End User Font Licence Agreement for Gestalten Webfonts (WOFF/EOT)

This end user Licence Agreement (hereinafter "Agreement") is a legal agreement between you, or, if you represent a legal entity, that legal entity (hereinafter "You") and Die Gestalten Verlag GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter "Gestalten"), and is applicable to the Font Software that is accompanied by this Agreement or that You have ordered online.

By downloading the Font Software or, if You purchased it not online, by installing the Font Software or by opening the package, You agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If You do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, do not download, install, or use the Font Software. If You have purchased Font Software in a sealed retail package and do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, return it unopened to the place of purchase.

1. Definitions

"Font Software" means coded software that is accompanied by this Agreement or that You have ordered online and that generates typeface designs when used with the appropriate hard- and software, plus any and all other data including documentation provided with such software.

"Licensed Unit" means installations of the Font Software that allow the design of Your Websites which have - based on any six consecutive calendar months - not more than the overall monthly average of Pageviews stated on Your invoice for the purchase of the Font Software. If no number of Pageviews is given on your invoice, the licensed number of Pageviews is 500,000 per month. If Your Websites averages (based on a period of six consecutive calendar months) at any given time in the future more than the licensed number of Pageviews per month, You must purchase an extended licence from Gestalten or its authorized distributors.

"Use" means to design Your own personal or business Website with the typeface embodied in the Font Software and to make accessible the Font Software together with Your Website on a web server in order to enable a web browser to render the content of such a Website using the respective Font Software. Use does not include the behaviour set forth in Clause 2.2. below.

"Website" as used here is a connected group of related web pages which form an entity whose content is managed by You, and which are organized under a particular domain name, including sub-domains. The Website can be viewed either over Your local area network or over the Internet. For the avoidance of doubt, web pages on sub-domains whose content is managed by other persons are deemed to be not part of Your Website.

"Pageview" is each request to load a single page of each of Your Websites. Pageviews - also referred to as page impressions or page requests - must be recorded by a commonly accepted or recognized performance tracking system. Gestalten reserves the right to request written copies of your average Pageview reporting statistics.

2. Grant of Licence and Restrictions

2.1. Grant of Licence. Gestalten grants You a non-exclusive licence to Use the Font Software in a Licensed Unit for Your own personal or business purposes according to the terms of this Agreement. If the average number of Pageviews under which the Font Software is Used exceeds the amount set forth in the Licensed Unit, then You must request from Gestalten or its authorized distributors an appropriate licence extension covering all Pageviews; an additional fee will be charged for this licence extension.

2.2. Restriction of Use. You are not allowed to copy, distribute or make the Font Software available to third parties so that they can use it for their purposes or for purposes other than the display of Your Websites.

2.3. No Embedding. You may not embed the Font Software in any documents (e. g. pdf documents), applications or devices other than your Websites. You may not use the Font Software for other services that are rendering the fonts, e. g. pre-press, plotting, exposing, etc. If You wish to use the Font Software for such purposes, You must obtain a separate pre-press font licence from Gestalten or its authorized distributors.
