Share functions (Facebook, XING, LinkedIn and WhatsApp)

We would like to draw your attention to our presence on various professional and non-professional networks. We have linked these platforms and messaging services on our web site with icons. These icons are not social plug-ins, which is why no (personal) data are transmitted to these networks until you have made an active decision. To use the "Share" function, you must be logged on to the respective network and actively click on the link. Only then will your data be transmitted to the respective provider.

The legal basis for data processing when using the "Share" function is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest on our part lies in the fact that we want to enable our users to participate in an active exchange on the networks with the "Share" function. The user must actively log on to the network and then additionally click on the link before the data are transmitted.

The following data are transmitted when "sharing" content:

  • Internet address
  • Date and time when the web site was opened or the "Share" icon was clicked on
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • IP address
  • The content you share

The shared content (job postings) can then also be viewed by other users on the same network, depending on the data protection settings you have made for your own account on the various networks. If you are already logged on to the network when you click on the "Share" icon, its provider will also be able to determine your user name and, if applicable, your real name from the afore-mentioned data. These data may be processed by the provider also in countries outside the European Union. We have no influence on the scope, type and purpose of the data processing by the provider. Please refer to the respective privacy policies / terms of use of the networks.

 

Duration of storage and routine deletion of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the time necessary to fulfil the purpose of the processing or where provided for by law or regulation. After discontinuation or fulfilment of the purpose, your personal data will be deleted or blocked. In the event of blocking, deletion will take place as soon as legal or contractual retention periods do not conflict with this.

 

Recipients of personal data

We can transfer your personal data to the following recipients for the afore-mentioned purposes in compliance with the applicable laws while ensuring the highest level of security:

Affiliated companies - MMS is an internationally active group of companies. If necessary, MMS will transfer your personal data to its affiliates for the purposes set out in this data privacy policy. 

Service providers - Various service providers help us to run our overall business. They may be, for example, IT service providers who host the web site careers.mediamarktsaturn.com and/or make sure that our web site runs smoothly. They may come into contact with your personal data when fulfilling their contractual obligations.

We demand that these recipients ensure the security of your personal data and process them in compliance with the applicable law. We share or transfer your personal data only to the extent necessary and permitted by a legal basis. Furthermore, we make sure that we have concluded the necessary contractual agreements to protect your personal data.

 

Data transfer to third countries

In individual cases, we may transfer your personal data to other countries outside the European Economic Area (referred to as third countries), where different data protection standards may apply than at your place of residence. Your data may be subject to foreign laws there and may be made available to the local governments, courts and law enforcement and regulatory authorities.

We will transfer personal data to service providers including processors or other third parties outside the European Economic Area (EEA) only if the third country has been confirmed by the EU Commission to have an appropriate level of data protection, you have consented to the transfer of your data, the transfer of your data is mandatory due to a contract with you or appropriate data protection guarantees (e.g. binding internal company data protection regulations or an agreement of the EU Commission's standard contractual clauses) are in place (Art. 44 ff GDPR).

 

Data security

The security of your personal data is of top priority to us. We therefore implement technical and organisational measures to protect your data to effectively prevent loss or misuse by third parties. In particular our employees who process personal data are bound by and must comply with data secrecy. To protect your personal data, they are transmitted in encrypted form; we use SSL=Secure Socket Layer, for example, to communicate in your Internet browser. You can tell it by the lock symbol that your browser displays for an SSL connection. To ensure the permanent protection of your data, the technical security measures are checked regularly and, if necessary, adapted to the state of the art. These principles also apply to companies that process and use data on our behalf and according to our instructions.
