Nordwand Group may process the personal data (e.g. name, gender, address, e-mail address, telephone or fax number) that the user explicitly and actively provides to Nordwand Group. This also applies if the user participates in events (online or in person) of the Nordwand Group. Also, Nordwand Group's web server automatically records details of the user's visit (e.g. IP address, browser type and version, operating system used, originating website, pages accessed, date, duration of visit).

Cookies

The websites of Nordwand Group use cookies, which are saved on the user's computer. These enable Nordwand Group to retrace the user's visit and to save their preferences if they switch pages or revisit the website at a later date.

Cookies particularly serve the following purposes:

  • save the user's preferred language and country settings
  • perform a statistical analysis of the number of users and of their usage habits
  • improve the loading speed of the individual pages

The user can control cookie specifications via their browser settings. The relevant browser options and instructions on use can generally be found in the browser manual or help file. If the user rejects, blocks or deactivates cookies, this may restrict the availability of the services offered via the website. In addition, parts of the website may not work correctly under certain circumstances.

Web analysis

Nordwand Group analyses how its websites are used with the help of third-party analysis tools, such as Google Analytics (hereinafter «analysis service providers»). Nordwand Group assumes no responsibility or liability for any data processed by analysis service providers.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics, a web-based analysis service by Google Inc. (hereinafter «Google»), uses cookies, which are saved on the user's computer. The information generated by the cookie concerning their visit is usually sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If Nordwand Group activates IP anonymization for this website, Google shortens the user's IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other partner states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and anonymized there. Google evaluates the information that has been saved on behalf of Google for the purpose of compiling reports on the website's usage and in order to provide other associated services for Nordwand Group. Google may combine the IP address transmitted from the user's browser by Google Analytics with other data that has been collected.
