1. Your application data
The Media-Saturn Group takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We therefore take technical and organizational measures to ensure that your data is protected against accidental or deliberate manipulation and unauthorized access. For example, online applications are transmitted using state-of-the-art encryption.

2. Online applications
If you decide to submit your application online using the Media-Saturn recruitment website, thank you very much! This will expedite the processing of your application. 
If you are applying for a specific vacancy, we will only save your application data after the end of the application procedure for this vacancy if necessary in order to safeguard our legitimate interests or with your consent (see Section 4). The same applies to unsolicited applications once we have established whether there are any vacancies matching your qualifications and the type of position you are seeking.

3. Other application formats
If you apply by post or email, your application data will be entered into our applicant management system and used by our HR departments. Your documents will be scanned or uploaded onto the system. Your original documents will subsequently be returned to you. This may happen before the end of the application procedure, which should not be construed as indicating that your application has been accepted or rejected. 
Your data will be saved on our applicant management system in the same way as set out for online applications (see Section 2). 

4. Storage of your application data for future vacancies 
If we cannot currently find a suitable vacancy for you but, based on your profile, believe that your application could be relevant for future vacancies or other divisions or companies in the Media-Saturn Group, your data will be saved on our applicant management system for twelve months (as long as you have expressly agreed to the storage and use of your data in your application). Apart from the company you have applied to, this applicant management system can also be accessed by other companies in the Media-Saturn Group (see Section 6).
We recommend that you agree to the storage and use of your application data on our applicant management system after the application process for the specific vacancy you have in mind. This has the advantage that your application can also be considered for future vacancies.

5. Use of your application data
Your application data will only be used for internal application procedures and for internal reporting purposes. In this regard, we are supported by d.vinci HR-Systems GmbH, Nagelsweg 37–39, 20097 Hamburg, in its capacity as a technical service provider acting exclusively according to our instructions. Your application data will not be used for any other purpose or forwarded to any other third parties.

6. Companies in the Media-Saturn Group 
The following companies can access the Media-Saturn Group’s applicant management system:
•    Media-Saturn-Holding GmbH and related management companies

7. RSS feed
On our recruitment portal, we offer additional information on careers at Media-Saturn, regardless of whether you’ve already applied for a job. Similar to a news ticker, the RSS feed contains an overview of current vacancies matching the categories you have indicated including a brief outline and a link to each job advertisement. 
The provision of data in RSS format is also referred to as an RSS feed. Once you have subscribed, the feed will keep sending you new entries automatically. To subscribe, enter the address of the feed in a suitable feed reader. Newly published content will then be loaded automatically by the feed reader to your PC (or mobile phone, PDA) at regular intervals as set by you. You can unsubscribe from a feed at any time.

8. Social plugins
We use plugins of social networks on our website such as,,,,, etc. The operators of these networks are: 
a) Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
b) Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA
c) LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA 
d) XING AG, Gänsemarkt 43, D-20354 Hamburg
e) YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA

These plugins are identified by the appropriate logos.
Whenever you visit a page of our website which contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the social network’s servers. The social network directly transfers the plugin content to your browser, which embeds the latter into the website. We therefore have no control over the data gathered by social networks with the aid of plugins. Based on our current knowledge, we hereby notify you of the following: 

The embedded plugins tell the social network that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into the social network, your visit can be assigned to your account with this social network. If you interact with plugins, for example by clicking a ‘Like’ or ‘Tweet’ button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the social network and stored by it, and the function associated with the button is activated. In the case of the ‘Apply with’ function, information on the vacancy you are applying for (title of the vacancy and data on the technical implementation of this function) will be transferred to LinkedIn or XING. Even if you are not logged into the social network, the social network may still identify and store your IP address. 

For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by the social network as well as on your rights in this respect and settings options to protect your privacy, please refer to your social network’s privacy policy: 

If you are a member of a social network and do not want it to collect data about you via our website and perhaps connect it to your account, we recommend that you log off from the social network before entering our website.
