Section 3. Exceptions to the restriction on Commercial Use

The restriction on the Commercial Use of the Licensed Work does not apply if
any of the following conditions are met:

  a) You have made separate agreements to the Licensor to use the Licensed
     Work under a different license.

  b) You have made good faith, non-intrusive attempts to reach out to the
     Licensor for the purpose of making a separate license in (a), but have
     failed to reach the Licensor, or they have failed to give a reply in six
     months. For the purpose of this subsection, all reasonable, non-intrusive
     communication channels must have been exhausted before You can rely on
     this exception.

     You may not rely on this exception if any Licensor have previously given
     You any reply whatsoever, even if not favorable to You, through any
     reasonable communication channel including public announcements on the
     Internet.

     You may not rely on this exception if any Licensor have already rejected
     requests You have made with or without reason, through any reasonable
     communication channel including public announcements on the Internet.

     This exception is not intended and cannot be construed as a waiver of any
     privacy rights or expectations of the Licensor, and does not give You any
     rights whatsoever to violate the privacy rights and expectations of the
     Licensor. You may not make more requests to the Licensor than is
     reasonable.

     This exception is not intended and cannot be construed as to impose any
     contractual obligations on the part of the Licensor to discuss,
     negotiate, reply or otherwise deal with Your request(s).

     You must keep records to prove that You have made such attempts.

     Not withstanding the terms in this subsection, if the Licensor has put up
     a public notice to convey their intention of not making separate licenses
     in any specified case or cases, You cannot rely on this subsection if You
     fall under such case or cases.

  c) The Licensed Work has been published for ten or more years.

     You cannot rely on this subsection for a newer version of the Licensed
     Work if only some older version(s) meet the conditions in this subsection;
     However, the publishing of a newer version of the Licensed Work will not
     extinguish Your rights to rely on this subsection with regard to the older
     Licensed Work(s) which meet the conditions of this subsection.

  d) Any use that would have been deemed "Fair Use" by the United States Federal
     Courts.

  e) Use in small personal businesses -- meaning You are using the Licensed
     Work in a personal business where You are a sole proprietor with revenue
     less than 3 times the personal median income in Your country or economic
     region, or if both is applicable, whichever is higher. Once Your business
     grows beyond this limit, You are given a temporary waiver of additional
     six months to make separate agreements with the Licensor by the means
     described in Section 3(a) and/or 3(b). The Licensor is under no obligation
     to agree to any terms beyond the scope of this License, and may refuse to
     make such separate agreements with or without reason.

     If You rely on this exemption, You agree to provide evidence that Your
     income meets the requirement of this section upon the Licensor's demand. A
     written and signed declaration to that effect, from a professional
     accountant who is recognized by a relevant professional body as such, is
     deemed sufficient. Any other reasonable way to provide such evidence is
     also acceptable. However, You providing such evidence does not in any way
     bar any persons taking legal action against You in case of a dispute.
