If there is any inconsistency between the hsy’s rights under this clause 6.5(e) and its rights under Chapter 4 of the PPS Act, this clause 6.5(e) prevails.
f) the Customer acknowledges and warrants that hsy has a security interest (for the purposes of the PPS Act) in the Parts and any proceeds described in clause 6.5(f) and the Customer must do anything reasonably required by hsy to ensure that such security interest is enforceable, perfected and otherwise effective and has the priority required by hsy which, unless hsy agrees in writing otherwise, is first priority; and

7.1 Unless a contrary intention appears, words or expressions used in this clause 7 that are defined in the PPS Act have the same meaning as given to them in the PPS Act.
7.2 If at any time hsy determines that these Terms (or any of the transactions contemplated by or under them) creates a security interest in its favour over any personal property, hsy may apply for any registration, or give any notification, in connection with that security interest and the Customer must promptly, upon hsy’s request, do any thing (including, without limitation, completing, signing and producing documents, obtaining consents and supplying information) to:
a) protect any right, title and/or interest of hsy in the relevant personal property;
b) provide more effective security over the relevant personal property;
c) ensure that any such security interest in favour of hsy:
(i) is at all times registered, enforceable, perfected (including, where applicable, by control as well as by registration), maintained and otherwise fully effective; and
(ii) ranks as a first priority security interest;
d) enable hsy to prepare and register a financing statement or a financing change statement or give any notification in connection with that security interest; and

g) section 135 (notice of hsy’s proposal to retain the Parts or their proceeds);
h) section 142 (redemption of collateral); and
