4.3 Google Web Fonts (Offline Version)
This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. We have opted for the offline version, in which the Google Fonts are stored locally on our web server. The management of the fonts is then possible - using CSS - as with any other font family. A transmission of the IP address and other data to Google does not take place.
Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers with regard to efficiency and cost-saving considerations. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
