2. Hosting and Content Delivery Networks (CDN)
Cloudflare
We use the “Cloudflare” service provided by Cloudflare Inc., 101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94107,
USA. (hereinafter referred to as “Cloudflare”).
Cloudflare offers a content delivery network with DNS that is available worldwide. As a result, the
information transfer that occurs between your browser and our website is technically routed via
Cloudflare’s network. This enables Cloudflare to analyze data transactions between your browser and our
website and to work as a filter between our servers and potentially malicious data traffic from the Internet.
In this context, Cloudflare may also use cookies or other technologies deployed to recognize Internet users,
which shall, however, only be used for the herein described purpose.
The use of Cloudflare is based on our legitimate interest in a provision of our website offerings that is as
error free and secure as possible (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR).
Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European
Commission. Details can be found here:

3. General information and mandatory information
Data protection

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence,
we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data
protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.
Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises
data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we
collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the
information is collected.
We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications)
may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.
Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)
The data processing controller on this website is:
Omnitron Griese GmbH
Mühlstraße 20
D-65388 Schlangenbad
Geschäftsführer: Reinhardt Robert Griese
Phone: +49(0)6129/5053-0
E-mail: info(at)omnitron.de
The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes
decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail
addresses, etc.).
Storage duration
Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain
with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for
deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally
permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the
latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.
Designation of a data protection officer as mandated by law
We have appointed a data protection officer for our company.
Phone: +49 (0) 6144/402198
E-mail: omnitron@dsbok.de
Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries
Among other things, tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data protection
perspective non-secure non-EU countries, are integrated into our website. If these tools are active, your
personal data may potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We
must point out that in these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be
guaranteed. For instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security
agencies and you as the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it
cannot be ruled out that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and permanently
archive your personal data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also
revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness
of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct
advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE
THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON
GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED
ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS
BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE
WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO
PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA,
THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE
PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION
PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING,
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR
THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE
EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL
DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES
(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory
agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the
place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other
administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your
consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine
readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done
only if it is technically feasible.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or
inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption
program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser
switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information about, rectification and eradication of data
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand
information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the
processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have
questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to
contact us at any time.
Right to demand processing restrictions
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is
concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in
the following cases:
In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need
some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to
demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to
demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal
entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead
of its eradication.
If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be
weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the
right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving
– may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to
protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by
the European Union or a member state of the EU.
Rejection of unsolicited e-mails
We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory
information to be provided in our Site Notice to send us promotional and information material that we have
not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal
action in the event of the unsolicited sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM messages.

4. Recording of data on this website
Cookies
Our websites and pages use what the industry refers to as “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that do not
cause any damage to your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session
cookies) or they are permanently archived on your device (permanent cookies). Session cookies are
automatically deleted once you terminate your visit. Permanent cookies remain archived on your device
until you actively delete them, or they are automatically eradicated by your web browser.
In some cases, it is possible that third-party cookies are stored on your device once you enter our site (thirdparty
cookies). These cookies enable you or us to take advantage of certain services offered by the third
party (e.g., cookies for the processing of payment services).
Cookies have a variety of functions. Many cookies are technically essential since certain website functions
would not work in the absence of the cookies (e.g., the shopping cart function or the display of videos). The
purpose of other cookies may be the analysis of user patterns or the display of promotional messages.
Cookies, which are required for the performance of electronic communication transactions (required
cookies) or for the provision of certain functions you want to use (functional cookies, e.g., for the shopping
cart function) or those that are necessary for the optimization of the website (e.g., cookies that provide
measurable insights into the web audience), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless a
different legal basis is cited. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to
ensure the technically error free and optimized provision of the operator’s services. If your consent to the
storage of the cookies has been requested, the respective cookies are stored exclusively on the basis of the
consent obtained (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR); this consent may be revoked at any time.
You have the option to set up your browser in such a manner that you will be notified any time cookies are
placed and to permit the acceptance of cookies only in specific cases. You may also exclude the acceptance of
cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the delete function for the automatic eradication of cookies
when the browser closes. If cookies are deactivated, the functions of this website may be limited.
In the event that third-party cookies are used or if cookies are used for analytical purposes, we will
separately notify you in conjunction with this Data Protection Policy and, if applicable, ask for your consent.
Server log files
The provider of this website and its pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server
log files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. The information comprises:
The type and version of browser used
The used operating system
Referrer URL
The hostname of the accessing computer
The time of the server inquiry
The IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest
in the technically error free depiction and the optimization of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this,
server log files must be recorded.
Contact form
If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any
contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event
that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a
contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based
on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or
on your agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested.
The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the
data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being
archived no longer exists (e.g., after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without
prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods.
Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name,
request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these
data on without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a
contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are
processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to us (Art.
6(1)(f) GDPR) or on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if it has been obtained.
The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your
consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request).
Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

5. Analysis tools and advertising
Matomo (formerly called Piwik)
This website uses the open-source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that make it
possible to recognize the user across multiple pages with the aim of analyzing the user patterns (e.g. cookies
or device fingerprinting). The information recorded by Matomo about the use of this website will be stored
on our server. Prior to archiving, the IP address will first be anonymized.
Through Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data on the use of our website-by-website visitors. This
enables us to find out, for instance, when which page views occurred and from which region they came. In
addition, we collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser, and operating system used) and can
measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in
the analysis of user patterns, in order to optimize the operator’s web offerings and advertising. If a
corresponding agreement has been requested (e.g. an agreement to the storage of cookies), the processing
takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time.
Hosting
We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed
on.

6. Plug-ins and Tools
Google Web Fonts (local embedding)
This website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google to ensure the uniform use of fonts on this site.
These Google fonts are locally installed so that a connection to Google’s servers will not be established in
conjunction with this application.
For more information on Google Web Fonts, please follow this link:
developers.google.com/fonts/faq and consult Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under:
policies.google.com/privacy.
Google Maps
This website uses the mapping service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”),
Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To enable the use of the Google Maps features, your IP address must be stored. As a rule, this information is
transferred to one of Google’s servers in the United States, where it is archived. The operator of this website
has no control over the data transfer. In case Google Maps has been activated, Google has the option to use
Google web fonts for the purpose of the uniform depiction of fonts. When you access Google Maps, your
browser will load the required web fonts into your browser cache, to correctly display text and fonts.
We use Google Maps to present our online content in an appealing manner and to make the locations
disclosed on our website easy to find. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. If
a respective declaration of consent has been obtained, the data shall be processed exclusively on the basis of
Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. This declaration of consent may be revoked at any time.
Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European
Commission. Details can be found here:
privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ and
privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/sccs/.
For more information on the handling of user data, please review Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under:
policies.google.com/privacy.

7. Custom Services
Job Applications

We offer website visitors the opportunity to submit job applications to us (e.g., via e-mail, via postal services
on by submitting the online job application form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, purpose and use of
the personal data collected from you in conjunction with the application process. We assure you that the
collection, processing and use of your data will occur in compliance with the applicable data privacy rights
and all other statutory provisions and that your data will always be treated as strictly confidential.
Scope and purpose of the collection of data
If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g., contact and
communications data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), if they are required to
make a decision concerning the establishment or an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the
aforementioned are § 26 New GDPR according to German Law (Negotiation of an Employment
Relationship), Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (General Contract Negotiations) and – provided you have given us your
consent – Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your
personal data will only be shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your job application.
If your job application should result in your recruitment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the
grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment
relationship in our data processing system.
Data Archiving Period
If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the
right to retain the data you have submitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) for up
to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application).
Afterwards the data will be deleted, and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage
serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required
after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g., due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only
take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
Longer storage may also take place if you have given your agreement (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if statutory
data retention requirements preclude the deletion.

8. Our social media appearances
Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly available profiles in social networks. The individual social networks we use can be
found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively if
you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or banner ads).
When you visit our social media pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are
triggered. In detail:
If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social
media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may
also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In
this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP
address.
Using the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in
which their preferences and interests are stored. This way you can see interest-based advertising inside and
outside of your social media presence. If you have an account with the social network, interest-based
advertising can be displayed on any device you are logged in to or have logged in to.
Please also note that we cannot retrace all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on
the provider, additional processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social
media portals. Details can be found in the terms of use and privacy policy of the respective social media
portals.
Legal basis
Our social media appearances should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a
legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social
networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g.
consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Responsibility and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media
platform, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can in principle
protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and
complaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).
Please note that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full
influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are determined by the
company policy of the respective provider.
Storage time
The data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as
you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses.
Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular,
retention periods - remain unaffected.
We have no control over the storage duration of your data that are stored by the social network operators
for their own purposes. For details, please contact the social network operators directly (e.g. in their privacy
policy, see below).
