I have the same situation, I'm a web designer and made a website for the client, buying images from a Standard License. I do not sell the images to the client and my client does not sell Adobe Stock images and does not use them on physical goods for sale. I act as an agent, freelancer or company that provides services for the creation of sites. The client pays me only for the service. Said differently: I made a website in the website Builder and gave it to the client where on the site they are used as background/cover/icons/video, but the images/videos I bought and the license is listed in my account Adobe Stock. Today in the chat specialist Adobe told me that I need to buy an extended License. Another expert said now that you can do standard licenses. A lot of contradictions and answer differently.Although these responses 2 expert Adobe says you can use a Standard License?
Where is truth?
Or do I need to create an Adobe account for a new client and transfer the image/ video License to him or is it enough to buy 2 Standard License in my account? And if will use customers on 3 sites , will buy 3 a License?
The rules of paragraph 3.4 written:
3.4. Additional Rights. These additional rights are subject to the Terms and the restrictions in section 4.
(a) EmployerorClientUse.YoumaypurchasealicensepursuanttotheTermsonbehalfofyouremployeror client, provided that you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind your employer or client to the Terms. You may use a Work for the benefit of one of your clients, provided that you transfer your license to your client via an enforceable written agreement that includes terms no less restrictive than the Terms. You are solely responsible and liable for use of the Work by your employer or client. You must purchase additional licenses for the same Work if you intend to use the same Work for the benefit of other clients.

Option 1: I bought an image or video as a Standard License to use only on my website. Everything is clear.
Option 2: the same image my client wants to use. I need to buy 2 Standard License to use on 2 sites. And notify the client in writing that I bought the image for him? Right? So i don't have to give him a License specifically? After written notice, is he responsible for the use of the image/video?
3 Option: I bought the image or video only for use on the client's website, on 1 resource, it turns out i only need 1 license? Am I right? And also notify the client in writing.
What pattern should I use to notify him? In free form?
I'm just starting to make sites and would like to find out all the questions before buying.
In the case when you buy stock images for your client to be incorporated on the clients web site, you need to transfer the rights you get from the standard license to the client.
In your case, best would be that the client acknowledges that you have aquired a license for him to use and you acknowledge to the client that the images have been acquired from stock and that the client has the right to display them on his web site.
In general this is handled by a contract or during the invoicing. It is important for the client in case he gets notice from a rights owner to prove the rightful use of the pictures.
A standard license is enough. In the case you do aditional work for the client e.g. a print work with less then the limit run, you can reuse the image without need to relicense.
In the case you need the same asset for a different client or for yourself, you need to acquire again a standard license.
In the case that the print run is over the limit, you need an extended license. If you have 2 customers with the same condition, you need 2 extended licenses. Your are buying the license for the intended use of a specific customer.
If you have a subcontractor, doing some work for the customer, either you or the subcontractor or the customer acquires the license. The fact that you or the subcontractor is doing work with that asset does not mean that everybody needs to acquire a full extended license evn that a situation like that would be great for me as a contributor.
It’s the final use that determines the license needed. It’s not that there are several subcontractors and contractors in between that you need to give an arm and a leg to acquire an asset.
I Understand! Thank you so much!
