In general with every access to a LinkedIn page, the IP address assigned to your device is transmitted to LinkedIn. In line with “German” IP addresses, this IP address is anonymized and deleted after 90 days, according to LinkedIn. Additionally, LinkedIn stores information about the used end devices (for example in the context of “registration notification”) and is therefore able to assign IP addresses to individual users (if necessary).

LinkedIn stores a cookie including your LinkedIn ID on your device while you are logged in as a LinkedIn user. This enables LinkedIn to track your visits on this site and how you use it. This also applies to all other LinkedIn pages. By using LinkedIn buttons embedded in websites, LinkedIn is able to record your visits to these websites and match them to your LinkedIn profile. This data enables them to offer tailored content or advertising based on your visits and searches.

In case you want to avoid this and delete the information that can be used to identify you immediately, you can follow the steps below:

·       Log out of LinkedIn or disable the “stay signed in” feature

·       Delete the cookies on your device

·       Exit and restart your browser

By following these steps, you should be able to visit our LinkedIn profile without revealing your LinkedIn identification. By using interactive features on our profile such as liking, commenting or sharing posts, a LinkedIn login screen will appear and only as soon as you have logged in, LinkedIn will be able to recognize you as a specific user again.
