3 - DATA COLLECTION BY OTHER WEBSITES

Facebook Plug-in

Decathlon.ie may use plug-ins from Facebook, the social network operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. If You access a page on our website that contains a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct link to Facebook’s servers. The plug-in content will then be sent directly to your browser by Facebook and included on the relevant web page. Facebook will be notified that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if You do not have a Facebook account or if You are not logged in to your Facebook account. Your IP address will be sent directly by your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and registered on that server.

If You are logged in to Facebook when You browse our website, Facebook may directly link your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If, for example, You click ‘Like’ or leave a comment on Facebook regarding our website using a plug-in, the corresponding information will be sent to a Facebook server, recorded on it and published on your Facebook account. Facebook may use such information for advertising and market research purposes, and adapt its pages accordingly. Facebook may therefore create user profiles, including information about users’ interests and relationships, to determine how users react after having seen an advert on Facebook, inform other Facebook users about the activity of our website and offer other services linked to Facebook.

If You do not wish Facebook to link information collected via our website to your Facebook account, You should log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

For more information about the amount of data collected by Facebook and the purpose for which it is collected, processed and used by Facebook, as well as about your rights and how You can configure your computer to protect your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s policy on data protection, which is available by clicking this link Facebook’s data policy.

Twitter Plug-ins

The Website uses Twitter plug-ins, a service of Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter”). The plug-ins are indicated via a Twitter logo. If You visit a page on the Website that contains a plug-in, your browser will establish a direct link to Twitter’s servers. The plug-in’s content is transmitted directly by Twitter to the browser.

Following the integration of the plug-in, Twitter receives the information You have requested on the corresponding page. If You are connected to Twitter, Twitter may link your visit to the relevant page and the use of the plug-in on that page (for example, the publication of a link to the Website on the User’s Twitter account) to the User’s Twitter account. The purpose and scope of data collection, their further processing and use, and your corresponding rights and the configuration of your privacy settings are exclusively determined by Twitter. Twitter is also the controller of your data.

If You do want Twitter to collect data in the manner referred to above, You must log out of Twitter before visiting the Website.
