Google Fonts is a typeface visualization service provided by Google LLC or by Google Ireland Limited that allows your website/app to incorporate content of this kind on its pages. It provides an interactive web directory and APIs enabling users to include fonts via CSS.
Yes, you do.
Users of Google Fonts are bound by Google’s generic API terms of service; if you are using a Google Fonts font embedded on your site, it may track user behavior on your website.
If both of the above apply, you should add both service providers.
Google Fonts does not install cookies, but if this service is used via API requests, some end-user’s data (e.g. IP address) are collected, stored and may be used for analytical purposes. Furthermore, it might be possible for Google to track end-users via the user’s browser fingerprint cross-referenced with other Google services they use.
Even if they are not strictly speaking cookies, you have to inform users of the use of any trackers or any other technology that enables the tracking of users on your website (and obtain the consent to use them).
So, in this case, yes you do.
