Social plug-ins and relations with social networks

Our web pages allow for interaction with social networks by means of sharing buttons and also may contain social network plug-ins (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube).

If you access one of our web pages equipped with this type of plug-in, the web browser connects directly to the servers of the social network and the plug-in is displayed on the screen thanks to the connection with the browser. If a party concerned who uses a social network visits our web pages while connected to a social account, his or her personal information may be associated with the social account. The information will also be associated with the social account if the plug-in functions are used.

As regards the methods of privacy protection and the processing of the personal information collected by those social networks to allow for the above-mentioned interaction, please refer to the pages of the individual social networks. If the user of our website does not want to associate the visit to our web pages with a social account, he or she must log off from the social network before visiting them.
Please take note that if a service for interaction with social networks is installed, it is possible that, even if you are not using the service, they may collect traffic data relating to the pages on which it is installed.
