The tracking of users who have landed on our website after clicking on one of our Facebook and Instagram ads can remain active up to 180 days.

The data collected in this way is anonymous for us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, about which we will inform you to the best of our knowledge.  Facebook may connect this data to the Facebook account and also use it for its own advertising purposes, according to its data usage policy.  If you want to disable cookie storage for Facebook, you can do so via your browser settings.

We also use Facebook communication tools, especially the "Custom Audiences" and "Website Custom Audiences" products. Basically, a non-reversible and non-personal checksum (hash value) is generated from your usage data, which can be transmitted to Facebook for analysis and marketing purposes.
