When you access our websites via telecommunication services, communication-related information (e.g. internet protocol address) and utilization-related information (e.g. on the start and duration of utilization as well as on the telecommunication services used by you) are automatically generated by technical means. These might allow inference with regard to personal data. As far as a collection, processing and use of your communication- and utilization-related information is absolutely necessary, it is subject to the legal regulations on data protection. When you visit one of our websites, it is possible that we file information in the form of a "cookie" on your computer that will automatically recognize it on the occasion of your next visit.
