The group companies are obligated according to the requirements of data protection. The group companies of REECO GmbH can be found on our homepage http://www.reeco.eu/standorte.html.
The transfer of personal data from visitors to group companies takes place only for visitors who have been mediated by the respective group company.

In such transactions, customer data is usually transmitted as well. Your personal data will be protected according to the data protection requirements.

By using the remarketing or “similar target group” feature of Google Inc. (“Google”), we can target visitors to the site with advertisements by showing personalized, interest-related ads to visitors of our website, when they visit other Web pages on the Google Display-network. Google uses the so-called “cookies” to perform the analysis of website usage, which is the basis for the creation of interest-related advertisements. To do this, Google stores a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the visitors to the website. This number records website visits and anonymous data on website use. There is no storage of personal data of visitors to the website.
- Google Tag Manager
Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows us to manage various website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect personally identifiable information. The tool makes it possible to trigger other tags, which may, in turn, collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
