It is ultimately your sole responsibility to ensure that you or your organization possess sufficient rights to use, store on Penpot, and redistribute the fonts for use by your team members, and all users with whom you share the content stored at Penpot. Bear in mind that some of these uses may require you to get extended rights from the font licensor. Before uploading a font to Penpot or using a font from a third-party font provider, it is recommended that you consult the font licensor’s license agreement. Penpot holds the right to restrict or remove the use or storage of fonts that could bring any type of licensing conflicts.
