Please read this entire Agreement before agreeing to be bound. The Agreement contains capitalized terms that are defined in Section 12 of the Agreement.

You hereby agree to the following:

1. Binding Agreement. You are bound by the Agreement and you acknowledge that all use of the Font Software for Electronic Publications supplied to you by Monotype is governed by the Agreement.
2. License Grant. You are hereby granted a non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable license (subject to all of the terms and conditions of the Agreement) to (a) embed the Font Software (i) into an Electronic Publication, including an Electronic Publication that is a Commercial Product, (ii) in a secure manner which does not allow an End User to access to the Font Software outside of an Electronic Publication, and (b) distribute worldwide (subject to the export restrictions set forth in section 9 of the Terms and Conditions) such Electronic Publication to End Users. Monotype reserves all rights not expressly granted to you in this Agreement.
3. Restrictions on Use.
  The maximum number of separate and distinct Electronic Publications into which the Font Software may be embedded may not exceed the number of Electronic Publications you indicated in your account at when licensing the Font Software.
  For avoidance of doubt, each Issue of an Electronic Publication counts as a separate Electronic Publication, however format variations of each Issue of an Electronic Publication shall not count as a separate Issue.
  The Font Software must be embedded within a file format that protects the Font Software by means of encryption or obfuscation. Formats that meet these criteria include, but are not limited to, PDF, EPUB 2.01, EPUB 3, and KF8. The Electronic Publication must be a non-executable file which is displayed by e-reader software or on e-reader devices. Font Software may not be installed in the operating system on which the Electronic Publication is displayed.

4. Alterations to the Font Software. You may not alter the Font Software for the purpose of adding any functionality that such Font Software did not have when delivered to you by Monotype.
