Facebook Pixel

From time to time we run campaigns to reach our existing client audiences on Facebook. Facebook makes use of a pixel code which sits on our website and acts similarly to a cookie in that it gives us information again of how people coming from Facebook to our website, are using our site. Any customer data that passes through the Facebook pixel is ‘hashed’ locally on the browser before it goes to the Facebook servers for matching. This hashing process turns your data into short encrypted messages that cannot be tampered with. They use these hashes to match pixel events with people on Facebook. Then Facebook deletes all matched and unmatched hashes immediately after the matching process ends. They do not collect or store any personally identifiable information on their servers.

The Facebook pixel also uses a secure https connection, so that any data transmitted from the browser is safely returned to their servers.
