California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) or, for Users resident in the EU – Facebook Ireland Ltd. based in Ireland (4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland).

Facebook Pixel is a code fragment placed on our Portal that allows Facebook to identify people visiting our Portal as a target group for displaying Facebook ads on their social profiles (e.g. as part of sponsored advertisements). The above is our legitimate interest (Article 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR).

The Facebook Pixel tool allows us to display our published ads on Facebook only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our services or who have certain common factors (such as interests in certain topics or products determined by the tabs visited on our website, products viewed), that we pass on to Facebook.

The Facebook Pixel tool allows us to understand the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes, showing whether users were redirected to our Portal after clicking on an advertisement of Facebook in order to create the so-called similar recipients or statistical twins, i.e. broadcasting advertisements to target groups similar to existing Users and obtaining comprehensive statistics on the use of the website.

During the user’s visit to the Portal, the Facebook Pixel tool establishes a direct connection with Facebook servers. Thus, the Facebook server is notified that the User has visited the Portal, and Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account.

Facebook is a certified entity under the Privacy Shield Agreement and therefore guarantees compliance with European data protection law:

.

The data collected by the Facebook Pixel tool is anonymised. However, we are obliged to inform you that Facebook may combine this data with other information about the User, collected as part of the User’s use of Facebook and use them for its own purposes, including marketing. These type of activities by Facebook are independent of us, and information about them can be found directly in Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.

From the level of his Facebook account, the User may also manage his privacy settings.

This data is encrypted and the information enabling the user’s identification is deleted within 7 days. Ultimately, the data will be deleted within 90 days.

The use of LinkedIn buttons is in the interest of exchanging information about our services and improving them. This constitutes a legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 par. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
