7.4 Each Party shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that any such Confidential Information disclosed to any person in accordance with this Section 7 is treated as confidential by the person to whom it is disclosed and shall require its subcontractors to enter into a confidentiality agreement which imposes confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Confidential Information than those imposed upon under the Agreement.

7.6 Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that a Party may have, both Parties acknowledge and agree that the other Party may not have an adequate remedy at law for any breach of the provisions of this Section 7, and that therefore the other Party shall be entitled to equitable relief including injunctive relief.
