Collection and use of your data

The scope and type of collection and use of your personal data differs depending on whether you are only visiting our website to retrieve information or whether you are using any of the services we may offer. If we use other (IT) service providers for individual functions of our offer or would like to use your data for advertising purposes, we shall inform you in detail below about the respective processes (all data processing). We also state the specified criteria for the storage period and the applicable legal basis for data processing.

Informational use

For the informational use of our websites, we only collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to us, such as:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • amount of data transferred and the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Website from which the request comes
  • Browser type / version / language
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of your browser.

Storage duration:
The storage duration for these data (logs) is 30 days.

Legal basis of data processing:
The above data are technically required to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security, in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.


We process the data that you have sent us in connection with your application in order to check your suitability for the position (or other vacancies, if applicable) and to carry out the application process.

Upon receipt, your application will be reviewed by the central Human Resources department. Suitable applications will then be forwarded to the Management, Head of department, area, etc. responsible for your position in one of the companies in our group of companies. The further process will then be coordinated. Within the entire group of companies, only those persons have access to your data who need them for the proper running of our application process.

Commissioned service providers:
We have not commissioned any service providers to provide support for carrying out the application process. Your data can therefore only be viewed by the IT service providers commissioned by us if necessary and of course only to the required extent.

Storage duration:
Applicant data will be deleted after 6 months in the event of a rejection.
In the event that you have consented to further storage of your personal data, we shall include your data in our applicant pool. The data will be deleted there after 2 years.

If you have been awarded a position as part of the application process, your data will be transferred to our personnel information system.

Legal basis of data processing:
The processing of your data as part of the application process is permitted for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship, in accordance with § 26 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
If the data are required for legal prosecution after the application process has been completed, data processing can be carried out to protect legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our interest then lies in the assertion or defence of claims.
The transfer of your data to the company in our group of companies responsible for your position is in the interest of the respective company to view your application and to carry out the application process, in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Inquiries by email, post or telephone

If you contact us by email, post or telephone, your request and the personal data it contains will be processed by the authorised persons for the purpose of processing your request.

Storage duration:
We process and store the data until the purpose of the processing has been fulfilled and there are no legal storage obligations (usually 10 years of storage) or you have effectively objected to the processing.

Legal basis of data processing:
Your data will be processed on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing takes place on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in processing inquiries.

Use of cookies

We use cookies for our websites. Cookies are small text files that are sent from our web server to your browser when you visit our website and are stored on your computer for later retrieval. They serve to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective overall.

Cookies, which are absolutely necessary for the provision of the telemedia services, are stored on the basis of § 25 para. 2 No. 2 Act to regulate data protection and privacy in telecommunications and telemedia (TTDSG). We use the following cookies:

This site might use cookies to the following extent:

  1. Transient cookies (temporary use)
    Name validity purpose
    borlabs-cookie session end

    The borlabs cookie stores the consent you gave when you entered the website. If you would like to revoke this consent, simply delete the cookie in your browser. If you re-enter/reload the website, you will be asked again for your cookie consent.

Cookies can be divided into two categories:
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which can vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and for example refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.

Embedded services

For the design of our websites and the provision of additional functions, we integrate the following external services in our own interest.
By using special plugins for your browser, all services can be disabled or, more specifically, the necessary connection to the corresponding servers can be prevented. Please note, however, that the use of such tools could be associated with losses in the everyday comfort that you are used to, because many things then no longer work as you might normally expect.

Social media links

Within our websites there are links to our various social media channels, some with the corresponding logos. If you click on one of these links, your IP address will be transmitted to the operators of those various platforms. If you use one of these services and are also logged in with your specific account, information about your surfing behaviour may also be recorded by the social media operators. The transmission of your IP address to the operators of the websites accessed is technically necessary and applies to all websites.

Here you will find information about the respective provider:

The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Privacy policy:

Processing of your personal data in countries outside the EU and the EEA (third countries)

Your personal data will not be processed in countries outside the European Union and the European Economic Area, with the exception of the services declared above.

Your rights

You have the following rights towards us with regard to your personal data:
Right to information,
Right to rectification or erasure,
Right to restriction of processing,
Right to data portability.

You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by us. The supervisory authority directly responsible for us is: The State Commissioner for Data Protection Lower Saxony, Prinzenstr. 5, 30159 Hanover,

Right of objection and revocation

If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. Such a revocation affects the admissibility of the processing of your personal data after you have expressed it to us.

Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests (the legal basis is then Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), you can object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you, which we address in each case when explaining the individual data processing and functions on our websites earlier in this privacy policy. If you exercise such an objection, we ask that you explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and will either stop or adjust the data processing or show you our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

Right to object to direct mail advertising

You can, of course, object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time, for example if you receive advertising from us in the form of a newsletter, customer magazine or information material by post as part of a business relationship. If we use your data within the scope of functions of our websites for direct advertising and related data analysis, we will inform you about this data processing above in this privacy policy, including a possibility to exercise your right of revocation by technical means if necessary.

Contact options regarding your rights

You can contact us at any time to exercise your rights. The best way to do this is to use the following email address:
You are also welcome to use one of the contact options in our imprint or contact our data protection officer directly (contact details above).

Data security

We also use technical and organisational security measures to protect any personal data that are collected, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or attacks by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. The transmission of your personal data is encrypted using SSL technology (https) to prevent access by unauthorised third parties.

Communication via email

Our email systems support encrypted communication using SSL technology (TLS 1.2 incl. PFS). The transmission of your email can therefore always be encrypted. Please note, however, that the encryption also depends on the configuration of your email programme and we cannot guarantee complete data security for the transport route.

For information with a high need for confidentiality, we recommend that you send it by post.
