You may not otherwise use the Licensed Materials to compete with Sonnet’s products or businesses. Except as expressly provided below, you may not permit any third party, or anyone other than your employees whose duties require such access or use, to have access to, view the operations of, or otherwise use the Licensed Materials, or any information learned or observed during the use of the Licensed Materials.
