End User License Agreement (EULA) for CastleType Fonts
In plain English:
Do not resell or give away CastleType fonts; do not embed them on your website, in ebooks, etc. (that requires a separate license*); do not modify them. Up to five people can use one licensed font on any combination of platforms (Macintosh, Windows, Unix, etc.). That's it in a nutshell. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. See below for the legaleze.

End User License Agreement
By downloading software from CastleType, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. This Agreement, in conjunction with the receipt that accompanies each purchase from CastleType.com ("CastleType"), constitutes the complete agreement between you and CastleType.
1. Allowed uses
You may use the licensed fonts to create images on any surface, including, but not limited to: computer screens, paper, web pages, photographs, movie credits, broadcasting, printed material, T-shirts, and other surfaces where the image is a fixed size.
You may use the licensed fonts to create EPS files or other scalable drawings provided that such files are only used by the household or company licensing the font.
2. Number of users
The maximum number of simultaneous users is five (5). All users must belong to the same company or household purchasing the font. Font licensing can be upgraded to include more users. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
3. Third parties
You may provide the font to a graphic designer, printer or other service bureau that is working on your behalf only if they agree to use the font exclusively for your work, agree to the terms of this license, and retain no copies of the font on completion of the work.
You may not provide the font to, or make it accessible to, any other third parties.
You may embed the licensed fonts into any document you send to third parties. Such documents may be viewed and printed (but not edited) by the recipients. You may not embed fonts on your website.
You may not under any circumstances embed the licensed fonts into software or hardware products in which the fonts will be used by the purchasers of such products. Such use requires a different license which can be obtained from CastleType. Please contact email@example.com for further information.
You may import characters from the font as graphical objects into a drawing program and modify such graphical objects.
You may not modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or create derivative works based on the licensed font itself without the CastleType's prior written consent.
The font and the accompanying materials are copyrighted and contain proprietary information and trade secrets belonging to CastleType. Unauthorized copying of the licensed fonts even if modified, merged, or included with other software, or of the written materials, is expressly forbidden. You may be held legally responsible for any infringement of CastleType's intellectual property rights that is caused or encouraged by your failure to abide by the terms of this Agreement.
This Agreement is effective until terminated. This Agreement will terminate automatically without notice from CastleType if you fail to comply with any provision contained herein. Upon termination, you must destroy the written materials, the licensed fonts, and all copies of them, in part and in whole, including modified copies, if any.
