Default Windows 10 Key Activation

So I purchased a Windows 10 key from an eBay seller. I've done this often with no issues. I tend to stay away from the bargain basement "grey market" sellers and only deal with someone who seems legit.

I received the key and a message showing a step-by-step for activation:

"Please simply copy and paste in command prompt as administrator."

slmgr.vbs -upk
slmgr /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX (this is where the key was written)
slmgr /skms kms.digiboy.ir
slmgr /ato

I thought "Forget that. I'll just copy and paste the code into Windows Activation." No dice. I received the following error message:

"We can't activate Windows on this device because we can't connect to your organization's server. Make sure that you're connected to your organization's network and try again."

So here's my questions: is there a risk if I run the code as suggested? Like, will my machine be tied to an activation server?
