By using the Google Tag Manager Johnson Matthey & Brandenberger AG can automatically understand which button, link or which personalised picture the visitors have actively clicked on and thereby determine which contents of the webpage are of particular interest for them. The tool also triggers other tags that themselves in some cases record data. Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If visitors have undertaken to deactivate the domain- or cookie-level, this remains for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
