How do we collect your data?
Your data may be acquired by you directly providing them to us. This can, for example, be data you enter into a contact form.
Other data are automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. This includes primarily technical data (e.g. web browser, operating system, time of page retrieval). This data collection occurs automatically as soon as you visit our website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data are used to ensure fault-free delivery of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your behaviour as a user.
We collect, store and process your personal data when you log in on our website. Beyond this, as a rule, we only collect, store and process your personal data when you have indicated your consent and either are already a customer or wish to become a customer; this is exclusively for one of the following purposes:
What rights do you have with respect to your data?
You have the right, at any time and free of charge, to be informed on the source, recipient and purpose of any of your personal data that we have stored. Furthermore, you have the right to request that your data are corrected, blocked or deleted. For this purpose and for any other questions relating to data protection, you may contact us at any time using the address provided in the legal information section of this website. You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.
Withdrawal of consent and erasure of data
The collection of data to provide the website and the storage of data in logfiles is essential to the operation of the website. The user therefore does not have the opportunity to withdraw consent.
You may withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. Contact us by email at any time to withdraw consent to the storage of your personal data. In such a case, however, the conversation cannot be continued.
Your surfing behaviour may be statistically analysed when you visit our website. This takes place primarily with cookies and so-called analytical tools. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is normally anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You may refuse consent to this analysis or prevent it by not using specific tools. Detailed information may be found in the following Data Protection Statement.
You may refuse consent to this analysis. We will inform you about options for refusing or withdrawing consent in this Data Protection Statement.
The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and with the provisions of this Data Protection Statement.
When you visit this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data that may be used to identify you personally. This Data Protection Statement explains the data that we collect and what we use them for. It also explains how this is done and to what purpose.
We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission on the internet (e.g. in email communication) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data from third party access is not possible.
The Controller for data processing on this website is:
Walter Ritter GmbH & Co. KG
Telephone: 040 / 236996-0
The Controller is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purpose and means for processing personal data (e.g. name, email address, etc.).
Many data processing events are only possible with your express consent. You may withdraw consent that you have already granted at any time. An informal email to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing that took place before the withdrawal of consent is not affected by the withdrawal.
For security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential data, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL and/or TLS encryption. An encrypted connection may be identified by the fact that the address line in the web browser changes from “http://” to “https://” accompanied by a lock symbol.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be intercepted and read by third parties.
Within the framework of applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain access to information on your stored personal data, the origin and recipient of such data, the purpose of data processing and, where appropriate, the rectification, blocking and erasure of such data. For this purpose and for any other questions relating to personal data, you may contact us at any time using the address provided in the legal information section of this website.

The web pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our service more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your web browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit to our website. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser next time you visit the site.
You may configure your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set and asked to approve of each individual cookie, so that cookies are automatically refused for specific cases or in general, and so that cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be impaired.
Cookies required for the provision of electronic communication or specific functions you have opted to use (e.g. shopping cart functionality) are stored on the basis of GDPR Article 6 (1) (f). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to facilitate the technically correct and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies are stored (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour), these are addressed specifically within this Data Protection Statement.
The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server logfiles. This information is automatically transmitted to us by your web browser. The following information is transmitted:
These data are not combined with other data sources.

If you send us an enquiry via our contact form, we save the information you provide on the form, including your contact data, for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass this data on without your consent.
The processing of the data provided on the contact form therefore takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (GDPR Article 6 (1) (a)). You may withdraw this consent at any time. An informal email to us is sufficient. The legality of data processing that took place before the withdrawal of consent is not affected by the withdrawal.
The data you provided on the contact form remain with us until such time as you request erasure, you withdraw your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage is no longer valid (e.g. once processing of your enquiry has been completed). Binding legal provisions, in particular legally mandated retention periods, remain unaffected.

Only in exceptional circumstances is the full IP address then sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyse your usage of the website, to generate reports on website activity for the website operator, and to provide further services associated with the usage of the website and the internet.
