More information:

Basically this means you can't sell, lend or give away the resource or use it with anyone apart from the students at the school where the resource was purchased. You can print the resource and make a reasonable amount of copies for the students at your school, but you need to make sure you don't change the footers. You can't take the resource with you when you leave to go to another school, that school would have to buy their own copy. You can't do anything with the electronic form of the resource other than print copies for your school to photocopy – so you can't put it up on an Intranet, or email it to students etc.
