 A Plug-in is a software component that enhances the use of the website’s available services, particularly when the website itself does not have the required tools to achieve the intended result. JAVA and ADOBE FLASH PLAYER are some examples.
 The use of these technologies may entail that the content that they collect is transferred to countries outside the European Union, creating the so-called “cross-border data transfer”.
 This means that our website acts as a bridge to our service providers’ website.
 By providing data through the available Plug-in on our website, you may be allowing these entities to see that the connection was established from our website and even to create user profiles or directly associate to other already existing profiles.
