    Hello greetings to all. Thanks for the help, I am developing educational games for schools and allowing their minds to learn in a more dynamic and fun way, and in turn games that help children with Autism, TDH, cerebral palsy, etc., I have the following questions.
    1. From what I read the games fall into the category of what you call “interactive applications”, but I would like to be sure, since we plan to market these games.
    2. As our project grows we plan to upload the games to a cloud and through the SFTP protocol, users can access our games, also the question is whether it is considered only interactive applications?
    Thank you for your time in answering my questions.

    Hi @andresdelacadena, thanks for getting in touch. Your project seems very interesting and we would like to assist you in any way we can.

    So long as the application in question is not storing data on the system or being used for analysis or research purposes, then you are perfectly entitled to carry on development under the category of interactive applications, so need not worry about requiring the analytical use licence.
    This would continue to apply under the distribution channel you have outlined, so again this is not a cause for concern.

    I hope this clarifies our position, but please do let us know if we can provide any further assistance in this matter. Best Wishes.


    Thanks a lot Grant for your quick response. Could you give me an example of what would you consider store data and research use? The game we propose would do the same things as other common games: create a user, save game scores, etc. However, we are not planning to save sensor data. Also, in the case of children with autism, the game scores would help us to assess cognitive improvements.
    Thanks in advance for any information you can provide me.
    Best wishes,

    Hi @andresdelacadena, game scores and user profiles are perfectly acceptable to store so long as the user statistics stored does not derive from the gaze data itself. However, if you were to use game scores within the context of published research to determine some kind of correlation between gameplay use and cognitive performance, this may be more of a grey area. If this information is purely for your own interest, then the standard licence will still be fine.

    If you would like further clarification, it may be worth speaking to the licencing team directly just to be 100% certain of the situation. you can contact them @ https://analyticaluse.tobii.com/license-application-form/

    Please Let me know if I can provide any further information.
