Each Recipient further agrees not to use any agent or other third party to provide breeding or other services with respect to the MICE without the prior written agreement of JACKSON. Acceptance of the MICE from JACKSON shall be deemed agreement to these terms. The original source of the MICE is the INSTITUTION.
