We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the WebMe website now carries embedded ‘share’ buttons to enable users of the site to easily share articles with their friends through a number of popular social networks.

5. Other Third Party IP Address Processing activities
If you shorten WebMe URLs, for example on Twitter or Facebook, and use the bit.ly service to do so, WebMe works with bit.ly to rebrand that as a http://w.me.uk/xxxxx link. Also WebMe web products or phone apps sometimes offer features that allow users to share links with social networks and WebMe shortens that URL using the bit.ly service.
