End User License AgreementTrial fonts
Licensing & EULA
Our commercial license is based on a rock-solid worry-free model. All media are covered and no hidden costs or upgrades can ever appear. The only metric we use is the size of the licensee’s company (the end-client). Users can then choose between our Basic Coverage (Print + Web + Social Medial) or our Basic + Extended Coverage options. Our Extended Coverage includes anything one might dream of.
All licenses grant your free access to any update our fonts might receive. This includes newly added scripts such as Cyrillic, Arabic etc, and newly added styles if you ordered a complete family.
Our pricing follow our Fairer Fonts Model, allowing our fonts to be priced accordingly to our customers’ country purchasing power. This allows a more equal access to quality fonts all across the globe.
If your requirements exceed our largest size license or you’re interested in customisations please contact us directly at [email protected]. This includes design customisation, language extensions, name changes (eg YourCo Sans) and broader corporate licensing needs.

End User License Agreement
This End User License Agreement (EULA) is a legal agreement made between NaN.xyz / Luke Prowse of Weichselplatz 3, Fabriken, Berlin, 12045, Germany (from now on referred as ‘NaN’), and the Licensee (from now on referred as ‘the Licensee’).
At NaN, the licensee is the Brand Company, the end-user who’s using the Font for the communication of their brand. In this license, they will be called the “Licensee”. Any external designer or agency producing the design work for the Company will be called the “Designer”.
GRANT OF LICENSE
Upon payment in full of the non-refundable license fee, NaN grants the Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to use the Font Software, subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Anyone using the Font agrees de facto to the terms of this contract. The Licensee is granted only the rights expressly stated in this Agreement, and use of the Font Software in any other manner is strictly prohibited.
Follow the rules below and everything’s hunky dory. Unclear, email us: [email protected]
At the time of purchase, the person placing the order (it can be the Designer) is asked to provide the name of the Company the font will be used by and for (e.g. the Licensee). By doing so, they testify the information filled in the license is correct and that the Licensee agrees to the License terms.
The Company Size means how many people work for the Licensee’s company (employees and sub-contractors included). Any freelancer or sub-contractor working more than half of their time for the Licensee for a duration of minimum 3 months should be counted in their employee number.
If the Licensee’s employee number reaches above 20% more than the upper limit of the license tiers they chose at the time of purchase, they’ll need to update their license to the tiers directly above. Please contact us at [email protected] for such update. If the Licensee doesn’t comply to this update, NaN’s will terminate their license.
Each license is related to the number of people working within and for the company, sub-contractors included.
COMPANY COUNTRY OF ACTIVITY
Our Fair Font Pricing model takes into account the Licensee’s country of residence to adjust the price in a fairer way. You testify that the address and country filled in this order are the ones of the registered head office of the Licensee.
No additional fees will ever be charged in the event of the Licensee registered head office moving countries.
In the event of NaN discovering a misleading or wrong information regarding the Licensee’s address, NaN keeps to right to either charging the difference of price with the Licensee actual country of residence OR terminating the Licensee’s license without further notice.
External designers and studios are allowed to use the fonts for the Licensee as long as they are counted in the Licensee’s employee number.
This license covers any Subcontractor (Designer or Studio) hired by the Licensee to execute some design work for them. As such, the Licensee should include the number of said Subcontractors in the total of their employees to choose their license tiers at the moment of purchase.
External designers and studios are allowed to use the fonts for the Licensee as long as they are counted in the Licensee’s employee number.
