Is it legal to download and use Access 2003 runtime?

Hi,
Regarding legality.   Is it legal for anyone do download and install the Access 2003 runtime from
<link removed by SouthMod>
and use it for their own purposes like  running my application or any other?    If not, it would not be ethical for me to suggest that they do it.  And I would still need to locate and purchase the Access 2003 Developer Extensions to produce a legitimate runtime environment for use with my application.  dhs

You can often use the 2007 or 2010 runtimes (which are free) to run your 2003 .mde/.mdb files. You should thoroughly test this, of course, but many people have reported good results doing this.
