2.12 FACEBOOK PIXEL
Facebook pixel for creating custom audiences (with the cookie consent tool)
Our online services use the “Facebook pixel”, provided by the social network Facebook, which is run by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
If a user clicks on an ad that is placed by us and played on Facebook, the Facebook pixel adds extra information to the URL of our page accessed via the link. If our page allows data to be shared with Facebook using pixels, then that URL parameter is added to the user’s browser via a cookie placed directly by our linked page. That cookie is then read by the Facebook pixel and enables the data to be passed on to Facebook.
On one hand, the Facebook pixel enables Facebook to identify visitors to our online services as a target group to whom Facebook ads can be shown. Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to ensure that the Facebook ads we place are only shown to Facebook users who have actually shown an interest in our online services, or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interest in specific themes or products, determined based on their visited websites), of which we inform Facebook (“custom audiences”). On the other hand, we also use the Facebook pixel to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the user’s potential interest, and are not annoying. By this means, we can also evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by analysing whether users are sent to our website after they click on a Facebook ad (what is known as “conversion”).
The data processing involved in the use of the Facebook pixel is only carried out if you have expressly granted your consent thereto pursuant to Article 6(1)a of the GDPR. After you have given your permission, you can withdraw it at any time with future effect. To withdraw your consent, remove the tick next to the setting for the “Facebook pixel” in the cookie consent tool on the website.
