Determining the licensee during checkout

During checkout, you’ll be asked who the fonts are for. Here is some help answering that question by type of license.

Webfonts
The owner of the websites and web content is the licensee. In the case of designers or developers purchasing fonts for use on client websites, use the client’s details here.

Mobile App fonts
The owner of the mobile app is the licensee. In the case of designers or developers purchasing fonts for use within a client’s app, use the client’s details here with an appropriate contact name

Desktop fonts
To decide, answer this question: On whose computer(s) will the fonts be installed? If your answer is:

  • Your computer, then use your name and details here. Whether you’re using the fonts for a personal project, as a freelance designer, etc. the license should be in your name. If you will be using the font but are purchasing on behalf of your company, use your organization’s details (see below).
  • Your organization, use your organization’s name and details. An organization can be a company, agency, firm, studio, non-profit, etc. Licenses are granted by use rather than per project so as long as the fonts will be used by your organization, then the license should be in the organization’s name. For example, a design agency that creates an identity for a client using a Process Type Foundry font should hold the license because they must install and use the fonts in order to create the client’s identity. If the client should take on production tasks themselves, therefore needing to install the fonts on their computers, they also need a license.
  • Your customer or client, then use their details. If you are acting as a purchasing agent, this gives them the full rights granted by our license.
