You acknowledge and agree that a breach or threatened breach by you of any of your obligations under this Agreement would cause the Werkx irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agrees that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, Werkx will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy.
