In this context, Google Tag Manager stores cookies on your computer and analyses–insofar as web-tracking tools have been run via Google Tag Manager–your surfing behaviour (so-called “tracking”). These data that are sent by individual tags integrated into Google Tag Manager are compiled, stored and processed by Google Tag Manager under one uniform user interface. All integrated “tags” shall be once again separately indicated in this Data Protection Declaration. You can find detailed information regarding the data protection for the tools that have been integrated into Google Tag Manager in the respective section of this Data Protection Declaration.

    The EU Commission has determined that an appropriate data protection level can exist in the USA if the data processing company subjects itself to the US-EU Privacy Shield Convention and the data export has been reliably designed in this manner to the USA. This is indeed the case with Google LLC. With regards to the web services integrated via Google Tag Manager, the provisions in the respective section of this Data Protection Declaration shall be valid. If tracking tools are used in Google Tag Manager, they shall ensure, through an IP anonymisation of the source code, that the IP address is anonymised by Google Tag Manager before transmission is made.
