The protection of your privacy is important to RCPE. We strictly observe legal provisions and regulations applicable to us when processing your personal data (GDPR, DSG 2018, TKG 2003). We take responsible precautions to prevent unauthorized access to, manipulation and theft of your data. Within this document, we inform you about the most important aspects of data storage and processing within the framework of our website and business activity.

In Contact With Us
When you contact us personally, via telephone or email, any data provided by you are stored and processed to answer enquiries, fulfill any requests or provide any services within a potential business relationship. RCPE does not forward this information to any third parties without your consent.

We use cookies to enhance the user friendliness of our website. Cookies help to improve your experience with our website by helping you resume where you left off and your preferences. Cookies are small files that are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and they can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script that is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next (see

Some of these cookies are necessary, while others help us to improve your experience by providing insights into how the site is being used. Necessary cookies enable core functionality. The website cannot function properly without these cookies, and can only be disabled by changing your browser preferences. Analytical cookies help us to improve our website by collecting and reporting information on its usage.

These cookies may be session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies will be deleted when you close the browser, or shortly after having logged out. Session cookies store a session ID. With this, different requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session so that your computer can be recognized when you return to our website. Persistent cookies are stored on your device for a certain period of time, and then automatically deleted after that period of time, specified for each individual cookie, has lapsed.

Google Analytics
Our Website uses Google Analytics, a service of Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“). For this Google uses cookies that enable an analysis of the user behavior (e.g. pages viewed). Collected and generated information is transferred to a server in the USA and will be stored for 26 months. We have signed a standard data processor contract with Google.

Google may transfer data to third parties who process data on behalf of Google. Google will not correlate your ip address with other data and information of google. In order to prevent Google from setting any cookie and therefore collecting any data, you can adjust your browser settings (click here for more information).

Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, Framework. On behalf of RCPE, Google will use the information obtained from cookies to evaluate the use of the web pages by you, to compile reports on web page activity and to provide other services related to web page activity and internet usage to RCPE. This is our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

RCPE uses Google’s services by enabling the IP anonymization feature. This leads to Google storing the user’s IP address only in a shortened format, resulting in anonymization / masking. The anonymization or masking of the IP takes place after the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network, but before any storage or processing of the data takes place. For more information, see: IP Anonymization in Google Analytics.
