing criteria applicable to ZCSIA.

The remaining servicing criteria set forth in Item 1122(d) of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Regulation AB are not applicable to the activities performed by ZCSIA with respect to the Platform covered by this report. As a subcontractor for Servicer, ZCSIA has determined that it complied in all material respects with the servicing criteria listed below.

1.           ZCSIA maintained a fidelity bond and errors & omissions policy in effect on ZCSIA throughout the reporting period in the amount of coverage required by the transaction agreements between the Servicer and ZCSIA (1122(d)((1)(iv)).


2.            To the extent that ZCSIA prints checks for Servicer or otherwise has Servicer’s checks or check stock, unissued checks are safeguarded so as to prevent unauthorized access (1122(d)(2)(vi)).

3.            Payments made on behalf of Servicer’s obligor for insurance premiums are made on or before the related penalty or expiration dates, as indicated on the appropriate bills or notices for such payments, provided that such support has been received by the Servicer at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to these dates, or such other number of days specified in the transaction agreements between Servicer and ZCSIA (1122(d)(4)(xi)).


4.            Any late payment penalties in connection with any payment for insurance to be made on behalf of Servicer’s obligor are paid from the Servicer’s funds or ZCSIA’s funds and not charged to Servicer’s obligor, unless the late payment was due to the obligor’s error or omission (1122(d)(4)(xii)).


5.            File(s) provided to Servicer from which Servicer may make disbursements made on behalf of Servicer’s obligor are provided to Servicer on an accurate and timely basis and the information thereon is subject to such controls as are specified in the transaction agreements between Servicer and ZCSIA (1122(d)(4)(xiii)).
