Given that you already have a contract with Oracle, your best option probably is to contact them and ask them directly. Oracle has several licensing policies (per user, per processor etc.) and that may affect the answer.

In any case, Oracle's XE edition is free. If your testing/backup requirements fit within the limitations of the XE edition, you can use it for free.
