We use information gathered from cookies to help improve your experience on our website and for security reasons. The cookies we use do not store personally identifiable information nor can they harm your computer. We want our website to be informative, personal, and as user friendly as possible and cookies help us to achieve that goal.

Our Privacy Policy explains how we protect your privacy in our use of cookies and other information.

We use the following cookies on our website:

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential to enable you to browse around our website and use its features.

Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our websites — for instance, which pages you go to most. This data may be used to help optimize our websites and make them easier for you to navigate. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow our websites to remember choices you make while browsing. For instance, we may store your language selection in a cookie. We may also remember preferences such as text size, fonts, and other customizable site elements.  The information these cookies collect will not personally identify you, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Google TagManager

We use the Google Tag Manager, a solution from Google Inc. that allows companies to manage website tags through a single interface. The Google Tag Manager is a cookie-less domain that does not collect personal information. The Google Tag Manager will trigger other tags that may collect data. We herewith point this out separately. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made by the user at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

LinkedIn Insight Tags

We use the “LinkedIn Insight Tag” of LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W Maude Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA (“LinkedIn”) on our website. It helps us with in-depth campaign reporting and insights about our website visitors. It can also be used to track conversions, retarget website visitors, and unlock additional insights about members interacting with our ads on LinkedIn.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of data regarding members’ visits to our website, including the URL, referrer, IP address, device and browser characteristics (User Agent), and timestamp. This data is encrypted, the IP addresses are truncated, and members’ direct identifiers are removed within seven days in order to make the data pseudonymous. This remaining, pseudonymized data is then deleted within 90 days.

LinkedIn does not share personal data with us, it only provides aggregated reports about the website audience and ad performance. LinkedIn also provides retargeting for website visitors, enabling us to show personalized ads off our 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.
