1. Rights to use the Materials.

  1. Subject to your purchase of access to the Materials, your compliance with the terms and conditions of the Agreement (including the Eligibility Criteria set forth in these General Terms), and payment of all applicable fees, Unity grants you a non-exclusive, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, royalty-free license for the Term to install the executable form of the Materials under an Order on Authorized Machines for Permitted Uses; provided only that you may distribute those Materials to Authorized Users for Permitted Uses on Authorized Machines. You will be and remain primarily liable to Unity for any unauthorized use of the Materials by Authorized Users.

  2.
