LinkedIn Insight Tag 2.0
We use LinkedIn Insight Tag 2.0 to understand how our marketing campaigns work and how you interact with our website in order to improve user experience. We also use it for website retargeting, conversion tracking and website demographics. This is what LinkedIn says about Insight Tag: The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of data regarding members’ visits to your website, including the URL, referrer, IP address, device and browser characteristics, timestamp, and page views. This data is encrypted, then de-identified within seven days, and the de-identified data is deleted within 90 days. LinkedIn does not share the personal data with the website owner, it only provides aggregated reports about the website audience and ad performance. LinkedIn also provides retargeting for website visitors, enabling the website owner to show personalised ads off its website by using this data, but without identifying the member. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes through their account settings.
You can opt out of LinkedIn Insight Tag by visiting http://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out
