Section 6 Third party services

Use of Google Web Fonts

To display our content correctly across browsers and in an appealing manner, we use the Google Web Fonts library ( from third party provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.

In doing so, it is theoretically possible – although it is not clear that this occurs and, if so, for what purposes – that the operators of these libraries may collect data. The data privacy policy of library operator Google is available here:
