Therefore, by way of example, if Your Subscription includes one Chatbot, one Language (e.g. English), and one Channel, You may for the term of Your Subscription, access and use the Hosted Services in the development, testing, building, deployment and support of a single English Language Chatbot on the Channel specified for Your Subscription.

You are not permitted to distribute the Integrated Software pursuant to this Section as a standalone product or as a part of any product other than Your Chatbot. Your End-user license agreement or terms of use must: impose the limitations set forth in this paragraph on Your End-users; prohibit distribution of the Integrated Software by Your End-users; limit the liability of Your licensors or suppliers to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law; and prohibit any attempt to disassemble the code, or attempt in any manner to reconstruct, discover, reuse or modify any source code or underlying algorithms of the Integrated Software, except to the limited extent as is permitted by law notwithstanding contractual prohibition. For avoidance of doubt, Your End-users are not permitted to use NativeChat, including any of the Integrated Software, or any portions thereof, for software development or Chatbot development purposes unless they also purchase a separate commercial license from Telerik for their own use.
