Update to LinkedIn's Privacy Policy

June 1, 2012

We'd like to let our members know that a week from now, on June 7th 2012, we're planning to update our Privacy Policy and User Agreement to provide you greater control over your data with further clarity on our terms.

Here are a couple of key areas the updated Policy will encompass:

  • We have shortened the time we keep personally identifiable information obtained through our plug-ins and our off-site advertising to 24 hours.
  • We have enhanced member privacy controls by making your public profile settings determine what information can be accessed outside of LinkedIn by search engines and third parties.

Ensuring more privacy and control over your personal data remains our highest priority. We'll be updating this post with links to the latest version of our Privacy Policy.

Stay tuned for more information in the weeks to come.
