7. Use of Google Fonts
Google Fonts is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"). With the help of Google Fonts, fonts can be displayed on our websites. When individual pages of this website are accessed, a font is retrieved from the font database. During this retrieval, the respective IP address of the user is retrieved and transmitted to Google in a pseudonymised form. However, no cookies or other identifying features are stored or transmitted. The described processing allows fonts of the web pages to be offered in the most current form, thus increasing the availability of the website in general. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera f GDPR. We ourselves do not collect any personal data through the use of the tool. Google states that it will retain requests to retrieve fonts for up to 365 days. Through browser settings (e.g. blocking the API of Google Fonts), the data processing can be countered. However, this can result in the web pages no longer being correctly displayed.
