The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user’s browser and is integrated into the website by the browser. The provider has therefore no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook is using this plugin and therefore informs the users according to their knowledge: By incorporating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called the corresponding page of the online offer. 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 press the Like button or comment, the corresponding information will be sent directly to Facebook by Facebook and stored there.
