Therefore, the provider has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin, and therefore informs the user accordingly for their knowledge:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offering. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, press the Like button or comment, the corresponding information will be sent directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, however, there is the possibility that Facebook will find and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only anonymized IP addresses are stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as the rights and settings for the protection of the privacy of the users can be found in Facebook's privacy statement:

This offering uses the "+1" button on the social network Google Plus operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button can be recognized by the "+1? on a white or colored background.

When a user browses a web page that contains such a button, the browser connects directly to Google's servers. The content of the "+1" button is transmitted directly by Google to the users' browsers and is integrated into the web page. Therefore, the provider has no influence on the extent of the data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal data are collected without a click on the button. Only with logged-in members, such data including the IP address, are collected and processed.

Users can find the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights and settings for the protection of your privacy at Google's data protection notification for the "+1? Button": and the FAQ:

With the help of the buttons, it is possible to share a post or page of this offering at Twitter or to follow the provider at Twitter.

When a user browses a web page that contains such a button, their browser builds a direct link to the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted directly from Twitter to the user's browser.
