Embedding shall be permitted when using Fonts on the internet or other forms of digital publication in a way where the Font Software is not embedded, but the Fonts are displayed as image files such as JPEG, PNG, TIFF or BMP-files where it is not possible to ‘grab’ or extract the font sofware in any way. Such image formats are allowed as long as the image files do not feature more than 50% of the character set in the Font Software and as long as any image files feature fixed images, do not feature outlines of the Fonts, do not permit alteration by third parties and do not contain elements from the Font Software that are larger than 500 pixels in height.

In such cases the workflow PDF must comply with the following specifications: workflow PDFs must be transmitted individually on a one-by-one basis on a closed-network which is not publically accessible. A workflow PDF may not be made available in any manner which would enable a member of the public to download the Font Software e.g. on a publicly accessible web page or comparable format.
A Font may only be embedded on a website using the CSS @FontFace rule.
When embedding the Font Software in flash files (SWF format) for the purpose of creating vector graphics for web pages the following restrictions apply: Flash files must be ‘static’ and not ‘dynamic’ in order to prevent any third party from extracting, copying, modifying, or any other way gaining access to the Font Software.

A font hosting service that prevents the Fonts from being downloaded in full by the end-user must be used. Contact A2-TYPE Support for further details and information on font hosting services and licencing for other dynamic and editable embedding requirements.
