§ 4 Definition of personal data
Personal data is any information about the personal and actual circumstances of a particular or identifiable person. This information includes, for example, your name, e-mail address, postal address or telephone number. Information on the basis of which your identity cannot be determined without additional data is not included.
In the opinion of the supervisory authorities, IP addresses are, in particular, data that refer to personal data. The transmission of the IP address when accessing a website is a technical necessity. If necessary, the data is analysed for statistical purposes in anonymous and pseudonymised form. This means that it is not possible to identify you personally through this.
In principle, our data protection declaration should be simple and understandable for everyone. For this reason, our data protection declaration generally uses the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR.
§ 5 Data processing by visiting our website
When you visit our website, it is technically necessary that data is transmitted to our web server via your internet browser. The following data is recorded during a running connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:
- Visited domain
- The date and time of the request
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- The web browser, system language, operating system and device type used
- IP address of the requesting computer
- The amount of data transferred
We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection to the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file serves the purpose of evaluating system security and stability, as well as providing administrative functions. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 a. GDPR.
§ 6 Storage of data
If we receive personal data from you, OMMAX will store it on a server and use it exclusively for the purposes for which you have transmitted it to us. All the servers used by OMMAX are located within the European Union. We comply with legal regulations both during transmission and after receipt, taking into account the state of the art and suitable technical and organisational measures to protect personal information and data transmitted to us. However, no transmission method over the internet or electronic storage method is one hundred percent secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee absolute safety.
§ 7 Newsletter
You can register on our website to receive our newsletter. We need your e-mail address for this. In addition, we must check whether you are actually the owner of the e-mail address provided and would like to receive the newsletter, taking into account the relevant legal regulations. We therefore collect information that makes such a check possible. The data collected in this context is used to send and receive the newsletter. It has no other purpose and will not be passed on to third parties. Apart from the information required for sending the newsletter, no other data is collected from our site. As the sending and receiving of the newsletter is dependent on your consent, you can revoke this consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time without giving reasons. Please use the "Unsubscribe-Link", which is provided in the newsletter.
The newsletter program provider is:
25 First Street, 2nd Floor

§ 8 Use of website analytics tools (web tracking)
Like most website operators, we also use analytics tools in the form of tracking software to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our website. According to § 15 Abs. 3 TMG (German Telemedia Act) the service provider may create user profiles for purposes of advertising, market research and for the demand-oriented design of the website, provided that these are not combined with data about the owner of the pseudonym.
§ 9 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, an internet analysis service provided by Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies" and web beacons. The information generated in relation to the use of this website is transferred by default to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google will reduce the IP address of users within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which may exclude any personal relationship. Google Inc., based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. If you have given your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO, the processing on this website carried out for website analysis purposes.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly. However, we must point out that in this case you will not be able to use all functions of this website without restrictions. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and analysing your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

§ 10 Visual Website Optimizer
Within our online offer, based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer [within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO]) the service Visual Website Optimizer (an offer of Wingify Software Private Limited, 404, Gopal Heights, Netaji Subhash Place, Pitam Pura, Delhi 110034, India) is used. Visual Website Optimizer allows us to track the effect of different changes on a website (e.g. changes in input fields, design, etc.) within the framework of so-called "A/B testing", "click tracking" and "heat maps". A/B tests are used to improve the usability and performance of the OMMAX website for our users. For example, users are presented with different versions of a website or its elements, such as input forms, on which the placement of content or labels of navigation elements may differ. Then, based on the behavior of users, e.g., staying on the website longer or interacting with the elements more frequently, it can be determined which of these websites or elements are more likely to meet users' needs. "Click tracking" allows to overview users' movements while using the website. Since the results of these tests are more accurate when users' interactions can be tracked over time (e.g., being able to see if a user likes to return), cookies are usually stored on users' computers for these testing purposes. "Heatmaps" are mouse movements of users that are summarized to form an overall picture, which can be used, for example, to identify which website elements are preferred and which website elements users prefer less. Cookies are stored on users' devices only for these test purposes. Only anonymized user data is processed.
§ 11 Facebook Plug-Ins
We use so-called social plug-ins of the facebook.com network, such as the "Like" button. These plug-ins are offered and operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, and clearly marked with the Facebook logo. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a server in the USA. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "I like" button or making a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
The described data processing processes take place in accordance with art. 6 par. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of Facebook's legitimate interests in the insertion of personalised advertising in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website and to design the service in line with your needs.
When you access a page that contains such a plug-in, your browser connects to Facebook's servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and displayed accordingly in our environment. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plug-in and therefore informs users according to their level of knowledge: http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=17512
Facebook may be able to track and associate your visit to our respective pages with a Facebook account if you are registered with Facebook or have recently visited a page on Facebook or with Facebook content. If you actively use plug-ins (e.g. press the like button), the corresponding information is also transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook without us having any influence on this. For more detailed information on the type, purpose and scope as well as the further processing and use of your data by Facebook, please refer to the data protection information on Facebook. There you will also learn more about your rights in this regard and the setting options for the protection of your privacy.
If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our pages with your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook account. You can also object to the loading of the Facebook plugins and thus the data processing procedures described above with add-ons for your browser in the future, e.g. with the script blocker "NoScript" (https://noscript.net/).
