These plug-ins are deactivated by default, i.e. no data is transmitted to Facebook. You can, however, activate the plug-ins and agree to the transmission of data to Facebook.
When you visit our website and have the plug-ins activated, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established via the plug-in. Facebook thus receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook "Like" button when you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of our website to your Facebook profile. As a result, Facebook can assign the visit to our website to your user account.
