Today I received a notice from our legal department that the use of Google Maps may result in a warning.
Many website operators are currently affected by a wave of warnings. The background is the use of the font package “Google Fonts”. This is used automatically when Google services such as the Maps service are integrated into a website. The problem is as follows: Google Fonts is not compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
And to solve this problem, Google Fonts would have to be removed and permission would have to be obtained for the use of Google services.
One should place more buttons on the map itself for accepting Google services or rejecting them. In addition, a link to Google “Privacy & Terms” should be placed. Only then will the map be loaded and displayed.
The whole thing may be overly German, but better safe than sorry.
