Social media plug-ins of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn (among others) are integrated on the Services. Where the Services contain a plug-in to a social network, these are clearly marked (e.g. with a Facebook button). If you chose to click on one of these buttons or links, your browser connects directly to the servers of the relevant social network. The social network directly transmits the content of the plugin to your browser. If you are registered on the relevant social network and logged into your respective account the social network receives the information that the web page was used by you.

If you are not registered with the social network or you are logged out before you visit the Services, there is the possibility that at least your IP address will be submitted to and stored by the social network.

However, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
