Definition of terms

Our privacy policy is intended to be simple and understandable for everyone. In this privacy policy, the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are generally used. The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR.

Access to and storage of information in terminal equipment

By using our website, information (e.g. IP address) may be accessed or stored (e.g. cookies) in your terminal equipment. This access or storage may involve further processing of personal data within the meaning of the GDPR.
In cases where such access to information or such storage of information is absolutely necessary for the technically error-free provision of our services, this is done on the basis of Section 25 (1) Sentence 1, (2) No. 2 TTDSG.
In cases where such a process serves other purposes (e.g. the needs-based design of our website), it will only be carried out on the basis of Section 25 (1) TTDSG with your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time for the future. The requirements of the GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) apply to the processing of your personal data.
For further information on the processing of your personal data and the relevant legal bases in this context, please refer to the following sections on the specific processing activities on our website.

Webhosting

This website is hosted by an external service provider (Host Europe). The hosting of this website takes place in Europe. Personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster's servers. This may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, website accesses and other data generated via a website.
We collect the listed data in order to be able to guarantee a smooth connection setup of the website and a technically error-free provision of our services. The processing of this data is absolutely necessary to provide you with the website. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in the correct presentation and functionality of our website in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider in accordance with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR, in which we oblige the provider to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.

Server-Logfiles

When you call up our website, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer
  • Amount of data transferred

We collect the listed data in order to be able to guarantee a smooth connection setup of the website and a technically error-free provision of our services. The processing of this data is absolutely necessary to provide you with the website. The log files are used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in the protection and functionality of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR
For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short period of time. After 14 days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user.
In addition, the data is processed anonymously for statistical purposes, if necessary. This data is never stored together with other personal data of the user, compared with other data or passed on to third parties.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your terminal device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or an automatic solution is provided by your web browser. 

Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or language settings). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or to display advertising. 
The processing of data through the use of strictly necessary cookies is based on a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR in the technically error-free provision of our services. For details on the processing purposes and legitimate interests, please refer to the explanations on the specific data processing.
The processing of personal data through the use of other cookies is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time for the future. Insofar as such cookies are used for analysis and optimization purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the framework of this data protection declaration and obtain consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. 

You can set your browser to allow you to  

  • be informed about the setting of cookies,  
  • Allow cookies only in individual cases,  
  • exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, 
  • enable automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. 

Cookie settings can be managed under the following links for the respective browsers: 

You can also manage cookies of many companies and functions used for advertising individually. To do this, use the corresponding user tools, available at www.aboutads.info/choices/ oder www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.  
Most browsers also offer a so-called "do-not-track function". When this feature is enabled, the browser tells ad networks, websites, and applications that you do not want to be tracked for behavioral advertising and the like. 

For information and instructions on how to edit this feature, depending on your browser provider, see the links below:  

Additionally, you can prevent loading of so-called scripts by default. "NoScript allows JavaScripts, Java and other plug-ins to run only on trusted domains of your choice. For information and instructions on how to edit this feature, contact your browser vendor (e.g. for Mozilla Firefox at: addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/noscript/)

Please note that if you disable cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited. 

Change cookie settings

You can revoke or change your cookie settings at any time. To do so, call up the cookie settings again via our integrated button. You can find this at any time at the bottom left of the website.

Consent Management (Cookiebot)

In order to be able to manage cookies in a data protection compliant manner, we use the software solution "Cookiebot" from the company Usercentrics A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Kogenhagen, Denmark. 
When visiting our website, an essential cookie is stored in the user's browser, in which the consent given or the withdrawal of consent is stored. This data is not shared with the provider of Borlabs Cookie.
With Cookiebot, we provide you with a so-called cookie banner, through which you can give us your consent to the use of cookies. The cookie banner informs you about the use of cookies when you first visit our website and asks for your consent to the use of cookies. Until you give your consent, all non-essential cookies that we use on our website are automatically blocked. You have the possibility to refuse unwanted cookies via the cookie banner and still continue to use the website.
In particular, the Cookiebot cookie is necessary to comply with the legal requirements of data protection law. We do not use the user data collected by the cookies to create user profiles. The legal basis of the processing is our legitimate interest to observe the rejection of cookies and/or the revocation of your consent to the use of cookies, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The collected data will be stored until you request us to delete it or delete the Borlabs cookie yourself, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected. Details on the data processing of Cookiebot Cookie can be found in the order processing agreement at www.cookiebot.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/DPA_01_2022.pdf.

The specification of an e-mail address is required for contacting us, the specification of your first and last name and your telephone number is voluntary.

Sending applications

In the linked document we hereby inform you about the processing of personal data provided by you as part of the application process and, if applicable, collected by us and your rights in this regard. 

Newsletter via Mailingwork

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website with regular information about our offers and products, we require your e-mail address as mandatory information. The provision of additional data is voluntary in order to be able to address you personally in the newsletter.
For sending the newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that we will only send you our newsletter by e-mail if you have expressly confirmed that you consent to the sending of newsletters. In the first step, you will receive an e-mail with a link that you can use to confirm that you, as the owner of the corresponding e-mail address, want to receive newsletters in the future. With the confirmation, you give us your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO that we may use your personal data for the purpose of the desired newsletter dispatch.
When registering for the newsletter, we store, in addition to the email address required for sending, the IP address through which you registered for the newsletter, as well as the date and time of registration and confirmation, in order to be able to track possible misuse at a later date. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link included in each newsletter or by sending an e-mail to the responsible person named above. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted immediately from our newsletter distribution list, unless you have expressly consented to the continued use of the data collected or the continued processing is otherwise permitted by law.
Our e-mail newsletters are sent via a technical service provider, to whom we pass on the data you provided when registering for the newsletter. We have concluded an order processing contract with our e-mail service provider, in which we oblige him to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.

Service provider: Mailingwork GmbH
Adress: Birkenweg 7, 09569 Oederan
Privacy policy: https://mailingwork.de/datenschutzerklaerung

The service provider uses the information from the newsletter registration on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For the evaluation, the sent emails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
If you wish to revoke your consent to data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter

Registration for our webinars (GotoWebinar & Webinaris)

We offer you the opportunity to register for our free webinars on our website. The webinars themselves take place via the GotoWebinar and Webinaris platform (details can be found on the privacy page of GoTo at www.goto.com/de/company/trust/privacy and for Webinaris at www.webinaris.com/datenschutzerklaerung/). GotoWebinar is operated by GoTo Technologies Ireland Unlimited Company, The Reflector 10 Hanover Quay Dublin 2, D02R573, Ireland. Webinaris is operated by the company Webinaris GmbH, Bussardstr. 5.2, 82166 Gräfelfing.
We have concluded an order processing contract with GoTo and Webinaris, in which we oblige them to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.
The integration of GotoWebinar and Webinaris serves a technically flawless execution of the webinar with professional tools. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Participation in the webinar itself is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
When you register for a free webinar, you will be redirected to a GotoWebinar or Webinaris website where you will be required to provide your email address and first and last name.

On the GotoWebinar or Webinaris website, you will enter an email address and an alias name again before you can participate in the webinar.

Since the use of GoToWebinar involves the transfer of personal data to third countries, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the third countries to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the third countries.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Through this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and only the user's IP address is transmitted to Google to establish the connection. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
We use Google Tag Manager on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. 
As there is a transfer of the IP address to Google in the USA, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the data protection level of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.

YouTube

On our website, we integrate videos from "YouTube", a social media platform of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is your consent granted for this purpose pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.
If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started by your consent, the provider "YouTube" uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from "YouTube", these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behavior. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores this data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and / or needs-based design of its websites. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of tailored advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. Please contact Google directly for this purpose.

Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, Google uses standard data protection clauses in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured by this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
Further information on data protection and data use by Google can be found on the following Google website: policies.google.com/privacy.

Google Analytics 

Our website uses Google Analytics, an internet analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". 
Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity. Google will also use this information to provide the website operator with other services related to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of the consent given by you.
We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that your IP address is only processed by Google in a shortened form.
We have concluded an order processing contract with the service provider in which we oblige him to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties. 
Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe.

The terms of use of Google Analytics and information on data protection can be accessed via the following links: 
www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html
www.google.de/intl/de/policies/
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Deletion of user-level and event-level data linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g., user ID), and advertising IDs (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID, IDFA [Apple identifier for advertisers]) occurs no later than 14 months after their collection.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website without restrictions. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and from analyzing your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Google Ads

We use "Google Ads" on our website, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). We use Google Ads for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to display ads that are relevant and interesting to you.
If you have given us your consent to do so pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR, we can use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites. This allows us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are.
These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called "AdServers". We use so-called AdServer cookies for this purpose, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by the users, can be measured. 
If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days. They are not intended to identify you personally. The following information is usually stored as analysis values for this cookie: unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed). These cookies enable Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. 
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of Google Ads. According to our knowledge, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that Google learns your IP address and stores it.
Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA. 
Further information on data use by Google, on setting and objection options, and on data protection can be found on the following Google web pages:
•    Datenschutzerklärung: policies.google.com/privacy
•    Google Website-Statistiken: services.google.com/sitestats/de.html
You can prevent the installation of cookies by deleting existing cookies and deactivating the storage of cookies in the settings of your web browser. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent. It is also possible to prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com" (https://www.google.de/settings/ads). We would like to point out that this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies. In addition, you can deactivate interest-based ads via the link optout.aboutads.info. We would like to point out that this setting will also be deleted when you delete your cookies.

LinkedIn Ads (Insight Tag)

We use the conversion tracking technology and the retargeting function of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland on our website. This enables us to play personalized ads on LinkedIn to visitors of our website. For this purpose, a cookie, LinkedIn Insight-Tag, is set in your browser with a validity of 120 days, which enables LinkedIn to recognize you if you visit this website and are logged into your LinkedIn account at the same time. LinkedIn uses this data to generate anonymous reports on the performance of the advertisements as well as information on website interaction. The information generated by the cookie is usually transferred to a server in the USA and stored there.
The legal basis for the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Since a transfer of personal data to the USA takes place, further protection mechanisms are required to ensure the level of data protection of the GDPR. To ensure this, we have agreed standard data protection clauses with the provider in accordance with Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR. These oblige the recipient of the data in the USA to process the data in accordance with the level of protection in Europe. In cases where this cannot be ensured even through this contractual extension, we endeavor to obtain additional regulations and commitments from the recipient in the USA.
You can deactivate LinkedIn Insight conversion tracking and interest-based personalized advertising by opting out at the following link: www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out. For more information about privacy at LinkedIn, please visit www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

Embed LinkedIn posts via Flockler

After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted.
