Google Ireland Limited,  Gordon  House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to only as “Google”, is responsible for Europe.

This enables data, meetings and interactions to be assigned a pseudonym user-ID and the activities of a user to be analysed in this way.

is generally sent to a server of Google in the USA and saved there. Through certification in accordance with the EU-US data protection shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”)


Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.

The information is used by Google on our behalf to assess the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide additional services associated with the use of the website and the internet for the purpose of market research and structuring these web pages in line with requirements. However, in the event of the activation of IP-anonymisation on this website, your IP-address will be abbreviated in advance by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the agreement regarding the European Economic Area. We would like to point out that Google Analytics has been expanded by one IP-anonymisation on this website in order to ensure the anonymised collection of IP-addresses (so-called IP-masking). The IP-address transmitted from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be amalgamated with other data from Google. You can find more information on conditions of use and data protection at

7.  Google fonts


We use so-called fonts on our website for a uniform presentation of external typefaces, which is a list of more than one hundred typefaces. This is a service provided by Google LLC. Google Ireland Limited,  Gordon  House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to only as “Google”, is responsible for Europe.

When you call up a website, your browser will load the fonts required in your browser cache to display texts and typefaces correctly. For this purpose the browser you use must make a connection to the servers of Google.  This will provide Google with the information that our website has been called up with your IP-address. Google Fonts saves CSS and font inquiries and publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. In addition, Google also uses data from its own web crawlers to identify which websites use Google fonts. These data are published in the BigQuery database of Google Fonts. In addition to the IP-address, additional information such as the language settings, browser version, screen resolution of the browser and name of the browser are automatically transmitted to the Google servers through every Google Fonts inquiry.

Through certification in accordance with the EU-US data protection shield (“EU-US Privacy Shield”)


Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.

The use of Google Fonts takes place in the interest of uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This automatically optimises all typefaces for use on the internet, which leads to smaller file sizes and faster loading times. The legal basis for the use of Google Fonts is Art. 6 Para. 1 Cl. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If your browser does not support Google Fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.


You can find further information on Google Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the data protection declaration of Google: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
