By providing you with access to the Beta Services, BINOX does not warrant or guarantee that how you may choose to use the Beta Services is allowed by any particular service provider, nor that your use complies with any laws or regulations that may apply to your use or purchase of any other services. BINOX is not liable for your failure to comply with any applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations or any contracts, rules, policies or procedures applicable to your activities.

All Confidential Information remains the sole and exclusive property of BINOX.
7.4. You agree that any breach of this Beta Agreement by you may result in irreparable harm to BINOX, for which damages would be an inadequate remedy and therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, BINOX shall be entitled to seek equitable relief, including injunction, in the event of such breach.
