  1. About these Terms
    1. What these Terms cover. These Terms, along with the Usage Specification and the EULA for the Product, are the terms and conditions upon which we agree to sell you a Product Licence.
    2. Why you should read them. Please read these Terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These Terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the Product to you, the terms upon which you will enter into a Contract with us, how that Contract can be changed or ended, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.

    3. These Terms are amended from time to time. We amend these Terms from time to time. Please check these Terms frequently to ensure you understand the Terms that apply at the time that you purchase a Product Licence. These Terms were most recently updated on 28th June 2021.
    4. We recommend that you print a copy of these Terms for future reference.
    5. There are different rights under these Terms for businesses and consumers. In some areas you will have different rights under these Terms depending on whether you are using our services as a Business (as defined in clause 3.9) or as a consumer. You are a consumer if:
  • You are an individual.
  • You are buying a Product Licence wholly or mainly for your personal use (not for use in connection with your trade, Business, craft or profession), for example if you are using the Product as part of your hobby, and the Product is not being used in a business capacity or to generate a profit.
  1. Our Contract with you
    1. The Contract is made up of the following:
      1. These Terms;
      2. The Usage Specification; and
      3. The EULA for the Product;

(together, the “Contract Terms”).

    1. If there is any conflict or ambiguity between the terms of the documents listed in clause 3.1 a term contained in a document higher in the list shall have priority over one contained in a document lower in the list.
    2. If you purchase more than once Product Licence from our website, a separate Contract shall apply to each Product Licence purchased.
    3. Read the product details and the EULA for each Product carefully, as they contain important terms and information. When you click on a Product to learn more about a particular Product, you will be taken to a product page, which contains a hyperlink to the relevant EULA. The EULA for each Foundry, and for each Product, may be different. If you would like to purchase a Product Licence, it is your responsibility to carefully read the details about the Product on the product page, and its EULA, and to decide whether or not to proceed. Once you purchase the Product Licence you will enter into a legally binding contract for the Product on an “as is” basis under the Contract Terms.
    4. Completing the Usage Specification. You will be able to select the weight or style of the Product, where and how it will be used, and the type of licence (annual or perpetual) at the point of placing your order, and this will make up the detail contained within the Usage Specification. It is your responsibility to ensure that the Usage Specification is complete and accurately reflects the Product and usage specifications you require. Once you purchase the Product Licence you will enter into a legally binding contract with us under the Contract Terms which incorporate the Usage Specification.
    5. Placing your order. When you place an order for a Product Licence via our website and click on “PAY NOW”, you are making an offer to purchase the Product Licence on the Contract Terms. Once you click “PAY NOW” you will be offering to enter into a contract with us for the chosen Product on an “as is” basis, and under the terms of the Contract (which incorporates the EULA and the Usage Specification).
    6. How we will accept your order. Acceptance of your order will take place when we send you a link to download the Product (“Commencement of Contract”) at which point a legally binding contract will come into existence between you and us on the Contract Terms.
    7. Once you download the Product, you waive your right to change your mind. Once your order has been accepted, the Contract between you and us will be performed immediately and you will waive any rights you may have had as a consumer to withdraw from the Contract once you have begun to download or stream the Product.
    8. Businesses. In using our Services on behalf of a business, corporate entity, or other organisation (“Business”) then you represent and warrant that:
      1. you are an authorized representative of the Business with the authority to bind the Business to these terms; and
      2. you agree to these terms on the Business’s behalf.
    9. If you are a Business this is our entire agreement with you. If you are a Business the Contract constitutes the entire agreement between us in relation to our Services. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, promise, representation, assurance, or warranty made or given by or on behalf of us which is not set out in these terms and that you shall have no claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in the Contract.
    10. If your order cannot be accepted. If your order cannot be accepted, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Product Licence. This might be because the chosen Product Licence or Product is no longer available, because there is an issue with your payment, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the chosen Product Licence or Product.
    11. Your order number. Once your order has been accepted, you will be given an order number. You should keep your order number safe, as it will help us to identify your order if ever you contact us.
    12. Products may vary slightly from their pictures and descriptions. The images of the Products as shown on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the typographical design of the Product accurately, we cannot guarantee that the illustration of the Product on our website accurately reflects all features of the Product and you should check the details for each Product (as listed on the relevant product page) carefully to ensure that the Product meets your requirements before placing your order. We will not be liable for any loss or damages which you could have avoided by following our advice to carefully check the details of the Product before placing your order.

    5. We are not liable for any loss or damage caused by the Product(s) sold on our website. To the extent permitted by law, we are not liable to you for any loss or damages arising under or in connection with the Product, which is sold to you on an “as is” basis.

    3. Exclusions to the extent of our liability. Except as expressly and specifically provided in these Terms, and subject always to clause 17.1:
      1. We exclude all implied conditions, warranties, representations or other terms that may apply to our Services, our website or any content on it.
      2. We will not be liable to you for any loss or damage, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, even if foreseeable, arising under or in connection with:

        4. the Products sold on our website.
      3. In particular, we will not be liable for:
        1. loss of profits, sales, business, or revenue;
        2. business interruption;
        3. loss of anticipated savings;
        4. loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation; or

  10. Which country's laws apply to any disputes?
    1. Consumers. If you are a consumer, please note that the Contract Terms, their subject matter, and their formation, are governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction except that if you are a consumer resident of Northern Ireland, you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.
    2. Businesses. If you are a Business, the Contract Terms, their subject matter, and their formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
  11. Other important terms
    1. We may transfer the Contract to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under the Contract to another organisation.
    2. You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else (except that you can always transfer our guarantee). You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under the Contract to another person if we agree to this in writing.
    3. Nobody else has any rights under the Contract. With the exception of clause 4 (The Licence) and clause 3 (Our Contract with you) of these Terms, and the EULA, no other person shall have any rights to enforce any of the Contract Terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise. The Foundry for the Product reserves the right to rely upon and where appropriate enforce clause 4 and clause 9 of these Terms and the EULA.
    4. If a court finds part of the Contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of the Contract Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
    5. Even if we delay in enforcing the Contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under the Contract, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking the Contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
