(3) Use of cookies:

a) This website uses so-called transient cookies (“session cookies”), the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. This includes, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to our website.
