  • SOCIAL MEDIA PLUG-INS

The Website may also contain so called social media plugins (such as Facebook and Twitter). When the user visits the Website, a link is formed between the user’s browser and the server of the social media plugin’s provider. Due to the link, the user’s browser may automatically transfer technical data and personal data, relating to the Website visitor, to the social media plugin service provider in question. This data may include e.g. the IP address and the information that the IP address in question has visited on the Website.

If the user opens the social media plugin while logged into their user account in the social media platform in question, the content of the Website may be linked with the user’s user account in that platform. In that case, the service provider in question may be able to connect the user’s visit to the Website with the user’s personal user account in the social media platform.

If users are not willing to allow the social media service provider to connect their visits to the Website with their user accounts in the social media platform in question, users shall log out of the social media platform. Notwithstanding, a user’s browser may still transmit the IP address and other information to the social media plugin service provider when they visit the Website, as described above.

The services of the social media plugin service providers are subject to their own terms of use, other terms and data protection policies. Below is a list of the services to which the social media plugins found on the Website relate to. The relevant terms of use and the privacy policies can be found on the websites of the services in question.

  • HOW DO YOU CONTROL COOKIES?

You can administer Cookies on the cookie setting section of our Website. Please note that the use of necessary Cookies cannot be refused on the cookie setting section of our Website. If you do not wish to have necessary Cookies stored on your device, you may choose to set your web browser to refuse necessary Cookies or delete the Cookies stored by the Website. However, you must have enabled necessary Cookies when you log into Pointscenes’ Website. You can re-enable necessary Cookies at any time through web browser settings.

For example, the following links provide information on how to adjust the cookie setting on some popular browsers:

Safari

Google Chrome

Internet Explorer

Mozilla Firefox

Please note that some parts of the Website or our services may not function properly if cookies are refused.

As stated in the table above, our Website uses the web analytics service Google Analytics. Google Analytics is used to compile analytics data and reports about the usage of the Website for the purpose of helping us improve our services. Google Analytics uses its own Cookies for the collection of analytics data. For more information of how Google Analytics collects and processes information, please refer to the Google Analytics’ website. It is possible to prevent the use of analytics Cookies on the Cookie setting section of our Website or opt-out of Google Analytics with the following browser add-on tool: Google Analytics opt-out add-on. Please note that the analytics data collected by us with Google Analytics is fully anonymized.

You may also use the “do not track” privacy preference in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. We do not track your online browsing activity on our Website beyond our basic Google Analytics tracking, which you may opt-out as set forth above. Because we do not share this kind of data with third party services or permit this kind of third party data collection on Pointscene for any of our users, and we do not track our users on third-party websites ourselves, we do not need to respond differently to an individual browser’s do not track setting.

If you are interested in turning on your browsers’ privacy and do not track settings, the do not track command has browser-specific instructions.
