III. collection of personal data, purpose and legal basis of processing

In principle, the website can be used without you providing us with personal data, such as your name or email address. However, we collect, process and store personal data when you use the website in the following cases

Data collected automatically when you visit the website

When you visit our website, your computer's browser automatically sends data and technical information to our website server. The following information is temporarily stored in a log file until it is automatically deleted:</p

- IP address of your computer - Name and URL of the retrieved file - Access status/HTTP status code - the browser of your computer

We collect and use this information to enable the user to establish a smooth connection to our website, to continuously improve our website and for purposes of (network) security and stability


The legal basis for temporary storage is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the aforementioned purposes. Under no circumstances will this data be used to draw conclusions about your person. This data is not stored together with other personal data.</p

We do not currently provide a contact form on our website. If you wish to contact us, we have placed a link on the website. When you click on this link, your default email program will open and you can send us an email using the email address provided there.IV. Use, disclosure and storage duration of personal data

Our website is managed by an external hosting and content delivery network (CDN), i.e. an external service provider, as a processor within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR. The technical and organizational security measures for order processing were checked before the order was placed and are checked regularly.</p

Your data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary and legally permissible or if you have previously expressly consented to a transfer or if we are legally obliged to do so.

If you provide us with personal data as part of your express consent, this data will only be used for the purpose on which the consent is based and for which you have given your prior consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.</p

The personal data collected from you will be processed and stored by us exclusively and only to the extent and for as long as is necessary for the purposes stated in this privacy policy.

Once these purposes have been fulfilled, the data is regularly deleted. However, the data will not be erased if further processing is required for a limited period of time to comply with statutory retention periods or for documentation and verification purposes, e.g. to comply with statutes of limitation.

V. Server location

VI. security, communication by e-mail

Reckmann GmbH attaches great importance to the security of its information and data processing systems and the website it operates.

The security measures we use are constantly being further developed and adapted to current technological developments.</p

Encryption technology is used on this website. Your data is transmitted exclusively in encrypted form.

If you wish to contact us by email, we would like to point out in advance that these emails can be read or changed by third parties without authorization and unnoticed during transmission unless a corresponding technical device for encryption/transport encryption is used. Whether such encryption is actually used depends in particular on the email provider you use and the technical requirements you have in place.</p

We would like to point out that we use software to filter unwanted emails (spam filter) and it may happen that emails sent by you do not reach us without you being aware of this. This spam filter can, among other things, reject e-mails if they are identified as spam e-mails due to certain characteristics. This can result in certain emails not reaching us by mistake.If you want to ensure that confidential information reaches us reliably, we therefore recommend sending it by encrypted email, post or fax. You also have the option of announcing the sending of an email by telephone and calling to check whether this email has been received.
