If you display our website with a plug-in for social network websites, your browser sends information about your visits to the administrator of those social websites. The plug-in is a fragment of a social network site built into our site. The browser sends information about the request to download the content of the social networking site onto our site.

The plugins collect certain information about you, such as your user ID, website visited, date and time, and other information about your web browser.

Social network administrators use some of this information to personalize the viewing conditions on our site. For example, when you visit a page with a „Like” button, the administrator of the social network needs information about who you are to show you which of your friends also like our site.

Plugins collect pieces of information.  Social network administrators can use them for purposes, such as improving their products, creating user profiles, analyzing and optimizing their activities, targeting ads. We have no real impact on how social network administrators use these pieces of information. You can search for details in the regulations and privacy policies of individual social networking sites.

Social network plugins collect and transfer information to the administrators of these websites even when you browse our site without being logged into your account on the social network. Then the browser sends a more limited set of information.

If you have logged into one of the social networking sites, then the website administrator will be able to directly assign a visit to our website to your profile on the given social networking site.

If you do not want social networking sites to match the data collected during your visits to our website directly to your profile on a given website, you must log out of this website before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the plugins from loading on the page by using the appropriate extensions for your browser, like script blocking.

To find out more about the processing of information collected by the administrators of social networking sites, such as the scope of data collection, data processing, your rights, settings protecting your privacy, you will find everything in the privacy policies of individual service providers:
