    It used to be in there, but this thread is nearly a year old and the wording of the terms has changed several times since then. However, it does still clearly say that "we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable licence to make personal, non-commercial use of the Spotify Service". If you are in any doubt over whether use in school counts as personal use, the FAQ clearly states that is is not:

    "Can I use Spotify to play music in my bar, restaurant, store, school etc?
    No, the Terms & Conditions that you agree to when registering for Spotify state that Spotify is for personal, non-commercial use."

    Many thanks, that will save me a lot of bother.

    But this is still unclear. A school is not a commercial thing. Also, if you have a paid subscription could it then be used in school?

    It may not be commercial use, but it's also not personal use.

    If Spotify was installed on a teacher's own, personal property that they brought into school and used to play music only for themselves, on headphones, that would qualify as personal use. If it is installed on a computer owned by their employer (not their own property), it no longer counts as personal use.

    The terms for paid subscriptions in this regard are no different from free use.
