In addition, LinkedIn processes information about how you interact with our LinkedIn company profile, e.g. whether you follow our profile.

This data processing is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR, in particular in order to recognize usage preferences (e.g. number of so-called followers, number of views of individual page areas, user statistics by age, geography and language) and to be able to adapt and improve the offer on our LinkedIn company profile as closely as possible to the target group.
