2. General notes and mandatory information


Data protection


The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as with this data protection declaration.


If you use this web site, different personal data will be collected. Personal data is data with which you can be identified personally. The present data protection declaration explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose that is done.


We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. in the case of communication by e-mail) can show security gaps. Complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.


Reference to the responsible body


The responsible body for data processing on this web site is:


Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing. Heiko Rittel
RS Rittel GmbH
Stollenstraße 21
45966 Gladbeck


Phone: +49 (0) 2043 9734-0


The responsible body is the natural person or legal entity which alone or jointly with others decides upon the purposes and means of processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).


Revocation of your consent for the processing of your data


Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent already granted at any time. For that an informal communication by e-mail to us shall suffice. The legality of the data processing carried out up to revocation shall remain unaffected by the revocation.


Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority


In the event of violations of data protection law, the person affected shall have a right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the regional data protection officer of the federal state in which our company has its registered office.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transmission of data to a different person responsible this will be done only as far as technically feasible.


SSL or TLS encryption


This page uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential contents, such as, for example, purchase orders or inquiries that you send to us as page operators. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line in the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.


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


Objection to advertising mails


The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation for sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby objected to.

4. Data collection on our web site




The Internet sites partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies are used for making our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are deposited on your computer and that your browser saves.


Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session-cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser at the next visit.


You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate automatic deletion of the cookies when the browser is closed. In the event of deactivation of cookies, the functionality of this website can be restricted.


Cookies that are necessary for performance of the electronic communication process or for making available certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are saved on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR. The web site operator has a justified interest in the saving of cookies for the technically fault-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are saved, these are dealt with separately in this data protection declaration.


Server log files


The provider of the pages collects and saves information automatically in so-called server log-files that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server inquiry
  • IP address


No merging of this data with other data sources will be carried out.


The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter. f GDPR that permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.


Contact form


If you let us have inquiries by means of a contact form, your details from the inquiry form including the contact data provided there by you will be saved by us for the purpose of the processing of the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.


The processing of the data entered on the contact form is hence carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR). You can revoke that consent at any time. For that, an informal communication by e-mail to us shall suffice. The legality of the data processing operations up to revocation shall not be affected by revocation.


The data entered by you on the contact form remains in our possession until you request us to delete it, you revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose of data storage is no longer applicable (e.g. after the processing of your inquiry has been concluded). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.


5. Analysis tools and advertising


Google reCAPTCHA





We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on our web sites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).


With reCAPTCHA, it is to be checked whether the entry of data on our web sites (e.g. in a contact form) is carried out by a human being or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the visitor to the web site on the basis of different features. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the visitor to the web site enters the web site. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various items of information (e.g. IP address, web site visitor’s length of stay on the web site or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is passed on to Google.


The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Visitors to the web site do not have their attention drawn to the fact that an analysis is being carried out.


Data processing is performed based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR. The web site operator has a justified interest in protecting its web offers against improper automated spying out and SPAM.


Further information on Google reCAPTCHA as well as the Google’s data protection declaration can be seen from the following links: und


6. Plugins and tools


Google Maps


This site uses, via an API, the map service Google Maps. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.


To use the functions of Google Maps it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is as a rule transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.


The use of Google Maps takes place in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and of easy findability of the places shown on the web site. This is a justified interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR.
