End User Licence Agreement |
The following is an agreement between you (the user/licencee) and the
foundry Arkitype (licencer / Arkitype, Andrew Footit). 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 Arkitype 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
Depending on the license purchased, our fonts will be delivered in the
following formats: OpenType (OTF), TrueType (TTF), or 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 and Ad impressions 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 make a back-up copy on a second computer. Registered users of
www.arkitype.co 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 OEM licence and should contact us.
If the yearly gross revenue of the licencee exceeds $40,000,000 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
