         13. Governing Law; Jurisdiction.  This Note and all actions arising out
of or in  connection  with this  Note  shall be  governed  by and  construed  in
accordance  with the laws of the  State of  California,  without  regard  to the

         14. Indemnity.

                  (a) Indemnity. In consideration of Investor's purchase of this
Note and in addition to all of Company's other obligations under the Transaction
Documents,  Company shall defend, protect,  indemnify and hold harmless Investor
and all of its  stockholders,  officers,  directors,  employees  and  direct  or
indirect  investors  and  any of  Investors'  agents  or  other  representatives
(including  those retained in connection with the  transactions  contemplated by
the Transaction  Documents)  (collectively,  the "Indemnitees") from and against
any and all actions,  causes of action, suits, claims, losses, costs, penalties,
fees,   liabilities   and  damages,   and  expenses  in   connection   therewith
(irrespective  of whether any such Indemnitee is a party to the action for which
indemnification  hereunder is sought), and including reasonable  attorneys' fees
and disbursements (collectively, the "Indemnified Liabilities"), incurred by any
Indemnitee as a result of, or arising out of, or relating to any matter or thing
or action or failure to act by  Indemnitees,  or any of them,  arising out of or
relating  to the  Transaction  Documents,  including  any use by  Company of any

proceeds from the sale of this Note,  except to the extent such liability arises
from the gross  negligence  or willful  misconduct  of the  Indemnitees.  To the
extent that the foregoing  undertaking by Company may be  unenforceable  for any
reason,  Company  shall  make  the  maximum  contribution  to  the  payment  and
satisfaction of each of the Indemnified  Liabilities  which is permissible under
applicable law.

                  (b) Process.  Upon receiving  knowledge of any suit,  claim or
demand  asserted  by a third  party that  Investor  believes  is covered by this
indemnity (a "Claim"),  Investor  shall give Company notice of the matter and an
opportunity to defend it, at Company's sole cost and expense, with legal counsel
satisfactory to Investor.  However, the Indemnitees may retain their own counsel
with the fees and expenses of not more than one counsel for the  Indemnitees  to
be paid by  Company,  if, in the  reasonable  opinion  of  counsel  retained  by
Company, the representation by such counsel of the Indemnitees and Company would
be inappropriate  due to actual or potential  differing  interests  between such
Indemnitees  and any other party  represented by such counsel.  The  Indemnitees
shall, at Company's expense, cooperate fully with Company in connection with any
negotiation  or  defense  of any  Claim  by  Company.  Company  shall  keep  the
Indemnitees  fully  apprized as to the status of the  defense or any  settlement
negotiations  with  respect  thereto.  Company  shall  not  be  liable  for  any
settlement of any Claim effected  without its prior written  consent,  provided,
however,  that Company shall not unreasonably  withhold,  delay or condition its
consent.   Company  shall  not,   without  the  prior  written  consent  of  the
Indemnitees,  consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any  settlement  or
other  compromise  which does not include as an  unconditional  term thereof the
giving by the  claimant or plaintiff  to the  Indemnitees  of a release from all
liability  in respect to such Claim.  Any failure or delay of Investor to notify
Company of any Claim shall not  relieve  Company of its  obligations  under this
Section,  but shall  reduce such  obligations  to the extent of any  increase in
those  obligations  caused  solely by an  unreasonable  failure  or  delay.  The
indemnification  required by this Section shall be made by periodic  payments of
the amount thereof  during the course of the  investigation  or defense,  as and
when bills are received or Indemnified  Liabilities are incurred.  The indemnity
agreements  contained  herein shall be in addition to (i) any cause of action or
similar  right of an  Indemnitee  has  against  Company or others,  and (ii) any
liabilities  Company may be subject to pursuant to the law. The  obligations  of
the parties under this Section shall survive the payment and  performance of the
Obligations.

         15. No Third Party Rights.  Nothing  expressed in or to be implied from
this Note is intended to give, or shall be construed to give, any Person,  other
than the parties hereto and their  permitted  successors and assigns  hereunder,
any benefit or legal or equitable  right,  remedy or claim under or by virtue of
this Note or under or by virtue of any provision herein.

         16. Expenses.  Company shall pay on demand, (a) all reasonable fees and
expenses,  including  reasonable  attorneys'  fees  and  expenses,  incurred  by
Investor in connection with the preparation,  execution and delivery of, and the
exercise  of its rights and duties  under,  this Note and the other  Transaction
Documents,   and  the  preparation  of  amendments  and  waivers  hereunder  and
thereunder;  and (b) all  reasonable  fees and  expenses,  including  reasonable
attorneys' fees and expenses, incurred by Investor in the enforcement or attempt
to enforce any of the Obligations which is not performed as and when required by
this Note or the other Transaction Documents.

         17. Cumulative Rights, etc. The rights, powers and remedies of Investor
under this Note shall be in addition to all rights, powers and remedies given to
Investor by virtue of any applicable law, rule or regulation of any governmental
authority, any Transaction Document or any other agreement, all of which rights,
powers,  and remedies shall be cumulative and may be exercised  successively  or
concurrently without impairing Investor's rights hereunder.

         18. Payments Free of Taxes, Etc. All payments made by Company under the
Transaction  Documents  shall be made by Company  free and clear of and  without
deduction for any and all present and future taxes, levies, charges,  deductions
and withholdings.  In addition, Company shall pay upon demand any stamp or other
taxes,  levies or charges of any  jurisdiction  with  respect to the  execution,
delivery, registration, performance and enforcement of this Note.

         19. Partial Invalidity. If at any time any provision of this Note is or
becomes  illegal,  invalid or  unenforceable in any respect under the law or any
jurisdiction,  neither the legality, validity or enforceability of the remaining
provisions of this Note nor the  legality,  validity or  enforceability  of such
provision under the law of any other  jurisdiction  shall in any way be affected
or impaired thereby.
