5.2 Cookies help in many aspects to make your visit to our website easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. Cookies are information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer's hard drive when you visit our website.

We use cookies, for example, to temporarily store your selected services and entries when you fill out a form on the website so that you do not have to repeat the entry when you call up another sub-page.

All information you submit to us is stored on servers located within Switzerland, the European Union and other parts of the world where our data centers or cloud service providers are located.
