Upon receipt of the payment in full, Noir Blanc Rouge will grant you a non-exclusive terminable user license to the Font Software that accompanies this Agreement. The Noir Blanc Rouge Font Software licenses are granted for a specifically determined number of workstations. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Font Software” is defined as the typeface that, jointly with the Font, generates the typographic creation and, where applicable, any ornaments or other signs. “User License” is defined as the right to use, for your specific personal or internal business purposes, and, except as may otherwise be permitted herein, shall not mean or include any commercial distribution or use of the Font Software, the typeface or the graphics or any other part of the same in any Commercial Product. If you are unsure whether your use is permitted, contact Noir Blanc Rouge. Your failure to contact to seek permission or the lack of a specific prohibition in this Agreement shall not be interpreted as a waiver or permissible use in any manner whatsoever. You hereby agree that this license shall further comprise all bitmap representations of the typeface, ornaments and graphics created by the Font Software or derived from it. This license grants the Licensee, subject to their full respect of this EULA, a non-exclusive authorization to use the Typeface. Noir Blanc Rouge remains the sole owner of the Typeface. Once it is purchased, the given Typeface may be downloaded and used for both personal and commercial use, as long as the usage is not racist or pornographic. As long as the Licensee does not transfer their rights to the Typeface granted in this EULA, they may use the Typeface on any amount of supports (printed, digital, broadcasting, etc.) for an unlimited period of time.

You hereby agree that the design represented by the Typeface and the Font Software are the exclusive property of Noir Blanc Rouge and that any unauthorized use of the Typeface or the Font Software is an infringement of the rights of Noir Blanc Rouge and causes significant monetary harm.

The Font Software and the Typeface contained therein, as well as any deposited trademarks associated with the same are the exclusive property of Noir Blanc Rouge and its Typeface designers and are protected by French copyright laws and by the French Intellectual Property Code, regardless of the country in which you are operating, by the copyright laws and intellectual property code of other countries and by other international treaties. Any copy that you are expressly authorized to make must include the same copyright, registered trademark or other notices appearing on or in the Font Software.
You expressly agree not to resell, lease, sublicense, give, loan or distribute the Font Software.
Service provider & customer
If you are the service provider of a customer and you acquire a license for your own use, the said license does not cover any use to be made by your customer. Your customer must, where applicable, acquire a license. The members of the acquiring legal entity, household members, employees and agents must be informed by you of the terms and conditions of this Agreement and must agree to be bound by the said terms and conditions prior to any use of the Font Software.
Alter, copy or reformatting
Except as may otherwise be permitted herein, you may not, in any manner whatsoever, alter or copy the Font Software or the Typeface embodied therein. Reformatting the Font Software into any other format, for use in other operating systems is expressly prohibited. Noir Blanc Rouge alone may supply the Font Software in alternate or additional formats. To that end, please contact Noir Blanc Rouge for a quotation. Amending or altering the embedding bit characteristics of the Font Software is expressly prohibited. You agree not to create or support and/or cause the creation or alteration of the Font Software or the Typeface embedded in it. This includes inter alia any creation of any additional styles, the creation, deletion or alteration of existing glyphs, the alteration of the metrics, spacing or kerning of lines, the modification, adaptation, translation, reverse engineering, de-compilation, disassembly, alteration of, or attempted access to the Font Software’s source code without Noir Blanc Rouge’s written consent. If the said consent is granted to you, any alteration shall become and shall remain Noir Blanc Rouge’s exclusive property, and you will not be entitled to sell, loan or forward to any third party any such alterations or add-ons to the Font Software. Certain jurisdictions may provide for additional rights, and, if applicable, you may reverse engineer or decompile the Font Software only to the extent that the extracted information is not sufficient to allow for the creation of an interoperable software program (but only for such purposes and only to the extent that the necessary information is not provided by Noir Blanc Rouge upon written request). You may not knowingly communicate the Font Software to any party likely to modify, publish, alter or enrich the Font Software or extract the Font Software from any document.
You may make one (1) back-up copy of the Font Software for archival purposes only, and you agree to retain exclusive custody and control over such copy. Upon termination of the License Agreement, you must destroy the original and any and all copies of the Font Software. Any unauthorized sharing, lending, renting, sale or any unauthorized use or misuse of the back-up copy is a material breach of this Agreement and will result in the immediate termination of this License.
You may install and use the Font Software on one (1) file server for use on a single local area network (LAN), only when the use of such Font Software is expressly limited to the total number of users covered by this Agreement, i.e. the total number of users entitled to use the Font Software and not the total number of users who might have access to the Font Software at any one time.
Embed the Font Software
The Font Software may not be used to create any electronic document in which the Font Software or any part thereof is embedded in a format permitting the extraction, editing, alteration, enrichment or modification of such document by the recipient of such document, in any manner whatsoever. Such prohibition extends to the extraction of vectorized outlines. The use of the Font Software is authorized for static text only, and not for dynamic text. Any use in relation to dynamic text publishable by a third party must be covered by a license extension. “Embedded electronic systems” include the use of the Font Software for any display on the screen or on a system embedded outside a single location. For instance, and without any limitation, such embedded systems include interactive terminals, portable game consoles, embroidering or sewing machines, and betting games, regardless of the fact that the display or creation of a copy of the Typeface contained in the Font Software results from the use of the said software or any picture of the typeface in the tiff or gif format or any other format.
If no other option exists, you may forward a digitized copy of the Font Software used in a particular electronic document to any third-party service provider such as any flasher or printer for use by the same and preparation of the document, provided that the service provider destroys any copy of the Font Software after supplying the relevant services. However, you recognize that the transmission of a PDF document with the “Printing and Viewing only” setting is the first and best method in order to forward such documents to any flasher or printer.
