FAQ

Find answers to the most common questions below. If you can't see an answer to a question you have, email us at info@hottype.com.

In addition to the design and production services of our original retail typefaces, we offer services such as custom typeface design, logo/wordmark design, lettering, consulting on typeface matters, and modifications of our existing retail typefaces. We’ve successfully performed such work for the Louvre Museum, L’Oréal Group, Nike, Fifth Third Bank, and Calvin Klein, among others. Please get in touch via email and describe your project ideas.

This depends on a number of parameters. A good starting point is to define your needs prior to requesting a quote. In general, two main components are considered:
1. License type – There are three different licensing possibilities: a Non-exclusive License (the custom typeface can be used by other people), a Partially-exclusive License (the fonts are exclusively available only for a limited period of time, e.g., 2 or 5 years), or an Exclusive License (the client buys the rights regarding the fonts for an unlimited amount of time).
2. Design and production costs – Design complexity, number of styles, language coverage, character set extras, such as small caps, numerals, symbols, etc.
Get in touch with us via email for further information.

We can create additional characters, styles, weights of fonts, or simply rename the fonts to make the client integration easier. In addition to the cost of the Standard License which you have probably already paid, you will also be charged for the costs of the implementation of these modifications. Please do get in touch with us to discuss your needs. Due to the fact that fonts are protected by copyright law and License Agreements, we can’t modify other type foundries’ fonts. In such cases, please contact the copyright holder to request modifications.

We accept payments via Credit Card, Apple Pay and PayPal through Mollie. Get in touch with us if you wish to purchase font software by bank/wire transfer.

No, we cannot issue refunds for font software purchases. We are not responsible for a customer licensing the wrong font(s). Please make sure to check your cart items before completing your order.

Depends if you are buying as physical person (B2C) or business entity (B2B). According to Croatian law we charge Croatian VAT rate of 25% for all orders made by physical persons. If you are an business entity from EU with a valid VAT ID number, please fill in the VAT entry field during checkout to avoid being charged VAT. All other business entities are not charged VAT (Reverse charge Law on VAT, Article 17). All Croatian customers are automatically charged the VAT rate of 25%.

All product prices shown on the website do not include VAT or any other taxes. In case there is VAT applicable it will be calculated during checkout. All prices are displayed in Euro (EUR). For our Croatian customers prices are converted from Euro (EUR) to Kuna (HRK) based on daily exchange rate from Croatian National Bank (HNB) https://www.hnb.hr/en/core-functions/monetary-policy/exchange-rate-list/exchange-rate-list

EULA is an abbreviation that stands for “End User License Agreement.” It encompasses the terms and conditions that define the use of our typefaces, which protects the client-foundry relationship. You can find the entire EULA here (LINK TO PAGE). The terms for all our customers are the same and cannot be modified. Please note that by downloading and/or installing any of our typefaces, you are automatically and explicitly agreeing to the terms and conditions of our EULA.

Please read our EULA (LINK TO PAGE)–it is a legally binding document. The main points of the License are as follows:
1. The standard License enables only a single user for the use the fonts. If additional people are going to use the fonts, you need to upgrade the existing License in order to cover multiple users.
2. By buying the License you are only buying the right to use the fonts. The fonts themselves remain the exclusive property of Hot Type.
3. You can back up the font data–in fact, your Hot Type online account is also a backup of the latest versions of the fonts–but you may not modify the fonts in any way.
4. If the fonts don’t work, we are going to replace them.
5. You can’t create other fonts which are based on our fonts. You are also prohibited from selling or renting modified versions of our fonts.
6. You need a special License if you intend to embed the fonts in games or other software products.
7. You can embed fonts into PDFs and eBooks for free (you are going to need the Desktop License to make such documents), but you must set embedding to prevent font extraction.
8. Hot Type fonts are copyrighted and trademarked.
9. If you violate these terms, this agreement will be cancelled.
10. You may transfer the Font License to a third party if they agree to the licensing conditions in writing and you destroy your physical copies of the fonts and confirm this in writing as well.
11. We can’t guarantee that the fonts will be suitable for your projects.

During check-out, you have the option to differentiate between Billing Info and Licensee Info, in case you’re buying the license on behalf of your client (i.e., the License Owner).

If you already own the license, before handing over the open files or package files to the client, make sure the client gets their license as well. If you’ve used trial fonts to make a proposal and that design gets approved, the client should pay for the license, and you are covered by their license. You can also buy the license on their behalf–during check-out, you have the option to differentiate between Billing Info and Licensee Info.

We offer a student discount of 50% off all typefaces, so long as they’re used for individual, non-commercial or student-initiated, commercial projects. If you are a student and you wish to purchase some of our products, please get in touch with us and make sure you’re able to confirm your active student status.

Yes, if you get Desktop license for up to 3 users, each user can install fonts on multiple devices that are operated by the same user (desktop computer, laptop, tablet etc.).

Please send an email detailling the problem to support@hottype.co. We will do our best to troubleshoot and generate new font files until the issue is solved.

Our fonts are optimized for up-to-date browsers, mobile operating systems, and professional graphic design applications. Hot Type does not guarantee support for office applications like Microsoft Word. In any case, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via email.

Absolutely not! Our EULA (LINK TO PAGE) has very strict rules in place regarding this matter. Please get in touch with us if you think something could look and/or work differently. We can potentially apply the modifications that you have in mind with and for you.

WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION?
Under no circumstances are we going to sell or otherwise give away your information to third parties. Only the employees of Hot Type, who have received special training regarding the protection of the privacy of your data, have access to your information. Additionally, we are legally obliged to transfer some of your information to the local tax authorities, and our tax accountants (Optimum G) also have access to some of the billing details.

STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO HELP US KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE
There are many steps you can take to help us keep your information safe. First and foremost, choose complex, independent passwords for each website and service you maintain an account with. This helps keep any breach of any of your accounts isolated to one service. Also, don’t use anything related to your birthday, address, phone number, PIN number or any other easily guessable information in your password.

We urge your caution when using public computers or networks, like at a coffee shop or library. To best protect your personal information and login information, don’t use such computers to access your sensitive accounts, and if you must, ensure that you logout of your account entirely.

When either you or we update information in your account, we typically send you notice of these changes via email or text message. In recent years, individuals, businesses and even governments have seen a rise in “phishing” attacks. Phishing occurs when someone attempts to obtain your password or other sensitive information. Scammers often do this by impersonating a trusted user, or by offering a compelling reason to open a malicious email attachment, click on a link or give over information. We never ask for your sensitive personal information, such as password, over email or other unsecure methods. Please notify us at marko@hottype.co if you ever receive suspicious correspondence from us.

THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS WORKING ON OUR BEHALF
We may pass your information to our Third-Party Service Providers, subcontractors, and software developers for the sole purpose of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example, to send you mailings). However, when we use Third Party Service Providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary in order to deliver the service, and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please rest assured that we are not going to release your information to third parties beyond the necessary scope of our services, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of the prevention of fraud or other crimes.

Personal information may be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, a merger, consolidation, sale of our assets, as well as equity financing, acquisition, strategic alliance or in any other situation where personal information may be transferred as one of the business assets of Hot Type.

We may forward your personal data to third parties in the following cases:

a) If the data need to be forwarded for the purpose of fulfilling our obligations under the contract concluded with the user;
b) If there is a legal obligation for us on the basis of which we are obliged to forward certain data to third parties;
c) If there is the consent of the user.

YOUR CHOICES
You may cancel your Hot Type account at any time by signing in to your Account profile and clicking on the “Cancel my account” link. However, we may be obliged to hold some types of information in order to fulfil our statutory obligations (for example, the financial transaction records) and records about your purchase history to carry out our obligation to the local tax authorities, or provide necessary licensing information to the respective font copyright holder. We are going to delete any information we hold in connection with your account when it is no longer necessary to keep.

The period for which we store your personal data depends on a particular purpose for the processing of personal data, as explained in this Privacy Policy. We retain personal data for as long as we reasonably require it for legal or business purposes. In determining data retention periods, we take into consideration the applicable law, contractual obligations, and the expectations and requirements of our Users. When we no longer need personal information, or when you request us to delete your information, where this is legal, we will securely delete or destroy it.

However, as an exception to the retention periods the data may be processed to determine, pursue or defend claims and counterclaims.

HOW YOU CAN ACCESS AND UPDATE YOUR INFORMATION
It is important to ensure that the information about you is accurate. If you change your email address or any of your contact information, please update your information accordingly and directly online. This way you can receive, for example, our printed merch/goodies.

You have the right to ask for a copy of the information Hot Type holds about you.

Information is provided to the Data Subject at the earliest convenience, but at a maximum of thirty (30) days from the date the request was received. Where the retrieval or provision of information is particularly complex or is subject to a valid delay, the period may be extended by two further months where necessary.

You have the right to request from us that your personal data is deleted in certain circumstances including:

• The personal data are no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected;
• You withdraw your consent (where the processing was based on consent);
• You object to the processing and no overriding legitimate grounds are justifying us processing the personal data;
• The personal data have been unlawfully processed; or
• To comply with a legal obligation.

However, this right does not apply where, for example, the processing is necessary:

• To comply with a legal obligation; or
• For the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If the accuracy of the personal data is contested, you consider the processing is unlawful but you do not want it erased, we no longer need the personal data, but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing and verification, you can exercise your right to the restriction of processing.

If you have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data, you have the right to fully or partly withdraw your consent. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented unless there is another legal ground for the processing.

The transfer of personal data to another controller will be performed by the Data Controller at the request of the User, provided that he has given his consent for such transfer, and the processing is carried out automatically, as well as provided that such transfer is technically feasible.

If you have any concerns or requests in relation to your personal data, please contact us at marko@hottype.co and we will respond as soon as possible but not later than within thirty (30) days.

If you are unsatisfied with the way we process your data, you may contact the competent supervisory authority.

In case you believe that we are processing your personal data in violation of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority located in the EEA where you reside or work or where the alleged infringement took place.

SECURITY PRECAUTIONS IN PLACE TO PROTECT THE LOSS, MISUSE, OR ALTERATION OF YOUR INFORMATION
When you entrust us with your personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any personal data, such as billing and shipping address, is encrypted and protected with 128-bit encryption on SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear at the bottom of your respective web browser.

For the avoidance of doubt, such transfers, assignments or other transfers will not affect the rights granted to User, as appropriate, by law, nor will they reduce or in any way limit the express and implied warranty we have given the User.

8. DOWNLOADED PRODUCTS

After they have been downloaded, fonts are not returnable or refundable. Fonts and other Hot Type’s Services and Products may be returned or exchanged only if they are defective and we are notified within 7 days of the order placement. If there is a problem with your order, let us know within 24 hours of purchase, and we will attempt to remedy the situation.

9. THE RIGHT TO UNILATERAL TERMINATION OF THE CONTRACT

Pursuant to Article 79 of the Consumer Protection Act, the User is not entitled to unilateral termination of the Agreement if:

• The service contract is fully fulfilled by the trader, and the fulfilment began with the explicit prior consent of the consumer and with his confirmation that he is aware of the fact that he will lose the right to unilateral termination of the contract from this section if the service is fully fulfilled;

• The subject of the contract is the delivery of digital content that is not delivered on physical media if the fulfilment of the contract began with the explicit prior consent of the consumer and with his confirmation that he is aware of the fact that he will lose the right to unilateral termination.

By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, the User explicitly agrees that the contract, due to its nature, falls under the circumstances arising from Article 79, i.e., from this chapter of the Terms and Conditions, and the User consequently waives his right to unilateral termination, considering the subject of the contract is the delivery of digital content that is not delivered on physical media, and the fulfilment of the contract begins with the explicit prior consent of the consumer and with his confirmation that he is aware of the fact that he will lose the right to unilateral termination.

10. TERMINATION BY HOT TYPE

Hot Type may deny you access to all or any part of the Services or terminate your account with or without prior notice if you engage in any conduct or activities for which Hot Type determines, at its sole discretion, that they violate this Agreement or the rights of Hot Type or any third party, or is or are otherwise inappropriate.
