Using script libraries (Google Webfonts)

Type and purpose of the processing:

In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use ‘Google Webfonts’ provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter ‘Google’) to display fonts on this website.
You’ll find the data protection guidelines of the library operator Google here:

Legal basis:

Your consent is the legal basis for the integration of Google Webfonts and the thereto related data transfer to Google (art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).


The use of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. Therefore it is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether at all and if so for what purpose – that the operator, in this case Google, will collect data.

Retention period:

We do not collect any personal data via the integration of Google Webfonts.
Please find further information concerning Google Webfonts here: or in Google’s data privacy statement

Third country transfer:

Google processes your data in the USA and is subject to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield

Mandatory or required provision:

The provision of your personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. However, the correct presentation of standard-fonts content is not possible without this provision.
