1. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored by your browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Safari) on your device (e.g. computer or phone). They enable websites to store user information such as preferences and settings. Cookies basically allow websites to remember users and to remember their preferred settings for that particular site, enabling the site to respond accordingly and helping us to understand more about the frequent visitors to our websites.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example, if on a previous visit you went to our Grand Touring pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight lifestyle related information on your second and subsequent visits.
3. Site preference cookies
Site preference cookies remember preferences set by the user for features found on Bentley Motors websites, meaning you don't have to reset them on each visit, e.g. language settings.
4. Anonymous analytics cookies
