Cookies for social media and advertising

Meta Pixel

On Facebook and Instagram you sometimes see messages from the city. With the Meta Pixel we track which pages you visit on our website. This way we can only show you messages on Facebook and Instagram, to make them more relevant to you. For example, if we advertise for a job offer, we'll make sure you don't see the ad again if you already saw the offer.

We only use the Meta Pixel for large campaigns. Right now, we are using it for our recruitment campaign 'I leuv mijn job'.

We keep the data up to 4 months.
