Basic guidelines for font licensing
When you purchase fonts -just like any other software- you purchase a license to use the fonts on various forms of digital equipment. We currently offer direct online purchase for desktop, web, mobile and e-publication licenses. The following covers our basic guidelines for font licensing.
Standard Desktop License
All Parachute fonts are licensed to use on up to five (5) workstations at a single location. Read the Desktop EULA for terms and conditions. If you wish to use the fonts at more than one location or with more than five workstations, you must acquire additional licensing.
If you need to use the fonts on more than five workstations you must purchase additional licensing. The cost is based on the number of users. When you proceed to the ordering page you will be asked to indicate the number of users and the program will calculate the cost for you. Find out just how affordable it is to stay legal with your font software. Basically, multi-user licensing is governed by the following formulas:
1 - 5 users:(standard license)
6 -10 users: add 50 percent
11-50 users: add 25% for each 5 users
51-100 users: add 15% for each 5 users
over 100 users: contact our sales department
Web fonts are used for styling HTML web pages and specifically for the viewing of text on a website using the @font-face declaration. Parachute fonts are offered in three major formats i.e. woff, eot and svg, which are compatible with all current browsers. We currently offer Self-hosting (the Typekit-hosting option will be available soon). The basic webfont license covers a monthly maximum of 500,000 pageviews. At checkout you will be asked to indicate the number of pageviews/month and the program will calculate the additional cost for you. Read the Web EULA for terms and conditions.
Mobile App License
You may embed an Opentype (otf) version of our fonts into one (1) mobile application on multiple application platforms such as iOS, Android or Windows in a secure manner. The basic license covers one (1) year, but you may extend it to three (3), five (5) and unlimited years at checkout. Read the Mobile App EULA for terms and conditions
You may embed an Opentype (otf) version of our fonts into one (1) electronic publication such as eBook, eMagazine, eNewspaper or interactive PDF, in a secure manner. The basic license covers one (1) year, but you may extend it to three (3), five (5) and unlimited years at checkout. Read the E-Publication EULA for terms and conditions
Our standard desktop license does not permit usage of our fonts on commercial merchandising unless you purchase additional license. This applies to goods such as clothing or any other form of merchandising, for which the font software becomes one of the main elements of the product.
