Social network share buttons

We use share buttons in social networks so that our users may share webpages or select them as favourites. These include share buttons for outside social network websites. These social networks may record information on your Internet activities, including our webpage. You can review the conditions of use and privacy policies of these websites to know exactly how they use the information, and learn how to remove or delete this information.

Outside Web services

Sometimes, we use outside web services to show content within our webpages. For instance, we may want to show images and videos, or conduct surveys. As with share buttons for social networks, we cannot keep these external domains or websites from gathering information on the use of integrated content.

Communications via email

We may also use monitoring technologies to determine if you have read, clicked on or forwarded certain email messages we have sent; this allows our communications to be more useful and interesting. If you do not want us to confirm whether you have opened, clicked on or forwarded our messages, you must cancel this feature, since we are unable to send these emails with the monitoring function deactivated. Registered users may update their communication preferences at any time by contacting us, or may cancel the service by following the instructions shown in our email messages.
