Therefore, Subscriber agrees that, in the event of such unauthorised use, in addition to such other legal and equitable rights and remedies as may be available to Alive to the World, Alive to the World shall be entitled to seek injunctive and other equitable relief without the necessity of proving damages or furnishing a bond or other security.
