connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the device of
the user and incorporated by him into the online offer. In the process, user profiles can be created from the
processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help
of this plugin and therefore informs the users according to our knowledge.

of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account.

transmitted from your device directly 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.
