Data privacy policy for presence on LinkedIn

At LinkedIn, we maintain an online presence to represent our company and services, and to communicate with customers/interested parties. LinkedIn is a service from LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, a subsidiary of LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA.

 

When you visit this website, LinkedIn registers, among other things, your IP address and other information present in the form of cookies on your PC. This information is used to provide us as this page's operator with statistical information about use of the page. The data collected about you in this context are processed by LinkedIn, and possibly transferred to countries outside the European Union. Which information LinkedIn receives, and how the information is used, is described in a general form by LinkedIn's data usage and privacy policies. There you are also informed about the possibilities of contacting LinkedIn. The data usage policies and complete data guidelines are available at the following link:

We do not know how LinkedIn uses data collected during visits to its pages for its own purposes, the extent to which activities on LinkedIn's pages are associated with individual users, for how long LinkedIn stores these data, and whether data from a visit to LinkedIn's website is passed on to third parties.

 

When you access a LinkedIn page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to LinkedIn. LinkedIn also stores information about its users' devices (e.g. as part of login notification); this can allow LinkedIn to associate IP addresses with individual users.

 

If you are currently logged in at LinkedIn as a user, there is a cookie with your LinkedIn ID on your device. This allows LinkedIn to track your visit to the page and your activities there. This also applies to all other LinkedIn pages. Via buttons integrated into its web pages, LinkedIn can register your visits to the pages and associate them with your LinkedIn profile. These data can be used to offer content or ads tailored to you.

 

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of LinkedIn, having made sure that the "stay logged in" function is disabled, delete the cookies present on your device, stop your browser and then restart it. This deletes the information via which LinkedIn can identify you directly. It allows you to use our LinkedIn page without disclosing your LinkedIn ID. If you then try to access interactive functions on the page (reactions, comments, shares, messages etc.), LinkedIn shows a login dialog. If you decide to log in again, you will be recognizable as a specific user for LinkedIn.

 

Information on how to manage or delete existent personal data is provided on the following LinkedIn support pages:

As a provider of this information service, we do not collect or process any further data from your use of our service.
