Braingroup has integrated components (buttons, icons, videos) of the social network LinkedIn. The purpose of integrating the social media component is to draw visitors’ attention to our other communication channels, to make this website better known and to increase our visitor numbers.
If you call up a page on braingroup.ch with integrated social network components, your internet browser automatically downloads a representation of the buttons from the corresponding social networks. Social networks such as LinkedIn always receive the information via this component that you have visited our website. The social network receives knowledge of which specific subpage of our website you visit and assigns the information to your account.
