Social Media
From time to time, we test new features and make subtle changes to the way the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features, these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience whilst on the site. This is to ensure that we understand which optimisations our users appreciate the most.

LinkedIn
Our website uses components of the network LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For each call of one of our web pages containing such a component, the component causes your web browser to download a corresponding view / representation of the component from LinkedIn.

This process informs LinkedIn of the concrete web page on our website which is currently being visited. If you click the LinkedIn “Recommend” button while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of our web pages to your LinkedIn profile. In this way, LinkedIn can link the visit of our web pages to your LinkedIn user account.

We have no influence on either the data that LinkedIn gathers here, or the scope of the data that LinkedIn gathers. Nor do we have any knowledge of the contents of the information transmitted to LinkedIn. Further details about the collection of data by LinkedIn and about your rights and configuration options can be found in the data privacy information published by LinkedIn at http://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy
