In order to present our contents correctly and in a graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website.

If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, the contents will be displayed in a default font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible for the operators of corresponding libraries to collect data – but currently also unclear if they do and if so, for what purposes.
