2 – ONLINE LICENCE (for websites)
It is not allowed without written permission by EuropaType to use or convert EuropaType Font Software for any web embedding via HTML/Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), EOT @font-face, OTF/TTF @font-face, sIFR, js.typeface, WEFT, Cufon or similar solutions not mentioned. We have to take legal steps if you do embed EuropaType Font Software without permission.
Adobe Typekit provides web font solutions for most of the EuropaType fonts. It uses a server based technology linking the font files to the requested website.
3 – DISTRIBUTION LICENCE (for apps, devices, products etc.)
If you are a Software Producer or an Original Equipment Manufacturer and want to purchase EuropaType Font Software to embed it in your software package (e.g. apps) or incoporate it in your devices or products, a special Distribution Licence is required. Embeding our Font Software in an app, device or product is not covered by our Standard Licence. Each app, device or product needs its own Distribution Licence. Distribution Licences for Companies including all of their apps, devices or products can be requested.
In contrast to the Standard Licence the Distribution Licence for EuropaType Font Software for apps, devices and products are licensed by time (years) and not per Workingstation/CPU (Central Processing Unit).
Licences are available for different lenghts of time (years). The basic Licence is valid for 1 year. Further options are: 3 years, 5 years or perpetual use.
If you prefer not to licence our Font Software by time (years) but rather in relation to your sales we can arrange an fixed agreement.
4 – SPECIAL LICENCES
In some cases, your choice of Licence is complicated due to the scale of the user base or intended use for the Font Software. Please contact EuropaType to discuss the divers licencing options or to get a quote for the following options:
NON EDITABLE EMBEDDING LICENSE UPGRADE FOR PUBLISHING
The normal End User Licence permits embedding of the Font Software into non-editable files for output only. If you need to embed EuropaType Font Software in a non-editable file (e.g. PDF) that will be distributed to more than 100 recipients then you will need this Licence Upgrade.
ENTERPRISE LICENCE (large number of Licences required)
The Enterprise Licence is ideal for corporate identity situations where, in addition to internal use, the Font Software needs to be used by affiliates, dealers, distributors, agents, or suppliers in order to create and maintain a brand. The Enterprise Licence can also work very well for a product advertising campaign. A client purchasing this Enterprise Licence is permitted to install the Font Software on all workstations owned by the entity (company or organisation) licencing the Font Software, and to distribute the Font Software to anyone outside their entity with a special End User License Agreement that limits use of the Font Software to work for the client.
