Data security

Protecting your personal data is very important to us. For this reason, the EMAG Group is committed to complying with the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany that pertain to data security and protection.

"A trust-based realtionship with our employees is fundamental to me. I am happy to contribute my specialized knowledge and my reliability to my work as a payroll officer."

We guarantee your data will be protected and laws will be obeyed.

The EMAG Group processes personal data in accordance with legal requirements. When personal data are transmitted to Group companies outside Germany, the data protection regulations of the country in which the information will be processed will apply as well. If we transmit your data to a country whose regulations offer less protection to your data than German law does, our EMAG data protection policies will ensure the maximum level of protection applies to your personal data.

The EMAG Group remains constantly vigilant in regard to protecting your privacy and assuring your right to data security. The following Q&A explains how the EMAG Group handles information that applicants provide to the company.
