Facebook Custom Audiences:
Facebook’s custom audiences feature enables Skillnet Ireland to create an audience list for sending ads through Facebook. Skillnet Ireland uses customer data such as email addresses and phone numbers to match (at an email address or telephone level) to Facebook users. If a Facebook user clicks on an ad which has been sent to them because they are part of a custom audience list, a Facebook cookie installed on the Facebook website allows their user behaviour to be tracked. This enables Skillnet Ireland to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to Skillnet Ireland.

Users may opt out of Facebook Custom Audiences by visiting https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
