Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

 To make our content browser-friendly and graphically accurate, we use Google Web Script script libraries and font libraries (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this site. Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font. Legal basis for the use of Google Webfonts is our legitimate interest in the correct graphical representation of our website. Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The application of script libraries or font libraries automatically establishes a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
