Thanks for your fast reply!
You're right, of course (the site can't function properly without loading essential icons…).
However, the key point in German law seems that if you are using CDN (meaning i.e. the transmission of IP by a company outside the EU using an online service) you have to inform the visitor of your website and obtain consent (omg! :disappointed:). In this case (for the necessary icons from Fonts Awesome) it’s really crazy at all, meaning you have to obtain consent from the visitor before entering the website.
So, to minimize the ‘risk’ and to be safe, I have added in my privacy policies the corresponding information of using Google fonts and Font Awesome on the website as recommended (in my case local installation, so no connection to servers of Google or Fonticons, Inc.).
Furthermore, I have disabled the use of CDN (although all the drawbacks) to avoid the obtaining of consent in this case (seemingly necessary because of the German law).
This topic is really tough stuff and really crazy at all (EU/German legally).
Hope there will be a clear legal interpretation in near future concerning this issue… (just dreaming…).
Again, thank you very much. :slight_smile:
