These websites utilize Facebook tracking pixels to record information about the way visitors use our website, including conversion tracking and audience targeting/retargeting.
This tool allows us to follow the actions of users after they are redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook or Instagram advertisement. We are thus able to record the usefulness of these advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. The collected data remains anonymous, which means that we cannot see the personal data of any individual user.

We utilize the Remarketing and Conversion Tracking service of Twitter. This tracking records if a user of our websites click on a link posted by Twitter. In this way, both we and Twitter can see if registration has taken place. The identity of the user remains anonymous. Also, we use Twitter’s Tailored Audiences service. This enables us to appeal to our websites’ users with targeted advertisements. To do this, Twitter uses a code snippet (tag) which we have integrated into our websites. No personal data are collected during this process. Tailored Audiences is also used to create targeting lists, which can be used for remarketing purposes.
To opt out, you can adjust your privacy settings for tailored advertisements at this link: https://help.twitter.com/en/safety-and-security/privacy-controls-for-tailored-ads.
