Social network icons
In order to implement the icons of social networking sites, such as Facebook and YouTube, and connect them to corresponding networks and external sites, scripts from these domains beyond our control are in use. You should bear in mind that these sites most likely gather information about your Internet use, including from our site. If you click on one of these icons, the sites register this action and may use that knowledge. You should read each site’s respective policies to find out how precisely your information is used and how can you refuse to impart that information or delete it.
