smartcards - silver stickers

I have just bought a new smartcard.
in the container are four small silver tabs, which look as if they might stick to a position on the card, what purpose do these serve please?

The silver tabs are for write protecting. If you wish to ensure that the contents of the card cannot be deleted, these will prevent formatting until removed.
