- Licensee must enable all applicable Security Features provided by the file format of the Embedded Software File, and must use best efforts to adopt new, superior Security Features as they become generally available; failure by Licensee to fully enable the Security Features of an Embedded Software File is a material breach of this Agreement and will result in its immediate termination without notice; and
- Licensee must store the Licensed Software within the Embedded Software File such that all path names and file types are non-obvious and do not reference (a) any trademarks of Licensor, (b) any typographic term of art, or (c) any file name extension associated with fonts and typography, such as .ttf or .otf.
- Rights Reserved. This Agreement does not grant to Licensee any right, title or interest in or to the H&FJ Properties, other than the grant of rights expressly provided in this Agreement. All rights not granted by this license are expressly reserved.
Restrictions. Licensee may not, and must ensure that no Person is able to:

- Licensee shall be fully responsible for all use of the Licensed Software by any Person who gains access to it pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, or as the result of any act or omission of Licensee in violation of this Agreement. Also, Licensee will use its best efforts to adopt new Security Features as they become generally available from time to time.
- Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Licensor grants to Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license, without the right of sublicense to do the following:
Payment and Taxes. In consideration for the rights granted to Licensee hereunder, Licensee shall pay to Licensor a license fee specified on the Order Summary, payable on the date the Licensee enters into this Agreement by clicking below.
- Fees for Licensed Software are posted on our website, and may be changed from time to time. Changes will not be applied retroactively to existing licensees.
- A valid credit card number is required in order to enter into this Agreement. You hereby represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the credit card provided to us in association with this Agreement. If Licensor cannot process your credit card for any reason, delivery of Licensed Software may be delayed until payment can be processed.
- All amounts paid pursuant to this Agreement are non-returnable and nonrefundable. No exceptions will be made.
- All fees will not include, and Licensee is responsible for paying any applicable sales, use, gross receipts, excise, import, export, value added or similar taxes. Each party will bear its own taxes as levied under applicable law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you live or operate in New York State, H&FJ shall collect New York State sales tax, which will appear as a separate line item on your Order Summary.
- Licensee acknowledges that Licensor is the exclusive owner of all worldwide right, title and interest in and to the H&FJ Property, including all copies of the Licensed Software, regardless of the format in which they are expressed or the media on which they are recorded. Licensee acknowledges that Licensor shall be the exclusive owner of all worldwide right, title and interest in and to any and all modifications, customization, variations, or adaptations of the H&FJ Property (individually and collectively, the “Modifications”), based on or substantially similar to, the H&FJ Property, inclusive of all Derivative Works, regardless of who made such Modifications or Derivative Works. If Licensee makes or causes to be made any such Modifications, Licensee shall immediately provide Licensor with all copies of such Modifications made by or for Licensee, and Licensor may terminate this Agreement pursuant to Paragraph 10.
- Licensee agrees not to challenge Licensor’s rights in or to the H&FJ Property, or the validity of any intellectual property or other right of Licensor therein, or to infringe Licensor’s rights therein. All goodwill that may become attached to the Trademarks as a result of Licensee’s use of the Typefaces or the Licensed Software shall inure to the exclusive benefit of Licensor. Licensee shall refrain from using the Trademarks as part of any corporate, trade or firm name or style of Licensee. Licensee shall not create a combination mark consisting of any of the Trademarks with the proprietary marks of any other Person. Licensee shall not take any action that could reasonably be expected to impair the registrability, validity or enforceability of any of the Trademarks, nor shall Licensee attempt to register, use or aid any third party in attempting to register or use, in any jurisdiction, any trademark or service mark which may, in the reasonable opinion of Licensor, infringe or otherwise violate Licensor’s rights to the Trademarks.
- Updates and Upgrades. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to obligate Licensor to provide upgrades or updates of the Licensed Software to Licensee under any circumstances. To the extent upgrades or updates are provided, they shall be provided to Licensee on a license exchange basis, and Licensee agrees that by using an upgrade or update Licensee voluntarily terminates Licensee’s right to use any previous version of the Licensed Software. Upgrades and updates may be licensed with additional or different terms and fees.
Transfer of Rights Prohibited.
- Licensee may not sell, lease, sublicense, or otherwise assign or transfer (each, a “Transfer”) any rights, duties or obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any Person, including by merger or operation of law.
- If Licensee is a corporate parent, subdivision, wholly-owned subsidiary, joint venture, unincorporated division, or is otherwise affiliated with another Person (including, without limitation (i) a single publication that is owned or operated by a parent company that owns or operates other publications or (ii) an agency, studio, graphics production company, or similar entity owned or operated by a parent company that owns or operates such entities), Licensee may not permit such Person, or any Person owned, operated, or otherwise affiliated with such Person, to use the Licensed Software in any manner.
- Any Transfer in violation of this Agreement will be null and void.
No Warranty. The licensed software is provided “as is.” To the extent permitted by applicable law, licensor disclaims all warranties, representations and guarantees, express or implied, as to merchantability, fitness for any particular purpose, or otherwise with respect to the licensed software. In addition, there is no warranty of non-infringement, title or quiet enjoyment.
- Licensee understands and agrees that Licensee downloads and/or uses the licensed software at Licensee’s discretion and risk and that Licensee will be solely responsible for any damages to any computer or loss of data that results from the download or use of the Licensed Software.
- Some states or other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusions may not apply to licensee. Licensee may also have other rights that vary from state to state and jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
- You are not granted any right to use the Licensed Software in any application controlling aircraft or other modes of human mass transportation, nuclear or chemical facilities, life support systems, implantable medical equipment, motor vehicles, weaponry systems, or any similar scenario (collectively, “High Risk Use”). H&FJ and its suppliers disclaim any express or implied warranty of fitness for High Risk Use.
- Disclaimer of Liability. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Licensor disclaims all liability for any loss, cost or damage, including without limitation indirect, special, consequential, or incidental damages, including any lost profits or lost savings, loss of goodwill, business interruption, work stoppage, loss of data, or computer failure, damage or malfunction, or for any claim by any party, even if licensor has been apprised of the possibility of such damages, and regardless of the theory (including contract, tort, strict liability, negligence or otherwise) upon which such claim is based. In no event shall Licensor’s total liability to Licensee for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) exceed the amount paid by Licensee under this agreement. The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above-stated remedy fails of its essential purpose. Licensor and Licensee acknowledge and agree that these limitations are an essential element of this agreement and that the price for the Licensed Software is determined in part by taking into account the existence of these limitations.
- During the term of this Agreement, Licensor may require Licensee to provide the addresses of all locations where the Licensed Software is installed.
- During the term of this Agreement and for one (1) year thereafter, Licensor or its designated agent may inspect the Licensed Software and Licensee’s facilities and records to verify Licensee’s compliance with this Agreement. Any such inspection will take place only during Licensee’s normal business hours and upon no less than ten (10) days prior written notice from Licensor. Licensor will give Licensee written notice of any non-compliance, including the number of underreported units of the Licensed Software, and Licensee will have fifteen (15) days from the date of this notice to make payment to Licensor for the applicable units of the Licensed Software. If the shortfall in the amount payable by Licensee exceeds five percent (5%) of the total amount contemplated by this Agreement, Licensee will also pay Licensor for the cost of such inspection. Upon request by Licensor, Licensee will provide to Licensor via e-mail copies of any and all data files related to Licensee’s use of the Licensed Software, including all copies of the Licensed Software or provide Licensor with remote access to such data files on Licensee’s computer system.

Licensor may terminate this Agreement or suspend Licensee’s rights to use the Licensed Software upon written notice to Licensee if:

- as a result of an acquisition, merger, reorganization or strategic business relationship, Licensee becomes a competitor of Licensor (by developing, licensing, or distributing font- or typeface-related software or services) or, in Licensor’s reasonable opinion, is likely to become such a competitor of Licensor within one hundred eighty (180) days.

Upon any such termination, Licensee shall immediately destroy the original and all copies of the Licensed Software in its possession and Licensee shall have no further right to use the Licensed Software pursuant to this Agreement.

Licensee hereby irrevocably submits to personal jurisdiction in the State and to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any New York state or federal court sitting in the City of New York over any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the relationships created by or under this Agreement (“Action”). Jurisdiction and venue of any Action shall, at the election of Licensor, be in (and if any Action is originally brought in another venue, the Action shall at the election of Licensor be transferred to) a state or federal court of appropriate jurisdiction located in the State.
