DEFINITION OF SHAREWARE
distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying it. If
you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected to
register. Individual programs differ on details -- some request
registration while others require it, some specify a maximum trial
period. With registration, you get anything from the simple right to
continue using the software to an updated program with printed manual.
laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the copyright
holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as stated
below. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like
commercial authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (In
both cases, there are good programs and bad ones!) The main difference
is in the method of distribution. The author specifically grants the
right to copy and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or
to a specific group. For example, some authors require written
permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their shareware.
is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find
software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's commercial
or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier,
because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is low,
prices are low also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee --
if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it.

- While we
do our best to make sure you enjoy our fonts to their fullest, please
remember that they are both technical, and artistic creations. We will
gladly provide support for technical questions. Requests for artistic
changes will be taken as suggestions, which implies one should not
expect aesthetic touches as part of a normal support. Nevertheless,
artistic point of views and suggestions are always welcome, and
contacting us, please make sure you have read the end of this document.
It has been written, based on questions asked very frequently, by users
who requested support. Finding the answer in this document will save
you time and aggravation.
practical and financial reasons, we cannot provide phone technical
support. You may, however report any problem at (310) 388-5216. We
will usually follow up within 24 hours (we try to reply as fast as
possible), by email or by fax.
- You can
contact us by email for insight. Please
try to be as specific as possible, in order to get appropriate help.
Remind us the name of the font you are using, on which platform (Mac,
Windows or OS/2), and the exact nature of the problem. Depending on the
complexity of the question, you will receive a reply, usually within 24
technical bugs will be fixed as rapidly as possible. However, given the
necessity for tests and verifications, it is impossible to give
standard time limit. In general, past experiences have shown an average
response in less than a week. When completed, font updates will be sent
to the customer who has reported the bug by email (or regular mail, if
no email is available).

STANDARD USER LICENSE
standard user license granted upon regular purchase is for ONE (1)
user. However, the software can be installed on several computers, as
long as only the licensed user is using it. For instance, fonts are
frequently used on a desktop computer, and a laptop. This license does
not grant in any way the right to distribute or sell the software.
licenses are available. These license allow simultaneous usage of the
software on several computers. Please contact us for more information.
- Users of
the fonts or programs must accept this disclaimer of warranty: "These
fonts or programs are supplied "as is". The author disclaims all
warranties, expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the
warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. The
author assumes no liability for damages, direct or consequential, which
may result from the use of these fonts."
- The fonts
delivered upon purchase are registered versions, and should under no
circumstance be passed around. They are reserved to your own use, or
the company who acquired them.
Evaluation versions are provided so users can test as they see fit the
fonts before purchase. Software is delivered electronically by download
to the user disk, and therefore cannot be returned, like hardware
goods. Hence all sales are final. If for any reason the registered
version of the font/program was provided to you directly by
Micr-Fonts.com or Match Software on a defective media (disk or archived
electronic content), it will be exchanged for a new one at no cost.
- If you
have suggestions for improving this font/program, we appreciate your
comments. It does not mean we will fix or modify the font in the way
you wish in a given time, or that we must do it in any way. However, if
we feel the suggestion is appropriate, next version of the software may
be inspired from this advice.
- We decline
any responsibility if for any reason this font/program is put to bad
use in any way. It worked fine on a regular configuration, and on a
regular printer, with the most usual software packages. If, for any
reason, it could not work on your specific configuration, Match
Software cannot be held responsible. As technical combinations are
almost infinite, and because systems evolve in ways we cannot predict,
it might happen a new system, or a particular configuration, does not
work with a font. For instance, because a new version of the system
requires a new font format. In general, we will try to keep up with the
system versions, and eventually offer upgrades, if possible, but it
does not constitute an obligation, nor would it be the case if you
acquired a set of seats cover for your specific car, and require they
fit any new car you may decide to buy later on.
- 4 - ASP
program is produced by a member of the Association of Shareware
Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware
principle works for you. If you are unable to resolve a
shareware-related problem with an ASP member by contacting the member
directly, ASP may be able to help. The ASP Ombudsman can help you
resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP member, but does not provide
technical support for members' products. Please contact the ASP
Ombudsman online at http://www.asp-shareware.org/about/ombudsman.asp.
