We would like to give you the legal basis for this:

This data will be processed in accordance with this privacy policy.

5. Shariff: Social media buttons with privacy

Our social media buttons don’t estab­lish direct contact between social network and visi­tors until the latter actively clicks the share button. If the user is already logged into a social network, face­book and google+ do so without another window. A pop-up window appears on twitter where you can still edit the text of the tweet. Users can ther­e­fore post content on social networks without being able to create complete surf profiles.
The usual social media buttons transfer the user data to face­book & co. every time you view the page and give the social networks precise infor­ma­tion about your brow­sing beha­vior (user tracking). To do this, you don’t need to log in or be a member of the network. On the other hand, a shariff button does not estab­lish direct contact between social network and visitor until the latter actively clicks on the share button.
This prevents shariff from leaving a digital trail on every page you visit and improves privacy. Then you can like at will, more infor­ma­tion the social network does not get.
The display of the “likes” comes thanks to shariff from the site’s operator with the buttons. Because shariff is involved by the webmaster, you don’t have to do anything else as a visitor.
