Such buttons enable users browsing through the sites to interact via a “click” directly with the social networks and the other websites thus symbolized. In that event, the social networks and the other websites acquire the data pertaining to the user’s visit, whereas the Data Controller will share no browsing information or data about the user acquired through his own site with the social networks or the other accessible websites, thanks to its Social buttons/widgets.
