Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a webpage, your browser uploads the requisite web fonts into your browser cache, in order to display texts and typefaces correctly. To do this, your browser has to connect with Google’s servers. This informs Google that our website has been accessed from your IP address. We use Google web fonts in the interest of creating a uniform and appealing visual representation of our online services. This is a legitimate goal as defined in DSGVO Art. 6, Para 1, lit f.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.
You can find more information on Google web fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s data protection policies at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
