2.1 You may not use your access to Unity Source Code to enable or optimize Software, or otherwise create Modifications, to port to a Platform that is not a Unity Supported Platform without Unity’s prior written consent. For clarity, “porting” in this context means the process of adapting software for the purpose of achieving some form of execution and/or optimization of Software that is different from the one that it was originally designed for (i.e., Unity Supported Platforms).
2.2 For the avoidance of doubt, the Third Party Requirements section of the Unity Editor Additional Terms applies to your use of Unity Source Code.
3.1. General. Unity Supported Platforms may have their own requirements or prerequisites, such as developer agreements and nondisclosure agreements, in order to receive relevant Unity Source Code. Unity cannot guarantee that you will be approved to receive such Unity Source Code, and has no liability for delays in your receipt of (or denial of approval for) such portions of Unity Source Code.
3.2 Platform Requirements.
