Facebook Conversion Tracking and Custom Audiences
This website uses the Facebook Conversion Tracking Pixel and the Custom Audience Pixel services of Facebook. This allows us to track the activity on the website of users who visit the website via an advertisement on Facebook. This way we can measure how efficient our advertisements are. The collected data is anonymous. This means that we do not receive data from Facebook from individual users. The data is stored and processed by Facebook. Facebook may associate the data with your Facebook account and use the data for their own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook's Data Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. The Facebook Conversion Tracking also allows Facebook and its partners to show you advertisements outside of Facebook. For this a cookie is placed on your computer.
