End-User Licence Agreement

Die Gestalten Verlag GmbH & Co. KG (Gestalten)

Licence Contents

By purchasing fonts from Gestalten, the user is transferred the right to use a limited number of copies of the original font software. This Licence is non-exclusive and not transferable to third parties. The “Single Licence” allows the use on up to five (5) devices (such as computer, printer, digital typesetting machine or other machines generating characters for processing) that belong to the same person or company. In order to further increase the number of devices in excess of this number, “Multi-Licences” have to be acquired as displayed on the website. The Licences do not include the right of resale, sub-Licence and electronic transmission. The Licence does not include the right to modify, reformat or otherwise change the source-code of the font.

Embedding Fonts

Embedding Gestalten fonts into electronic documents (such as PDF, Powerpoint, OpenDoc, PGML or others) is only permitted insofar as same is effected on computers owned by the licensee, and provided, further, that such said computers are registered with a valid license for the said, applicable fonts so embedded. In the event that data is passed on to third parties (e.g. to a service studio, printer, newsletter, or loaded up on an internet page or any such similar usage), then the font information shall, in each instance and prior to any such transfer of any such data to third parties, be converted into non-editable outlines.


All Gestalten fonts have been tested on standard “Mac OS X”- and “Windows XP”- driven computer systems. Possibly some fonts do not include a complete letterset. In this context, please pay also attention to our limitation on liability.

Limitation on Liability

Gestalten does not assume any liability for damage – regardless of the type or extent of damage – resulting from the use or the downloading of fonts by Licencee or a third party in so far as Gestalten can only be blamed for the negligent violation of obligations and/or the respective obligations of our vicarious agents and other persons employed by us in the performance of our obligations; unless Gestalten has infringed upon material obligations or rights so that the attainment of the purpose of the contract is jeopardized or the Licencee has suffered health damage. Towards entrepreneurs we shall be liable for foreseeable damage and damage typical to the business only; liability towards entrepreneurs for gross negligence of our vicarious agents and other persons employed by us in the performance of our obligations shall be excluded.


Violations against this Licence by the Licencee shall automatically cause this Licence to be terminated. In such cases the relevant font and all products containing the font shall not be used, published, and/or distributed. All available copies of the font shall promptly be destroyed. Gestalten reserves the right to initiate civil and criminal proceedings for violations against the Licence. Please bear in mind that font-piracy is illegal and punishable!
