Hi,

now it is forbidden, to use google-web-fonts.  I have to turn them off on all sites -  it must be ensured, that the website does NOT open a connection to google.

Please tell me, how to do?

Hello,

Aw man really I didn't realize this. Do you have a link where I can read the entirety on this new rule?

You would have to download the font and then manually add reference to it. Something like this in your custom.css file:

Code:
@font-face {
font-family: "Harabara Bold";
src: url("css/fonts/Harabara.eot");
src:
url("css/fonts/Harabara.woff") format("woff"),
url("css/fonts/Harabara.otf") format("opentype"),
url("css/fonts/Harabara.svg#filename") format("svg");
}

But Vertex calls the Google URLs so we might have to include an option to turn this off in Vertex.


Thanks

Jonahh,

sorry, it is really a shame, what happens with this damned GDPR.   It makes no sense...but it is the law.  Unfortschnittly the source of information is mostly in German, but maybe  Google can translate it.

Google fonts and privacy
Every time you visit Google Fonts, the browser asks Google's server if there were any changes to the fonts or the CSS file. Google recognizes which page a request is sent from and also much of the personal browser history. Many websites use the free and easy to integrate Google fonts and only a few people block their referrers or similar. So Google gets a relatively dense exploitable network of data that can be tracked by any normal user who moves on the Internet.

https://www.hubit.de/google-tracking-von-admins-und-web-besuchern-mit-google-fonts/


The big problem is, that many corporations engange an external company to manage all doings about privacy protection. Such sata security engineers analyses the companies website and work out a list of points, which must be solved.

Cookie-bar, https, youtube-nocookie, facebook-like-button and so on. If they order to turn off the Google-Fonts, we had to do it.  Sense or no sense -  it is customers order.

Because nobody wanna be the first who has to pay a high fine.

So we need a solution for existing and future websites, to turn off google fonts. 

Sorry for this troubles, but Europe is a little hypertensive with that privacy protections, but we can't change this and have to make the best of a bad job.

Ok so this appears to be a blog of some sort? Do you if there is some official government website with a document stating this? Or perhaps the language the government is using is a bit broad. Thus people are removing external Google font calls to cover their bases and not get fined?

Thanks

Yes!

You can read that damned law here:     https://www.iitr.us/eudatap.html

There is no paragraph, which says, that google-fonts are forbidden. The experts says: Google-Fonts saves and collects IP-adresses, this is tracking.

About tracking says the DSGVO:


Quote
6. The legal basis for the processing of personal data by telemedia service providers is therefore only Article 6 (1), in particular (a), (b) and (f) GDPR. In addition, the general principles of Article 5 (1) GDPR, as well as the specific requirements for From Article 25 (2) GDPR.

7. Processing operations which are strictly necessary for the provider to provide the service requested by the data subjects may, if appropriate, be based on Article 6 (1) (b) or (f) of the GDPR.

8. Whether and to what extent other processing activities are lawful must be assessed by weighing interests on a case-by-case basis on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR.
"9. In any case, prior consent must be given in the use of tracking mechanisms that make the behavior of data subjects on the internet comprehensible and in the compilation of user profiles, which means that informed consent in the sense of DSGVO, in form an explanation or other clearly confirming action must be obtained prior to processing, ie, for example, before cookies are placed or information stored on the user's device is collected. "
This view is consistent with the European understanding of Article 5 (3) of the ePrivacy Directive. In the majority of EU Member States, the ePrivacy Directive has been fully transposed into national law, or supervisors are already calling for an "opt-in" in line with Article 5 (3) of the Directive.

Since the references in the ePrivacy Directive to the Data Protection Directive pursuant to Article 94 (2) GDPR are to be considered as references to the GDPR, consent must i. P. D. ePrivacy Directive Europe-wide from 25.05.2018 meet the requirements for consent under the DSGVO. In order to ensure a uniform enforcement of European data protection law in the future, it must be ensured that those responsible in Germany also implement these data protection requirements.

This paper will be updated in the light of developments at European level.

Wow ok. Well for now the best option would be to type in a non Google font into the font box. Like "arial" or "times new roman". This would stop Google fonts from loading. Then you could manually add a font in via the index.php file.
