Google Fonts – Website

Like much of the internet, we use Google Fonts on our website. Google Font files are cached locally on your browser and used across different websites. Google uses your IP address for this. From Google: 

The font files themselves are cached for one year, which cumulatively has the effect of making the entire web faster: When millions of websites all link to the same fonts, they are cached after visiting the first website and appear instantly on all other subsequently visited sites. We do sometimes update font files to reduce their file size, increase coverage of languages, and improve the quality of their design. The result is that website visitors send very few requests to Google: We only see 1 CSS request per font family, per day, per browser.
