  3. This Software Licence Agreement supersedes all proposals, oral or written, and all negotiations, conversations or discussions heretofore had between the parties related to this Software Licence Agreement. LICENSEE acknowledges that it has not been induced to enter into this Software Licence Agreement by any representations or statements, oral or written, not expressly contained herein.

  6. The obligations of LICENSEE under Sections 4 (Restrictions on Use) and 9 (Non-Disclosure) hereof are of a special and unique character which gives them a peculiar value to QUICKSCRIPTS for which QUICKSCRIPTS cannot be reasonably or adequately compensated in damages in the event LICENSEE breaches such obligations. Therefore QUICKSCRIPTS shall, in addition to other remedies which may be available, be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief in the event of the breach or threatened breach of such obligations.
