1. General information
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
1.1. Responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
Omega Consulting Group GmbH
Phone: +49 89 452 449 0
1.2. Length of storage
1.3. Information on the legal basis of data processing on this Website
If you have consented to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO or Article 9 para. 2 letter a DSGVO if special categories of data are processed according to Article 9 para. 1 DSGVO. In the event of express consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, data processing is also carried out on the basis of Article 49 para. 1 letter a DSGVO. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to the access to information in your terminal device (e.g. via device fingerprinting), the data processing is additionally carried out on the basis of § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. This consent can be withdrawn at any time. If your data is required for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO. Furthermore, if your data is required for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, we process it on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 letter c DSGVO. Furthermore, the data processing may be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Article 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO. Information on the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this data protection declaration.
1.4. Information on the data transfer to the USA and other third countries
Among other tools, we use those of companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
1.5. SSL- and TLS-encryption
This site uses SSL- and TLS-encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL- or TLS-encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
1.6. Withdrawal of your consent to the processing of data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation data processing remains unaffected by the revocation.
1.7. Rights of the data subject
1.7.1. Right to object to the processing of data in special cases and to direct advertising
If the data processing is based on Article 6 para. 1 letter e or f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection pursuant Article 21 para. 1 DSGVO).
If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Article 21 para. 2 DSGVO).
1.7.2. Right to object to advertising e-mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of of unsolicited advertising information, such as spam e-mails.
1.7.3. Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the DSGVO, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal shall be without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
1.7.4. Right of data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
1.7.5. Right to access, erasure and rectification
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free access to your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to rectification or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose and for further questions on the subject of personal data.
1.7.6. Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data has happened or is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

3. Acquisition and processing of personal data
Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files and do not cause any damage to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser. In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your end device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e.g. cookies for processing payment services). Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertising.
Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process, to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) (necessary cookies) are stored on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing necessary cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies and comparable recognition technologies has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Article 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG); consent can be withdrawn at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Insofar as cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the framework of this data protection declaration and, if necessary, request your consent.
3.2. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and which make it possible to analyse your user behaviour on our web site. The information generated by the cookie on our website usage is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is stored. In general, IP addresses are automatically anonymized by means of shortening to Google servers. Only in exceptional cases, IP addresses are transmitted to Google servers in the USA where they are anonymized by means of shortening. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of the website in order to analyse your user behaviour on the website, to put together reports on the website activities for the website operators and to render other services linked to the website and internet usage. Google may also transmit this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google. Google will in no case associate your IP address with other data of the Google services. You can disable the cookie installation by choosing the corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we point out that in this case, you may not be able to fully use all of the website’s functions. By using this website, you express your consent to the processing of the data collected by Google about you in the way described above and for the abovementioned purpose.
3.3. Contact form
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you have provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. We do not pass on this data without your consent. The processing of this data is based on Article 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO if your enquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of the enquiries addressed to us (Article 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO) or on your consent (Article 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO) if this has been requested; the consent can be withdrawn at any time.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, withdrawn your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
3.4. Contact by e-mail or telephone
If you contact us by e-mail or telephone, your enquiry including all resulting personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent. The processing of this data is based on Article 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO if your request is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us (Article 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO) or on your consent (Article 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO) if this has been requested; consent can be withdrawn at any time.
The data you send us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, withdrawn your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
3.5. Plugins and tools
3.5.2. Google reCAPTCHA
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereafter “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (hereafter “Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data input on this website (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human being or by an automated programme. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor on the basis of various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place. The storage and analysis of the data is based on Article 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offers from abusive automated spying and from spam. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. The consent can be withdrawn at any time.
