Where the Permitted Purpose is "ordinary business purposes", Registered Employees may, in the scope of their employment status with the Client, on an occasional and irregular basis, provide insubstantial portions of the Licensed Products to non-authorized employees of Client or in memoranda, reports, presentations, scholarly works, and articles. In all cases these insubstantial portions may only be made available in print or by secure electronic means to a limited number of individuals, and each such portion must include copyright notices (from Insight Iraq and/or third parties, as applicable) and an original source attribution, in each case, as such notice and attribution is reasonably acceptable to Insight Iraq.

Without limitation to the generality of Section 1, neither Client nor Registered Employees are permitted, directly or indirectly, to allow any other person to use or share Registered Employees' user names or passwords, nor to allow an unauthorized user to have access to the Site.

2.1 Without prejudice to Insight Iraq's rights and remedies, Insight Iraq may cancel Client's membership (including usernames and passwords) if: (a) Client has, or any Registered Employee has breached this Agreement or acted inconsistently with the spirit of this Agreement; or (b) if Client ceases to carry on its business or has a liquidator, receiver or administrative receiver appointed to Client or over any part of Client's undertaking or assets or passes a resolution for the Client winding up (otherwise than for the purpose of a bona fide scheme or solvent amalgamation or reconstruction where the resultant entity shall assume the Client's liabilities) or a court of competent jurisdiction makes an order, or enters into any voluntary arrangement with Client's creditors, or Client becomes unable to pay its our debts as they fall due or similar in any other jurisdiction.
