5. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES
LinkedIn Profile Services LLC Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow LinkedIn Profile Services LLC to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. LinkedIn Profile Services LLC may include Web beacons in promotional email messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our Site and how you use the site.
6. ACCESSING WEB ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We will provide you with the means to ensure that Personally Identifiable Information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant our Contact website form.

9. HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION
10. AGGREGATE DATA
We may share and publicize aggregated and/or de-identified PII with third parties and the public. While we will make reasonable efforts to assure that such PII remains de-identified, we cannot guaranty that an internet user with sufficient computing power cannot re-identify such information.
11. CHILDREN UNDER 13
We do not market to or knowingly collect PII from children under 13 for any purposes. Because some information is collected online, it may not appear to be the PII of a child under 13. If a child under 13 submits PII to us and we learn that the personal information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you are under 13, please do not register for any of our services or provide us any information about yourself (such as your name, email address or phone number).
12. OPTING OUT OF MARKETING
LinkedIn Profile Services LLC will provide the right to request and receive, once a year and free of charge, information about third parties to whom we have disclosed certain types of PII (if any) about you for our direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, and a description of the categories of PII shared. To make such a request, please send an email to our Contact website form and please include the phrase “Personal Information Privacy Request” in the subject line, the domain name of the Site you are inquiring about, along with your name, address and email address. At our option, we may respond to such requests by providing instructions about how our users can exercise their options to prevent our disclosure of PII to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
