Wave of warnings Google Fonts

What it is about and what you should do

Many website operators are currently receiving warning letters because they allegedly violate personal rights by using Google Fonts. These letters come from the lawyer Kilian Lenard for Martin Ismail. In this article we want to clarify what exactly Google Fonts is, what the legal situation is and what this means for those affected.

What are Google Fonts?

Google Fonts is an interactive directory with numerous fonts, which Google provides for free use. Google Fonts has been around since 2010 and has been updated over the years. Every operator of a website can use Google Fonts freely without paying license fees. Google Fonts offers the option to embed fonts on the website without uploading them to the own server. In this case, however, when a user calls up the website, the corresponding fonts are reloaded via a Google server. As a result, data is also transferred to Google. Google Fonts can also be integrated locally on your own website, which disconnects the connection to the Google server and prevents data transmission to Google.

The facts

Currently, there are several warning lawyers who are searching the web for websites on which Google Fonts are used. Among others, the lawyer Kilian Lenard warns for Martin Ismail (IG Datenschutz) because of violation of personal rights by Google Fonts. The warning claims that the website of the addressee uses Google Fonts and that the IP address of the visitor is forwarded to Google in the USA. This is a violation of the general personal right of Martin Ismail in the form of the right of informational self-determination. However, against a payment of 170 € he would be willing to let this rest.

The legal situation

In a ruling dated January 20, 2022, the Munich I Regional Court decided that the use of (non-locally installed) Google Fonts without the consent of site visitors violates the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). The problem is that in the online version, the IP address of the person visiting the WebSite is transmitted to a Google server in the USA. An adequate level of data protection is not guaranteed there.

Consequences for those affected

We assume that Kilian Lenard and other warning lawyers have sent out thousands of such letters, so that it would appear that they are abusing their rights.
Nevertheless, if your website uses Google Fonts, you should ensure that these are integrated locally on your server. We will be happy to support you in implementing this in compliance with the DSGVO.

A lot has happened since the GDPR regulation. Pay attention to the legally compliant use of cookies and comparable technologies. If you are not sure whether your website meets these requirements, get in touch, we will be happy to help you and check your site for compliance with the DSGVO requirements.

You need support with the local integration of Google Fonts?
No problem! We will be happy to help you with the implementation.
