This restriction does not prevent end users from remotely accessing Licensee Content from an end user device that is running on another end user device.
Embedded Software Restriction
You may not directly or indirectly distribute Licensee Content installed on more than 1,000 electronic devices or systems if such Licensee Content provides the user interface or primary functionality of such electronic device or system without a separate license from Unity.

Acceptance and Legal Entity Representations
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR USING THE SOFTWARE. THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT (“AGREEMENT”) GOVERN USE OF THE SOFTWARE UNLESS YOU AND UNITY TECHNOLOGIES APS (“UNITY”) HAVE EXECUTED A SEPARATE AGREEMENT GOVERNING USE OF THE SOFTWARE.
Unity is willing to license the Software to you only upon the condition that you accept all the terms contained in this Agreement. By checking the box with links to this Agreement, clicking “accept” or by downloading, installing or using the Software, you are agreeing that you understand this Agreement and accept all of its terms. If you are accepting the terms of this Agreement on behalf of a Legal Entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that Legal Entity to the terms of this Agreement, and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer to that Legal Entity. If you do not accept all the terms of this Agreement, then Unity is unwilling to license the Software to you, and you must destroy all copies of the Software in your possession or control and so certify by email to Unity within thirty (30) days. If Unity timely receives such certification, Unity shall refund the fees paid.
If you are accepting the terms of this Agreement on behalf of a Legal Entity for use of Unity Free, you represent and warrant that: (i) if the Legal Entity is a commercial entity, the annual gross revenues of the Legal Entity during its prior fiscal year did not exceed US$100,000 (or an equivalent amount in another currency); and (ii) if the Legal Entity is an educational, academic, non-profit or government entity, the total annual budget for the entire Legal Entity during its prior fiscal year did not exceed US$100,000 (or an equivalent amount in another currency). You expressly acknowledge and agree that if the annual gross revenues or annual budget, as applicable, of the Legal Entity during its prior fiscal year exceeded US$100,000 (or an equivalent amount in another currency), then Unity is unwilling to license Unity Free to you, and you must destroy all copies of Unity Free in your possession or control or you must purchase Unity Pro.
1. Grant of License
Use Rights. Conditioned upon your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and payment of all applicable fees, Unity grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license: (i) to install and execute the executable form of the Software, solely for internal use by a single person to develop Licensee Content; and (ii) if you have licensed a version of the Software other than a trial or educational version, to distribute the runtime portion of the Software, on a royalty-free basis, solely as embedded or incorporated into Licensee Content and solely to third parties to whom you license or sell Licensee Content pursuant to an agreement that is no less protective of Unity and its licensors as this Agreement. You may not sublicense the rights granted under clause (a)(i), but you may sublicense the rights granted under (a)(ii) solely to third parties to whom you license or sell Licensee Content to act as distributors thereof pursuant to an agreement no less protective of Unity and its licensors as this Agreement.

You may install Unity Pro and any other paid Unity products on both a primary computer and a secondary computer, solely for your convenience, but only for use by a single person. You may make a single copy of the Software solely for backup or archival purposes. For the sake of clarity, you may only use one installation at any given time. We may in our sole discretion authorize you to install the Software on an additional computer or computers upon deactivation of the Software installed on existing computers.

For the avoidance of doubt, (i) if you are a permitted user of Unity Free, you may commence a project using only Unity Free and subsequently upgrade all (but not less than all) of your licenses to Unity Pro, and (ii) any user of the Software may use content licensed from third parties regardless of the version of the Software that was used to develop such third party content.
Unity Free Add-On Platform Restrictions. If you are a Legal Entity (of any size), you may not combine or integrate content you develop with Unity Free platform add-ons simultaneously with any content you develop with Unity Pro Add-On Products for the same platform. This restriction does not prohibit the use of Unity Free platform add-on by permitted users of Unity Free and Unity Pro Add-on Products for different platforms such as iOS Pro and Unity Free for Android. For the avoidance of doubt, (i) if you are a permitted user of Unity Free, you may commence a project using only a Unity Free add-on platform such as iOS and subsequently upgrade all (but not less than all) of your licenses to iOS Pro, and (ii) any user of the Software may use content licensed from third parties regardless of the version of the Software that was used to develop such third party content.
Embedded Software Restriction. You may not directly or indirectly distribute Licensee Content installed on more than 1,000 electronic devices or systems if such Licensee Content provides the user interface or primary functionality of such electronic device or system without a separate license from Unity.

Streaming and Cloud Gaming Restrictions. You may not directly or indirectly distribute interactive Licensee Content by means of streaming or broadcasting such Licensee Content that is primarily executed on a server and transmitted over the Internet or other network to end user devices without a separate license from Unity.
