Can I use web fonts for commercial projects or client work?

I've created a web project for a clients website. And I am trying to figure out if the client is able to publish their site using the typekit link I generated or if they need to remake it on their end and generate a different unique link?

I believe the client needs their own CC subscription and to generate their own Typekit link. If it were me I would

(a) make them aware of the limitations of this (including: if their subscription lapses, their website breaks; Adobe could remove fonts)

(b) give them the budget required to purchase web font licenses and host them instead

Depending on where in the world you live, using web fonts hosted by Google or Adobe or a different hosting company may also bring you in conflict with privacy legislation. I always consider storing the font locally, even when that increases my webpage load.
