LinkedIn Plugin


We use the "LinkedIn"-plug-ins of the social network LinkedIn provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("LinkedIn"). The button is marked using the letters "in" or the word "share" on a blue background.
If a user visits one of the websites using such a button, the user’s browser directly connects to LinkedIn’s servers. The plug-in and its content are loaded directly from LinkedIn’s servers and included in the website by the user’s browser. For this reason, we cannot influence which data LinkedIn connects via the button. If a user that is a LinkedIn member and logged in on the network at the time of clicking on the button, LinkedIn will connect this information with the user’s profile.

The reason for and scope of the data acquisition and information about the way in which the data is processed and used by LinkedIn, as well as the user’s rights in this respect and settings options for protecting the users privacy can be found in LinkedIn’s privacy statement relating to the Linked-In plug-ins:
