Remarketing via Google

Google’s remarketing technology is integrated into our websites. This technology enables people who have previously visited our online services and expressed an interest in them to see targeted advertising on websites operated by Google partner networks. Similarly, users who are similar to our website visitors can be addressed. Advertising will be presented via site cookies. Through the use of cookies, a website’s user behaviour may be analysed and then used to give targeted product suggestions and advertising depending on the user’s interests.

If you wish to opt out of receiving targeted advertising, you may do so through Google by deactivating the usage of cookies for these reasons. Alternatively, consumers can opt out of third-party providers’ cookie use by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page.

Please keep in mind that Google has its own data privacy policy that is distinct from ours. We make no representations or warranties regarding their policies and processes. Please take a moment to read Google’s privacy statement before using our websites.

Pixels for Facebook

Our website makes use of Facebook Inc.’s ‘Pixel’ service. This feature enables us to retarget people who have visited the Prospects website on Facebook. Additionally, it is a statistical and market research tool that is used to track the effectiveness of Facebook adverts. The collected data is kept completely anonymous. This implies that we are unable to view any user’s personal information. However, Facebook* saves and processes the data collected. Facebook has the ability to link the data to your Facebook account and to use it for its own advertising purposes in compliance with Facebook’s Data Use Policy. You can cancel your permission in the Facebook – Custom Audiences section of the website.

LinkedIn Insights Keyword

The LinkedIn Insight Tag is used on our website. This feature enables us to retarget visitors who have visited our website via LinkedIn’s advertising network. Additionally, it enables us to view additional data on visitors to our website who use the LinkedIn platform.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag gathers metadata such as IP addresses, timestamps, page visits, and events. Each piece of data is encrypted. LinkedIn’s browser cookie is retained in a user’s browser until the cookie is deleted or expires.
