Am I allowed under the license agreement to keep using a previous version of matlab after I install a newer version?

I have the home edition. I would like to keep using release 2020a along with release 2021a, which I got recently because I am afraid of a script or program for breaking. I am a new user of Matlab so right now it's hard to fix old programs in the most recent release..
Can anyone tell me where in the license agreement this question can be answered?

You can always call them and ask. I have a professional license and for that it's not unusual to have multiple versions installed on a single computer and you can use them all.
By the way, what line of code broke going from 2020a to 2021a? Was some function finally removed that you were using?

Regarding what broke, nothing yet but I am expectiing something to break because I am using really complex and long programs. With older programs I get a lot of red messages while using the programs and some had to be fixed (not by me) because it didn't run at all
