Using a YOOtheme product for your client projects is only granted if you primarily sell your service to your client and not the product itself. If you wish to continue the usage of the product for new website projects you need to renew your membership after the existing membership has expired.

The site licenses are not time-limited, so you may continue to use the chosen product even after the date your membership expires. During the membership duration you have access to the support and updates of your chosen products.
