This data will not be passed on to Third Parties without your explicit permission.
Data transmission via Internet (e.g.: communication via email) can be subject to security vulnerability. An absolute protection of data against data breaches from Third Parties is thus not possible.
This website uses so-called “cookies”. A cookie is a small file or string of text on the site user’s computer that is used to aid Web navigation. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain computer viruses. Most of the cookies used by this website are so-called „session cookies“. A session cookie is created by a website when that website is accessed; that type of cookie is automatically deleted by closing the Web browser. A persistent cookie is a cookie that is stored on the hard drive of the user’s computer for a period of time chosen by the website that set the cookie, usually for a number of years, unless the user deletes it manually. These persistent cookies enable us to recognize your browser at your next visit to this website.
You can set your browser so that you will be informed when cookies are set, to accept them only in specific cases or generally disable them, as well as activate automatic deletion when the browser is closed. By the deactivation of cookies, the functionality of the website may be restricted.
