4. Social Plugin
The Site contains social network plug-ins (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, etc.). By accessing a page of the Site containing a similar plug-in, the internet browser connects directly to the social network servers and the plug-in is displayed on the screen thanks to the connection with the browser.
Even if the user is not registered with social networks, the sites with active social plug-ins can send data to the networks. Through an active plug-in, an encrypted cookie will be set each time the Site is accessed.

If the user does not wish to associate a visit to the pages of the Site with his or her social account, he or she must log off in the manner set out by the main social networks to allow the user to disable social plug-ins.
