If you interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking the “Like”, the “+1”, the “Pin it” or “Twitter” button, the relevant information is also immediately transmitted directly to one of the providers’ servers and stored there. The information is also published in the social network or your Twitter account and shown to your contacts there.
