Google Tag Manager

On our website we use the "Google Tag Manager" from Google. With this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. Tags are small code elements on a website that are used, among other things, to measure traffic and visitor behaviour, to measure the impact of online advertising and social channels, to use remarketing and targeting, and to test and optimise the website. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. The Google Tag Manager follows a set of trigger rules that determine when these tags should be used on a website. When a user visits the website, the tags are triggered according to the configuration and the corresponding cookies are loaded into their browser. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. By using the Google Tag Manager, your use of our website will be more efficient and faster, because by managing the correct tags, our website will be faster. If Google Tag Manager has been deactivated at the domain or cookie level, it will remain deactivated for all tracking tags if they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
