End User License Agreement 2.0Trial fonts
Licensing & EULA
Note: this is the previous version of our license system and doesn’t apply since the 14/06/2023. See the newer version here.
We offer one license in three different sizes depending on the relative metrics of the final Licensee (the end-client). All licenses include desktop, web, app, ebook and logo use with the particular limitations outlined per size. Should the end-client exceed ANY of the indicated metrics in one license type they are required to select the license size above. Social media followers are counted as the total number across all of the end-client’s channels (e.g Twitter, Facebook, Instagram…). If you later find that your needs exceed the purchased license you’re required to upgrade your license.
All purchases of <S>, <M> or <L> Family licenses grant you free access to future updates such as new scripts and styles, the licensed font might receive.
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.
Students are eligible to an 80% discount on a lifetime <S> license of any font, for school and professional projects. Get in touch at [email protected].

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’).
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. 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]
Licenses are attributed per user, eg. individual persons working within the same organization. Each user may install the Font Software on a maximum of 2 (two) computers (e.g. one workstation and one laptop). As long as they are working in the same organization, all users don’t need to work at a unique location. The Licensee may make a single back-up copy of the Font Software for archival purposes only. The Licensee must keep any such back-up copy secure and retain exclusive custody and control over such back-up copy.
Each license is related to a limited number of users working for the same company.
The Font Software is licensed for use within one unique web domain per license (and any of its sub-domains) for the maximum number of page views per month specified on the Licensee’s order. The Licensee may order a license for use on a third party website as long as they provide the domain name of such website and respect the license metrics specified in their order. If the monthly traffic of this website exceeds the maximum number of page views per month for three consecutive months, the licensee must obtain a license upgrade from NaN covering all page views for an additional fee. The Licensee agrees to provide written copies of the average page view reporting statistics upon request.
You can use the fonts on one website per license. The number of monthly page views must match your license.
You can use the fonts for logos. The company using the logo should get their own license.
APP AND GAME USE
The Font Software is licensed for use within one unique Application or Video Game (both named as “the App” in the following lines) per license and for the maximum number of total downloads specified on the Licensee’s order. The Licensee may use the same license when porting the App to other platforms (eg. Android, iOS). The Licensee is allowed to distribute the Font Software as an embedded file within the Application and distribute copies of the App with the embedded Font Software. If the total amount of downloads of the Licensee’s app or game exceeds the maximum number specified in their order they must obtain a license upgrade covering all downloads for an additional fee. The Licensee agree to provide written copies of their download report statistics upon request.
You can use the fonts on one app or video game per license. You must check if the number of total downloads matches your license.
The embedding technology shall exclude the App end-user direct access to the embedded Font Software in order to prevent it from being downloaded for any other use than within the App. When distributed within the App, the embedded Font Software shall by all means be protected against installation in the App end-user’s operating system. The Font Software shall never be embedded in the App unprotected against, or enabling exportation of content such as editable PDFs, documents, static images, scalable images, ads or other similar files, or in an application heavily dependent on font files needed for as their primary use.
