    Hi there, I have a quick question with regards to Google fonts and their API terms of service. The company I work for is looking to explore some possible alternatives to our current usage of Google fonts given the court ruling that occurred earlier this year in Germany – https://www.theregister.com/2022/01/31/website_fine_google_fonts_gdpr/ Self hosting the fonts is one possible solution but it seems reverse proxying requests would prove easier to implement should it be allowed. I’ve read through the Google Fonts API terms of service and haven’t found anything that suggests this might not be allowed but I am just looking to get some alternative points of view. Has anyone here had success doing the same ? Thanks for any help in advance – by /hq/im_not_awake_yet – –
