Web License

The Web license is calculated based on the license owner’s company size – in other words the number of employees – and not on the average web traffic. As not everyone is working full-time you can cumulate the percentages to 100% jobs and go with an approximate number for the metrics.

  • A Web license grants the right to use purchased fonts on one (1) web domain and all its corresponding sub-domains with the @font-face CSS method.
  • When purchasing a Web license, the amount of employees is to be set at checkout. If the amount significantly changes over time, the difference has to be purchased additionally, according to the self-check term under {3.2 Updates}.
  • Web fonts are provided in Woff and Woff2 format and may not be converted into other formats and/or used anywhere else than the specified domain. Also hosting the fonts on third-party services is strictly prohibited.
    Subsetting the character set or features in the font to reduce file size is allowed.

Necessary information at check-out:
¹ Domain name: the domain name the fonts are licensed to.

2.0 Definitions

2.1 Licensee

  • The license owner is the end user creating or using the output generated or designed with purchased font files.
  • The customer is the user purchasing font files on behalf of itself or a third party. In some cases the customer and license owner are the same entity.

2.2 Supplier
MzType is the type foundry of Marc Zenhäusern in Bern, Switzerland.

2.3 Typefaces and fonts
A typeface is the underlying visual design and consists of a particular set of glyphs (an alphabet and its corresponding accessories such as numerals, symbols and punctuation) that share a common design.
A font is an implementation of a specific style of the typeface, for a specific use case and medium.

2.4 Copyright and right of use
A digital font is a small software and licensed as such. Purchasing a font license grants the rights to use the font according to this EULA and its terms and conditions.
A licensee never owns the purchased font, but the right to use it alone. MzType / Marc Zenhäusern remains the only copyright owner. Any and all rights not expressly granted in this agreement including intellectual property rights are reserved to Marc Zenhäusern and MzType.

3.0 General Terms

Upon full payment MzType permits the licensee the non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable right to use the purchased font files according to its accompanying license, subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA.
Important: everything under {3.0 General Terms} applies to all individual licenses.

3.1 Refunds
All sales are final: once fonts are purchased from mztype.ch they are non-returnable and non-refundable.
If the font files are technically defective in any way, MzType will review – and if necessary – replace the files within 14 (fourteen) days after the purchase.

3.2 Updates
All licenses are based on specific metrics and by accepting this EULA you agree to keep your licenses up to date by comparing them at least once a year. If the results have significantly changed over time, the difference has to be purchased additionally. In case of mistrust MzType is allowed to contact the license owner and request current data.

3.3 Limitations
You are not authorised to sublicense, sell, lend, or lease the font software and may not convert, modify, or rename the original font files under any circumstances.
This includes:

  • open the original font files in an editing software in order to reveal its drawing, structure or code.
  • use the original font files to create a derivative or modified version of it, including creating characters for alphabets and languages not covered by the typeface in its current form, or designing a custom version of the typeface. Subsetting the character set or features in the font to reduce file size is allowed.

Any promotion of violence and/or discrimination with the use of MzType Typefaces is prohibited and the use in any form of political campaign or religious context needs to be authorised by MzType beforehand.

3.4 Customisation
A customised version of a typeface, additional glyphs or modifications to single glyphs can be created upon request.

3.5 Warranty
Font software is always used with third party devices/software and underlying ever-changing circumstances. Font files may therefore behave differently sometimes or not display 100% accurately. Although testing thoroughly, MzType does not and cannot warrant any performance or results the licensee may experience through use of the font software.

If you’re happy with a purchased typeface, please feel free to credit MzType in the imprint or colophon of your project.
