and accept them,” or similar language or when you accept the Agreement by

You are responsible for ensuring that the Licensed Web Fonts can only be

Licensed Web Font’s original name and in accordance with accepted
trademark practice, including identification of the trademark owner’s name.

Font’s original name(s) and cite the source of the Licensed Web Font. You
will only use the Licensed Web Font’s original name(s) to identify a Licensed
Web Font which effects a faithful reproduction of the underlying font and
which is of a quality sufficient to meet industry typographic quality
standards. The use of any trademark authorized herein does not give you
any rights of ownership in that trademark and all use of any trademark shall
inure to the sole benefit of Monotype.

provision, you may reverse engineer or decompile the Licensed Web Fonts

the exclusions of limitations of incidental, consequential or special damages,

jurisdictions do not allow the exclusions of implied warranties or limitations
on how long an implied warranty may last, so the above limitations may not
apply to you. To the greatest extent permitted by law, any implied
warranties not effectively excluded by this Agreement are limited to twentyone
(21) days. Some jurisdictions do not permit a limitation of implied
warranties where the product results in physical injury or death so such
limitations may not apply to you. In those jurisdictions, you agree that
Monotype’s liability for such physical injury or death shall not exceed One
Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) United States dollars, provided that
such jurisdictions permit a limitation of such liability. This warranty gives you

Agreement, Monotype shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement upon
notice by regular mail, paid carrier, telefax or email/textform. The
termination of the Agreement shall not preclude Monotype from suing you for
damages for any breach of the Agreement. The Agreement may only be
modified in writing signed by an authorized officer of Monotype.
8. Other Terms and Conditions. In the event that any provision of this
Agreement is unenforceable or invalid, such unenforceability or invalidity
