Dear font user
By downloading, accessing, or using the fonts provided to you, you accept these terms and conditions.
Colophon or imprint
We would appreciate it if you mentioned our name and the font name in the colophon or imprint of your publication or website. For example, you could say Type set in TheSans Mono from LucasFonts. By the way, this entire website is in fact set in TheSans Mono, which you can purchase here.
Once LucasFonts has received your license fee, LucasFonts will grant you a non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable license to use the fonts. All rights to the fonts and all intellectual property embodied in them are retained by LucasFonts. You are not allowed to distribute the fonts or to modify, convert, reverse engineer, decompile, or create derivative works based on them. If you want to modify the fonts for personal use, you have other special wishes, or you are unsure whether the way you want to use the fonts is allowed, please contact email@example.com.
If the fonts are not working like you expect them to, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The fonts are provided as is but we will do our best to engineer a workaround. LucasFonts does not guarantee any results and disclaims all express or implied warranties.
If the license you purchased allows you to embed the fonts or install them on an intranet server, you need to do so securely and make sure the fonts are not accessible by end users. Please, for the love of god, don’t put the fonts in public GitHub repositories. That is clearly not allowed.
If you breach this agreement, then all your rights automatically terminate, you have to immediately stop using the fonts, and in addition to any legal rights LucasFonts has, you will be responsible for all costs LucasFonts incurs enforcing this agreement.
You agree that LucasFonts will not be liable for anything bad that happens and will never have to pay for consequential, incidental, or special damages, including any lost profits or lost savings. However if for some reason some authority like a court or governing body with jurisdiction decides that LucasFonts is liable for something, then LucasFonts’s liability will never exceed the license fee it received.
This document contains the entire agreement relating to its subject matter and supersedes any prior agreements or understandings, whether verbal or written. No modification of this agreement will be valid or enforceable unless it is in the form of a written document signed by LucasFonts. If LucasFonts waives a right, that does not mean it is waived for the future. If any part of this agreement is found void or unenforceable, it will not affect the validity of the rest of the agreement. This agreement is governed by the laws of Germany and any disputes or legal proceedings will be handled exclusively in Berlin — and by that we mean the Berlin that is the capital of Germany, not the one in Schleswig-Holstein and definitely not the ones in Canada, Russia, South Africa, El Salvador, Antarctica, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, or Wisconsin.
This section only applies to you if you purchased a desktop license.
You can install the fonts on the number of computers for which you purchased a license, as long as the computers are within one company. Alternatively, you can install the fonts on an intranet server as long as all users are employees who work directly for you. Each user of the fonts on the intranet server counts as one computer. If anyone other than you and your direct employees will use the fonts or create anything with them then they need to purchase their own license. If someone else needs to use the fonts please contact email@example.com for a discounted service license.
You can embed the fonts into documents for in-house use, but you need to buy an ePub license if you want to distribute them commercially. You can give completed documents with embedded fonts to a printer, but you are not allowed to give them the font files unless they have also purchased a license.
The embedding bits in our fonts allow print and preview. If you need editable embedding (to enable users who do not have fonts installed to edit documents with embedded fonts), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This section only applies to you if you purchased a web license.
You can use the fonts with CSS @font-face on the website domains for which you purchased a license. This license is perpetual and is valid for the website domains and number of monthly page views for which you purchased a license. Subdomains like subdomain.domain.com are included. You do not have to purchase an upgrade for your license unless you exceed that number of page views three months in a row.
You are not allowed to use conversion tools on the fonts; you can only use WOFF and WOFF2 files that were provided to you by us. The use of other formats such as TTF and OTF is not allowed on the web.
This section only applies to you if you purchased an app license.
You can embed the fonts into the app for which you purchased a license. This license is valid for the number of developers for whom you purchased a license. If you get more developers working on the app, then you need to upgrade your license. If the same developers work on different apps that have the fonts embedded in them, each of those apps requires a separate license.
This section only applies to you if you purchased an ePub license.
You can embed the fonts into the titles for which you purchased a license and you can commercially distribute those titles. A recurring title like a monthly magazine counts as one title.
