You have no rights to the Font Software other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement. If the number of users who use the Font Software exceeds those set forth in the definition of Licensed Unit above, then you must request from Fust & Friends an appropriate license covering all users.

2. Requirements and restrictions

a. Embedding, online documents & interactive media.
You may embed the Font Software in documents, applications or devices either as a rasterized representation of the Font Software (e.g., a GIF or JPEG file) or as a subset of the Font Software (e.g., as part of a PDF file) as long as the document, application or device is distributed in a secure format that permits only the viewing and printing but not the editing of the text. You need an additional OEM license (i) for the use of the Font Software in documents, applications or devices permitting editing of the text, if such documents, applications or devices shall be distributed to third parties or (ii) if the Font Software is embedded neither as a subset nor as a rasterized representation (e.g., video games, e-books, apps, media devices like smart phones and e-book readers). You need an additional web font license to use @ font-face embedding for websites. These additional license types can be obtained from Fust & Friends and partly from Fust & Friends distribution partners.

b. Letterforms in Products
You may not use the Font to create alphabet or letterform products for resale where the product consists of individual letterforms, including rubber stamps, die-cut products, stencil products, or adhesive sticker alphabet products where the likeness of the Font can be reproduced and the end-user of said products can create their own typesetting. An extended license to produce these may be available for an additional fee.
However, you may create typographic products using the Font if the product consists of commonly recognized words or phrases. For example: a rubber stamp that has the words "Thank You" or a sticker that says "Great!" or the equivalent in other languages.

c. Icons, dingbats and patterns in Products
You may not use illustrations or images in the Font other than letterforms, numbers, punctuation marks, diacritics, etc., in a manner where the illustration or image becomes the primary aspect of a product for resale. For example, a dingbat image in the font cannot be the sole design element on a coffee cup, t-shirt, greeting card, etc., intended for resale, unless an extended license is acquired at an (affordable) additional fee.

d. Broadcasting.
For using the Font Software in broadcasts, video or film, an additional broadcasting license is needed and needs to be acquired prior to first use. Broadcast and film usage refers to the use of the Font Software in titling, credits or other text for any onscreen broadcast via television, video or motion picture. The broadcasting license is an annual renewable license extension.
Exceptions will be made for art and music videos with a budget under 15.000 Euros.

3. Storage, backup & printing.
You may make back-up copies of the Font Software for archival purposes only, provided that you retain exclusive custody and control over such copies. The Font Software may not be installed or used on a server that can be accessed via the internet or other external network system (a system other than a LAN) by workstations which are not part of a Licensed Unit. The number of output devices is not restricted, provided that these devices do not store the Font Software permanently.

4. Service bureaus.
You may take a digitized copy of the Font Software used in a particular document to a commercial printer or service bureau for outputting this particular document (this document must not be edited by the printer or service bureau). In the event of any modifications to the document or use of the Font Software for other purposes, the printer or service bureau must purchase its own Font Software licenses.

6. Copying.
Except as granted in points 2 to 4, you may not copy the Font Software or allow third parties to copy the Font Software. Any copy of the Font Software must contain the same copyright, trademark, and other proprietary information as the originals.

7. Modifications.
You may adapt, modify, alter, translate, convert, and install the font software into another format for use in other environments, subject to the following conditions: A computer on which the converted font software is used or installed shall be considered as one of your permitted number of computers. Use of the font software you have converted shall be pursuant to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Such converted font software may be used for your own customary internal business or personal use exclusively, and may not be distributed or transferred for any purpose. You may not modify or remove the name(s) of the font software, author's signature, copyright and trademark notices from the original files.

8. Transfer of license.
You may not rent, lease, sublicense, give, lend, or further distribute the Font Software, parts of it, or any copy thereof, except as expressly provided herein.

9. Ownership & credits.
The Font Software, and all copies thereof, is protected by the United States Copyright Law, by the copyright and design laws of other nations, and by international treaties. Any copyright, trademark and other rights belong exclusively to Fust & Friends and its type designers. You do not gain the ownership of the Font Software under this Agreement. You agree to credit Fust & Friends as the trademark and copyright owner of the Font Software and list the font names in any design or production credits.

10. Termination.
Fust & Friends has the right to terminate your license immediately if you fail to comply with any term of this Agreement. Upon termination, you must destroy the original and any copies of the Font Software and Documentation.

11. Warranties.
Fust & Friends cannot be held responsible for any damages caused or supported by you and/or third party resulting out of any use of, or inability to use, the Font Software. Neither is Fust & Friends liable in case of (mis)interpretation of shapes in the fonts, resulting in legal procedures.

12. Final provisions.
Should individual terms of this contract become invalid or unenforceable, all others will remain in full force and effect. This contract is subject to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. You acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

13. Your pride, our pride
We highly appreciate receiving samples, in kind or digitally, of work producing using fonts from Fust & Friends. Contact us if you have something to show! Do not send objects from countries outside the EU before contacting us, as German customs fees can be costly, and the customs officers quite stern. Besides, they sometimes keep you waiting for hours.
