Web Embedding License

If you intend to use Kombinat-Typefounders fonts on the web this is the right license for you.

Self hosting
After you purchase a license and download the web font you will be free to install it on as many domains as you please. There is no limit to the traffic your website experiences and no pay as you go scheme.

Limitations
As long as the domain the font is hosted on, as well as the domain the font is embedded on are registered in your name there is no limit to the use you will get out of it. When one of these two domains changes hands, the new owner will be required to purchase her own license directly from us or from one of our distributors. Our fonts can legally not be opened, altered or converted to different formats.

Any questions? Please don't hesitate to enquire by email.
