You can correctly configure access and privacy settings on the social networks. 

Sodiaal International collects on its own behalf certain information and personal data relating to your activity on Sodiaal International social network pages or Sodiaal International sites and apps which use social network services.

These are, in particular “Like” or “share” buttons on third-party social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. which you may find on our sites and apps. 

They allow you to like and share information from our sites and apps with your friends on social networks. When you consult any page on our Sodiaal International  websites (web or mobile) including plug-ins or social modules, a connection is established with social network servers (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) who are then informed that you accessed the corresponding page on the Sodiaal International  Website consulted, and even if you do not have a Facebook or Twitter account, and even if you are not logged in to your Facebook or Twitter account.

If you use plug-ins (e.g.: likes), your actions may be stored and published on your social network accounts depending on the settings of your social network accounts. If you do not want social networks to publish your actions using plug-ins on your social network accounts, you should log out from social networks before visiting our Website.
