While the agreements, the ordering documents or the invoices with all the rights they contain are in your possession and all you have to do is keep them safe, the online documentation has to be accessed and followed on a regular basis because it is subject to change. You should keep track of the changes in the online sources, to understand what you are entitled to use at a certain moment in time, in a changing world.
