We use components from the LinkedIn network on our site. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. With each individual visit to our website that is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from LinkedIn. This process informs LinkedIn which specific page of our website is currently being visited. If you click the LinkedIn “Recommend Button” while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to associate the visit to our pages with your LinkedIn user account. We have no influence on the data that LinkedIn collects through this, nor on the scope of this data collected by LinkedIn. We also have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted to LinkedIn. Details on data collection by LinkedIn as well as your rights and setting options can be found in LinkedIn’s privacy notices. You can find this information at http://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.
We also use the Google advertising tool “Google-Adwords” to advertise our website. As part of this, we use the “Conversion Tracking” analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”, on our website. If you visit our website via a Google ad, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These conversion cookies are no longer valid after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can identify that you as a user have clicked on one of our ads placed with Google and have been redirected to our site. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookies is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. Through these statistics, we learn the total number of users who clicked on our ad and which pages of our website were subsequently visited by the respective user. However, we or other advertisers via “Google Adwords” do not receive any information which can be used to personally identify users.
