Data processing for the provision of the website & the creation of log files.

Each time our website is accessed, information is temporarily processed and stored in so-called log files or log files, which may allow identification. Log files contain the following data and information:
– IP address of the requesting computer

– Date and time of access to the website

– Request method & requested files

– message whether the request was successful (“status code”)

– the operating system used by the accessing system and information about the browser type and version used (“user agent”).
The temporary data processing is technically absolutely necessary for the course of a website visit in order to be able to deliver the website at all. Further storage of the log files takes place for control and verification purposes, in order to be able to check the functionality of the website and the security of the information technology systems retrospectively. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f DSGVO.

The log files are stored for 7 days, unless concrete indications point to an abusive / illegal use and require a subsequent review.

Cookies are small files that are automatically created and stored in the terminal device (web browser). Cookies can store information about your preferred settings.
When you first visit our website, the consent manager “Borlabs” stores a cookie (“borlabs-cookie”): This cookie remembers whether or not you consent to the reloading of external content (Google Maps). If you have made a selection in the Consent Manager, or reject or agree, the cookie stores this information. Otherwise, you would have to make a selection again each time you change pages or navigate our website. The legal basis for the data processing by this cookie is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f DSGVO.
By using the external services (e.g. chat system) based on your consent (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter a DSGVO), visitor data is processed by third-party cookies. These external services are not a prerequisite for the use of our website.

If you contact us (e.g. by e-mail or contact form), we will process your information to the extent necessary to respond to your contact request and any requested action. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter b DSGVO.
Insofar as your contact request is neither necessary for the performance of a contract with us nor for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter f DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing of your data. Our legitimate interest is to finally process the received message and to contact you externally.
If your contact is based on consent, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter a DSGVO is the legal basis.
We store your message until the processing is completed. Longer storage only takes place if we are entitled or obliged to do so in individual cases.

Application procedure
We process your application data for the purpose of assessing your suitability, qualifications and professional performance for the position for which you are applying. In the application process, we will use all the information you provide to progress your application and to check whether we can offer you a job with us. The data we process in the process depends on what data you provide to us. We will only use your contact data to contact you and inform you about the progress of the application process. We will only use other information contained in the application documents to determine your suitability for the position to be filled. Furthermore, we process data collected during the job interview. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter b in conjunction with Article 88 DSGVO, Section 26 BDSG.

If your application documents contain special categories of personal data, e.g. information about health, religious beliefs or ethnic origin, we also base our processing on Article 9 (2) (b) DSGVO, Section 26 (3) sentence 1 BDSG due to our legal obligations as an employer and the associated protection of your fundamental rights. In addition, we also process your information on the basis of Article 9 (2) (h) DSGVO, Section 22 (1) (1) (b) BDSG in order to be able to assess the fitness for work of potential employees and, if necessary, to take occupational health and preventive health measures.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the event that an employment relationship, training relationship, internship or other service relationship is established following the application process, the data will initially continue to be stored and transferred to the personnel file. Otherwise, the application process ends for you with the receipt of a rejection. In the event of a rejection, we will store your data for six months as soon as you have received the rejection decision, unless longer storage is necessary for the defense of legal claims.
The provision of personal data is necessary for the legality of the selection procedure to be carried out. The absence of relevant personal data in the application documents may result in non-inclusion in the allocation of the vacant position.

If you wish, we can include you in a subsequent selection procedure after your application has been rejected. In order to include you in our application pool, we require your consent (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter a DSGVO). Your consent is voluntary and can be revoked at any time.
