Updates to Our Cookie Policy

August 4, 2016

At LinkedIn, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. We have updated our cookie policy and, in the spirit of transparency, want to share some information about the changes. Our policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies, which applies to any LinkedIn product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

We use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses LinkedIn has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to LinkedIn and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on LinkedIn and help us serve relevant ads to you. They allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the LinkedIn sites, and bring customized features to you through LinkedIn plugins such as our "Share" button. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit wikipedia.org, www.allaboutcookies.org, or www.aboutcookies.org.

We want to make sure that you have complete awareness of how our policy works and offer additional ways to opt-out. Soon, if you are a LinkedIn member but log 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, which we may share in aggregate, de-identified form with our advertising customers.You can opt-out of off-site and third-party-informed advertising by adjusting your settings. Please note that opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit; it will mean that the ads you see may not be matched to your interests. We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers. If you are not a LinkedIn member, learn more about cookies and how to opt out. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including LinkedIn cookies. Check out the updated our cookie table within the policy to share the categories and descriptions of the cookies we use.

As always, we will continue to be transparent about any changes that we make to our policy. The privacy and security of our members is our number one priority and we are committed to keeping our services secure and safe.
