Sharing your personal information

We do not sell or rent your personal information to any third party. However, we do share your personal information with related trusted third parties that work on our behalf to deliver our services to you (such as our dealer network so that they can deliver or prepare for collection a product you have ordered).

  • Wix our website provider.

  • Google Analytics and Google Ad Manager, for targeted advertising.

  • Social Media Platforms (Facebook and Instagram), for targeted advertising.

We do not authorise third parties to use or disclose your personal information except for the purpose of providing the service we request from them. All third parties, which we disclose your personal information to, are subject to obligations under the New Zealand Privacy Act 2020 to protect your information from unauthorised use or disclosure.

We do not share your personal information with any overseas providers which are not subject to the New Zealand Privacy Act. If we were to do so, we would obtain prior authorisation from you before we disclose it to any such third parties.


We retain personal information only for as long as we need it in order to continue to provide you with our service(s), maintain the security of our websites or as required by law.


We take all reasonable steps to ensure the personal information we collect is protected against loss, unauthorised access and disclosure or any other misuse. We have an information and communications technology policy in place to ensure staff manage and protect Horwin NZ data and devices. Access to our systems and platforms is controlled, through role-based access, and all access is logged and audited.


We use cookies and web beacons to help us understand how visitors engage with our website and services. These technologies allow us to:

  • Improve our website (for example, identify and promote popular content); and

  • Provide you with more targeted information where appropriate.


Important: You should not use a “remember my login” feature on a browser unless you are the only person who has access to the browser. Never enable this feature on a public access computer as this could allow other people to access your personal information.

Third party cookies and other technologies: We use third party cookies and other technologies for marketing and to gather website analytics. This includes:

  • Remarketing and emails: we use third party cookies – such as Google Analytics and Marketo cookies – to keep track of the content you’re interested in and remarket it to you when you leave our site (as a result, you may see ads from Horwin NZ when you visit other websites).

  • Impression reporting: we use web beacons to estimate the number of users that have viewed and clicked on our advertisements (as a result, we’re able to gauge the success of a campaign).

  • Demographics and interest reporting: we use cookies and web beacons to get an overview of our readership broken down by age, gender and interests such as home appliances or technology (as a result, we can provide you with relevant information, services and features and also gauge the popularity of our content).

You can also ask your browser to delete or block third party cookies: simply search online for “cookies” + the name of your internet browser (for example, “Google Chrome”) for step-by-step instructions.
