In such event, the right of the assignee to received payment, as well as any other right of the assignee under this Agreement, shall not be subject to any defense, set-off, counterclaim, or recoupment which may arise out of any breach or any obligation of Contractor under this Agreement by reason of any other indebtedness or liability at any time owning by Contractor to Customer. Any of such obligations or liabilities of Contractor to Customer shall remain enforceable against Contractor only. Such assignment shall not relieve Contractor of any of its obligations hereunder, and shall not give rise to an assumption of such obligations by the assignee.

Contractor, at its option, may sell the parts or material of the system or any part thereof, to the highest bidder at public auction. The net proceeds of any such sale, less Contractor expense incurred in connection therewith, including reasonable attorney’s fees, shall be applied to the total paid amount provided for herein, which Contractor shall be entitled to recover from the Customer as liquidated damages for the breach of this Agreement, and the Customer shall pay Contractor any deficiency.
