For the sake of better readability of the texts, we have chosen either the male form or the female form of personal or person-related nouns. This does not, under any circumstances, imply any degrading of the other sex than that used. Therefore, when we speak of customers or associates, for example, in the male form, we also mean, naturally, female customers or associates. The content of our website addresses women and men to an equal extent and both are requested to view the content as such.
Thank you for your understanding.
