For example with the "Share" and "Like" buttons, which come from social networks such as "Facebook", "Twitter", "LinkedIn", "Viadeo", etc.
The social network providing such button is likely to identify you through this button, even if you have not used this button when visiting a BRPST website or its services. This type of application button may allow the social network to track your browsing on a BRPST website or its services, simply because your account on the social network was activated on your technological device (open session) during your browsing on a BRPST website or its services.
