They enable websites to store user information such as preferences and settings. Cookies basically allow websites to remember users and their preferred settings for that particular site, enabling the site to respond accordingly.
2.How does Bentley Motors use cookies?
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. Certain areas of the Bentley Motors website use cookies for specific reasons (e.g., to help a vehicle visualiser effectively on your device).
3.Site performance cookies
