Some pages on the Website load information from social networks to enable targeted advertising for our products on the social network platform.

This piece of code sends general hashed information about the actions taken on the Website to the social networks, to help the us target our advertisements to the people who visited our Website.
iv. Similar technologies
As an alternative for tracking cookies, we also use Google Enhanced Conversions. When you for instance purchase an item from the website, Polaroid may share your personal data in hashed form with Google (for example your email address). Google then matches such data to a Google account, which was signed-in to when you engaged with one of our ads. The conversion event is reported to us to improve Polaroid’s conversion measurement.
