Google Fonts Privacy Statement

On our website we use Google Fonts. These are the “Google fonts” of the company Google Inc. For the European area, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services.

You don’t need to sign 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, requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google Account, you don’t need to worry about your Google account information being submitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google collects the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. We will take a look at exactly what the data storage looks like.

What are Google Fonts?

Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory of over 800 fonts that Google makes available to your users for free.

Many of these fonts are published under the SIL Open Font License, while others are released under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses.

Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?

With Google Fonts, we can use fonts on our own website, and we don’t have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important building block to keep the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web, saving data volume and being a major advantage for use on mobile devices. When you visit our site, the low file size ensures a fast load time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can sometimes visually distort texts or entire websites. Thanks to the fast content delivery network (CDN), there are no cross-platform issues with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all popular browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So we use the Google Fonts so that we can display our entire online service as beautifully and uniformly as possible.

What data is stored by Google?

When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. This external call transmits data to Google servers. In this way, Google also recognizes that you or Your IP address visits our website. The Google Fonts API is designed to reduce the use, storage and collection of end-user data to what is necessary for proper font delivery.By the way, API stands for “Application Programming Interface” and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software area.

Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google and is therefore protected.Through the collected usage figures, Google can determine how well the individual fonts are received. 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 the BigQuery database of Google Fonts. Entrepreneurs and developers use Google’s BigQuery web service to explore and move large amounts of data.

However, it should be borne in mind that every Google Font request also automatically transmits information such as language settings, IP address, version of the browser, screen resolution of the browser and name of the browser to the Google servers. Whether this data is also stored is not clearly ascertainable or is not clearly communicated by Google.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use the fonts using a Google style sheet. A style sheet is a style sheet that allows you to easily and quickly change e.B. the design or font of a web page.

The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google’s goal is to improve the loading time of websites in principle. When millions of web pages point 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 on https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=121406509. In this case, you only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. So we can access a sea of fonts indefinitely and get the best out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other questions on https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=121406509. Although Google deals with data protection-related matters, it does not contain really detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really accurate information about stored data from Google.

Google Fonts Local Privacy Policy

On our website we use Google Fonts from Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area. We have integrated the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server – not on Google’s servers. As a result, there is no connection to Google servers and thus no data transmission or storage.

What are Google Fonts?

In the past, Google Fonts was also called Google Web Fonts. This is an interactive directory with over 800 fonts that Google provides for free. With Google Fonts you could use fonts without uploading them to your own server. But in order to prevent any information transmission to Google servers in this regard, we have downloaded the fonts to our server. In this way, we act in accordance with data protection and do not forward any data to Google Fonts.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. So we can access a sea of fonts indefinitely and get the best out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other questions on https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=121406509.
