This way the network operators are able to create complete surfing profiles of their members.
If you activate one of our websites pages, which has a plugin of this kind, your browser sets up a direct link to the social network’s servers. The content of the social plugins is transmitted directly from the social network to your browser and is then embedded into the website.
