FAQ

A. Licenses / Authorizations

A1. Is it possible to purchase only one style of a particular typeface?
No. It is not possible to purchase the styles separately. All of the available options are presented on the website. 205TF typefaces generally come in the form of sets which contain a number of styles or as a complete typeface.

A2. Is it possible to purchase a Web, App or Audio-visual license separately?
No. Web licenses are only available to holders of a Desktop license. This is why the purchase of a Web license is automatically linked to a Desktop license. For holders of a Desktop license for particular typefaces it is possible to purchase a corresponding Web, App or Audio-visual license by connecting to the appropriate user account.

A3. How long is a license valid for?
A license is perpetual in nature for its owner, and thus valid for as long as the owner wishes to use it. It is important to remember that a license cannot be transferred or passed on to a third party.

A4. Are there any limits to the use of a 205TF typeface?
Apart from the number of workstations using the typeface (CPUs), a Desktop license has no limit to its use within the framework set by the general conditions. A Desktop license thus allows its holder to use the same typeface a number of times for different projects. The other licenses (Web, App, Audio-visual) all have limits which are defined and specified at the time of purchase (number of pages viewed per month, number of applications, etc.)

A5. Am I required to pay for the Web license each month?
No. A Web license is has no time limit and is payable only once on purchase.

A6. Is it possible to upgrade a license that has been previously purchased?
Yes. To do this connect to the appropriate user account (see C2)

A7. Is it possible to include a typeface in a Power Point file/ presentation?
No. All 205TF typefaces are protected and thus cannot be included in a Power Point file. This function can only be envisaged within the context of a customization. Contact us at: custom@205.tf so that we can examine your request in detail and provide an appropriate response.

A8. Can a license be transferred or passed to a third party?
No. The owner of the license (the purchaser or the person named when making the purchase) is the only person authorized to use the typeface that has been acquired. Under no circumstances, and without exception, can the license be transferred or passed on to a third party.

A9. Can I copy the files containing typefaces and then send them to a third party and/or a company?
No. Any person using a 205TF typeface must own a license adapted to his or her needs. And so he or she must acquire an appropriate license. License holders are in no way authorized to entrust the files to someone else, including professional partners (external collaborators, sub-contractors, etc.), under penalty of prosecution.
Owners are solely permitted to make a back-up copy of the files.
License holders are responsible for the protection and non-distribution of the files in their possession.

A10. Do I have the right to modify a typeface?
No. The design of a typeface cannot be modified.
Only minimal modifications for the purposes of creating a logotype may eventually be envisaged. Such modifications must be the subject of a written authorization ahead of any publication: custom@205.tf
Type design software can not be used to modify files which contain typefaces.

A11. Do I have the right to use a 205TF typeface to create a logotype?
Yes. However, this specific use is subject to a particular authorization with cost being calculated on a project by project basis. In order to precisely estimate the cost of this authorization, we require you to provide us with information that is as precise as possible (the client, if you are not subject to a confidentiality clause – activity, sector, products, etc. - scale: size of the firm, number of collaborators, etc. - deployment of the identity: national / international, - media/mediums being used, etc.)

A13. I am a designer and I am working on a project for a client? Which one of us should buy a license?
Any person using a 205TF typeface must own an appropriate license. Thus the Designer must purchase a license adapted to their needs (Print, Web, App, etc.) and the final client must also purchase the necessary licenses if they are in a position which requires them to use typefaces which are installed on their computer network, or on one or a number of their workstations/ devices.

A14. I am a student. Is it possible to obtain a free typeface for a school project?

Web license holders automatically receive typefaces in the following formats: .eot, .ttf, .svg, .woff and .woff2 which can be used for all current web browsers.

205TF typefaces contain style sets and the characters that they contain can be accessed by web browsers if a number of recommendations are followed during the development process. For more information: https://bit.ly/2NvBFj3
