Widget Terms of Use: Legal Queries

My Question or Issue

I have been reading through the Widget Terms of Use and have some queries around some of the language used:


"Section III: Licenses and Permissions
3. 3. License to Spotify. You grant to us a paid-up, royalty-free, non-exclusive, worldwide, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable right and license, under all of your intellectual property rights, to:
c. sublicense the foregoing rights to our corporate affiliates or any third parties that are working with us as development partners, hosting facilities, and in similar capacities, in order to enable them to perform their services for us"


- There is no definition of what a corporate affiliate is. What is the definition and what is the intention behind this clause?


Section IV: Restrictions

Spotify Content Restrictions. In addition to the foregoing, you must comply with the following restrictions related to Spotify Content.
a. Editing, Modifying, and Altering. Except as agreed upon by Spotify in writing, you shall not edit, modify, alter, or create derivative works of Spotify Content in any way.
- The embed code provided uses iframe, which isn't displaying it on site when I test it. However, if I change the iframe to object it works. How can I get it agreed in writing that this change is not an issue, as it isn't changing any of the fundamentals of the Widget (branding, layout, colours, etc).

3. Widgets Restrictions. In addition to the foregoing, you agree to comply with the following restrictions if you use Spotify Widgets.
e. Please note that the Spotify Play Button may not be used for commercial purposes. This restriction does not prohibit you from embedding the Spotify Play Button on Websites that contain advertising.


- What is the definition of "commercial purposes"?


I've been trying to find a legal contact at Spotify to help me with these queries, but am finding impossible to get through to someone who can help. Therefore, I'd really appreciate any further information anyone can provide me with to help resolve my queries.
