Non-users of the social network
You can determine whether you want non-users of the social network to be able to find and access the information in your profile, e.g. via search engines. Separate privacy settings are available to you here. If you opt not to restrict these settings, the information in your profile will be visible and accessible to non-users of the social network, although this does not include any personal contact details such as e-mail addresses and phone numbers.
The standard external accessibility of profile information forms a central element of XING as a way of fostering networking between users, as many business contacts are made in the first instance when other users (or third parties) find the name of a user when conducting research in search engines.
With some features on XING (e.g. with posts in groups on guest lists) another user determines whether and to what extent the data used or shared for a particular function is visible or accessible to other users and non-users, and who is authorised to read this content and add to this content. If you aren’t able to change these settings through your own privacy settings we will inform you about the respective use of your data in the respective feature.
