FairMail hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, perpetual, right to use, modify, and reproduce Images in the following ways, subject to the limitations set forth herein and in Part II hereof:
For online usage on websites, blogs, newsletters and social media sites, applications (including mobile "apps"), film, video and multimedia presentations and opt-in e-mail marketing provided that no Image is reproduced more than two hundred fifty thousand (250,000) times in the aggregate, and that the Images cannot be readily unincorporated from such digital media or software;
