3. General Information and Mandatory Information

Data Protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

Various personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how, and for what purpose this happens.

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. A casual email making this request is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities

If there are any breaches of data protection legislation, the affected person may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which our company is headquartered. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link:

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our imprint if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

Opposition to promotional emails

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.

4. Data Collection on Our Website

Cookies and Borlabs Cookie Management

Our website uses cookies to enhance user friendliness. These small text files are stored by your browser and are harmless.

We use the Borlabs Cookie management tool, which allows you to control your cookie preferences individually. You can set your preferences in the Borlabs Cookie tool regarding which types of cookies you allow:

  • Essential Cookies: Necessary for the basic functionality of the website and stored according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
  • Statistical Cookies: Help us understand how visitors interact with the website by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
  • Marketing Cookies: Used to deliver relevant advertising and marketing campaigns to visitors. These cookies track visitors across websites.
  • Cookies for External Media: Allow the display of content provided by external providers such as YouTube or Google Maps.

You can configure your browser to be informed about the setting of cookies and to allow cookies only on a case-by-case basis, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website. Please note that if you do not accept cookies for external media, content from third-party providers may not display correctly.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These data include:

  • Type of browser and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address (IP addresses are fully anonymized)

These data are not combined with other data sources and are deleted after 7 days. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

When you send us inquiries via contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, are stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your consent.

The processing of the data entered into the contact form is thus based solely on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to the storage, or the purpose for data storage lapses (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions, in particular retention periods, remain unaffected.


If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and do not transmit it to third parties.

The processing of data entered into the newsletter subscription form is based solely on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke the consent you have given for storing the data, the email address, and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example through the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data deposited with us for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after the newsletter is canceled. Data stored for other purposes with us remain unaffected.

5. Plugins and Tools - Borlabs Content Blocker

Social Media Plugins

We integrate plugins of social networks such as Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok, and others on our website. These plugins enable you to interact with these networks and share our content there.

To protect your data and your privacy, we use the Borlabs Content Blocker to prevent the automatic transmission of data to the operators of social networks. Therefore, the social media plugins are initially blocked and are not active until you explicitly consent.

When you grant your consent in the Borlabs Cookie tool, the social media plugins are activated and can transmit information such as your IP address or your interactions with the plugin to the respective social networks.

Please note that we have no control over the extent of data that the operators of the social networks collect once the plugins are activated. Further information on data processing by the social networks can be found in the privacy policies of the respective providers.

WordPress Plugins

On our website, we use various WordPress plugins to provide additional functions and services. Examples include:

  • Contact form plugins for improved communication.
  • SEO optimization plugins to enhance our online visibility.
  • Security plugins to protect our website and your data.
  • Appointment booking tools.

Similar to our social media plugins, we also use the Borlabs Content Blocker for these WordPress plugins. This means that certain functions of the plugins are only activated when you give your consent. In this way, we prevent data from being transmitted to third parties without your knowledge or consent.

By giving your consent in the Borlabs Cookie settings, these plugins can be activated, potentially capturing data such as your IP address or your interactions with the plugins.

We emphasize that we have no control over the extent of data processing that can occur through the activation of the plugins. We recommend reviewing the privacy policies of these providers for detailed information.
