Collection, processing and use of your data
You can visit our Website without disclosing your identity. When you access our Website, we only store access data, namely the name of your Internet service provider, the page from which you visit us, the date and time of access, the name of the file accessed, and the IP address assigned to you. These data are evaluated exclusively for the improvement of our offer and do not allow any conclusion on your person.
Data that disclose your identity are only collected if you voluntarily provide them to us in the context of contacting us via our contact form or by e-mail. Without your separate consent, we use the data you provide exclusively for the purpose for which you provided it to us. We use data that you provide to us as part of your contact request exclusively to process your contact request. This establishes our legitimate interest, which is the legal basis for processing the data (Art. 6 para. 1 point f GDPR). If the contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, this is an additional legal basis for the processing (Art. 6 para. 1 point b GDPR).
If your consent is required for the use of certain cookies, we will only use these cookies if you have given your consent. Information on whether consent is required for the use of a cookie can be found in the following overview of the cookies used on this Website.
We store your consent in the form of a cookie (“opt-in cookie”) on your device in order to determine whether you have already given consent when you call up the Website again. The opt-in cookie has a limited validity period of 12 months.
Cookies that are absolutely necessary cannot be deactivated. However, you can generally deactivate these cookies in your browser at any time. In this case, the functionality of our Website may be limited.
The legal basis for this processing of your data is, in the case of necessary cookies, our legitimate interest in providing our Website (Art. 6 para. 1 point f GDPR). If you have given us your consent to the use of certain cookies, this is the legal basis for the processing of your data (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time for the future.
Overview of the cookies used
This Website uses Borlabs Cookie, which sets a technically necessary cookie (borlabs-cookie) to store your cookie consents. The borlabs-cookie stores the consents you gave when you accessed the Website. If you wish to revoke these consents, simply delete the cookie in your browser. When you re-enter/reload the Website, you will be asked again for your cookie consent.
The legal basis for the use of the borlabs-cookie is our legitimate interest in providing our Website and ensuring that data is not processed without consent required from you (Art. 6 para. 1 point f GDPR). The retention period is 12 months.
If you have given us your consent, we will use Google Maps on our website to display our location and to create directions. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.
To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when you access our website.
If you call up the Google Maps component integrated into our website, Google stores a cookie on your device via your Internet browser. In order to display our location and provide directions, your user settings and data are processed. Through the connection to Google established in this way, Google can determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the directions are to be transmitted. Here we cannot exclude that Google uses servers in the USA.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data for the use of Google Maps is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR). The retention period of the data is 6 months.
If you do not consent to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Details on this can be found above under the item “Cookies”.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, by activating IP anonymization on this Website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the European Union or within the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the Website on our behalf, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to Website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. The retention period of the cookie is 24 months.

Your personal data will be stored by us to the extent and for as long as necessary for the processing purposes pursued by us. For example, if you use the functions provided by us on our Website, e.g. make inquiries to us or wish to receive product information, we store your data collected in this context until the completion or termination of the respective user relationship.

If the legal requirements are met, you have the right to request information from us about personal data or data processing relating to you (Art. 15 GDPR), correction, deletion and restriction of personal data or data processing relating to you (Art. 16 to Art. 18 GDPR) and transfer of personal data relating to you (Art. 20 GDPR). If legal, contractual, tax law or commercial law retention obligations or other legally anchored reasons contradict the deletion, only the blocking of your data may be carried out instead of the deletion.
In addition, you have the right to object to data processing based on a “legitimate interest” of the controller pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 point f GDPR if the legal requirements pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR are met.
