This makes it possible to evaluate ads in terms of their effectiveness for statistical or other market research purposes and to improve further advertising. We cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of users, but Meta may subsequently customise the placement of ads on and off Facebook. To do this, Meta may use cookies, web beacons or other storage technologies and may set a cookie for a maximum of 180 days with data that may include your visits to our website or your clicking on one of our advertisements, once you have given your consent to the use of cookies that require such permission.
