Our Site uses:


Social Media Button 

The Site also integrates Social Media Buttons to enable better user interaction and facilitate content sharing on social media. The Site integrates Social Media Buttons from the following platforms: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn.

When users click on Social Media Buttons, the browser connects to the social network servers the Social Media Button is linked to. The Social Media Button can track users’ visits to the Site and, where appropriate, link it with their social media accounts; this happens especially if users are logged in at the time of their visit or have recently browsed a website integrating Social Media Buttons. If you do not wish social networks to record data about your Site visit, you should sign out of your social account and delete all cookies the social network has installed in your browser.

In connection with specific activities, VGV and social media platforms may also act as joint data controllers, pursuant to Article 26 of the GDPR. In particular, this happens when VGV, through a Social Media Button, jointly determines with the social media platform that the processing purposes and means consist of the user data’s collection and transmission to the social media platform. In such cases, VGV adheres to the social media platform’s contractual terms and conditions, which may include joint controllership agreements.

Concerning the personal data processing carried out by social media platforms integrated with the Site, please refer to the social media platforms’ respective privacy policies:
