This information (including your IP-Adresse) will be directly transmitted by your browser to a server of Facebook in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged on to Facebook, Facebook can directly allocate your visit of our website to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins – for example, by activating the "Like" button or entering a comment – the corresponding information will also be transmitted directly to a server of Facebook and stored there. The information will furthermore be published on your Facebook profile and be visible for your Facebook friends.
