Cookies set by Third Party sites
On many of the pages of the site you will see ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. There are buttons for: Twitter, LinkedIn ‘Share’ and AddThis. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of Proact. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Proacts site. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting Proact, and the specific pages you are on, even if you don’t click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Google and Facebook. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information. More information on AddThis social button can be found here.
External web services
We use a number of external web services on the Proact site, mostly to display content within our web pages. For example, to show videos we use YouTube. As with the social buttons we cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not know who you are but are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.
