The list and the appearance of these Facebook social plugins can be viewed here:
If you access a web page on our website that contains one of these plugins, your browser will open a direct connection to the servers at Facebook. The content of the plugin will be sent directly by Facebook to your browser, which will then embed it in the web page. Accordingly, we have no influence on the scope of data that Facebook collects with the help of such plugins, and can only advise you to the best of our knowledge:
the integration of the plugin notifies Facebook that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. If you’re logged into Facebook, Facebook can link this visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins – by clicking the like button, for example, or posting a comment – then the corresponding information is sent directly from your browser to Facebook, where it is then stored. If you do not have a Facebook account, the possibility nonetheless exists that Facebook may discover and store your IP address.
If you have a Facebook account and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link this to the membership data that Facebook has stored in your account, then you will need to log out of Facebook before visiting our web pages.Alternatively, it’s also possible for you to block Facebook social plugins with browser add-ons such as the “Facebook Blocker“.
