Quantum Enterprises accepts no responsibility for loss or damage, either direct or indirect, as a result of installing or using fonts, or software, supplied as part of the handwriting font service. We also draw your attention to our specific Software License Agreement for using the Scriptalizer™ software and the note on fonts supplied for Macintosh (below).
Quantum Enterprises does not accept responsibility for loss or damage of font forms sent in the post, nor for any problems arising from the sending and receiving of font forms and font files via the Internet.
Standard and Premium 'Ultra' Service fonts will normally processed within 28 days. However, these lead times cannot be guaranteed during times of very high demand (e.g. during advertising campaigns) or from circumstances that occur beyond our control.
We will only retain handwriting fonts and associated submission forms for a maximum of 30 days. It is your responsibility to make backups of fonts. If you lose a font after the 30 day period you will be required to make another purchase.
LIMITATIONS OF HANDWRITING FONTS
By using our handwriting font creation service, you are accepting that certain limitations apply when trying to reproduce handwriting as a font. These limitations are:
Premium 'Ultra' Service
Fonts Supplied For The Macintosh
OSX - The OSX operating system recognises and can use TrueType Fonts as they are supplied. However, later versions of the Macintosh OSX operating system may report errors on some True Type fonts. Customers who have had this problem, and who have installed the fonts anyway, have found the fonts to function with no problem. We once again remind you that Quantum Enterprises accepts no responsibility for loss or damage, either direct or indirect, as a result of installing or using fonts, supplied as part of the handwriting font service.
Mac OS 9 - Your font will be supplied as a converted mtt.bin file, in addition to the TrueType Version. The Stuffit Expander is required to decompress the font for installation.
Some Macintosh customers occasionally find that the mapping on fonts is affected by the conversion process, and some characters (generally punctuation) do not correctly show. This is beyond our control, but will try and work around the problem if possible.
If you have any doubts or concerns about the compatibility of our fonts with your Apple Macintosh, we recommend you try downloading, installing and testing one of our free fonts from The Font Vault before making a decision to purchase, or purchasing full access to one of our example Premium 'Ultra' fonts for a nominal fee. This is particularly important if you are considering using a font for a non-standard (non-word processing application).
The Font Vault (Standard
During your purchase of a Standard Service font you will be given option to allow your font to be used in the 'Font Vault'. The 'Font Vault' is a collection of freely available handwriting fonts available for download from our web pages. Your signature will be removed from the version published on the web.
By allowing us to use your font in the 'Font Vault' you are also permitting Quantum Enterprises to freely monetise your font without any further recompense to you.
Pre-Made (Example) Premium 'Ultra'
During the purchase of a Premium 'Ultra' font you will be given the option to allow your fonts to be made available in the Scriptalizer™ software as an 'Example' font. This will allow users to access your font within the Scriptalizer™, and also give them the option to purchase a copy.
Allowing Quantum Enterprises to use your font as an example fonts provides the following benefits:
- A discount on the purchase price
- Free upgrades to the font when the Scriptalizer™ / Premium 'Ultra' specification is updated.
Your name and signature(s) will be removed from the example version of the font.
By allowing us to use your font as an 'Example' Premium 'Ultra' font you are also permitting Quantum Enterprises to freely monetise your font without any further recompense to you.
