End User License Agreement

  • 1
    Contractual relationship
  • This is an agreement between you, the purchaser and/or licensee, and Grilli Type US, Inc., a subsidiary of Grilli Type AG (hereafter collectively Grilli Type). By purchasing, or downloading, or installing, or using, or otherwise handling the digital typeface software (hereafter Font or Fonts), you accept the terms of this agreement. In accepting the terms of this agreement, you acknowledge understanding and complying with its terms.

    This is a contract between you and us. You agree to these and the following terms by downloading and using the font software.

    If you do not wish to enter into this Agreement, do not purchase, access, download and/or install or otherwise use the Fonts.

    Don’t use our fonts in any way if you don’t accept this agreement.

    Outside of their legal use as described in this license, you may not distribute, lend, rent, sell, give away, publicly or privately share any modified or unmodified version of the Fonts.

     
  • 1.1
    Replacement of all previous agreements
  • This agreement replaces and supersedes any previously made oral or written proposal or agreement between you and Grilli Type.

     
  • 1.2
    License and copyright
  • You are purchasing the rights, meaning a non-exclusive, non-transferable, perpetual, and worldwide license, to use the Fonts as specified in this agreement. You are not purchasing the copyright to the design or any other part of the Fonts. The copyright lies with its original designer and will remain so, even if Grilli Type customized the Fonts.

    You can use the fonts globally and forever, but you can’t transfer the license to your client or anyone else.
  • 1.3
    Buying on behalf of a third party
  • You, the purchaser, are acting on behalf of and are legally permitted to bind the end user, to accept this EULA as it is, i.e. without any alterations and/or amendments. You are not allowed to ask the end user any other price than the one offered by Grilli Type. By purchasing licensing for a third party you are not allowed to use the respective software yourself.

    You may not be the final licensee, but you are still bound by these terms—as is the organization you are buying the licensing for.

    Definitions
  • Wherever used in this EULA and / or any Licensing add-ons, the meaning shall be the following:

    We’re defining some commonly used terms.
  • 2.1
    Applications
  • “Applications” shall mean applications able to run and function on one of the following operating system platform, on versions that are less than 5 years old: Microsoft Windows, Apple MacOS, Apple iOS, Android, insofar as they support the Font files as they are supplied by Grilli Type. Other operating systems are also covered under this agreement if they support the Font files as they are supplied by Grilli Type, but Grilli Type can not offer any technical support.

    You can use our fonts for apps running on any platform, but we can only offer support for some platforms.
  • 2.2
    Embed
  • “Embed” shall mean the use of Fonts in applications, meaning the embedding of the Font files through various means (depending on the operating system and programming platform) into the application or an application package. The Fonts are used by said application to style dynamic or static text inside those applications. You must neither embed the Fonts into any physical devices directly nor save Font files onto a device and sell, gift, ship, in any other way hand that device to any third party.

    Embedding really means what you’d expect it to mean. You can’t embed fonts into physical devices.
  • 2.3
    Licensing add-ons
  • “Licensing add-ons” shall mean further licensing types, defined in add-ons to this agreement, that can be purchased in addition to the Desktop, Web, and App licensing.

    Special use-cases are solved with licensing add-ons that apply together with this EULA.

Self-employed third parties temporarily working at one of your business locations on your devices are considered part of your organization. You may use the Fonts for the creation of static or moving files like images and videos. This includes the use of Fonts for the creation of logos and broadcasts.

    You can install the licensed fonts on a certain number of computers within your organization, no matter where that is. Freelancers are only covered under certain circumstances. You can use these fonts to create documents, including (but not limited to) images, videos, logos, and broadcast videos.
  • 3.2
    Installations
  • The amount of devices you may install the Fonts on depends on the amount of licenses purchased, as referenced during your purchase and on your invoice. You may not install the Fonts on any further devices, aside from any archival copies.

    You buy licensing for a certain number of computer installations. You can also save archival copies as necessary.
  • 3.3
    File handling

    • – Portable Document Format (PDF)

    You may embed the Fonts into these file formats.

    The Fonts must not be embedded into any other format under this license.

     
  • 3.5
    Modification
  • You must not modify the Fonts (digital typeface software) under any circumstance. You may convert text into vector paths and edit those vector paths in applications that support the Font files.

    You can edit outlined vector paths and raster images created with the fonts, but you must not modify the font software itself.
  • 4
    Web licensing
  • For Web licensing, the following terms apply:

     
  • 4.1
    Usage rights
  • You are purchasing a certain amount of licenses to use Fonts by Grilli Type on web servers under your control, and under control of a single organization, to serve to a specific number of website visitors per month. You are purchasing so-called self-hosted Fonts that you host on your own servers. You must not use the Fonts to create or save any documents, specifically also not raster or vector images.

    You can use the web fonts for a certain number of unique monthly visitors per month. You must not install these fonts to create any documents.
  • 4.2
    On servers under your control
  • “On servers under your control” shall mean that all Fonts are solely stored using online storage (hereafter Servers) to serve websites for which you or your organization have sole administrative access to (aside from the owner of the Server).

    You can only use these fonts on servers that you control.
  • 4.3
    Visitors per month
  • “Visitors per month” shall mean the number of uniquely identifiable users visiting your websites. You have to record and control the number of monthly visitors by using an analytics tool generally recognized to be able to document the number of unique visitors to a website.

    Visitors per month means unique monthly visitors. You have to record this number with an analytics tool.
  • 4.4
    Using your Fonts
  • For each license you purchase, you may install the Fonts on any number of hosting services for any number of domains, as long as the overall number of monthly unique visitors of all websites served from those Servers and domains added up is smaller than the number you have purchased licenses for. The number of allowed unique visitors is noted during your purchase and on your invoice.

    You can use the web fonts on any number of websites, domains, and servers, as long as the total number of monthly unique visitors is covered.
  • 4.5
    Exceeding the number of purchased monthly visitors
  • You have to purchase a licensing upgrade if you exceed your monthly visitors limit at any point in order to cover that larger number of monthly visitors. Grilli Type reserves the right to request and receive screenshots of your analytics tool to prove that the amount of unique visitors per month is below the maximum limit of allowed visitors you have purchased licenses for.

    We reserve the right to control your monthly unique visitors number with screenshots of your analytics tool. We very rarely ask for this.
  • 4.6
    File handling
  • The use of the Fonts on devices in your organization is restricted to preparing their use on Servers, for activities generally called “web development”. You may not upload the Fonts to publicly listed file indexes, meaning file repository systems like Github.

    Only use these fonts for web development work. You’re not allowed to upload the fonts public Github repositories.

    A copy of the Fonts may be sent to a third-party website developer if necessary. The Fonts may be embedded into websites using the CSS @font-face technique. The Fonts may not be embedded into any other format or in any other way under this license.

    If you work with external web developers, you can send them your web font files so they can develop your website.
  • 4.7
    Modification and Subsetting
  • You may not modify the Fonts under any circumstance, except by subsetting the character set of the Fonts, meaning using an application or service to reduce the number of characters or features in the Font while not modifying any of the underlying character designs (also known as the design of the typeface) or Font name tables.

    You’re not allowed to modify the font software, except to subset the character set.

    You may not, under any circumstances, modify the design of the typeface or its Font name tables. Any rights, including but not limited to copyrights and trademarks, of both the original version and the edited version remains with Grilli Type and their respective owners, and the number of unique website visitors covered by the license remains the same.

    Subsetting the font files doesn’t change any rights we and the typeface’s designers reserve, and your licensing tier remains the same.
  • 4.8
    Support for modified versions
  • Grilli Type does not offer any support for, and does not guarantee, the proper functioning of any modified Fonts.

    We can’t offer support for font files you’ve subsetted.
  • 5
    App licensing
  • For App licensing, the following terms apply:

     
  • 5.1
    Usage rights
  • You are purchasing a certain amount of licenses to embed Fonts by Grilli Type in an unlimited number of applications created within your organization, by a certain number of developers of the applications. You must not use the Fonts to create or save any documents, specifically also not raster or vector images.

    You can use the licensed fonts for any number of apps created within your organization. The licensing is limited to a certain number of developers working on your applications (no matter if they personally use the fonts or not). You may not create any documents with these fonts.
  • 5.2
    Installations
  • The number of developers who may use the Fonts for development of the application depends on the amount of licenses purchased, as referenced during your purchase and on your invoice. You may not install the Fonts on any further devices or use them by further developers, aside from archival copies.

    The license is valid for apps created by a certain total number of developers working on these apps. You can also keep archival copies of the fonts.

    The use of the Fonts on devices in your organization is restricted to preparing their use in applications, for activities generally called “application development”. The Fonts may not be used aside from the Fonts’ use as embedded Fonts in your applications.

    These fonts can only be used for app development.
  • 5.3
    File handling
  • A copy of the Fonts may be sent to a third-party app developer if necessary, and these developers count towards your licensed number of developers. The Fonts may not be embedded into any other format or in any other way under this license. Embedding of the Font with the CSS @font-face technology is expressly prohibited, also creating what is commonly known as «virtual terminals». Embedding of the Font into computer files other than application files (for example document formats like PDF, EPS, and PS) is expressly prohibited.

    If you’re working with third-party app developers, you can send them the font files and they can create apps for you with them. The total number of licensed developers must include all developers working for them for your project. You may not use the fonts for other things, like web fonts or to embed the files into formats like PDF, EPS, and PS.
  • 5.4
    Modification
  • You must not modify the Fonts under any circumstance.

  • 6.1
    Licensing add-ons
  • The terms of any Licensing add-ons are in addition to the full terms of this agreement, unless otherwise noted.

    Any potential licensing add-ons’ terms stand in addition to the terms here.
  • 6.2
    Warranty and support
  • We endeavour to produce our Fonts to the most up-to-date technical standard. Can you prove that they do not function as promised, Grilli Type is entitled to cure the shortcoming. Should we fail within 30 days after your first information of curing you may, within another 30 days, ask for a refund. After a refund the respective license terminates with immediate effect and any further use is strictly forbidden.

    We always try our best to make our fonts work perfectly. If anything doesn’t work, you can email us and we have 30 days to fix it. If we can’t fix it and it’s our fault, you have another 30 days to ask for a refund.
  • 6.3
    Breach of contract
  • If you are notified by us, or become aware in another way, of a breach of this Agreement, you have 14 calendar days to rectify the situation to Grilli Type’s reasonable satisfaction. Otherwise the Agreement will be terminated with immediate effect. Any such uncured violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement will terminate your license to use the Fonts.

    Once you learn about a breach of this agreement, you have two weeks to fix the issue. Otherwise you lose your licensing.

    After termination of the Agreement, you must destroy all copies of the Fonts, including your archive copies, and certify this to Grilli Type.

    If that happens, you have to delete all copies of the font files.

    The penalty for breach of the terms and conditions of this EULA is half of the total amount of the license in question, but is always at least US$ 4,000.00. If you have used the Fonts without having purchased a license, the full amount of the license costs in question will be added to the penalty payment.

    Any breach costs at least $4,000, or half of the licensing cost (if it’s more) in fines. In addition, you also have to pay any licensing cost that you didn’t properly pay for previously.

    If you are found to have breached the terms and conditions of this agreement, you bear all costs arising from a dispute about the violation of this agreement. You will reimburse Grilli Type all costs arising from a dispute about violations of this EULA.

    You have to cover our legal cost stemming from such a breach of contract dispute.

    Any payments relating to a breach of contract, including but not limited to penalties, licensing costs, and legal costs, are due within 7 calendar days from our sending of such invoices to you by email or otherwise.

    You have to pay all of that within 7 calendar days of our invoice date.
