Using Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you are opening a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser needs to connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as requests through a contact form that you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by changing the address line of the browser from “http: //” to “https: //” and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
