Insights Reports generated by LinkedIn on Customer's behalf are considered delivered on the date the Insights Reports are sent to Customer, even if LinkedIn provides additional analysis of the Insights Reports at a later date (e.g. responses to follow-up questions, modifications, etc.). LinkedIn will not release any underlying LinkedIn data or third-party data used to generate Insights Reports. LinkedIn retains ownership of all right, title, and interest to all content included in the Insights Reports (including any associated intellectual property rights).

5. TALENT MEDIA SERVICES
5.2 Recruitment Ads, Sponsored Jobs and Sponsored Updates. Recruitment Ads, Sponsored Jobs and Sponsored Updates are Talent Media sold under an auction model. The auction is a generalized second price auction and Customer only has to pay just enough to beat the second highest bidder. For example, if the winning advertiser has a bid of ten ($10) dollars cost-per-click, but the next highest bid is seven ($7) dollars, the winning advertiser only pays $7.01. The second price method allows each advertiser to bid the absolute maximum they are willing to pay for the Talent Media. LinkedIn will charge enough to enable the highest price to be paid to win the auction.
5.3 Work With Us Ads. Work With Us Ads will launch within 3 days from the Start Date in the ordering document using a default ad unit configured by LinkedIn, unless otherwise agreed in writing by LinkedIn. LinkedIn cannot identify all Members at a specific company because of company name inconsistencies.

LinkedIn can only identify Members who have selected a company name from the pre-existing list.
5.4 Pipeline Builder.
