On XING, the User may install (“add”), deinstall (“remove”) and use software products (“XING Applications”) which may be provided by or in cooperation with third parties (“Application Providers”).
XING Applications that have been added by the User may retrieve personal data of the User including the User’s contact list from the XING database. In the event the User removes a XING Application, that XING Application may not further retrieve any personal data of the User.
Please note the following details regarding XING Applications which are provided by or in cooperation with Application Providers:
XING Applications which are provided by or in cooperation with Application Providers may exclusively retrieve the User’s non-private profile data and the User’s list of contacts from the XING database. The User’s private contact details (such as e-mail addresses or phone numbers) are not made available to such XING Applications and Application Providers.
Please note that Application Providers may determine the way in which the XING Applications they provide use and process the retrieved data. Please refer to the terms and policies of the Application Providers for detailed information on the use and processing of personal data.
XING Applications that a User has added may transfer this specific User’s personal data to the Application Providers. Personal data of other Users who have not installed the respective XING Applications may not be transferred to the Application Providers by the XING Applications.
Application Providers are required to agree to restrictions on access, storage and use of personal data. However, while XING AG has undertaken contractual and technical steps to restrict possible misuse of such information by such Application Providers, XING AG cannot and does not guarantee that all Application Providers will abide by such restrictions and agreements.
