We use Facebook Pixel to measure target groups and to build and optimise our Facebook advertising campaigns. Some of the key reasons for this is that it allows us to see how users move between different devices when they visit our website and Facebook, to ensure that our Facebook advertisements are seen, and to make further analyses about which content the visitor has seen and which interaction was used on our website.

The collected data is anonymous meaning that we cannot see personal data of individuals users. Facebook, however, does retain and process the collected data. The information we offer here is based on the information that is currently available. Facebook can link the data to your Facebook account and use this data for their own advertising purposes, which complies with Facebook’s privacy policy that can be accessed via the following link:

The Facebook Pixel also allows Facebook and its partners to show advertisements on and outside of Facebook.
