Here, the customers find out about the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were forwarded to a site provided with a conversion tracking tag.

Use of Facebook plug-ins
This Internet site uses plug-ins of the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
Whenever you display one of our Internet pages that hosts a Facebook plug-in you will be linked to the Facebook servers, a message is sent to your browser, and the plug-in is run on the Internet page. This is telling the Facebook server which of our pages you have visited. Assuming you are logged on to your Facebook member account while running the Facebook plug-in, Facebook will allocate the information to your personal Facebook user account. Further information collected and allocated by Facebook is the use of plug-in functions (like clicking on the Like button or posting a comment). To prevent this data collection and allocation, you must log off your Facebook user account before running the plug-in.
If you do not wish Facebook to collect and directly allocate the above information to your Facebook profile, you will either have to log off from Facebook before visiting our site or run a "Facebook blocker" which stops the Facebook plug-ins from running on our pages.
Using Instagram plug-ins
These websites use the plug-in from online service provider Instagram, which is provided by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram").
If you access pages on our website that contain this plug-in, this will generate a connection to the Instagram server and indicate the plug-in on the site by means of message in your browser. Information such as your IP address and which websites you have visited is transmitted to the Instagram server.
If you are logged into Instagram, Instagram will assign this information to your personal user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. clicking the “Instagram” button”) this information is also assigned to your Instagram account, which you can only prevent by logging out prior to using the plug-in.
If you do not want Instagram to directly add the information collected to your Instagram account, you must either log out of Instagram prior to visiting our site or use an add-on or the script blocker “NoScript” (noscript.net) to block the Instagram plug-in loading on our websites.
