Data Protection


We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of the RITTER Stone GmbH.

A use of the internet pages of the RITTER Stone GmbH is basically possible without any indication of personal data.

Legal basis of processing

The processing of personal data occurs in the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This occurs, for example, in processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration. The processing is thus based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. In addition, our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, so that the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO.


Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company concludes a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Before the data subject has been provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what would be the consequence of the failure to provide the personal data.


Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.




Natural stone offers infinite value and status through its formation over millions of years and its unique character, color, texture and durability.

Inclusions and layers of stone tell stories that instill respect; natural stone represents creation and transience like no other building material.

Great respect and the ultimate feel for stone are required when it comes to choosing the right stone for your project. Specialist knowledge and decades of experience, which are often only passed on internally, are in demand and priceless. Even if design and sales already have an idea, they cannot be left alone here.

Which stone, from which quarry, is suitable for realizing the architect’s design. A deep knowledge that the client can trust. Transparency and partnership relieve the burden on those responsible in advance and ensure the desired effectiveness, which is the basis for the added value of the buildings.
