As a result of the generated connection, Google can identify the website that the enquiry was made from and the IP address that the display of the font is to be transmitted to.

In doing so, Google Fonts does not set or transmit cookies. Google Fonts analyses website visitor data only in aggregated form, i.e. the data is used to generate general statistics (e.g. which font is used how often).

Google Fonts is used to optimise the design of our website, this use qualifies as a legitimate interest on our part. The legal basis for this use is Art. 6 Sect. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
