License Agreement

1. INTRODUCTION.This Agreement is a legal document which sets out your rights and obligations, and those of SteelDesign (“SteelDesign”, “we” or “us”), in relation to the software and fonts which you may agree to licence from us (collectively, “SteelDesign Products”). You must take the time to read and understand it before agreeing to licence any of the SteelDesign Products, or, if the fees which are specified for the relevant SteelDesign Product(s) (the “Fees”) have already been paid, before commencing to download or use the relevant SteelDesign Products. By signifying your agreement to this document, or by installing or using any SteelDesign Product, you accept that you are entering into a contract with us on the terms of this Agreement.

2. GRANT OF LICENCE. In consideration of the payment of the Fees, we licence you to use (a) the font software (the “Software”), and (b) our fonts (the “Fonts”) in accordance with this Agreement. The licence which we grant to you (a) is non-exclusive, (b) is personal, meaning that it is granted only to the person or entity which initially licences the SteelDesign Products from us, and may not be shared with or transferred to any other person or entity, (c) permits the Software and the Fonts to be used only on or through the number of devices, whether networked or stand-alone, specified by us (and agreed to by you) in the course of your agreeing to licence them, and (d) does not permit webfont embedding, making the Software or Fonts available in downloadable or editable form, or the use of the Software or Fonts for or in connection with the rendering or displaying of content on the web in searchable or selectable form; see below for more details.

Where you licence SteelDesign Products for use by an entity, you undertake that (a) you are entitled to licence them on behalf of the entity, (b) the entity will be bound to this Agreement in the same way as you, and (c) this Agreement will accordingly be enforceable both against you and the entity.

3. SOME DEFINITIONS.In this Agreement:

(a) “font” includes typeface, bitmap and any technology resulting in a representation thereof;

(b) “use” means (a) in relation to the Software, to be accessible in connection with the use of any of the Fonts, and (b) in relation to the Fonts, to be accessible for the inclusion or replication of any of the Fonts in any part of a work, in any medium;

(c) “networked” includes any form of connectivity, whether wired or wireless, and whether through a client/server arrangement or otherwise;

(d) “device” means any item owned by you (and not by any other person or entity) through which it is possible to give commands which are capable of being responded to by any part of the SteelDesign Products;

(e) “Maximum Usage” means the maximum number of uses which you are authorised for, either at the time you initially licence the SteelDesign Product(s), or as a result of an extension to the number of Maximum Users granted by us in accordance with this Agreement;

(f) “work” includes any form of visual representation, whether textual, graphical or otherwise; and

(g) “entity” includes any incorporated or unincorporated entity or person, whether a company, corporation, partnership, association, or other.

4. MAXIMUM USAGE. If you obtain a 1 Workstation Maximum Usage Licence, there must be no more than the following:

(a) One copy of the Software and Fonts available for use on separate devices (such as on the hard drives of a personal or laptop computer); or instead, where devices are networked,

(b) One device capable of making any use of the Software or the Fonts at any time, whether by means of a centrally-held copy or otherwise.

If you purchase a Site Licence with the fonts you may install the fonts on an unlimited number of workstations at a single geographic location. A single geographic location is in particular the site of your place of business. The geographic restriction does not apply to portable computers if they are owned by you.

Irrespective of how you licence SteelDesign Products from us (whether online, or through some other direct or indirect contact with us), a receipt will specify the licence you have purchased and an email containing a link to the licence will be sent. For the avoidance of doubt, Maximum Usage levels apply to each separate SteelDesign Product.

5. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.You acknowledge and agree that:

(a) we (or our licensors) own all right, title and interest in and to the Software, including all copyright subsisting in and in relation to it; and

(b) we own all right, title and interest in and to the Fonts, including all copyright subsisting in and in relation to them.

Separately and together, the SteelDesign Products are protected by copyright under United Kingdom legislation, as well as by international copyright treaties. All rights not expressly granted in this Agreement are reserved to us.

6. COPYING OF SteelDesign Products. No copying or distribution of any of the SteelDesign Products may be made, except as expressly provided in this Agreement; without prejudice to such obligation, you shall ensure that all copies and distributions of SteelDesign Products include the same copyright and other proprietary notices as appear on the original SteelDesign Products which we make available. All copies of the SteelDesign Products, including those contained on a CD or downloadable file we may send to you, must be kept under your exclusive control.

7. LIMITATIONS ON THE USE OF FONTS AND SOFTWARE. You may use a Font in a work which is accessible by electronic means (including, without limitation, through the Internet, in any networked form, or recorded on any form of storage medium, such as a CD-ROM) only if:

(a) the work is in a form which permits it only to be viewed and printed, and not to be copied, modified or adapted;

(b) the Font and Software cannot be downloaded; and

(c) the Font is not capable of being rendered in an editable form or as searchable text.

You may not make embedded use of any Font or Software on the internet, or modify or convert it into any format that permits embedding or font linking, nor may any Font or Software be used to create a derivative or alternate font format.

For example (but without limiting the above), (i) a Font may not be used, or made available for use (such as through a server) for the rendering of content on the web, (ii) A Font and/or Software may be embedded in a file (such as a .pdf file), but that file may be uploaded to the internet or made available for download only if the file has security activated so that it is non-editable, and (iii) the Software may be used to create an image file that is uploaded to the internet for use on a website, provided it satisfies the above requirements. Your rights under (ii) and (iii) above apply only to a Font subset: you must never embed or include the entire Font set in any file that is accessible to others.

If you wish to use the Fonts or Software to render and display web content as live searchable/selectable text (sometimes referred to as webfont embedding), or to do anything else that is not permitted under this Agreement, then please contact SteelDesign using the contact information referred to in Clause 24 below.

For the avoidance of doubt, and without prejudice to the above, you may include a Font in a hardcopy work in which it is fixed, so that it is incapable of being edited, modified or adapted, and is only capable of being copied by analogue photocopying means.

8. DECOMPILATION. You may not reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise attempt to discover the source code relating to the SteelDesign Products, provided, however, that if you are in a member state of the European Community or any other state which grants these rights, you may decompile the Software to the extent required for the purpose of obtaining sufficient information for the purpose of creating an interoperable software program (but only for such purpose and only to the extent that sufficient information is not provided by us to you upon written request).

9. NO COOLING OFF PERIOD.Where you licence SteelDesign Products from us through our web-site, and they are made available for download by you, there is no right to cancel this Agreement during the cooling-off period which is provided for certain purchases under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 from the time when we make the SteelDesign Products available for download by you. Similarly, where we do not make SteelDesign Products available for download by you, but send you the SteelDesign Products you have licenced only by CD , the right to cancel this Agreement is (in accordance with those Regulations) lost when the CD is removed from the box in which it is contained.

10. YOUR DETAILS.You undertake to register for the SteelDesign Products using accurate and current information about yourself – including your correct name, address and any other requested details. If you provide details of a credit, debit or charge card for the payment of Fees, you must ensure that (a) you are fully entitled to use that card, and (b) it has available funds sufficient to cover the charges which are deducted from it. Unless you advise us otherwise, we will use your contact information to contact with you by post and/or email with (a) support information concerning the SteelDesign Products, and (b) information about similar good and services which we may licence from time to time.

11. DATA PROTECTION.We will treat the personal data you provide to us in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, and otherwise in accordance with the law. We will not keep your personal data after the termination of this Agreement.

12. WARRANTY. We warrant that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with its documentation for the ninety (90) day period following delivery of the Software to you. To make a warranty claim, you must, within the ninety (90) day warranty period, return the Software to us together with proof of your purchase of the SteelDesign Products, and adequate proof that the Software has failed to satisfy the above warranty. In any event, our entire liability shall be to refund the Fees paid for the SteelDesign Products. We give no warranty or undertaking that the SteelDesign Products will be capable of being used in conjunction with any hardware or software other than that specified in our relevant documentation. You are responsible for ensuring that the application you intend to use with the SteelDesign Products supports the Microsoft/Adobe OpenType font format; you may need to check with the application’s manufacture on this point. No warranty is given concerning the performance of or results you may obtain by using the SteelDesign Products.

13. FEES.

(a) You acknowledge that we are entitled to alter the amount or the basis of the calculation of our Fees from time to time, provided that such amount or basis is clearly stated at the time when you agree to take the relevant SteelDesign Products.

(b) We may add new or ancillary services from time to time which require the payment of fees – either to us or a nominated third party – on terms which will be provided to you at the time.

14. DISCLAIMER AND EXCLUDED LOSS.Your use of the SteelDesign Products is entirely at your own risk. We will not be liable to you or any third party for any indirect or consequential loss or damage, or for any loss of data, profit, revenue or business, howsoever caused (whether arising out of any negligence or breach of this Agreement or otherwise). SteelDesign will also not be liable for any failure to perform of its obligations under this Agreement caused by matters beyond its reasonable control. We exclude all conditions, terms, representations (other than fraudulent or negligent representations) and warranties relating to the SteelDesign Products, whether imposed by statute or by operation of law or otherwise, that are not expressly stated in this Agreement, including without limitation, the implied warranties of satisfactory quality and fitness for a particular purpose unless they are incapable of being excluded by law. Any statutory rights you may have as a consumer remain unaffected.

15. MAXIMUM LIABILITY.Without limiting the preceding Clause, the aggregate liability of SteelDesign (whether arising in negligence or otherwise) will not under any circumstances exceed an amount equal to the Fees paid to us, regardless of the cause or form of action.

16. NON-EXCLUDED LIABILITIES.Nothing in this Agreement limits SteelDesign’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence, or any other liability which may not by law be excluded. Any statutory rights you may have as a consumer remain unaffected.

17. AUDIT.You acknowledge and agree, both for yourself and any entity which uses SteelDesign Products, that we shall be entitled, upon such notice to you as we reasonably deem appropriate, to enter any premises where SteelDesign Products are apparently used, in order to determine your and/or such entity’s compliance with this Agreement and our rights.

18. TERMINATION. We shall be entitled to terminate the licence granted to you under Clause 2 above by notice sent to the contact email address or postal address you provided upon registering for the SteelDesign Products, in the event:

(a) of any serious breach of this Agreement by you or any entity which uses SteelDesign Products you licence from us; or

(b) that you or any entity which uses SteelDesign Products ceases to carry on its business or has a liquidator, receiver or administrative receiver appointed to it or over any part of its undertaking or assets, or passes a resolution for its winding up (or its winding up is ordered by a court), or enter into any voluntary arrangement with creditors, or similar in any other jurisdiction.

If this Agreement is terminated, you (and such entity) must destroy the original and any and all copies of the SteelDesign Products, and (where so requested by us) provide us with such evidence as we may require to show conformity with this requirement.

19. ASSIGNMENT.We reserve the right to assign this Agreement, and to assign or subcontract any or all of our rights and obligations under this Agreement. You may not without the written consent of SteelDesign assign or dispose of this Agreement, or the licence granted under this Agreement.

20. ENTIRE AGREEMENT.This Agreement is intended to contain your entire agreement with us relating to the SteelDesign Products; we believe it to be fair and reasonable. It replaces all earlier agreements and understandings with you relating to the SteelDesign Products, except for any fraud or fraudulent representation by either of us. A person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to rely upon or enforce any term of this Agreement.

21. SEVERABILITY.In the event that any term of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable by judicial decree or decision, the remainder of this Agreement shall remain valid and enforceable.

22. LAW. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Scotland.

You can access it at If you licence SteelDesign Products online, please make a durable copy of this Agreement by printing and/or saving a downloaded copy on your own computer.
