2. Information to help you better understand cookies, device data and similar technologies
(a) What is a cookie?
Short answer: A small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, that can be sent to your browser when you visit websites, and stored by your web browser on your device.
A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come; the "lifetime" of the cookie; and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
When looking at the “lifetime” of a cookie, two types of cookies are used on this website:
|Type of Cookie:||Explanation of this (short answer):||More detail:|
|Session Cookies,||These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser only until you leave the site.||Session cookies are used to allow you to carry information across pages of our site and avoid having to re-enter information.
They are also used within registration pages to allow you to access stored information.
|Persistent Cookies||These remain in the cookie file of your browser for longer. (How long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).||Persistent cookies are used to help us recognise a device as a unique visitor (using a number, you cannot be identified by personally) when the device returns again to our website.
This allows us to tailor content or advertisements to match your preferred interests or to avoid showing you the same adverts repeatedly.
We also compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our site and to help us improve the structure of our website. With these compiled statistics, we cannot identify you personally in this way.
When looking at the uses of a cookie, this website, like many others, uses both first and third party cookies. We explain each of these types below.
First party cookies:
Where cookies are stored by us for Jaguar Land Rover purposes, these are called “first party cookies”. Jaguar Land Rover uses a number of first party cookies, primarily for 4 purposes, which are explained in more detail below. The list of first party cookies is made available to you, both in the list below, and when clicking the “manage preferences” section of the cookie banner choices that should appear to you when our home page downloads first time.
Third party cookies:
Some cookies that are stored when you visit our website may be accessed by other companies. For example:
- Where we use an advertising partner, that advertising partner may store and access its own cookies [or pixel-tags?] in order that we and they can target adverts to you about Jaguar Land Rover products you have been browsing on our websites.
Cookies used on this website, like many other websites, are in the main placed to support 4 key purposes. Information about each of these is below.
