USE OF SOCIAL PLUGINS
One of the features of the Site is that a user has the ability to engage with social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com and Instagram.com, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
When you access the Facebook and Instagram social plugin through our Site, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook and Instagram servers. The content of the plugin (e.g. a “Like” button) is transferred by Facebook and Instagram directly to your browser, which then integrates it into our Site. The data that your browser sends to Facebook and Instagram includes your user ID, the website you're visiting, the date and time, and other browser-related information. If you are logged out of Facebook and Instagram, Facebook and Instagram does not receive your user ID.
You can find more information about Facebook’s privacy practices at http://www.facebook.com/policy.php. You can find more information about Instagram’s privacy practices at http://instagram.com/legal/privacy/
Your privacy is important to MINI St. John's (referred to as "we" or "us" in this policy) and the purpose of this policy is to tell you what personal information we collect about you, how we use it, whether we disclose it to anybody else, how long we keep it, and how you can request access to your personal information or obtain more information about MINI St. John's privacy policies.
