Our sites use "plug-ins" or social modules on its various pages (buttons "share" of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Viadeo, …). When you visit a page of one of our sites containing such social modules, a connection is automatically established with the servers of social networks (Facebook, Twitter ...) who can then be informed you have accessed the corresponding page of our site.
If you wish to limit the information published or known by these social networks, we advise you to disconnect before visiting our site. In addition, it is your responsibility to make the appropriate settings concerning the access to your personal data on these social networks and to be informed about their Privacy Policy.
