Als Linked-in Nutzer geschieht es immer wieder, dass die Nutzungsbedingungen geändert und mit der aktualisierten Weiternutzung auch fast "automatisch" akzeptiert werden.
Dieses Mal, ab dem 12. September 2013, werden erneut solche Änderungen vorgenommen und dem Nutzer in der folgenden Notiz zur Verfügung gestellt. Auf Englisch - und nur auf Englisch:
Importantly, as mentioned the User Agreement and its summary, we have changed the minimum age of a person to access LinkedIn’s online services. LinkedIn is not available to children under 13, but the minimum age to become a member of LinkedIn will be anywhere from 13 to 18 years old depending on the country, as described in Section 2.3.
Section 1.2.: In our description of what we use your registration information for, we added a reference to customized and language-specific “content.”
Section 1.4.: We explain that we use your uploaded address book information to recommend connections to you “and others”, including showing you and other LinkedIn members that you share the same uploaded contacts who may or may not be LinkedIn members, in order to help you build your network and be better connected. We also changed the explicit reference to “Rapportive” to refer to LinkedIn software tools in order to accommodate branding changes and new products in the future. We also removed some duplicative language from this section.
Section 1.9.: We added clarifying language to indicate that LinkedIn uses advertising technology both on and off LinkedIn – to help us serve more relevant advertising on LinkedIn.
Section 1.10.: We added some minor clarifying language around device operating system details that we receive when you access LinkedIn using a mobile device.
Section 2.1.: We clarified that you can change your consent to LinkedIn’s collection and processing of your information at any time by changing your profile (in addition to whatever settings changes you may make (or if you close your account).
Section 2.5.: Explains in better detail that LinkedIn may share your information with, or receive information from affiliates including SlideShare when you bind your LinkedIn and SlideShare accounts.
Section 2.6. : We explain that third parties may look up your LinkedIn information through developer integrations (profile look up) based on email or name information. Additionally, we clarify that you may be able to upload your LinkedIn contacts to another service, where applicable.
Section 3.2.: We clarify that we only retain plugin impression data for up to 7 days.
Section 4.1.: We insert a specific reference to our Safety Center.
