Google Web Fonts – local hosting
Google Webfonts is a service provided by Google Inc (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) that enables us to embed fonts into our websites. Normally, the fonts are loaded from Google servers when they are used on a website. However, when using local hosting, the fonts are hosted on our own server.
The fonts are hosted locally to ensure a consistent presentation of the texts on our website and to optimize loading times. When Google Fonts are hosted locally, neither personal data is collected nor is any data automatically transferred to the Google servers or other third parties. Since the fonts are hosted on our own server, there is no communication with the Google servers. When Google Fonts are hosted locally, no cookies are used by Google, as there is no communication with Google servers.
The legal basis for the processing of data in the local hosting use of Google Fonts is Article 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. The processing is in our legitimate interest to ensure an appealing presentation of our website content.
Further information on the privacy of Google Fonts’ local hosting use can be found in Googles current Privacy FAQs Privacy and Data Collection | Google Fonts | Google for Developers .
