Social buttons. 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, Facebook ‘Like’ and Pinterest ’PinIt'. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of Bents Garden & Home. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Bents Garden & Home's 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 Bents Garden & Home, and the specific pages you are on, even if you don’t click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Twitter 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.
