LinkedIn Insight Tag

We use LinkedIn Insight tag (or LinkedIn Pixel) of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (“LinkedIn”) on our website. By integrating this tag, we can display interest-based and relevant advertisements (“Ads”) to you as a user of our website when you visit the LinkedIn social network or other websites that also use the method, and we receive statistics about website visitors and demographics. Furthermore, we can evaluate your use of our LinkedIn ads and the interest in our offers, by means of a conversion tracking function and also display LinkedIn ads to you on other websites via retargeting. In this way, we pursue the interest of improving the effectiveness of the LinkedIn ads and making our website more interesting for you.

 If you accept the corresponding cookie, your browser establishes a direct connection with the LinkedIn server, both when visiting the LinkedIn website and websites that have the LinkedIn Insight tag built in. LinkedIn and we are jointly responsible for the collection of your usage data when you visit our website and the transmission to the provider, but LinkedIn is solely responsible for the relevant processing to carry out the objectives described once the data has been transmitted. We have no influence on the scope and nature of the use of the data by LinkedIn, we therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of the LinkedIn Insight tag, LinkedIn receives the information that you have called up the corresponding web page of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a LinkedIn service, LinkedIn can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with LinkedIn or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will learn your IP address, time slot and other identifying characteristics and link them to the actions assigned to you.

The deactivation of the LinkedIn Insight tag and further advertising objections are possible in the settings for advertisements under Manage ad settings | LinkedIn Help and additionally under Unsubscribe from ads (linkedin.com). Further setting options and information can be found in the LinkedIn Privacy Center: Privacy (linkedin.com).
