If you provide information to us about another person, you should ensure that you comply with any legal obligations that may apply to your provision of the information to us.
C. Information we obtain by automated means
We use different types of first and third-party cookies on the Link Website for several reasons. First-party cookies are those that we place on your device through the Link Website; third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your device through the Link Website.
- To track user trends and patterns: This helps us better understand and improve areas of Link Services that our users find valuable.
- To provide you with personalized content: (your user preferences, your default language, device and browser information so we can identify you across devices and personalize the content you see).
- To provide social media features and to analyze our traffic: We also share information about your use of the Link Website with our social media and analytics partners. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our Clients’ and Visitors’ needs.
We use five types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, marketing cookies, and website analytics cookies.
Strictly necessary cookies
Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Link Website and use its features. These are temporary cookies that last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for purposes such as enabling better navigation on our website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.
Performance cookies are stored on your device for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our website services and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore made anonymous. These cookies are used to improve the performance of the Links website, and with it, the user experience.
Functional cookies enable the website to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, language choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request, such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
Link and third parties acting on our behalf (such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) may collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your interests.
Website analytics cookies
For more information on the cookies we use and how you can manage them, please access our Preference Center, or adjust the settings on your browser. Please note that if you disable functional cookies on your browser, some parts of the Link Website may not work fully.
Other tracking devices
Link uses data analytics companies, advertising networks, or social media companies, and the features they offer, to engage in “cross-device tracking,” which occurs when platforms, publishers, and advertising technology companies try to connect a consumer's activity across smartphones, tablets, desktop computers, and other connected devices. The goal of cross-device tracking is to enable companies to link a consumer’s behavior across devices.
II. How Link uses the collected information
- provide Visitors with access to the Link Website;
- improve the Link Website, including statistical analysis of the Link Website;
- customize Visitors’ experience on the Link Website;
- deliver content tailored to Visitors’ interest and the manner in which Visitors browse the Link Website;

- operate, evaluate, and improve Link Services;
- process Clients’ purchases and transactions;
- respond to Visitors’ and Clients’ inquiries;
- for our information technology or security purposes;
- debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality on the Link Website;
- detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, and prosecute those responsible for that activity;
- comply with applicable laws and regulatory requirements, or as requested by the government or regulatory authorities;
- facilitate a merger, divestiture, acquisition, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which Personal Information held by us is among the assets transferred.
Link may also use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
III. Information that Link discloses to others
- our affiliates;
- service providers who perform services on our behalf (including cloud services), depending on the nature of our relationship with you;
- our financial and transaction counterparties;
- our professional advisors; and
- your agents and representatives.
Link also may disclose information about you in the following contexts:
- if we are required to do so by law or legal process,
- to law enforcement authorities, regulators and/or other government entities and/or other competent authorities based on a lawful disclosure request, or
- when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity.
We reserve the right to transfer Personal Information we have about you or otherwise process in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, spin-off, dissolution or liquidation). In addition, Link may share anonymous/aggregated information with third parties, such as service providers, in order to facilitate our business operations.
IV. How we protect Personal Information
Link maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect Personal Information we obtain through the Link Website against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use. However, neither individuals nor security systems are foolproof, and the transmission of information via the Internet is also not completely secure. As a result, while Link uses reasonable security measures to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of the Link Website or Link Services, or the information collected and maintained in relation to them.
Where Link has given you or allowed you to choose a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Link Website or Link Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and for complying with any other security procedures of which we notify you or which you believe are reasonable. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
V. International Transfers
VI. Retention and deletion of your information
We will retain your information in line with our retention policies and, in any event, for no longer than is necessary given the purpose for which it was collected.
Note that we may retain some limited information about you so that we can maintain a continuous relationship with you if and when we are in contact with you again. You can opt out of receiving marketing information or contact us to delete your contact details at any time.

Use and disclosure of Personal Information
Link does not “sell” your Personal Information in the traditional sense. Like many organizations, however, we engage third parties to help deliver interest-based advertisements to you and may make use of third-party tracking technologies or other online marketing services. In doing so, we may make available or transfer your Personal Information (e.g., Identifiers such as your IP address, Geolocation data, and Internet or other similar network activity) to third parties, such as advertising agencies, advertising services, analytics providers, sponsored content providers, social media platforms, and other similar technology companies. In certain cases, sharing data with these providers could be considered a “sale” under the CCPA even though it is not a sale in the traditional sense.
- To opt-out of receiving interest-based advertising, you can exercise your choice by using your account privacy settings described in the “Information we obtain by automated means” Section I(C) above or our Preference Center.
- You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment from us based on your exercising of any privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.
VIII. Links to other websites
The Link Website may provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. These websites may operate independently from us. Linked websites may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review. To the extent any linked websites are not owned or controlled by us, we are not responsible for their content, any use of the websites, or the privacy practices of the websites.
