As a result, the respective provider receives in particular the information that your browser has visited the website in question and the IP address of the device used, even if you do not have an account with the provider. If you are logged in at the provider's website at the same time, the provider can assign the visit to your personal profile. If you interact with a plug-in – for example by pressing the "Like" button or making a comment – the corresponding information is transferred directly from your browser to the provider concerned and stored there. The interaction may also be published on the profile you hold with the provider and be visible to your contacts.

In such cases the respective provider processes your Personal Data as controller and in accordance with their own data protection regulations. If you want to prevent the provider from assigning data to your profile, you must delete the corresponding Cookies. You can also completely prevent the loading of plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. using "No Script" or "No-Script Suite".
