short and to the point:
You can use our assets for any project, no matter how big or commercial it is. All we don't want you to do is to share our files with people who didn't buy them or resell our stuff. For All Access subscriptions, your license is only active with a paid subscription - letting it lapse voids the license, limiting usage.
in legal words:
The following Content License Agreement (“CLA”) is a legal agreement between you and ACIDBITE (“we,” “us” and “our”), and governs your use of the Content (as defined below) licensed by you and any customer support or services provided by us in connection with such Content.

• “Project” – means an audio/visual project to which Content is added or synchronized.
