Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal device; they do not contain any viruses, Trojan horses or any other malware. The cookie contains information deriving in each case in relation to the specific terminal device used. However, this does not mean that we thereby immediately gain knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies, on the one hand, serves to improve our website for you. To this end, we use so-called session cookies, in order to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These will be deleted automatically, after you leave our site.

These interests are to be deemed as legitimate within the meaning of the afore-mentioned provision. In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies are used (see above).
