Share on LinkedIn

We make use of a social plug-in to enable you to share Website’s information on LinkedIn through “Share on LinkedIn” buttons. For visitors located outside of the U.S., the linkedin.com website is operated by LinkedIn Ireland U.C, 77 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, Dublin, 2 Ireland. If you reside in the U.S., the responsible legal entity will be the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.

For data privacy reasons, we deliberately opted against utilizing direct social network plug-ins on our website. Instead, we employ an alternative technical solution that allows you to decide whether to transmit data to the social network operators and when. Thus when you visit the Website, data are never automatically transmitted to LinkedIn. Only when you actively click on the respective button yourself will your web browser connect to the servers of LinkedIn, i.e. clicking on elements then clicking on the social network’s icon indicates your consent to your browser connecting to the servers of LinkedIn and sending usage data to that social network operator, whether or not you are a subscriber of such social network.

We have no influence over the nature or scope of data that social networks may then gather. For information regarding the purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of data by social networks and regarding your data privacy rights and relevant configuration settings, see the social networks’ respective data privacy advisories.

Links to third party websites. The Website may create links to other websites, which are not subject to this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you examine the privacy policy applicable to these other websites.

In addition, you may object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, as the case may be, at any time, free of charge and without having to provide a justification by following the abovementioned procedure.

In general, you also have the right to withdraw your consent to any processing based on your consent (if any) at any time. This withdrawal of consent does not compromise the legality of the processing based on consent made prior to such withdrawal.

If you consider that the processing of your personal data constitutes a violation of the data protection law(s), you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of the European Union of your usual place of residence, your place of work or the place where the violation occurred.
