Hi, I want to understand to what extent we are allowed to use a module under this license.


It is forbidden to publish, distribute, sublicense, or sell copies of the Software
or modified copies of the Software.


What does sublicense mean in this case?

Are we allowed to host instances for our customers with this module?

I understand providing this module to a customer who intends to host odoo himself would count as distributing it, correct?

If anyone could make a straight forwards restatement of the license, it would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!
