How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collec­ted by you pro­vi­ding it to us. This can be, for examp­le, data that you enter in a con­ta­ct form.

Other data is collec­ted auto­ma­ti­cal­ly by our IT sys­tems when you visit the web­site. This is main­ly tech­ni­cal data (e.g. Inter­net brow­ser, ope­ra­ting sys­tem or time of page view). This data is collec­ted auto­ma­ti­cal­ly as soon as you enter our website.


What do we use your data for?
Some of the data is collec­ted to ensu­re error-free pro­vi­si­on of the web­site. Other data may be used to ana­ly­ze your user behavior.


What rights do you have regar­ding your data?
You have the right to recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on about the ori­gin, reci­pi­ent and pur­po­se of your stored per­so­nal data free of char­ge at any time.

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 con­fi­den­ti­al­ly and in accordance with the sta­tu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this data pro­tec­tion declaration.

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

We would like to point out that data trans­mis­si­on on the Inter­net (e.g. when com­mu­ni­ca­ting by e‑mail) can have secu­ri­ty gaps. Com­ple­te pro­tec­tion of data against access by third par­ties is not possible.

Note on the respon­si­ble office
The respon­si­ble par­ty for data pro­ces­sing on this web­site is:

Engi­nee­ring Office Rück­ert GmbH
Dipl.-Ing. Univ. Claus Rückert

Fax +49 9123 7899–29


The con­trol­ler is the natu­ral or legal per­son who alo­ne or joint­ly with others deter­mi­nes the pur­po­ses and means of the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g. names, e‑mail addres­ses or similar).

Revo­ca­ti­on of your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing
Many data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are only pos­si­ble with your express con­sent. You can revo­ke an alrea­dy given con­sent at any time. For this pur­po­se, an infor­mal com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on by e‑mail to us is suf­fi­ci­ent. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing car­ri­ed out until the revo­ca­ti­on remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty
In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of data pro­tec­tion law, the data sub­ject has a right of appeal to the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty. The com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty in mat­ters of data pro­tec­tion law is the sta­te data pro­tec­tion com­mis­sio­ner of the federal sta­te in which our com­pa­ny is based. 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 that we pro­cess auto­ma­ti­cal­ly on the basis of your con­sent or in per­for­mance of a con­tract han­ded over to you or to a third par­ty in a com­mon, machine-readable for­mat. If you request the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­t­her respon­si­ble par­ty, this will only be done inso­far as it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on
For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site ope­ra­tor, this site uses SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on. You can reco­gni­ze an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by the fact that the address line of the brow­ser chan­ges from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock sym­bol in your brow­ser line.

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

Infor­ma­ti­on, blo­cking, dele­ti­on
Wit­hin the frame­work of the app­li­ca­ble legal pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right at any time to free infor­ma­ti­on about your stored per­so­nal data, its ori­gin and reci­pi­ent and the pur­po­se of data pro­ces­sing and, if necessa­ry, a right to cor­rec­tion, blo­cking or dele­ti­on of this data. For this pur­po­se, as well as for fur­ther ques­ti­ons on the sub­ject of per­so­nal data, you can con­ta­ct us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Objec­tion to adver­ti­sing e‑mails
We her­eby object to the use of con­ta­ct data publis­hed wit­hin the frame­work of the imprint obli­ga­ti­on to send adver­ti­sing and infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al that has not been express­ly reques­ted. The ope­ra­tors of the pages express­ly reser­ve the right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sen­ding of adver­ti­sing infor­ma­ti­on, such as spam e‑mails.


3. data collection on our website

The Inter­net pages part­ly use so-called coo­kies. Coo­kies do not cau­se any dama­ge to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain viru­ses. Coo­kies ser­ve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effec­ti­ve and safer. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and saved by your browser.


Most of the coo­kies we use are so-called “ses­si­on coo­kies”. They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after the end of your visit. Other coo­kies remain stored on your ter­mi­nal device until you dele­te them. The­se coo­kies allow us to reco­gni­ze your brow­ser on your next visit.


You can set your brow­ser so that you are infor­med about the set­ting of coo­kies and only allow coo­kies in indi­vi­du­al cases, exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies for cer­tain cases or in gene­ral and acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when clo­sing the brow­ser. If coo­kies are deac­ti­va­ted, the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site may be limited.


Coo­kies that are requi­red to car­ry out the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on pro­cess or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions that you have reques­ted (e.g. shop­ping cart func­tion) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in sto­ring coo­kies for the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free and opti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of its ser­vices. Inso­far as other coo­kies (e.g. coo­kies for ana­ly­zing your sur­fing beha­vi­or) are stored, the­se are trea­ted sepa­r­ate­ly in this data pro­tec­tion declaration.




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 are:

  • brow­ser type and version

  • Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used

  • refer­rer URL

  • Host name of the acces­sing computer

  • Time of the ser­ver request

  • IP address

This data is not mer­ged with other data sources.


The basis for data pro­ces­sing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, which per­mits the pro­ces­sing of data for the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or pre-contractual measures.




Con­ta­ct form
If you send us inqui­ries via con­ta­ct form, your data from the inqui­ry form, inclu­ding the con­ta­ct data you pro­vi­ded the­re, will be stored by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing the inqui­ry and in case of follow-up ques­ti­ons. We do not pass on this data without your consent.


The pro­ces­sing of the data ent­e­red in the con­ta­ct form is the­re­fo­re based exclu­si­ve­ly on your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revo­ke this con­sent at any time. For this pur­po­se, an infor­mal com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on by e‑mail to us is suf­fi­ci­ent. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons car­ri­ed out until the revo­ca­ti­on remains unaf­fec­ted by the revocation.


The data you ent­e­red in the con­ta­ct form will remain with us until you request us to dele­te it, revo­ke your con­sent to store it, or the pur­po­se for sto­ring the data no lon­ger app­lies (e.g. after we have com­ple­ted pro­ces­sing your request). Man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons — in par­ti­cu­lar reten­ti­on peri­ods — remain unaffected.




Proces­sing of data (cus­to­mer and con­tract data)
We collect, pro­cess and use per­so­nal data only to the extent necessa­ry for the estab­lish­ment, con­tent or modi­fi­ca­ti­on of the legal rela­ti­ons­hip (inven­to­ry data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, which per­mits the pro­ces­sing of data for the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or pre-contractual mea­su­res. We collect, pro­cess and use per­so­nal data about the use of our Inter­net pages (usa­ge data) only inso­far as this is necessa­ry to enab­le the user to use the ser­vice or to bill the user.


The collec­ted cus­to­mer data will be dele­ted after com­ple­ti­on of the order or ter­mi­na­ti­on of the busi­ness rela­ti­ons­hip. Legal reten­ti­on peri­ods remain unaffected.
