The DKMS website features social media plug-ins for Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. The buttons for these plug-ins are disabled and can be activated when needed, otherwise data would be sent to social network platform operators as soon as the page is loaded.
DKMS uses disabled buttons that do not communicate with other servers. A connection to network servers is not established until the user activates the buttons and thus consents to communication with the respective networks.
The activation of a button applies to the currently loaded page only. When other pages of the DKMS web site are accessed, the buttons will be disabled again. Users who want social media plug-ins to be activated at all times can click on the gear icon and select the appropriate settings using the check boxes.
