8. Social Plugins
Our Internet presentation uses “Social Plugins” (plugins or extension modules) from different social networks. With these social plugins you can, for example, share content or recommend products. On mycs.com, these modules are disabled by default and therefore do not transmit data. By clicking on the “Enable Social Networks” button, you can activate all plugins (“2-click solution”). If these plugins are enabled when you visit a website of our Internet presentation, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the corresponding social networks. The content of the plugin is directly transferred by the social network to your browser, which integrates it into the website. Plugins can be disabled with only one click. Thanks to the integration of the plugins, the social network is informed that you have accessed the page in question on our website. If you are connected to the social network, it can link your visit to your account. When you interact with the plugins, if you use, for example, the “Like” button on Facebook or post a comment, the information in question will be directly transmitted by your browser to the social network and stored by the social network. For the purpose and extent of data collection, data processing and use by social networks, as well as your privacy rights and privacy settings, refer to the privacy statements of the relevant social networks or their websites. You will find useful links below. If you do not want social networks to collect data about you through our Internet presentation, you must disconnect from these social networks before visiting our Internet presentation. Even if you are not connected to social networks, data can be transferred through websites that integrate active social plugins into social networks. Through an active plugin, a cookie with an identifier is created during each connection to the website. Since your browser transmits, without requesting, this cookie during each connection with a social media server, the latter could in principle use it to create a profile making it possible to know which web pages the user holding this identification has visited. Consequently, it would be entirely possible to reassign this identification to a person, for example during a subsequent connection with the social network. We use the following plugins on our websites: For MYCS: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. If you do not want social networks to collect data about you through active plugins, you can either disable social plugins with just a click on our website or selecting the “block third-party cookies” option in your browser settings. The browser thus does not send cookies to the server regarding integrated contents of other advertisers. With this configuration, it is possible that, apart from the plugins, other inter-page functionalities no longer function.

10.1 Use of Bing Ads Tracking
10.2 Use of Google Adwords Conversion-Tracking
We use the Google AdWords online advertising program and as part of Google AdWords, Conversion Tracking. Google's Tracking Conversion is a tracker, an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, “Google”).
When you click on a Google ad, a conversion tracking cookie will be left in your computer. The information stored by the cookies has a limited validity period, does not contain personal data and is therefore not for personal identification purposes.
If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not expired, ourselves and Google will be able to identify that you have clicked on an ad and that you have been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. Thus, it is impossible to track cookies on advertisers' websites.
The information obtained via the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information personally identifying the users.
10.3 Use of Outbrain
We use the Outbrain Conversion Tracking Tool (Outbrain UK Ltd, 5 New Bridge Street, London, EC4V 6JA, UK). The conversion tracking pixel will be implemented when a user is linked to an Outbrain ad. Outbrain's built-in ads are determined based on the content you've previously read. Ad content is technically controlled and automatically selected by Outbrain. Outbrain pixels do not contain information to personally identify users. Personal data is not stored. To select the appropriate content, the pixel uses information such as the device source, browser type, and your fully anonymised IP address by deleting the last byte.
