Personal data protection
Omega Design and your personal data
Omega Design is committed to protecting the personal information of our customers, partners, suppliers and visitors to our websites as effectively as possible and to using the latest technology to ensure that we continually improve the services we offer.
The term ‘personal data’ includes all data which enable or facilitate the identification of an individual. Omega Design represents and warrants its strict compliance with data protection and other applicable laws.
Omega Design’s public website can be accessed on the Internet without entering any personal data. However, in some cases, we or our partners need to obtain certain information in order to provide you with an adequate and complete service. In such cases, we will ask you for additional information.
If you wish to provide this information (e.g. name, address, email address), you will be informed how the data will be used before you submit it. During registration, we will obtain your consent to collect, store, process and transfer your personal data to third parties.
Omega Design and the use of data for a specific purpose
In general, we will use personal information that you voluntarily provide to us (for example, when you register on one of our websites, when you communicate with us by telephone, and in other activities, provided that you authorize us to do so) or your information lawfully obtained for use for a specific purpose, to respond to your inquiries, to provide you with quotes or information, to process your orders with Omega Design, or to fulfill our service obligations and perform service acts. It is also possible within an existing customer relationship
- transfer personal data to third parties (subcontractors of Omega Design) as part of the provision of services,
- use the personal data you provide to us for our purposes or for the purposes of third parties on our behalf as part of the above activities (in particular marketing and opinion polls).
- In any case, we will accept your personal declaration of intent unless you wish to provide us with personal data for the purpose of maintaining customer relationships (in particular for the purposes of opinion polls).
Omega Design will not sell your personal information to any third party or use it in any other way except to affiliates and partners for the purpose of providing services.
Any personal data collected or stored or personal data provided by Omega Design will only be used for the purposes that are notified to you in advance. Exceptions to this rule include cases where the collection, storage and processing is for the purpose of:
- protection of legal claims,
- protection from lawsuits,
- preparation, negotiation and execution of business transactions,
- the processing of an authority or court order or the effect of legislative measures,
- or if the purpose is directly linked to an assigned purpose that was previously communicated to you.
Omega Design will store your personal data for the following periods,
- that may be required to fulfil obligations and provide services within the contractual framework,
- which may be required in order to comply with statutory retention periods,
- that may be required in connection with product liability,
- that may be required to settle disputes and enforce contracts that have been agreed,
- when your registration with Omega Design is active and you have not requested to cancel it.
Omega Design and the technologies used (cookies, web signalling)
We collect information about visitors to our website in order to further improve our services and our online offerings. This enables Omega Design to better meet the requirements of its clients. This activity is carried out in a completely anonymous manner to prevent any identification of individuals.
The information about your use of the website (including your IP address) generated by Google using cookies will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Omega Design and the use and acquisition of information related to social networking environments
Omega Design uses social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ to use and obtain information. Websites and blogs operated directly by Omega Design are subject to data protection regulations.
These plug-ins of other platforms can be identified by the logo and the corresponding text styling of the platform. If you use one of these plug-ins to select one of our sites, it can create a direct link between the browser you are using and the relevant social network sites.
Because this transmission is always between the browser and the network, Omega Design has no access to or information about the data being sent. This is usually the case when you select the relevant website and are interested in a service or transfer of information about Omega Design.
If you were logged in to one of these platforms at the same time, or if you later log in to a social network, the plug-ins will be able to automatically associate information with your account. Therefore, this information will be assigned to an individual. The same process applies to using plug-ins (such as the Like button) or adding comments.
For example, if you click to activate a consent button (such as the Like button on Facebook®) or add comments, the following data may generally be transferred, depending on the social network operator:
- IP address
- Browser and operating system information
- Screen resolution
- Installed browser plug-ins, such as Adobe Flash Player
- Previously visited address, if you went to the current page via a link (referring server)
- URL of the current page
All content you post in social media environments is publicly available within Omega Design and outside of Omega Design.
For information gathering (data mining and profiling), Omega Design will periodically analyze the social networking environment to obtain information for marketing purposes based on existing contacts for data enhancement and new contacts for data mining. This is done automatically. In this way, Omega Design may obtain personal data or information from publicly available sources for which there is a history of consent or for which you have not given direct consent to collect and store data.
Omega Design takes data protection and personal rights seriously, and in such cases will inform you of the origin and category of data collected and ask for your consent to the collection, storage and processing before using such data or information. You may withdraw the consent you have given to Omega Design at any time without giving any reason.
Omega Design and data protection technology
New technologies offer users more control over their personal data. Omega Design makes every effort to provide appropriate protection wherever the nature of the data held requires it.
Omega Design and Security
Omega Design implements technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal information from accidental and unlawful alteration, deletion, loss, and unauthorized access or disclosure.
Omega Design and Licensing and Trademark and Copyright Rights
Omega Design respects its own licensing and trademark rights and the copyrights, registered trademarks, patents and proprietary rights of its customers, suppliers, partners and any unknown third parties.
Omega Design reserves the right to use personal information to assert and enforce the aforementioned rights in the event of infringement or for mere reason to believe that infringement has occurred, which would in turn confirm that there has been an actual infringement of the rights or property of Omega Design or its customers, suppliers, partners and any unknown third parties.
Omega Design also reserves the right to disclose personal information in such cases if required to do so as part of a formal request for information, to initiate legal proceedings, and to comply with legal process or a judgment or lawsuit
