Can I use a font on my website?

Yes; under the Webfont License, a font may be converted to a webfont and embedded in your website’s code using @font-face technology.

When I purchase a Webfont License, do I receive separate font files than I would if I bought a Desktop License?

No matter which font license you purchase, you will receive the same set of files; product files are not differentiated by license at this time. The license you purchase determines the rights you are allowed. For example, if a font comes with OTF, TTF, and webfont files, and you purchase a Webfont License, you are only allowed to use the font in ways that are permitted under the Webfont License. If you purchase a Desktop License for that font, you may only use the font in ways permitted under the Desktop License, even though the font also comes with webfonts.

You may only use the Licensed webfont with the @font-face selector in your CSS files.

Can I use the TTF or OTF font included in my Webfont folder to design on a desktop?

No. The Webfont License prohibits all other non webfont use, such as desktop, app, web app, game, e-pub, end product for sale use.
