We obtain information about you when you create a user account on Typerepublic, when you purchase a typeface license from us, when you subscribe to our mailing list to receive our newsletter or when you simply get in touch by email. Some of this information is necessary in order to invoice you regarding your purchases.

When you purchase a font from Typerepublic, you agree to any of our licenses. Therefore, you acquire some sort of contractual relationship with us. We will save the necessary data from this contract as long as our relationship is in effect. This can include personal information (name, address, e-mail, telephone number) and professional information (company name, VAT number). Access to your account information requires a password. You are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We keep your personal information safe for as long as your account is active. Nevertheless, we do not collect card information from you since it is directly transmitted to our credit card service Stripe when you purchase our fonts. Typerepublic does not get any information of your card details. Stripe protects your confidentiality of all transaction information.
