I've looked through the information given from Adobe on the licencing for their fonts but am a little confused on the following statement:

The font licensing does not allow you to use the fonts in any way where your customers select and apply fonts to their own text as part of the design. This applies to both digital and physical products, such as greeting cards, T-shirts, and coffee cups.

You may create custom designs for a client on a one-to-one basis, but may not offer customizing products with fonts from your Creative Cloud subscription through a website or other service.

I was hoping to use the font for my catering business as a logo and have it printed on coffee cups and on napkins etc. does the above statement mean I cannot do this? Adobe also state the following:

Can I use the fonts to create products I will sell commercially, such as t-shirts, posters, books, magazines, or other printed merchandise?

Yes. You can use the fonts for any kind of merchandise, whether you’re designing a t-shirt for a friend or product packaging for a client. Other printed products, such as books or magazines, are permitted as well. There is no limitation on the number of impressions or items you may produce.

So i'm not sure which one would apply to me?
