User further agrees that User shall not use Confidential Information except to the extent necessary to exercise the license granted to User by Qlik hereunder. User will protect Confidential Information from unauthorized distribution and use with the same degree of care that User uses to protect its own like information, but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care.  User acknowledges and agrees that, due to the unique nature of the Confidential Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for breach of this Section 7and that such breach would cause irreparable harm to Qlik; therefore Qlik will be entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief, in addition to any remedies otherwise available at law or under this DLA.

Qlik’s written request for audit will be submitted to User at least fifteen (15) days prior to the specified audit date.  If User is not in material compliance with the terms of this DLA, then notwithstanding any rights or remedies available to Qlik in respect of such non-compliance, User shall reimburse Qlik for the expenses incurred by Qlik in conducting the audit.
