What technologies are used?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables LinkedIn features and functionality. Any browser visiting our sites may receive cookies from us or cookies from third parties such as our customers, partners or service providers.
We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and is used for many purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user, so it’s easier to interact with our Services without signing in again. Since a persistent cookie stays in your browser, it will be read by LinkedIn when you return to our Services. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
A pixel is a tiny image that may be embedded within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides device and visit information) to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.
Local storage enables a website or application to store information locally on your device(s). Local storage may be used to improve the LinkedIn experience, for example, by enabling features, remembering your preferences and speeding up site functionality.
Our cookie tables list some of the cookies that are used by us and third parties as part of our Services. Please note that these tables may be updated from time to time to provide you with the latest information.
What are these technologies used for?
If you’re signed in, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience in line with your settings.
If you are an Alumni but logged out of your account on a browser, LinkedIn may still continue to log your interaction with our Services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our Services. We may share these analytics in aggregate form with our customers.
What third parties use these technologies in connection with our Services?
Manage Cookie Preferences
Where required, we enable you to reject the use of certain cookies for purposes such as analytics and research, by visiting your cookie settings, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal. Site members and visitors can view and manage these settings by clicking Cookie Settings from the site footer.
What is Do Not Track (DNT)?
DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. As such, LinkedIn does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
