Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)

So that content across browsers is displayed correctly and in a way that is graphically appealing, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website such as Google web fonts ( Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to avoid repeated loading. If the browser does not support Google web fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a standard font.

Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a link to the operator of the library. It is therefore theoretically possible – although it is currently also unclear whether and for what purposes – that operators collect the corresponding library data.
