LinkedIn

The programmer has integrated components of LinkedIn Corporation into this web site. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect to existing business contacts and make new business contacts. More than 400 million registered users in more than 200 countries use LinkedIn. This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.

LinkedIn is operated by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For data protection matters outside the USA, LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

Each time our website is accessed and equipped with a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), this component causes the browser used by the person concerned to download a corresponding representation of the LinkedIn component. In the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is simultaneously logged in to LinkedIn, every time the person concerned visits our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, LinkedIn recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective LinkedIn account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.

LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever the person concerned is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the LinkedIn component or not.

If such a transmission of this information to LinkedIn is not desired by the person concerned, he can prevent the transmission by logging out of his LinkedIn account before calling up our website.

LinkedIn offers the possibility to unsubscribe e-mail messages, SMS messages and targeted ads as well as to manage ad settings under the following link. LinkedIn also uses partners such as Quantcast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua and Lotame who can set cookies. Such cookies can be rejected under the following link. The applicable data protection regulations of LinkedIn are available under the following link.
