OMMAX thank you for visiting this page and would like to familiarise you with some important information regarding data protection.
§ 2 Overview
§ 3 Full Description
Below we would briefly like to explain how OMMAX protects personal data and what the use of our personalised services means for you. Protecting your privacy is our top priority and we work in compliance with legal data protection regulations. It is also important for us that you are aware of when and what information we collect and where necessary how we use it.

§ 5 Definition of Personal Data
Personal data is all information about the personal and factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable person. The information includes, for example, your name, email address, mailing address or telephone number. Information relating to your identity which cannot be determined without additional data is not included.
In particular, IP addresses are also considered by the supervisory authorities to be personal data. It is a technical necessity to send your IP address when accessing a website. If necessary, analysis of the data may be carried out for statistical purposes. The analysis is however anonymous and pseudonymous meaning that it is not possible to identify you via this means.
§ 6 Data Storage
If we obtain personal information from you, it will be stored on an OMMAX server and used exclusively for the purposes for which you provided this data. We maintain the generally accepted standards for the protection of personal information submitted to us both during the transmission of the data as well as once we have received it. However, as no method of online data transfer or electronic storage is 100 percent secure, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your data.
§ 7 Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data
We will only collect, process or use personal information when necessary. When obtaining quotations, information (such as for email newsletters) or making an appointment, we may ask for your name, email address, phone number or other contact information.
§ 8 Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties
§ 9 Services Providers
If necessary, we will make your information available to companies who provide services in conjunction with our business activities. This includes, but is not limited to, sending you emails on our behalf. These companies are authorised to use your personal data thus far as we deem necessary for the provision of these services.
§ 10 Disclaimer
We will also share your personal information if necessary under the following circumstances:
- if required by law for the purpose of following performance of an information injunction or a comparable legal process.
- if we assume in good faith the disclosure is required to protect our rights, your safety or the safety of others, for the investigation of fraud or in response to a legal request.
- if OMMAX is involved in a merger, acquisition or sale of all its assets or a part thereof; we will notify you via email and/or through a prominent notice on our website about changes in ownerships or the use of your personal data as well as informing you about the options available regarding your personal data.
- to a third party with your prior consent.
§ 11 Use of Website Analytic Tools (Web Tracking)
Like most website operators, we also use analytic tools in the form of tracking software to learn about the number and frequency of visits to our website. According to § 15 para. 3 TMG (German Telemedia Act) service providers may create user profiles for the purposes of advertising, market research and for tailoring the website, provided that these profiles are not combined with information about the bearer of the pseudonym.
§ 12 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics tool from Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’ and web beacons. The information generated whilst using this website will be by default transmitted to and stored by Google on their servers in the USA. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google in the countries of the European Union or another member state in accordance with the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the whole IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of this website’s operator to analyse your usage of the website and to create reports on website activity. In addition, Google uses this information to provide other services to the website operator relating to website activity and internet usage. Within the terms of Google Analytics, the IP address sent from your browser will be combined with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser accordingly.

§ 14 Facebook Plugins
We use social plugins from the site facebook.com such as the ’like‘ button. These plugins are offered and operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA and are clearly marked with the Facebook logo. When you request a page on our website containing a social plugin, your browser establishes a connection with the Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which accordingly integrates the content into our website. We have no influence over the content of the plugin.
If you do not want Facebook to connect to your Facebook account on our website, please log off Facebook before visiting our site. Alternatively it is also possible to block Facebook’s social plugins with an add-on for your browser. One such example is Facebook Blocker: http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/.
§ 15 Google+1
We use the +1 button from the Google+ social network. The button is identifiable by the +1 symbol on a white or coloured background. If you visit one of our websites containing such a button, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Google servers. The contents of the +1 button is transmitted directly in the browser and integrated into our website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Google collects with this button.
The Google server is informed of which of our websites you are currently visiting. Google logs your browser history when displaying a +1 button for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes for a period of up to two weeks. Further analysis of your visit to our website with a +1 button will not take place.
By clicking the +1 button whilst you are logged in to Google+, Google acquires information about the URL you recommended from your Google Profile, your IP address and other browser-related information so that your +1 recommendation can be saved and made public. Your +1 recommendations can be shown as references together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results, on your Google profile or elsewhere online on websites and in advertisements.
If you are a Google+ member or are logged on to Google and do not want Google to collect data about your visit to our website or link this information to your profile, you must first log out of Google or Google+ before visiting our website.
Please find under the following link more information on the purpose, scope and use of your data by Google as well as your rights with respect to your profile settings and the privacy policies of Google: https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.
