At present, we do not use such cookies, but may do so, if we increase our offering of personalized functions on our Web site. Cookies per se do not collect personal data, but allow us to assign a visitor to his/her respective user profile. As already explained, this user profile is stored under a pseudonym, hence privacy of the client's data is ensured even if such cookies are used.
