Google and Facebook advertising

This website also uses Google AdWords & Facebook remarketing service to advertise on third party websites to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry, or downloading the share offer document. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the Isle of Wight Community Energy website. Wight Community Energy won’t collect or pass on personally identifiable data without visitors’ express permission.
