BORGERS welcomes your visit to our website and your interest in our company.
BORGERS takes the protection of personal data very seriously. For this reason we would like to inform you about which data and information we store and how we use them. The processing of the data is carried out in accordance with the provisions of the law of that state in which the authority responsible for the data processing is registered.
Information is automatically stored when our website is visited. By default, the web servers in operation store:
- date and time,
- the name of your internet service provider,
- the website, from which you are visiting us,
- the websites you are visiting here,
- your IP address (in anonymized form, if applicable),
- the operating system used and
- the browser used.
There is no person-related utilization of the date, even if they allow identification under certain circumstances. If we analyse the data, this will happen in an anonymous format for the purpose of improving the appeal, contents and functionality of our website. As far as data are passed on to external service providers (web hosts), we will ensure by technical and organizational measures that the data protection provisions are observed. The data are processed in compliance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit (f) DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interests in the improvement of our online presence, like the safety, functionality and stability of our website. Data are not passed on or used otherwise. In case of concrete evidence of illegal utilization of our website we reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively.
Collection and processing of personal information
Personal data are only collected if you make them available to us on your own accord, e.g. in the context of a registration, by filling in forms, sending emails or for the initiation or implementation of a contract. It is evident from the respective contact form, which data are being collected. If you register as a user on the data exchange or supplier portal of our website, the necessary user ID is also stored. The data are processed in compliance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit (b) DSGVO for the initiation or implementation of a contract or in our legitimate interest in compliance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit (f) DSGVO for responding to your request.
Purpose limitation of use and transfer of personal data
The data and their contents remain with our company, our associated companies and our provider. Your personal data will only be used for the purpose for which you provided them to us. Furthermore, no personal data will be submitted to third parties. A transfer to government institutions, authorities or third parties will solely be carried out within the framework of national or European laws and provisions. Our employees are sworn to secrecy and bound to protect shared personal information.
Rights of the persons affected
In accordance with the DSGVO, you have comprehensive rights with regard to the processing of your personal data. On request, Borgers will inform you in writing, whether and which personal data we have stored about you. For this purpose an email to the data protection officer containing your complete contact details is sufficient (see below for contact details). If incorrect information has been stored despite our efforts to achieve data correctness and up-to-dateness, we will correct this after corresponding notification in writing. You are entitled
- to demand disclosure of your personal data processed by us, in compliance with Art. 15 DSGVO. In particular, you can demand disclosure of the purposes of processing, the category of the personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data were or are disclosed, the planned storage period, the origin of your data, provided they were not collected by us, as well as of the existence of automated decision making including profiling and, if necessary, significant information regarding their details;
- to demand the immediate rectification of incorrect or the completion of your personal data stored by us in compliance with Art. 16 DSGVO;
- to demand the deletion of your personal data stored by us in compliance with Art. 17 DSGVO. A deletion of your personal data cannot take place if there is a statutory duty to retain the data due to national or European laws and provisions;
- to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data in compliance with Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the correctness of the data is disputed by you, the processing is illegal but you decline the deletion, and we no longer need the data but you require them for assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or you have filed an objection against the processing in compliance with Art. 21 DSGVO;
- to receive your personal data, which you have made available to us, in a structured, current and machine-readable format or demand the forwarding to another person responsible, in compliance with Art. 20 DSGVO;

Insofar as your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests in compliance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit (f) DSGVO, you have the right to appeal against the processing of your personal data in compliance with Art. 21 DSGVO, as far as there are reasons resulting from your particular situation or the appeal is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of appeal, which will be implemented by us without stating a particular situation.
We store personal data for that amount of time which is necessary to process your request or carry out a service requested by you or to which you have given your consent, provided that there are no contrary legal obligations, as in case of ongoing court proceedings, for example.

On our website we use Google Maps (API) by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service for the displaying of interactive maps to present geographical information visually. By using this service our location is displayed, thus making a possible journey easier.
Information about your use of our website (e.g. your IP address) is already sent to Google’s server in the United States and stored there, when calling up those subpages containing the map of Google Maps. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account, via which you are logged in, or whether there is no user account. When you are logged in at Google, your data are allocated directly to your account. If you do not want the allocation to your profile at Google, you have to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles, if necessary, and analyses them. The collection, storage and analysis are carried out in compliance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 DSGVO on the basis of legitimate interest of Google for the insertion of customized advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of Google websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you have to contact Google for the exercise of this right.
Google LLC with their headquarters in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection Convention “Privacy Shield”, which guaranteed the compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
Links to other websites
Furthermore, plugins of the video portal Vimeo of Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York 10011, USA, are integrated on our website. The underlying promotional purpose is to be considered as legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Paragraph 1lit. (f) DSGVO. Every time you call up a page on our website which offers one or more Vimeo video clips, a direct connection is established between your browser and a server of Vimeo in the USA. In the process, information about your visit and your IP address are stored there. Through interaction with the Vimeo plugins (e.g. clicking the start button) this information is also transmitted to Vimeo and stored there. You can find the data protection declaration for Vimeo with further information about the collection and utilization of your data by Vimeo in the privacy statement of Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/privacy).
If you have a Vimeo user account and do not want that Vimeo collects data about you via this website and links them to your membership data stored at Vimeo, you have to log out at Vimeo before visiting this website.

Use of Facebook insights
When operating this Facebook page, Facebook provides us with so-called page insights. You can find information on these page insights under de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights. The processing of insights data is carried out on the basis of an agreement about the common processing of personal data, which we have made with Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook” hereafter).
The processing of personal data created by insights is supposed to enable us to obtain statistics, which Facebook creates on the basis of the visits on our Facebook page. This it will be possible for us to gain knowledge of the profiles of those visitors who appreciate our Facebook page or use our applications in order to be able to provide them with relevant contents or develop functions which could be of even greater interest to them.
In particular, we are able to obtain demographic and geographic data about our target group, which will tell us, for instance, where special advertising campaigns need to be carried out or events to be organized and which will broadly enable us to design our range of information as focused as possible.
The visitor statistics prepared by Facebook will be transferred to us exclusively in an anonymous format.
We also use the Facebook site to communicate with Facebook users or prospective customers and provide information about services, supply and activities. If we obtain personal data in this context, their processing exclusively takes place for the purpose of the respective communication and interaction.
Legal basis of the processing
At the same time our legitimate interest in a data processing on the basis of Art. 6 Paragraph 1lit. (f) DSGVO also comes within the area of the above mentioned purposes.
Processing of data outside the EU
There is the possibility that the data of users can also be processed outside the area of the European Union by Facebook Inc. with its registered office in the USA. However, Facebook Inc. have submitted themselves to the terms of the EU-US-Privacy-Shield and thus commit themselves to comply with the European data protection regulations.
Possibility to appeal
Among the settings for advertising preferences (https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences) users of Facebook can influence to what extent their user behaviour may be recorded when visiting our Facebook page. Further options are provided by the Facebook settings (https://www.facebook.com/settings) or the form for the right of appeal (https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/367438723733209).
In the case of information enquiries and the assertion of user rights, we would like to point out that the most effective way to assert those is to Facebook directly. Should you require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
