To leave the destination permissions and ownership alone and let newly
copied files adopt the defaults, simply omit the options -pog (or if
you're using -a, replace it with -rlt) and pass --chmod=ugo=rwX, as
mentioned under --perms in the current man page.
It looks like DeltaCopy contains rsync 2.6.6, which is too old to
recognize the --chmod option, so if you're pushing from the Windows
machine, you'll need to stuff that option in an --rsync-path:
rsync --rsync-path='rsync --chmod=ugo=rwX' ARGS...

This is probably separate from the permission issue. Please pass -vvii
and post your rsync command line and the resulting output, and I'll see
what is going on.
