End User License Agreement


This License Agreement is made between Fatype, hereinafter called the Licensor, and the buyer hereinafter called the Licensee, who is purchasing the font software, herein referred as “font”, “fonts” or “typefaces”.

 

1. Grant of License
The Licensee must agree to the terms and conditions of this agreement to download, install or use the fonts. Upon full payment, the Licensor grants the Licensee a non exclusive non-transferable license to use the fonts under the following conditions. Every font user must be covered by a license. Each license is valid for one legal entity only. Separate entities must purchase separate licenses. Fonts cannot be shared with clients or third parties. If a client requires fonts, a license must be purchased for the client. Installation and or usage of the fonts without a proper license is strictly forbidden and may lead to legal actions.

 

2. Copyright and general principles
A font is a set of glyph outlines, metrics data and other data digitally encoded into software. The Licensor retains full rights and ownership to intellectual property of the fonts both as artwork and software. The Licensee acknowledges that this Agreement does not grant him any intellectual property rights in the fonts, but only a license to use the font software under certain conditions.
    The Licensee agrees not to decompile, modify, reformat, translate or reverse engineer the fonts, or otherwise discover its source code. Webfonts excepted, fonts may not be uploaded. Fonts may not be copied, duplicated, rented, leased, sublicensed or lent to another person or entity. The Licensee is granted permission to make 2 copies for backup purposes. These backup copies must be reasonably protected from access via internet or network systems. The Licensee will not make or encourage third parties to make derivative or modified versions of the font.

 

3. License types
Fatype grants the Licensee the right to use the fonts according to the Medium(s) and numerical limits (“up to”) set by the license. Fonts cannot be used on other or more mediums than those specified in the license. In case of doubt, or if you think the terms prevent a reasonable usage, please contact us.
    Desktop + Web covers the common purposes of using fonts in software such as desktop publishing and office suites in order to produce documents, logotypes, books, magazines, paper-printed matters, packaging, images, videos, signage, as well as embedding fonts in websites.
With a “Desktop + Web” license, the Licensee may install and use the fonts on the specified number of computers, and upload the webfonts on one (1) website not exceeding the specified “Initial Traffic” at the moment the fonts are uploaded. Additional computers requires additional licensing. The fonts may be used by the Licensee and his employees only, and may not be shared with third parties, for example clients or contractors. The Licensee must be the owner of the website. Additional websites requires additional licensing. Contact us for a discount. The Licensee must register the URL of websites in his Fatype account, under the “My Licenses” section. “Initial Traffic” is the maximum amount of unique visitors per month allowed at the moment the webfonts are uploaded, measured as the average of the last three complete months. After installation of the webfonts, web traffic is unlimited. One website is defined as the content accessible at one single top-level domain name, such as “website.com”. Subdomains, such as “about.website.com” are not counted as additional domains. For multiple top-level domains sharing the same content, we offer discounts, please contact us.
