Can someone clear up the licensing position for me. If I want to use the arcgis online basemaps (world imagery and world topographic map probably) in an arcgis server based application, does the statement in the license summary (my emphasis)

You may...
'Use ArcGIS Online maps and map layers, imagery, and geometry services only in conjunction with Esri software or an
ArcGIS Online subscription for projects and applications that are both internal and external use'

mean that this is only possible if the application is made publically accessible as well as for internal business use, or can it be only externally accessible via a login process/vpn?
