2. Gathering and storage of personal data, as well as their type and purpose
a) Information gathered by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company:
If you don’t want LinkedIn to track your visits to other websites, log out or deactivate the “stay logged in” feature, remove the cookies on your computer, and quit and restart your browser. This will remove LinkedIn data that can be used to directly identify you.
b) Information utilized by us (“Page Insights”):
LinkedIn provides “Page Insights” to eye Square GmbH. These Page Insights include statistics and usage data that allow us to learn about how users interact with our LinkedIn Page. These Insights are tied to the Pages and cannot be turned off.
Eye square GmbH is unable to determine which user data is gathered by LinkedIn. As the owner of the LinkedIn page, we can only see your public LinkedIn profile. Your profile preferences determine which information is visible.
LinkedIn provides us with anonymized information on the use and utilization of our LinkedIn page. In this context, for example, we provide and handle the following information:
Evaluation of followers: for example, the number of people who follow us, as well as the growth of followers over time.
Reach data: for example, the number of individuals who see our specific posts or an evaluation of interactions with our postings. This allows us to determine which content is more popular in our community than others, for example.
Ad performance evaluation: for example, how many individuals notice our adverts.
This statistics data cannot be linked to our subscribers’ profiles, so no personal references may be formed.
c) Legal foundation:
We utilize the data to constantly improve our LinkedIn online offering and to better respond to our users’ interests. You may control how targeted advertising is displayed to you in your LinkedIn settings. LinkedIn collects this information. We operate our LinkedIn page based on our legitimate interests under Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. We’d want to tailor your LinkedIn page’s offer to your target audience and identify user preferences (e.g., number of followers, number of views on different page parts, user data by age, geography, and language).
Furthermore, whether you contact us via our LinkedIn page (e.g., via the messages function, the comments function, or via e-mail), we process your personal data (such as your name and the content of your messages, questions, or other contributions to us). We then use this information to properly process your contributions and, if necessary, respond to them. The legal foundation for the processing is implicit permission in accordance with Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR. We use your information to contact you and process your requests or contributions.
3. Data disclosure to third parties:
Depending on your account settings, LinkedIn may handle and transfer data about you to other parties, including countries outside the European Union. Please see the following link for additional information about the transfer of your data to third parties:
4. Data subjects’ rights:
According to Art. 26 I GDPR, LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company and we at eye Square GmbH are joint controllers.
Because of this shared obligation, you have the right to exercise your data subject rights against both us and the LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company.
