The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s browser and integrated into the website by the browser.

If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If a user interacts with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the protection of the privacy of the users can be found in the Facebook data protection information: .
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the website and delete the corresponding Facebook cookies.
