On our website, you find the so called “like-button” in form of a “thumbs-up”-icon. If you are looking for further information on the functionality of the Facebook-like-button you can find it here. During your visit of the SAFFAeventsUK website your IP address is transferred to Facebook because of a direct connection between the browser and the facebook server. Thus Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. Further information is in Facebook’s data use policy which you can find here.
