This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for uniform font display. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, your browser must connect to Google's servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address.

Your computer uses a default font if your browser does not support web fonts.
