Use of LinkedIn Insight Tag
We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company (Attn: Legal Dept., Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland; “LinkedIn”) on our website for conversion tracking (visit action evaluation) and retargeting (displaying personalized advertisements).
The LinkedIn Insight Tag places a unique LinkedIn browser cookie (conversion cookie) in your browser and allows the collection of the following data for this cookie: metadata such as IP address, timestamp, and page events (e.g., page views). These cookies have a limited validity. If you visit specific pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, LinkedIn and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to that page.
The LinkedIn Insight Tag also allows LinkedIn to collect data on visits to our website, including URL, referrer URL, IP address, device, and browser characteristics (user agent), as well as timestamps. This data is transmitted to LinkedIn, encrypted, with IP addresses truncated, and LinkedIn member direct IDs removed within seven days to pseudonymize the data. These remaining pseudonymized data will be deleted by LinkedIn within 90 days.
LinkedIn does not share personal data with us but provides only aggregated reports on website audience and ad performance. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings.
The information obtained through the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. In this process, we learn the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag.
