In order to display our contents correctly and in a graphically appealing manner across browsers, we use "Google Web Fonts" from Google on our website to display fonts.

The files (CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), fonts) are requested via the Google domains and According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. Google records the use of CSS and the fonts used and stores this data securely. When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. This external call-up transmits data to the Google servers. In this way, Google also recognises that you or your IP address is visiting our website. Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. The font files are stored by Google for one year.

The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is called up. To delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at New Window. You can also find out what data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for at New Window.
