(Together the “Scriptix Services”).

The original Account holder shall be the lead Seat and shall be able to add a specified number of other Seats (in accordance with the selected tier). Seats may be transferred to new users at any time but shall always be for named individuals and not a generic Seat used by multiple individuals concurrently. Sharing of log-in details with any other user is strictly prohibited in accordance with clause 2.6.
