5 – Sharing on Social Networks Where You Have an Account

From our websites, we have provided you with the ability to easily share the pages you visit on your favorite social networks. The use of buttons to access social networks is indeed likely to involve the collection and exchange of certain data between social networks and group sites.

Our site uses “plug-ins” or social modules on its various pages (“share” buttons for social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.). When you visit a page on one of our sites containing such social modules, a connection is automatically established with the servers of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) which can then be informed that you have accessed the corresponding page on our site.

If you want to limit the information published or known by these social networks, we recommend that you log out before visiting our site. Moreover, it is up to you to make the appropriate settings regarding access to your personal data on these social networks and to inform yourself about their Privacy Policy.
