Facebook Custom Audiences

EasyGayChat.site wants to present “interest-targeted ads” on Facebook and limit the frequency of certain ads being displayed. For this purpose, EasyGayChat.site uses Facebook’s “Website Custom Audiences” and “Facebook-Pixel” analysis tools. For the Facebook pixel, this is a JavaScript code that sends the following information to Facebook Ireland Ltd, Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”):

Http header data (among others: IP address, web browser information, page location, document, URL of the website and of each page viewed, user agent of the web browser, as well as date and time of use );
Events (visit to the EasyGayChat.site user page, registration, carrying out the personality test, purchase);
Pixel specific data; including the pixel identifier and Facebook cookie information, including your Facebook identifier (these are used to associate the events with a specific Facebook advertising account and assign them to a Facebook user).

Facebook automatically checks, using the encrypted and user-specific Facebook ID, whether the data transmitted by the Facebook pixel can be attributed to a Facebook user. If no Facebook cookie is stored in your browser, there will be no assignment to a group of custom audience users (“Custom Audience”).

If the Facebook identifier contained in the Facebook cookie can be assigned to a Facebook user, Facebook assigns this user to a Custom Audience according to the rules that we have defined, provided that the applicable criteria are met. We use the information thus obtained to broadcast advertisements on Facebook (“Facebook-Ads”). However, advertisements are only broadcast from a Custom Audience of at least 20 different users – thus the dissemination of ads does not allow conclusions to be drawn on the characteristics of the individual user. . The assignment to a Custom Audience takes effect for a maximum of 180 days. This period is renewed when you visit our website again and there is a concordance with the same Custom Audience rules.

Facebook can link your visit to our website and your related activities to your Facebook account. This is not possible for us. We only receive statistical information from Facebook about the use of our website via the Facebook tool “Audience Insights”.

You can use a version of EasyGayChat.site free of cookies and web analysis via the URL EasyGayChat.site. In this case, only cookies strictly necessary for the use of the website are used.

Social plugins

The integration of social plugins regularly results in the plugin providers storing cookies. The different plugin providers are presented below under the term “plugin providers”

In order to optimize the protection of your data when visiting our online offer, the plugins are integrated on the site using the “Shariff solutions”. Thus, when you consult a page of this online offer, no connection is established with the servers of the corresponding plugin supplier.

It is only when you activate the plugins that your Internet browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the respective plugin provider. The supplier then receives the information that your Internet browser has accessed the corresponding page of our online offer, even if you do not have a user account with this supplier or if you are not logged in. The log files (including the IP address) are then transmitted directly from your Internet browser to the provider’s server to be saved there, if necessary. This server can be located outside the EU or outside the EEA (e.g. the United States).

Plugins are independent extensions offered by plugin providers. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data collected and saved via the plugins by the plugin providers.

If you do not want plugin providers to receive and, where appropriate, save and process the data obtained via this online offer, you must not use the corresponding plugins.

In principle, you can completely prevent the loading of plugins using add-ons for your browser, called “blockers”
