We analyze whether visitors are redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad, i.e. whether a so-called “conversion” takes place.
For the processing of the data by Facebook there are general hints https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. More information and details about the Facebook pixel can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.
