Our Services make use of social network plugins. When you use a Service containing plugins, information may be directly transferred from your device to the social network operator. We have no control on the data gathered by the plugin. If you are logged into the social network, your use of our Services can be connected to your social network account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by logging in using your social media profile or clicking “Like”, “Follow” or “Share”, the information may automatically show in your social network profile. Even if you are not logged into your social media account, it may be possible the plugins transmit your IP address to the social network operators. Please consider this when using our Services.

If you use one or more of the following social networks and do not want the Operator to connect the data concerning your use of our Services with your social media data already stored by the Operator, please log off the social network before using our Services.
