End User Licence Agreement
Modern graphic design almost always involves design for print and screen — and that is why we came up with a licence that includes both desktop and web uses. Now you can install the fonts on your computer, use them in all your programmes (Microsoft office, Adobe software…) and at the same time you can embed the included WebFonts through @font-face technology in the corresponding web project.
The following is an agreement between you (the user/licencee) and the foundry TypeMates (licencer / TypeMates, Runge Thomsen GbR). If you do not accept these terms, you will not be able to purchase the font software licence and you may not use the fonts.
What you are purchasing from TypeMates is a licence to use our fonts (font software). You are purchasing the rights to use the fonts with respect to the following terms and conditions. You are not purchasing the copyright of the typeface.
Depending on the license, our fonts will be delivered in the following formats: OpenType (OTF), TrueType (TTF), as well as WebFont formats (EOT, WOFF, WOFF2). Additional formats are available on request, but may require an additional licence.
With the purchase or installation of our fonts you agree to the following:
You are allowed to install the fonts on your computer and embed them on websites via @font-face.
You will be charged once, with the price based on the number of users and/or estimated pageviews per month that you require. Pageviews are time based, are not limited by geography, but pageviews must be for pages that belong to the same organisation/agency and all domains and sub-domains must belong to the licencee.
The use of this font is limited to the number of users and the number of pageviews detailed on the invoice you received with the purchase of the font. If you increase the number of users or pageviews beyond the number detailed on the invoice, you will lose the right to continue to use the fonts until you update your license to include additional users or pageviews.
You may embed the fonts in static documents (e.g. PDFs). However, you have to take care they are securely embedded (in read/print-only mode), ensuring the recipient cannot extract the fonts.
You may not convert the fonts to other font formats, nor may you modify, decompile or instruct a third party to convert, modify or decompile them. Nevertheless, you are allowed to subset our WebFonts.
You may make a back-up copy on a second computer. Registered users of www.typemates.com are, through their account, able to download fonts they have licenced at any time.
This licence is not transferable. In the event that you do not want to use the font, you may not give your rights of use or licence to a third party and you cannot sell, nor sub-licence the font licence or fonts.
You may not give the fonts to a person who does not own a licence for the font. (In special cases the fonts may be given to a printer, but they have to accept the licence and delete/uninstall the fonts after finishing the job)
You may not embed the fonts into an app, or eBook without a Smart Embedding licence. Contact us, or just purchase one directly in our shop.
You may not embed the fonts into hardware (for example: the displays of washing machines, toasters, or devices like a GPS navigator, eReader). To do that, you will need a custom licence and should contact us.
If the yearly gross revenue of the licencee exceeds € 3,000,000 the licencee is not allowed to use our fonts in their logo, in television broadcasts, cinema movies or in internet streams. Furthermore the licencee may not use our fonts for products that reproduce letter shapes like, for example, house numbers, stamps, craft templates or punched letters. Usage of this sort requires an enlarged and customised licence and, if you are in doubt, contact us for more information.
Warranty and limitation of liability
TypeMates fonts can be returned or replaced only if they are defective. Defective fonts will be replaced if you have a valid proof of purchase and inform us about the error within 30 days of purchase. This warranty does not apply to font data that has been converted, manipulated or altered by you.
If not caused by gross negligence or malicious intent by us, TypeMates shall not be liable for any consequences, property or legal responsibility — including, but not limited to, lost profits and/or lost data — as a consequence of using our fonts.
Any violation of this agreement by you, the licensee, will terminate this license. In case of termination, you are obligated to immediately remove all our fonts and all copies from your system and certify this to us, the licensor.
This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany. This Agreement shall not be subject to the United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded.
The court of jurisdiction is in Hamburg, Germany.
TypeMates reserves the right to modify this license at any time without notice. However, it will not restrict your previously purchased rights within the license.
Should a regulation of this contract be invalid in whole or part, the validity of other regulations shall remain unaffected.
