You must not use any of these keys to license sites for clients or customers. We do provide developer license options (which you can find inside the OptimizeHub licensing section) if you need licenses for use on client sites. These are available for an additional purchase.
We periodically check our licensing system for any potential infringements and will verify ownership of sites through various checks including server IP address and Whois services.
In the event that we cannot verify ownership of a site licensed inside your account we may require further proof that sites licensed are owned, operated and registered to you. This may include requirement to provide domain registration proof of ownership.
In the event that sufficient proof is not provided, or we find evidence of misuse of our licensing system, we reserve the right to cancel license keys or accounts without notice or recourse.

This might be as part of an network marketing scheme, or as a network of sites built for clients.
If you are providing logins to a site licensed under your account to another individual for them to operate and administer the site (except any team members working on your site for you) - this would most likely be considered a breach of our agreement under the sub-licensing terms.
