        This website uses the Insight tag from LinkedIn. The provider of this service is the LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

        Data processing by LinkedIn Insight Tag

        By using the LinkedIn Insight Tag, we receive information about visitors to our website. If a visitor to the website is registered with LinkedIn, we can, among other things, analyze the key professional data (e.g., career level, company size, country, location, industry, and job title) of our website visitors and thus better tailor our site to the respective target groups. Furthermore, we can use LinkedIn Insight Tags to measure whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or take any other action (conversion measurement). Conversion measurement can also be performed across devices (e.g. from PC to tablet). The LinkedIn Insight Tag also provides a retargeting feature which allows us to display targeted off-site advertising to the visitors of our website, whereby, according to LinkedIn, there is no identification of the advertising addressee.

        LinkedIn itself also collects so-called log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser characteristics and the time of access). The IP addresses are shortened or (if used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymized). The direct identifiers of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymized data are then deleted within 180 days.

        The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be assigned to specific individuals by us as the website operator. LinkedIn will store the collected personal data of visitors to the website on its servers in the USA and use these in the context of its own advertising activities. For details, see LinkedIn's privacy policy at

        Legal framework

        The use of LinkedIn Insight is based on Art. 6 Sec. 1 lit. a GDPR.
