Nordwand Group processes personal data about the user when the user:

  • Visits Nordwand Group websites
  • Submits his or her personal data to Nordwand Group for job offers or as a job search mandate

In selected cases, personal data is processed when Nordwand Group records telephone calls from users, whether to comply with its own legal obligations or for training or quality assurance purposes.

On one hand, Nordwand Group processes 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 Nordwand Group events (online or in person). Secondly, Nordwand Group's web server automatically records details of the user's visit (e.g. IP address, browser type and version, operating system used, website of origin, pages viewed, date, length of visit).


Nordwand Group websites use cookies that are stored on the user's computer. This allows Nordwand Group to track the user's visit as well as store their preferences when they move between pages or revisit the website.

Cookies serve the following purposes in particular:

  • Storage of the language and country settings selected by the user
  • Statistical analysis of the number of users and their usage habits
  • Improvement of the loading speed of individual pages

The user can control the behaviour of cookies by means of his browser settings. The corresponding options of the browser and instructions on how to use them can usually be found in the manual or help file of the browser. If the user rejects, blocks or deactivates cookies, this may limit the availability of the services offered via the website. In addition, parts of the websites may no longer function properly.

Web Analytics

Nordwand Group uses third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics (hereinafter generally referred to as "Analytics Providers") to analyse the use of the Websites. Nordwand Group assumes no responsibility or liability for any data processing by the providers of the tools.

Web Analytics

Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (hereinafter "Google"), uses cookies that are stored on the user's computer. The information generated by the cookie about the user's visit is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If Nordwand Group activates IP anonymisation for this website, Google will truncate the user's IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address then be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and anonymised there. On behalf of Nordwand Group, Google evaluates the stored information in order to compile reports on the use of the website and to provide other related services for Nordwand Group. Google may combine the IP address transmitted by the user's browser as part of Google Analytics with other data collected.
