1.5 Workplace and School Provided Information
When your organization (e.g., employer or institution) buys or implements our Services for you to use, they or you give us data to invite you to join.
Others buying our Services for your use, such as your employer or your institution, provide us with personal data about you and your eligibility to use the Services that they purchase.
We are improving our Services, which means we get new data and create new ways to use data.
We use your data to provide, support, personalize and develop our Services.
How we use your personal data will depend on which Services you use, how you use those Services and the choices you make. We use the data that we have about you to provide and personalize our Services, including with the help of automated systems and inferences we make, so that our Services can be more relevant and useful to you and others.
Our Services help you connect with others, find work and business opportunities, stay informed, get training and be more productive.
We use your data to authorize access to our Services and honor your settings.
Our Services allow you to stay in touch and up to date with employers, organizations, institutions, and candidates. To do so, you can “connect” with the professionals who you choose.

Our Services also allow you to improve your professional skills, or learn new ones. We use the data we have about you (e.g., data you provide, data we collect from your engagement with our Services and inferences we make from the data we have about you), to personalize our Services for you, such as by recommending or ranking relevant content and conversations on our Services.

We use your content, activity and other data, including your name and photo, to provide notices to your network and others.
Our Services allow you to explore careers, evaluate educational opportunities, and seek out, and apply for career opportunities.

Keeping your profile accurate and up-to-date with content and media (videos/photos) may help you better connect and get hired by a quality employer. Whenever you submit an application to the employer, please review your profile before submitting. We take a snapshot of current profile information and send it to the employer.

Information you have shared with others (e.g., through InMail, updates or group posts) will remain visible after you close your account or delete the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other Members have copied out of our Services. Groups content and ratings or review content associated with closed accounts will show an unknown user as the source. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g., search engine results) until they refresh their cache.
