        Are we allowed to donate these subscription codes to someone who doesn't already have a subscription?

        I got a month free for participating in last month's jam (thanks Epic!), but I'm honestly happy to pay $19/mo for this amazing toolset -- however, I'm fortunate enough to have a non-gamedev day job to fund this hobby. But I remember my 9 year old self many moons ago first leaning to program (BASIC!) and make simple games, and thinking there must be a slew of hobbyists out there who are either too young to have credit cards, or simply unable to scrape together $19 (I've been there). For those people I'd think a one-month, non-recurring, no strings attached subscription code like this would be a great "nudge" to drop that final barrier to learning UE4.

        I'm sure there are all kinds of legal tangles involved with signing up new users who don't have a credit card, or who are under some minimum age to enter into a contract with Epic (to not redistribute the source code, to pay the 5% royalty when applicable, etc), and I definitely don't want to encourage any kids to click "Yes I agree to Epic's legalese" without some guidance from their parents. But I thought it would be nice to put a post in the "UE4 For Students" forum to offer my code to someone who would like to try UE4 but doesn't meet the criteria for a free license, such as someone not attending a secondary school, or enrolled in a relevant course.

        Thanks for being Epic!
