(iii) From all the facts and circumstances known to him or her at the time in question he or she has reason to know that it exists.
(2) A person "knows" or "has knowledge" of a fact if he or she has actual knowledge of it.
(b) A person "notifies" or "gives" a notice or notification to another person by taking steps reasonably calculated to inform the other in ordinary course whether or not the other actually comes to know of it. A person "receives" a notice or notification when:

(c) "Notice," knowledge or a notice or notification received by an organization, is effective for a particular transaction from the time it is brought to the attention of the individual conducting that transaction, and in any event from the time it would have been brought to his or her attention if the organization had exercised reasonable diligence.
