The legal basis for the processing of this personal data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f of the GDPR (legitimate interests of the controller).

6. Google Fonts
Our website uses Google Fonts to achieve uniform presentation of fonts. When you view the website, your browser downloads the fonts to the browser cache to be able to display texts and fonts correctly. To this end, the browser you use has to connect to the Google servers. This makes Google aware of the fact that our website was viewed at your IP address. It is not known for what purposes this data is processed. If your browser does not support Web fonts, one of your computer’s standard fonts is used instead.
7. Social media
We use specially created buttons on our website to create a link to Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. These are incorporated locally on the server that hosts pswp.de and not by any plug-ins provided by Twitter etc. No data is therefore shared with social networks when you visit the pswp website. When you click on one of the social media buttons, you leave the pswp website and are redirected to the website of the service in question. You must actively log into your profile in order for data to be transmitted.
The addresses of the social networks and the URLs for their data privacy policies are as follows: Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, California 94103, USA (https://twitter.com/privacy) – Twitter has committed itself to the EU–US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework); Xing AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Germany (http://www.xing.com/privacy); LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA (http://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy) – LinkedIn has committed itself to the EU–US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework).
We use Nextcloud software for the purposes of easier data exchange. When a website is visited on the server, we record the date and time of the page view, the URL viewed and the user’s browser and IP address. The company Nextcloud GmbH, Hauptmannsreute 44A, 70192 Stuttgart, Germany (‘Nextcloud’), additionally records the user’s email address if this was used for content sharing. The period during which these details are retained depends on the expiry date of the link used. This period is generally 30 days.
