At Ray Service we recognize that you, our customers, partners and others who visit the Ray Service website, value your privacy.

By means of this notification, we hereby inform you on the processing of your personal data.
Personal data controller and contact data
The personal data controller is Ray Service, a.s., Commercial registration no.: 277 56 203, registered office at Huštěnovská 2022, 686 03 Staré Město, Czech Republic, incorporated in the Commercial Register kept by the Regional Court in Brno, section B, file 5165 (hereinafter “Ray Service” or “we”).

On 25 May 2018, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, publicly known as GDPR, entered into force. It regulates the obligations of the controller of personal data (Ray Service), but also the rights that the subjects of personal data (you as a customer, visitor, etc.) have. These rights and obligations relate to personal data which means any information through which you can be directly or indirectly identified (e.g. your name, surname, birthdate, email address, etc.). In some cases, we use other companies to handle personal data – they are helping in processing and other operations. These are the so-called processors of personal data.
Processed data and the scope of processing
In order to be able to effectively carry out our business and communicate with you, we often need to obtain some personal data from you. These are, for example:
- your name and surname,
- phone number and email,
- CV, job title, etc.
The information we request from you varies depending on the position from which you are providing them. They will be different if you are acting towards us as a business partner, as a visitor of our company or as a job seeker. We do not process any sensitive data, such as health, race or biometric ones.
Reason and purpose and legal basis for the processing of personal data
The main reason for processing your personal data is, in particular, the efficient performance of our business activities and communication with you. We process your personal data only to the extent necessary to achieve such purposes and we regularly check whether they are still relevant and up to date.
Under the rules of the GDPR, if the controller wishes to process personal data, he must always process it on the grounds of a legal basis. At Ray Service, when processing personal data, we always verify the existence of a legal basis. This can be, for example, the performance of a contract if your personal data are necessary for e.g. concluding a contract or fulfilling a contractual relationship, or our legitimate interest in e.g. processing CVs of individual job seekers or sending newsletters to our customers. If this legal reason ceases to exist and there is no other, your personal data will be deleted.
In case you refuse to provide us with data for any reason, we may not be able to continue to effectively communicate with you or cooperate in other ways.
Processors and recipients of personal data
For maximum efficiency of our activities, but also for the security of your personal data, we cooperate with some processors and recipients in the following areas:
- providers of information systems, databases and IT services,
- providers of marketing and communication services,
- intermediaries in sending newsletters,
- contractual partners, etc.
If we are about to transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU, each transfer is based on an adequacy decision or appropriate safeguards to ensure maximum security.
Period of the processing of personal data
The period of processing your personal data varies depending on the purpose for which we process it. However, they are always processed for the period required for the contract, period for which you consent lasts, or which is specified in applicable legal provisions, or our internal regulation.

Rheinmetall and Ray Service sign LYNX IFV strategic co-operation agreement
Rheinmetall, the manufacturer of the LYNX infantry fighting vehicle in contention for the Czech Republic’s ongoing IFV renewal programme, has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Czech company Ray Service for current and future LYNX projects. The decade-long cooperation between the German and Czech companies has entered into a new phase expected to secure up to 50 jobs over the next five years.
The strategic cooperation agreement ensures region-wide support from Ray Service for Rheinmetall’s innovative LYNX IFV platform. Ray Service contributes to LYNX programmes through the supply of vitally important cable harnesses, electromechanical assemblies, and external lighting systems, as well as the supply of third-party equipment including Beth-El’s NBC system, Kidde Deugra’s fire extinguishing system, and tracks and road wheels from Defence Service Tracks.
Based in Staré Město, Ray Service started working with Rheinmetall in 2011. The company will support Rheinmetall through local content approaches in the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia.
“Taking our cooperation with Rheinmetall to the next level is fantastic news for Ray Service,” says Jakub Gabriel, Managing Director of Ray Service. “Working on the incredible LYNX platform has been an extremely rewarding experience, providing us with excellent challenges and opportunities for knowledge-sharing and research. Our new strategic cooperation with Rheinmetall for domestic and export projects will secure up to 50 jobs over the coming years while improving our R&D capabilities and opening up global export opportunities”.
Rheinmetall’s LYNX is a leading contender for the renewal of the Czech Republic’s IFV fleet with 210 next-generation vehicles. A fully modular platform, the LYNX can switch quickly between various battlefield and peace-keeping functions thanks to its high inherent degree of adaptability and flexibility. In 2020, the LYNX was chosen by the Hungarian Armed Forces for a similar IFV fleet renewal programme.
“LYNX is not only a lethal, modular vehicle for the modern battlefield and therefore the right choice for the Army, but also a huge opportunity for domestic industrial development and economic growth,” says Oliver Mittelsdorf, Senior Vice President Sales at Rheinmetall Defence. “Over the past 10 years, Ray Service have been an unfailingly reliable partner, delivering outstanding results time and time again. Their commitment to innovation makes them the perfect supplier for the LYNX, and we look forward to deepening our relationship through this new strategic cooperation agreement.”
Rheinmetall’s commitment to the localization of production includes a pledge to use Czech components for more 40% of the LYNX KF41 if it wins the IFV tender. Other Czech LYNX suppliers would include MEOPTA, Česká zbrojovka and VOP CZ. The LYNX’s crucial Lance 2.0 turret system would meanwhile be built at Rheinmetall’s production plant in the Ústí nad Labem region, where it employs more than a thousand people.
Headquartered in Düsseldorf, the publicly traded Rheinmetall AG is a high-tech enterprise dedicated to the twin modern imperatives of mobility and security. Founded in 1889, the group today consists of two operational components: Rheinmetall Defence and Rheinmetall Automotive. One of the world’s leading suppliers of military systems and equipment, Rheinmetall’s Defence arm comprises three divisions: Vehicle Systems, Electronic Solutions and Weapon and Ammunition. The group’s 26,000-strong global workforce generated sales last year of $6.9 billion.
