Facebook Custom Audiences
We may participate in Facebook’s Custom Audience program which enables us to display relevant adverts to individuals on our email database when they visit Facebook.com. Facebook matches the email addresses we upload to Facebook with their records to determine if someone is a registered account holder with Facebook. Adverts can also be shown on Facebook based upon the pages that have been viewed by an individual on the Game & Wildlife Conservation trust website.
