  2. Using cookie technology, we may also target you with personalised advertising or, based on an analysis of your behaviour, display advertisements to users who are similar to you in terms of certain statistical characteristics. We use the Pixel tool for this purpose. This is provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave. Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (and for users residing in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland), which automatically collects data on the use of the Application by users in order for the Administrator to target them with personalised advertising on Facebook (i.e. based on their behaviour on the Application). We use the Pixel tool to display our ads to those Facebook and Instagram users who have expressed an interest in our content (e.g., visited the website or one of our Facebook pages or groups) or who exhibit characteristics that may indicate a potential interest in the Service (e.g., specific interests). By means of the Pixel tool we also create so-called groups of similar recipients (persons who have statistically similar characteristics to our existing recipients or users of the Application) to whom we display our advertisements.
