Why? Google provides a variety of fonts (typefaces; Google Fonts/Webfonts) for free and allows you to use different typefaces for free. There are two ways you can use Google Fonts on your website. The first is to embed them locally, and the second is to load them externally. Embedding Google Fonts locally does not result in a GDPR violation. But when loading Google Fonts externally, a data protection issue arises. The reason for this is: In this case, the fonts are stored on Google’s servers, and since the Google servers are connected in the USA, the user’s IP address (personal data) is transmitted to Google.
