Use of script libraries (web fonts)

To ensure correct and visually appealing presentation of our content regardless of which browser you use, this website uses script libraries and font libraries by Typotheque. Retrieval of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a download of the typefaces, requiring a connection to the library’s operator. It is theoretically possible that operators of such libraries record data; whether and for which purposes they do so is currently unknown. For more information please visit

Typotheque provides the web fonts for download via Amazon Web Services (AWS). Retrieval of the web fonts automatically triggers a download of the typefaces that requires a connection to Amazon. For more information please visit

The Rose Valland Institute accepts no responsibility for the content of such third-party websites and cannot be held responsible or liable for their data privacy provisions.
