Read here how personal data are collected and for what purposes they are processed, with what legal basis, to whom the data are passed on, for what purpose and under what conditions they are deleted again.

1. Technical and functional provision of the website.

We process personal data in order to be able to provide our website with as little technical or functional restrictions as possible and in accordance with legal requirements.

a. Logs

When you visit our website, we save certain access data, e.g. browser type and version, operating system used, the previously visited website, access date and time of the server request and the file request of the client (file name and URL). We use this data anonymously for statistical evaluations without assignment to the respective user.

The purpose of this data processing is the availability and correct presentation of the website on your device as well as the optimization of our website. In this respect, there is a legitimate interest on our part. Processing is based on Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter f of the GDPR and Article 15 of the German Telemedia Act.

b. Consent Management Tool

Our website uses the Consent Management Tool (“CMT”) Borlabs Cookie to obtain and document your consent to data processing by various services. When you open our website, you can use the CMT to submit declarations of consent for individual data processing that is stored by the CMT. For this purpose, the CMT places cookies, i.e. small text files, on your computer. These are the following cookies:
  • Name: Borlabs Cookie Provider: Borlabs – Benjamin A. Bornschein Purpose: Stores the settings of the visitors selected in the Borlabs Cookie box. Cookie name: borlabs-cookie Cookie duration: 1 year
When the website is opened again, the cookies can be used to determine which data processing and which services you have consented to or not consented to. This means that you do not have to change your cookie settings every time you visit. Of course, you can also change your selection later in the cookie settings. We use the CMT so that you can consent to various data processing operations and revoke your consent. We are legally obliged to obtain and document your consent. The legal basis for data processing by the CMT is Article 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. c GDPR. Further information on CMT and data protection at Borlabs Cookie can be found at: https://de.borlabs.io/kb/mustertext-fuer-deine-datenschutzerklaerung/.

2. Establishing contact

We collect personal data when you provide it to us. This can be e.g. data that you enter in a contact form or transmit to us in the course of contacting us. Insofar as certain input fields are marked as “mandatory information”, we use these fields to collect the data required to carry out the desired measure. Of course, you can provide us with further data if you wish.

The processing of this data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR, if this is necessary to carry out a measure requested by you. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries sent to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR).

3. Promotional activities; especially email newsletters

We can use your data for advertising purposes. We have a legitimate interest in using your data for direct marketing purposes within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR.

If you have consented to this (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR), we will also use your data to send you an email newsletter. The newsletter is technically designed so that we can understand whether you have opened it. The information obtained is used to make the newsletter even more attractive for you in the future.

You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time via the “unsubscribe” link in every email newsletter or by sending a message to the contact details given above. In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes with immediate effect for the future in writing, by fax, by email or by telephone without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. This does not affect the legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place.

The newsletter is sent by a service provider who is bound by instructions and is obliged to comply with data protection regulations and is not allowed to use the data for any other purpose.

If we place an ad for you on LinkedIn and you click on it, you can be redirected to our website. In this case, LinkedIn can understand that you clicked on our ad and were redirected to our website. In this way, LinkedIn can provide us with a statistical analysis of the effectiveness of our advertising measures on our behalf (so-called “conversion tracking”).

3. Transfer of data to third parties

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.b GDPR), and you have expressly consented to the transfer (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR) or data protection law permits such. However, only the data required in each case will be passed on.

In addition to the above-mentioned service providers, there are the following categories of service providers who are bound by instructions and are obliged to comply with data protection regulations and are not allowed to use the data for any other purpose: Service providers for the support and hosting of the website.

4. Third country transfers

Our website includes services from companies based in the USA or relationships in the USA. If you consent to data processing by one of these service providers, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities will have unrestricted access to the data processed about you. You have no legal recourse against this. Specifically, it is about these service providers:

  1. Service: All of the above Google services
    Provider: Google Ireland Limited, Dublin / Ireland
    Parent company: Google LLC, Mountain View / USA
  2. Service: Facebook Pixel
    Provider: Facebook Ireland Limited, Dublin / Ireland
    Parent company: Facebook Inc., Menlo Park / USA
  3. Service: LinkedIn Marketing Solutions
    Provider: LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Co., Dublin / Ireland
    Parent company: LinkedIn Corporation, Mountain View / USA

It cannot be ruled out that the companies or the respective parent companies and / or US authorities may gain access to personal data that is processed to provide the services.

So far, this transfer of personal data to the USA could be justified because the companies or the parent companies of the companies were certified according to the EU-US Privacy Shield, which was declared invalid by the European Court of Justice in July 2020. A transmission on the basis of the so-called standard data protection clauses according to Art. 46 Para. 2 lit. c GDPR is not possible because the high standards of the ECJ (The Court of Justice of the European Union) and the data protection supervisory authorities for additional agreements with companies in the USA cannot (yet) be met. Negotiations are in progress between the USA and the EU on a follow-up agreement to the Privacy Shield. However, when these will be completed is not foreseeable.

We therefore only use the mentioned services with your express prior consent and expressly point out the following about the risks of data transmission to one of the above-mentioned service providers:

Due to the powers of the US secret services and the legal situation in the USA, the state surveillance measures in the USA are disproportionate and, from the EU’s point of view, there is no adequate state level of data protection for personal data. In particular, Sec. 702 of the US-American Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) does not provide any restrictions on the surveillance measures of the secret services and no guarantees for non-US citizens. In addition, the Presidential Policy Directive 28 (PPD-28) does not give those affected any effective legal remedies against measures by the US authorities and does not provide for any barriers to ensuring proportionate measures. In addition, on the basis of the US Cloud Act, US authorities can demand that a US company surrender all stored data, even if this data is on servers within the EU.

5. Erasure of data

The personal data processed by us will be stored by us for as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose – in particular the processing of your request or your order – in compliance with the statutory retention periods (e.g. ten years for tax-relevant documents or tax regulations in accordance with the German Commercial Code and Fiscal Code, six years for other business letters) (Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c GDPR). Storage beyond the statutory retention periods is possible if you have consented to this in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR or the purpose of the data processing has not yet ceased.
