The webpages sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses.

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. The information collected is: browser type and browser version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer and time of server request. These data cannot be associated with a specific individual. These data are not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.
