(b) the risk of accidental loss or damage is on the debtor to the extent of a deficiency in any effective insurance coverage;

(c) the secured party shall keep the collateral identifiable, but fungible collateral may be commingled; and

(d) the secured party may use or operate the collateral: (i) for the purpose of preserving the collateral or its value; (ii) as permitted by an order of a court having competent jurisdiction; or (iii) except in the case of consumer goods, in the manner and to the extent agreed by the

debtor. (3) Except as otherwise provided in Subsection (4), a secured party having possession of collateral

(c) may create a security interest in the collateral. (4) If the secured party is a buyer of accounts, chattel paper, payment intangibles, or promissory

notes or a consignor: (a) Subsection (1) does not apply unless the secured party is entitled under an agreement:

(i) to charge back uncollected collateral; or (ii) otherwise to full or limited recourse against the debtor or a secondary obligor based on the

nonpayment or other default of an account debtor or other obligor on the collateral; and (b) Subsections (2) and (3) do not apply.
