If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, the text will be displayed in a default font.
Data submitted in connection with the page visit is sent to resource-specific domains such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com. They are not associated with data that may be collected or used in connection with the parallel use of authenticated Google services.
You can set your browser so that the fonts are not loaded from Google servers (e.g. by installing add-ons like NoScript or Ghostery for Firefox.) If your browser does not support Google Fonts or if you block access to the Google servers, the text will be displayed in the system's default font.
This website uses plug-ins from the American company Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. As a consequence, log information may be transmitted from our website to Vimeo.
