The social networking applications present on the Site, as mentioned above, may in some cases allow the corresponding social networks to identify you, even if you have not clicked on the application buttons. This type of button can in fact allow the relevant social network to follow your navigation on the Site, simply because your account on that social network is activated on your device (“open session”) while you browse.

We recommend that you review the policies of these social networks in order to be aware of the purposes and uses, including advertising, of the browsing information they may collect. These policies must allow you to make your choices with these social networks, in particular by setting up your account uses for each of them.
