• Facebook Conversion

Furthermore, with the help of the Facebook Pixel, Maren Jewellery aims to ensure that our Facebook Ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook Pixel, we can track the effectiveness of the Facebook Ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook Ad (so-called „conversion“).

Due to use of the Facebook pixel, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server, provided that you have consented to the use of marketing cookies.

By integrating the Facebook pixel, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed our website or clicked on one of our ads and/or have performed further activities on our website (e.g. you have displayed content, added items to your shopping cart, started a purchase transaction or entered payment data). If you visit other websites that also use "Facebook Conversion", this information will also be linked to your user account. However, it is not apparent to us which other websites you visit. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can associate your visits with your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that Facebook will learn and store your IP address and other identifying features.

The processing of your data by Facebook takes place within the scope of Facebook‘s data policy, available at https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. Further information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works can also be found in Facebook‘s help section, available at: https://www.facebook.com/business/help.

We would like to point out that this cookie has a duration of 180 days.

The legal basis for the data processing associated with this is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR in conjunction with your consent. Revocation of consent to the use of marketing cookies: You can revoke your consent to the use of marketing cookies at any time with effect for the future. Objection to data processing: You can prevent the use of the Facebook Pixel in various ways by<

• adjusting the settings in your browser software accordingly,

• changing the settings as a logged-in user of the Facebook social network at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#

• by deactivating it on the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

The internet is a connected environment. You will therefore not only find our own content on this website. We have also incorporated third-party content that improves the way our website works. If you access one of our web pages with such third-party content, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective provider and retrieves their content in order to display it to you.
