Embed

With regard to fonts, embedding is when a font file becomes a part of the specific software, file, or website. For example, under the E-Pub License, a font may be embedded in a PDF or eBook, which will allow the customer to view text created with that font. Please note that our licenses do not allow embedding in a way that enables the end user to extract the font files. Please see each specific font license for more details on which type of embedding is permitted, if any.

Social Media Account: Business

A social media account, as mentioned in our License terms, refers to a social media "presence" and may include social media accounts on multiple platforms that are all owned by the same person, company, or brand. For example, your business might have a Twitter account, Facebook account, and Instagram account with the same, or a similar, handle. This is one social media presence. A social media presence for a business forwards a common business or company and might result, directly or indirectly, in product sales or revenue.


Social Media Account: Personal

A social media account, as mentioned in our License terms, refers to a social media "presence" and may include social media accounts on multiple platforms that are all owned by the same person. For example, you might have a Twitter account, Facebook account, and Instagram account with the same, or a similar, handle. This is one social media presence. A personal social media presence is one you use for personal activities like family updates, pictures of pets, a log of your hobbies, or other personal posting. It does not result, directly or indirectly, in product sales or revenue.


Static Image

A flattened image that cannot be reverse-engineered to extract any vector, type, or individual raster asset. Static images might include flattened files like JPG, PNG, GIF, etc. Layered files like PSD and AI are not static images.


Title

One specific published E-Publication, game, or application. A title may be released in multiple formats. For example, an E-book entitled "Memoirs" may be released in PDF, EPUB, and Kindle formats; the title is released in 3 different formats but is still the same title. A prequel, sequel, or subsequent edition of the book would be considered a separate title.
