Now for the small print. When you buy a font online you are essentially buying the right to use that font software. Similar to other software packages, fonts are licensed on a per user basis or in the case of web fonts on the average number of monthly page views.
When you purchase a FontFont you agree to the terms as stated in the End User License Agreement (EULA) and will receive a copy of the agreement with the font documentation. The terms of the EULA vary depending on the format of the font that you buy.
If you purchase a desktop font (such as an OpenType FontFont or Office FontFont) we offer a basic EULA which covers up to five users. If you require a font for more than five users then you will receive a Multi-User Licence Agreement (MUL). The MUL is automatically generated when you order online and enter the number of users, the price also adjusts accordingly. If you would like to buy a font for over 1000 users, please contact us.
There are separate agreements specifically for Web FontFonts, App+ FontFonts and for Free Fonts.
As with most software, fonts are licensed to individuals and organisations – and our license agreements do not permit the distribution of the font software to third parties.
The full licences can be found below:
- End User License Agreement for FontFont Typefaces (OpenType and Office)
- End User License Agreement for Web FontFonts
- End User License Agreement for App+ FontFonts
- End User License Agreement for Free FontFonts
We also offer special licences such as an Unlimited License for an unlimited number of internal users and a Non-Affiliate License if you want to provide your licensed fonts to an external partner (such as an agency or service bureau) for work solely related to the licensee.
If you have specific questions about which license you require or would like to speak to us about special licenses, please do feel free to get in touch.
