contrary, Client hereby authorizes beiNVENTiV to treat any person using Client's or any of its Authorized Users' 

passwords, Access IDs and/or member account as Client (even if such person is using such item(s) without Client's

Section 1.1 (License Grant), 1.2 (License Restrictions), or 4 (Ownership; Protection) would result in irreparable 

harm to the non-breaching party or its suppliers for which a remedy at law would be inadequate, and therefore,

other rights and remedies available at law or in equity.
