Prior to purchase or font utilization, it is essential to review the Akuru Type End User License Agreement for the legal framework. Our licenses fall under three primary categories and reflect the terms and conditions of the use of this e-commerce platform.

Desktop Licensing

The "Desktop License" allows Font Software installation on desktops, laptops, or workstations. It covers the utilization of Font Software for creating printed publications for commercial distribution like newspapers, magazines, etc. Additionally, it permits the creation of static graphics for screens, including those for social media, and supports broad corporate use.

Web-font License

To utilize our fonts on a website, intranet, or web-based app, you need a "Web-font License." Explore two options for licensing web-fonts: the self-hosted or hosted solution.

Web-font Self-hosting

Opting for a Web-font Self-hosting License involves hosting fonts on the Licensee's web servers. The Font Software should be securely stored and served from the same devices and location as other software and assets associated with the licensed domain names. Licensees must take precautions to prevent unauthorized downloads, and the use of third-party font hosting services is strictly prohibited.
