You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on Gary Crotaz Ltd’s site. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information.

As with the social buttons we cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content.
