Our use of the Facebook Pixel

Our website may use the Facebook Pixel. This is an invisible image that is included on the pages of our website and that is stored on Facebook's servers. Each time you open a page of our website where this pixel has been recorded, this pixel is downloaded to your device from that Facebook server. The following data is provided to Facebook: your IP address and the specific characteristics of your device (e.g. type, operating system, specific software and hardware).

While we cannot link this information to you, Facebook may do so if you also have a profile on Facebook. To this end, Facebook acts as the data controller. We therefore invite you to consult Facebook's privacy policy in order to learn about the purposes (including advertising purposes) for which the information collected by Facebook is used. We only receive statistical information from Facebook itself and not your personal data.

If you do not wish to receive certain marketing, you can adjust your advertising preferences in your personalised Facebook page. Finally, via the settings of your mobile device, you can also indicate that the machine data cannot be communicated to third parties.

Adjusting your browser settings

Any time you wish, you can adjust your browser settings for accepting or rejecting cookies. These settings can generally be found in your browser's Options or Settings menu.
