Lettermin Webfont License Agreement
By downloading the Font Software you, the user, acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Lettermin Webfont License Agreement, also called the Lettermin End-User License Agreement. Upon payment in full, Lettermin grants you a worldwide, revocable, non-exclusive and non-transferable license to link the Webfont to websites using the @font-face selector in css files under the following terms and conditions.
Whenever used in this Agreement with an initial capital letter, the terms defined below, whether used in the singular of the plural, will have the following meanings:
“Lettermin” is defined as Lettermin d. o. o., Miheličeva 14, SI–1215 Ljubljana, Europe.
“Font”, “Fonts” or “Font Software” have identical meanings and mean the designs of the fonts and the software identified on Your sales receipt that produces a typeface design(s) together with any other artworks that may be associated with the font.
A “webfont” is typeface font software that has been created, optimised, translated or otherwise specially modified for use on the Internet for styling or viewing text on a website.
The “domain” is the host name of a website’s home page. The domain may be comprised of one unique second-level domain name (as in “example” of http://www.example.com), multiple top-level domains (as in .com, .org, .si, etc.), and multiple sub-domains (as in “shop” of shop.example.com, or “blog” of blog.example.com, etc.). Under this License you must own the domain and control the content of the licensed websites.
A “website” is defined as a collection of related web pages organised under a single domain. The website may be viewed with a web browser and/or via a web-based mobile app provided that the webfonts are not included or embedded as explained in sections 4 and 7.
A “pageview” is one request for the viewing of a page of your website.
The user, “you”, “your” and the “end user” are understood as the licensee of the webfonts and the party that owns the domain of a website using or planning to use Lettermin webfonts. It is understood that you also control the content of the licensed websites. An end user is not defined as a distributor, reseller, dealer, sub-licensee, original equipment manufacturer (“oem”), server administrator, or other wholesale buyer of software, etc. Lettermin products may not be distributed and/or sold to third parties without prior written consent from Lettermin.
“EULA”, “Agreement”, “License” means this Lettermin Desktop License Agreement.
(This sections defines the expressions used throughout this eula.)
2. Permitted uses and restrictions
2.1 Formats and use
The Webfonts are provided to you for use via the css @font-face declaration. (If the font file itself won’t be embedded in the website (for example, when the font is used in a static graphic image such as a logo) you should purchase a Desktop License instead.) Any other techniques of transmitting or viewing the Font Software (like sIFR or Cufón) are strictly prohibited. It is strictly forbidden to use the Font Software in other formats than provided by Lettermin. The Font Software will be transmitted for your use in the eot and woff formats. Lettermin reserves the right to include or omit additional formats at its discretion in the future. You may not link to the full, cff OpenType or TrueType font designed for desktop installation. You must include the entire commented header in the provided css file.
Viewing and printing pages of the website using the Webfonts is allowed. However, providing the ability for a remote user to edit text using the Webfonts is not allowed if the result is a new document, such as a personalised invitation, greeting card, customised portfolio or customised product. The Webfonts are licensed for your use only. You may not use the Webfonts as a tool or resource for third parties to create customised products or documents.
(This means we will provide the fonts in the most appropriate format for use in all common browsers and you can’t use any other formats. Viewing and printing pages of the website is allowed, but if your site offers a method for creating customised products, physical or otherwise, you may need to upgrade your license.)
2.2 Domain and hosting
Lettermin’s Webfonts are specifically created for self-hosting. Third-party hosting is strictly prohibited. The Lettermin Webfont License Agreement is limited to the number of domains specified on your sales receipt. Each licensed primary domain is the host name of a home page (for example: example.com) and it can have a maximum of five (5) subdomains (for example: blog.example.com).
You agree to take appropriate actions to ensure the Webfonts are only available for the process of styling text on your licensed domain. You should for example prevent unlicensed third-party access (hot-linking) and disallow direct download of the Webfonts unrelated to the process of styling text for the licensed domain.
You are not permitted to redirect or otherwise use the Software for the benefit of unlicensed third parties. If you anticipate using the Font Software for the creation of a third party website you or the third party must purchase appropriate licenses and ensure that your client or end user is properly licensed for use of the Font Software.
(This means only self-hosting is allowed and the license is only valid for the number of domains shown on your receipt. An unlimited license is also available. These fonts are licensed for your use. You may not share the usage with others. Specifically, you are not allowed to use these fonts on your server as a de facto webfont hosting service for others.)
2.3 Pageview limitations
The average monthly traffic of your website(s), measured in pageviews over the span of three (3) consecutive months, must not exceed the amount specified on your sales receipt. If it does, you must purchase a license upgrade for the increased pageview amount.
(This means that the total traffic on you websites should not exceed the number of pageviews allowed by your license. If it does, you have to buy an upgrade. An unlimited license is also available.)
2.4 Fixed terms
The terms and price associated with this License are based upon the number of domains and maximum pageviews.
If you anticipate an increase in traffic or an increase in the number of domains you should notify Lettermin as early as possible. You are not entitled to a refund, offset or other adjustment in the event of a reduction in the number of domains or a reduction in traffic, irrespective of the reasons.
(This means you can upgrade your license to cover additional domains and increased pageviews at any time, but you can’t downgrade and get a refund if you have bought a bigger license than you need.)
2.5 Desktop installation
This License covers the use of the Lettermin Font Software as webfonts. Downloading Lettermin Font Software for use on a desktop, laptop or workstation is controlled and only permitted under a different license which must be purchased separately. If you wish to use and/or install the Font Software on your desktop or personal computer or on a server for use and access by a desktop or personal computing device, additional licensing is required. There is a single- or multi-user license available for desktop installation.
(This means that the license only applies to using fonts on the web via the @font-face css tag. You can’t use these fonts on your desktop computer unless you purchase a different license.)
You will not transfer the License Agreement and/or the rights granted to You therein, to a third party, neither partially, nor completely. You may not in any way sublicense, sell, lease, rent, lend, re-serve or give away the Lettermin Font Software and its documentation to another person or entity. This License Agreement and rights granted herein is non-transferable, unless You have written permission from Lettermin.
All rights not expressly granted under this License are reserved to Lettermin. Except as may be otherwise expressly permitted herein, You agree not to copy the Font Software or create derivative works based upon the design of the Font or the Font Software.
(This means that you can’t transfer the fonts or the rights granted herein in any way, unless you have prior written permission from Lettermin.)
2.7 Provision to Third Parties
You may temporarily provide the Webfont to a website developer, agent or independent contractor, who is working on your behalf, ONLY IF the developer, agent or independent contractor agrees in writing to use the Font exclusively for your work, according to the terms of this eula, and retains no copies of the Font upon completion of the work.
(This means that you can let a contractor use the fonts when they are working on your behalf but they must delete them after finishing the job.)
3. Rights reserved
You expressly acknowledge that the Font Software, the designs embodied therein, the trade names and/or trademarks and copyrights associated therewith are each the exclusive property of Lettermin. All rights not expressly granted under this License are reserved to Lettermin.
(This means that by buying the license you only buy the right to use the fonts. The fonts themselves remain the exclusive property of Lettermin.)
You may not modify, adapt, translate, reformat, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, alter or otherwise copy the Lettermin Font Software or the designs embodied therein, except as may be otherwise expressly permitted in this Agreement or by a separate written contract.
(This means that you can’t modify or reverse engineer the fonts.)
5. Back-up copies
You are permitted to make a reasonable number of back-up copies suitable for your usage. You agree to retain exclusive custody and control over any such copy. The unauthorised sharing, lending, renting, sale, or other unauthorised use or misuse of a back-up copy is a material breach of this Agreement and will result in the immediate termination of this License.
You may not in any way sublicense, sell, lease, rent, lend, or give away the Lettermin Font Software and its documentation to another person or business.
(This means that you can back up the font data, but you may not give or lend copies to other people.)
6. Copyrights and trademarks
The Lettermin Font Software is protected under domestic and international trademark, copyright and industrial design law. You agree that the Font Software and documentation, and all copies thereof, are owned by Lettermin, and such structure, organization, and code are valuable property of Lettermin. You acknowledge that the Font Software and the documentation is, among other means, protected by the laws of the Republic of Slovenia, by the copyright and design laws of other nations and by other treaties. You agree to treat the Font Software as you would any other copyrighted material, such as a book. Except as may be otherwise expressly permitted herein, you agree not to copy the Font Software or create derivative works based upon the design of the Font or the Font Software.
You agree to use trademarks associated with the Font Software according to accepted trademark practice. You will identify all licensed Webfonts to visitors of websites only by the Webfont’s original name and in accordance with accepted trademark practice, including identification of the trademark owner’s name. The Website’s font selection user interface must display the licensed Webfont’s original name(s) and cite its source. The use of any trademark as herein authorised does not give you any rights on or to intellectual property rights in the Font Software, the documentation, and any associated trademarks.
(This means that the fonts are copyrighted and protected by copyright, trademark, design and other applicable laws. This means that by buying the license you only buy the right to use the fonts and only in ways specified in this license. The fonts themselves remain the exclusive property of Lettermin.)
7. Embedding and broadcasting
Webfonts are only and exclusively to be used for displaying text on a website. The embedding of the fonts in Flash (.swf ) is allowed with this License Agreement, under the same conditions as @font-face embedding. It’s prohibited to embed the Font Software in any documents (for example in pdf documents) other than your website, and it’s also prohibited to use the Font Software for other services that are rendering the fonts. You may not use the Webfonts for ancillary or derived products.
This License expressly prohibits embedding the Font Software into electronic books, game playing devices, gaming or gambling devices or using the fonts in exhibition or display in cinemas, motion pictures, on television or on cable television, or as a part of any works broadcast or transmitted on the Internet.
This License also expressly prohibits the embedding, inclusion, calling or linking of the Font Software within hardware and software in any form whatsoever. This includes, but is not limited to, video games, server-side applications, online document creation, mobile apps and oem products or software.
(This is just a webfont license. You can’t embed or use the fonts in other ways.)
8. Termination of agreement
This License is effective until terminated. Lettermin reserves the right to decline to license its Font Software to any licensee at our sole discretion. At the sole discretion of Lettermin, the Font Software may be discontinued or be replaced with an alternative at any time without prior notice and any rights granted to use the Font Software may be revoked, and you, your employer and/or your client if applicable, agree not to use Lettermin Font Software in the future.
Any breach of the terms of this License will be cause for immediate termination without the obligation of notice or opportunity to cure. Lettermin reserves the right to claim punitive damages. Upon such termination you will destroy the original and any copies of the Font Software and related documentation and cease all use of the trademarks.
(This means that if any of the terms are broken, the license is no longer valid, but we also have the right to revoke it at our discretion.)
You expressly acknowledge and agree that use of the Font Software is at your sole risk. Except as may be otherwise provided for herein, the Font Software and related documentation is provided “AS IS” and without warranty of any kind and LETTERMIN MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE. LETTERMIN DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE OPERATION OF THE FONT SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT THE FONT SOFTWARE IS WITHOUT DEFECTS. THE FONT SOFTWARE IS NOT INTENDED AND WAS NOT DESIGNED OR MANUFACTURED FOR USE IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE THE FAILURE OF THE FONT SOFTWARE COULD LEAD TO DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE. LETTERMIN WILL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE TO THE LICENSED USER OR ANY OTHER THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING DAMAGES FROM LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT, EVEN IF LETTERMIN HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Under no circumstances will Lettermin’s liability exceed the substitution or the replacement cost of the Font Software, whichever is less and at the sole discretion of Lettermin.
The terms of this Agreement are contractual in nature.
(This means that we don’t provide any warranty and we can’t guarantee that the fonts will be appropriate for your projects.)
10. Laws and agreements
This Agreement will be governed by the laws in force in the Republic of Slovenia.
This Agreement constitutes the entire understanding between the parties and supersedes all previous Agreements, promises, representations and negotiations between the parties concerning the Font Software.
This Agreement may be amended by the written Agreement of the parties. Lettermin expressly reserves the right to amend or modify its License Agreements at any time and without prior notification.
No waiver by either party, whether express or implied, of any provision of this Agreement will constitute a continuing waiver of such provision or a waiver of any other provision of this Agreement. No waiver by either party, whether express or implied, of any breach or default by the other party, will constitute a waiver of any other breach or default of the same or any other provision of this Agreement.
If any provision of this Agreement is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect, and the invalid provision will be replaced by Lettermin with a valid and enforceable provision that most closely effects the intent of the invalid provision.
