Data Protection - LinkedIn
Data protection provisions about the application and use of LinkedInThe controller has integrated components of LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is a web-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and forge new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people in more than 200 countries use LinkedIn. Thus, LinkedIn is currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
With each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective LinkedIn component to download a depiction of the corresponding component from LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. In the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.
With every visit to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, LinkedIn detects which specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject, if the data subject is logged in on LinkedIn at the same time. This information is collected via the LinkedIn component and associated with the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website, LinkedIn associates this information with the personal LinkedIn account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Whenever the data subject is logged in on LinkedIn while visiting our website, LinkedIn receives information that the data subject has visited our website via the LinkedIn component. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If a transmission of this information to LinkedIn is undesired by the data subject, they may prevent it by logging off from their LinkedIn account before visiting our website.
Our data protection officer will also be at your disposal if you request information, suggestions or have any complaints.
