Data privacy

NORDWEST Handel AG thanks you for your interest in our company, products and services. The protection of your privacy when using our website is important to us. We are therefore happy to provide you with the information below on the collection of anonymous and personal data.

Anonymous data collection
Visiting the NORDWEST website can lead to access information (date, time, page viewed) being stored on the server. This data is not personal; it is anonymous and is used solely for statistical purposes. It is not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes. NORDWEST expressly points out that the transmission of data over the Internet (e.g. communication via e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities and complete protection against access by third parties cannot be ensured.

We only use cookies to make it easier for you to use our web pages. Some pages allow personal data to be stored in cookies if you have expressly permitted this in advance, e.g. so you do not have to enter access details again. In principle, you can still access all information on our web pages when you have deactivated cookies in your Internet browser. However, not accepting any cookies can result in functional limitations with respect to our offers.

Collection and processing of personal data
We only store and process personal data if you share this information with us, e.g. when you fill in a contact form or register for personalised services. You will be informed of the intended use and – where necessary – asked for your consent for this data to be stored and processed. It will only be passed on to our associated service providers, e.g. to send you the required written information. Our service providers are obliged to observe data secrecy and confidentiality. If you visit our careers website and either use the services there or submit an online application, your data will also be passed on to other companies within NORDWEST Handel as necessary. Your data will not be passed on to other third parties.

Rights of those affected
We will write to you on request to inform you whether we have personal data about you stored, and what that data is. Your rights in relation to reporting, blocking and deletion as expressly stated in the German Data Protection Act are protected. You can revoke your approval submitted on the corresponding page regarding the storage of your personal data at any time by means of a brief notification.

Questions and suggestions regarding data protection
If you have any questions or suggestions relating to data protection, please contact the data protection officer at NORDWEST Handel AG, 58135 Hagen, Germany, or e-mail: datenschutznordwestcom.

Our website uses Piwik, which is a web analytics service. Piwik uses "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and used by us to analyse use of the website. This involves the usage information generated by the cookie (including your shortened IP address) being sent to our server and stored for usage analytics purposes to help us with optimisation of our website. Your IP address will be immediately made anonymous during this process so that you remain anonymous to us as a user. The information produced by the cookie regarding your use of this website is not passed on to third parties. You can apply a corresponding setting in your browser software to prevent the use of cookies; however, this may mean that you cannot use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
If you do not agree to the storage and analysis of this data from your visit, you can object to this storage and usage at any time by clicking as follows. An "opt-out cookie" will then be stored in your browser, which means that Piwik will not collect any session data.
