share (e.g. “tweet”) on social networks like Facebook. These buttons work using pieces of code
coming from Facebook themselves. This code places cookies. These social media buttons also can

DART uses “non personally identifiable information”. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
