Consulting about Licensing Scope in a corporate environment - Kaspersky Free Antivirus 2019

Good morning, dear Kaspersky support team

First, I''m sorry if this isn''t the right channel for this kind of questioning, but it was the only way I found to directly contact the support team.

We have an atypical licensing situation in a corporate environment, and we would like to hear from you on this merit.

We work in a corporate network environment that makes use of corporate outsourced partners, in addition to the company''s own hired employees.

There is a compliance policy applied in this network environment where sometimes the third-party`s Anti-Virus solution on their endpoint machines does not meet the network compliance requirements, in which case these third-party resources need to uninstall their Anti-Virus solution, often an Enterprise solution, and install a free solution to meet this one-off demand. Once these outsourced resources cease to operate in the corporate environment, they will uninstall the free solution and reinstall the solution provided by their own infrastructure team or IT Sector, which is no longer the free solution.

Our question is: Is the installation and use of the Kaspersky Free Antivirus solution, which is intended for home use, legally permitted in the above case?

They are corporate machines, being used in a corporate network environment of a second company (outsourced resources working in a client company), and that need a punctual free solution to meet a temporary demand, which will be installed by the user himself (end-user), not their IT sector or infrastructure team.

In this case, is it legally acceptable to use Kaspersky''s Free solution, even on machines registered under corporate domain?

We thank you in advance for your attention to this question and will be waiting on your return about this.

Att.,
