Publishing games in third-party sites

I've got a game published here in itch.io that I'd like to publish in Kongregate as well. The problem is, they have a 50 mb upload limit that I'm way over. So, since it's in HTML5 and Kongregate allows publishing as an iframe leading to a game hosted elsewhere, I thought I'd put the itch.io hosted version there. My question is, is this allowed? Since I'd be using itch.io bandwidth to have people play my game outside this site. I couldn't find anything about it in the TOS or FAQ, so I'm asking here. Thanks!

We provide a game embed code that you can use: https://itch.io/updates/introducing-game-embeds

If you try to link directly to the game's file uploaded to our CDN it may break in the future if we ban hotlinking, so I recommend using the embed code generator.

Thanks! It worked well with the embed code.

Can we get direct embed codes of other people's HTML 5 games (besides our own)...or just their Widget? 

Are developers allowed to share their direct embed codes with others?
