We use Google Fonts from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on our website.
You do not have to log in or enter a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts / fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, the requests for Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you don’t have to worry that your Google account details will be transmitted to Google while you are using Google Fonts.
Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?
With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our own website and do not have to upload them to our own server. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web. This saves data volume and is a great advantage, especially for use with mobile devices. Google Fonts supports all common browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems.
So we use Google Fonts so that we can present our entire online service as beautifully and uniformly as possible. According to Art. 6 Para. 1 f lit. F GDPR, this already represents a “legitimate interest” in the processing of personal data. In this case, “legitimate interest” is understood to mean both legal and economic or non-material interests that are recognized by the legal system.
Which data is saved by Google?
When you visit our website, the fonts are downloaded from a Google server. This external call transmits data to the Google server. In this way, Google also recognizes that you or your IP address are visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the collection, storage and use of end-user data to what is necessary for the efficient provision of fonts.
Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google and is therefore protected. Google can determine the popularity of the fonts through the collected usage figures. Google publishes the results on internal analysis sites such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts’ BigQuery database. BigQuery is a web service from Google for companies that move and analyze large amounts of data.
It should be noted, however, that information such as the IP address, language settings, screen resolution of the browser, version of the browser and the name of the browser are automatically transmitted to the Google server with every Google Font request. It is not clear whether this data is saved or not clearly communicated by Google.
How long and where is the data stored?
Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on your servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This enables us to use the fonts with the help of a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a format template that can be used to change the design or font of a website quickly and easily.
The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google’s goal is to fundamentally improve the loading time of websites. If millions of websites refer to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other websites visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is accessed. To be able to delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/. In this case, you only prevent data storage if you are not visiting our site.
You can also read which data is generally recorded by Google and what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
