I am an individual user.
Is it legal for me to use videos or photos from Adobe assets that I downloaded as an individual user on my company's website?

Yes. Consider your company as your customer. Consider yourself also as your customer. You can use the licensed assets only for one customer. So if you have own use and company use for the same asset, you will need to relicence. That is the only constrained here.

I think they are correct and advice is based on reading and interpreting the licence terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I cannot rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee).

If you have already used the downloaded asset for your own use, such as on your own website, you must re-license it for the company's use. Each project requires the asset to be separately licensed.

By @Jill_C

No, each customer requires a separate license, with own use counting here also as a "customer".  You can use the same asset in different projects for the same customer, like website use, social media use, advertising in print media (with a standard license for up to 500k print run), without the need for a new license.

Sorry my wording wasn't clear. Each "customer" for whom an asset is used requires a unique license.
