The list and the appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins may be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a User accesses a page of our website, which contains such a Plugin, his/her browser will establish a direct connection to the servers of Facebook.

The website provider thus has no influence on the scope of the data which Facebook collects with the help of this Plugin and therefore informs the Users in accordance with its knowledge: The integration of the Plugin provides the information to Facebook that a User accessed the relevant page of our website. If the User is logged on to Facebook, Facebook is able to attribute the visit to his/her Facebook account. When a User interacts with the Plugins, for instance when s/he clicks the Like Button or submits a comment, the relevant information is sent by their browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a User is not a member of Facebook, it is nevertheless possible that Facebook obtains his/her IP-address and stores it. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP-address is stored in Germany.
