Christian, not really, this what you sent is the general TOS of Google
accounts and I am afraid they have very little or nothing to do with their
Fonts. Once again:
Google Fonts are released under Apache License, version 2.0 and/org SIL Open
Font License, 1.1, both are equivalent to GPL and there for a reason.
There's no dual license when it comes to things like that, it's either
"open-source" or not :) So Syahir yes you can. Period.
