Office 2011 license question - does one user really mean one user?

    I helped someone research and buy a MacBook Air recently. She purchased MS Office 2011 Home & Business and got the 2 licence pack, as she thought she'd give me a licence as a thank you for my help. It was loaded on her MBA and now I have the box & disc.

    Upon closer inspection, the top left hand corner says:

    1 User 2 Macs

    Can I (another, second user) use the second licence? Will there be any issues with two users using this 1 User/2Macs MS Office pack?

    We are not on the same network/building suburb etc but clearly our Macs would identify us as different users/names.

    Legally speaking it is meant for one user and 2 computers belonging to that user. I'll stop talking here.
