Typekit is a service that provides you with access to a library of fonts.
What information is collected by the Typekit service?
In order to provide the Typekit service, Adobe may collect information about the fonts being served to your website. The information is used for the purposes of billing and compliance, and may include the following:
Kit type (string “configurable” or “dynamic”)
Account ID (identifies the customer the kit is from)
Service providing the fonts (e.g., Typekit or Edge Web Fonts)
Application requesting the fonts (e.g., Adobe Muse)
Server serving the fonts (e.g., Typekit servers or Enterprise CDN)
Hostname of page loading the fonts
The amount of time it takes the web browser to download the fonts
The amount of time it takes from the web browser downloading the fonts until the fonts are applied
Whether or not an ad blocker is installed to help identify whether the presence of an ad blocker affects accurate pageview tracking
Site visitor IP address, OS, and browser version
What does Adobe do with information that is collected?
Adobe uses the information received from third party websites using Typekit fonts to provision the Typekit service and diagnose delivery or download problems. This information is also used to pay and fulfill our contracts with the font foundries whose fonts are utilized.
Does Typekit share my personal information?
Adobe engages with font foundries to provide you with fonts through the Typekit service. Additionally, these foundries may offer fonts for sale in the Typekit Marketplace via the Typekit service. In this instance, Adobe will provide the font foundries with information such as your contact information and a purchase summary of the licensed font(s) for the purpose of enabling the font foundries to verify that you have a valid license to the font(s) acquired in the Typekit Marketplace.
