Privacy Notice LinkedIn

We would like to inform you in the following about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of “LinkedIn”.

Purpose of processing

EIZO Technologies GmbH operates its LinkedIn site in order to present itself to, and communicate with, LinkedIn users and other interested persons who visit the LinkedIn site.


As the operator of this social media profile, EIZO Technologies GmbH, Benzweg 3, 82538 Geretsried, Deutschland, is also responsible in terms of data protection law. This means that EIZO Technologies GmbH must also guarantee that your data is processed lawfully via this profile and that you can exercise your rights regarding your data also against EIZO Technologies GmbH (see article 26 DSGVO).


Information about you may be collected through cookies on this social media profile, whether or not you have a LinkedIn account. Cookies are packets of data that tag users’ computers, smartphones, and other devices with a unique identifier. They are regularly stored on the user’s device when they visit a LinkedIn page, including this profile. The information stored in the cookies is received, recorded and processed by LinkedIn, particularly when the user visits LinkedIn services, services provided by other members of the LinkedIn group of companies, and services provided by other companies using LinkedIn services. In addition, other entities such as LinkedIn partners or even third parties may use cookies on LinkedIn services to provide services to companies advertising on LinkedIn. For more information about LinkedIn’s use of cookies, see their privacy policies. Cookies are primarily used to provide visitors to LinkedIn sites with, for example, personalized advertising. We do this by displaying ads on our LinkedIn profile from LinkedIn’s advertising partners whose websites the user has previously visited. Cookies also allow us to compile statistics about the use of a social media profile, so that LinkedIn and EIZO Technologies GmbH can track the use of a social media profile.

The collection of your data through cookies in the context of the use of a social media profile is not required by law or contract. It is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. There is therefore no obligation to transfer your data to LinkedIn. However, the non-transmission of your data (e.g. by blocking cookies) means that we cannot offer you our social media profile, or can only offer it to a limited extent.

Further details on the use of cookies by LinkedIn can be found in the data policy

( and the Cookie Policy ( of LinkedIn.

Legal basis of the data processing

LinkedIn is certified for the EU-US Privacy Shield, which means that LinkedIn must adhere to a standard of data protection for users in Europe that has been found by the European Commission to be comparable to the European standard.

LinkedIn users can control the extent to which their user behavior may be tracked when they visit our LinkedIn site by going to the Advertising Preferences settings. Other options are available through the LinkedIn preferences or the right of objection form.
