You recognize all of the above terms and accept that use of the Mabstac software on your system is done solely at your own risk.
You agree that any breach of your obligations with respect to Mabstac’s proprietary or intellectual property rights will result in irreparable injury to Mabstac for which money damages are inadequate.
