only display the Facebook ads placed by us to Facebook users who have also
shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g.

of the plug-in is transmitted from Facebook directly to the user’s device,
which integrates it into the online offer. In doing so, 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 users according to our level of knowledge.

the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the
corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook,
Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. When users interact
with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment,
the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to
Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is
still the possibility that Facebook will find out his IP address and save it.
