Framework sells and ships Product(s) to Customers only. You will only use the Products for your own internal, personal use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party.
I primarily use my laptop for personal uses. However, I also volunteer with a non-profit and develop software for them in my spare time. Guess I can’t buy a Framework laptop and use it for that because doing so benefits a third party (the non-profit). I have no issue with saying personal use, but further defining that as not benefiting a third party is very draconian, and likely isn’t what was intended.
Reductio ad absurdem, I’m not even sure there’s any use that doesn’t provide benefit to a third party. If you browsing a website that has ads, do you need the financial statements of the company to determine that they aren’t making a profit from web ads? It seems like I also couldn’t answer any questions on the Framework forums using a Framework laptop, because that might benefit either Framework itself, or another third party like a personal user who asked the question.
Given the other clauses that restrict resale, and indemnifying Framework from what you use it for, what reason is there for the “not benefit a third party” clause?
Purchases may not be resold or exported. Your purchase is for your own use, not for resale, export, re-export or transfer. Your purchase is subject to and you are responsible for compliance with the export control and economic sanctions laws of the United States and other applicable jurisdictions (“Export Laws”). Your purchase may not be sold, leased, or transferred to restricted countries, restricted end users, or for restricted end uses according to the Export Laws.
This does limit to personal use, but doesn’t specify that can’t benefit third parties, which is what I think is the onerous part.
I probably used the word clause wrong (IANAL nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express), but it’s later in the same paragraph
You may not purchase Product(s) for the purpose of resale
Everyone should note that, if you have the legal right to do something in your country, a company’s Terms do not remove your rights.
