In case you visit our Website from a shared computer or a computer in an internet café, we strongly recommend that you log off after each session.

This does not necessarily mean that no advertisements will be shown to you. It simply means that these advertisements will not be personalized for you by means of cookies, web beacons or similar technologies.
