3a. Use of Meta Pixel technology

We use the so-called Meta Pixel, a service from Meta Platforms Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Meta”), to create so-called custom audiences. This happens in particular if you interact with advertisements that we share with Facebook Ireland Ltd. have switched, interact.

This is a Java Script code that is initially used to store personal data about the use of the website. This includes your IP address, the browser used and the starting and landing pages. This information is transferred to Meta servers in the USA. An automated check is made to see whether a meta cookie has been stored. The meta cookie is used to automatically determine whether a visitor belongs to the target group relevant to us. If he is part of the target group, we will display corresponding advertisements on Meta. During this process, neither we nor Meta personally identify a visitor by comparing the data.

By calling up the pixel from a browser, Meta can subsequently recognize whether a Facebook ad was successful, i.e. whether it led to an online application. We then receive statistical data from Meta without reference to a specific person. This allows us to record the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes.

Please note that this may also involve processing by Meta Platforms Inc., based in the USA.

Further information about data protection at Meta can be found in Meta's privacy policy.
