THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COOKIES WE USE
Cookies on our websites are used in a number of ways.
1. Anonymous analytical cookies
The analytical cookies that we use store anonymous information about which pages people visit, how long they are on the site, how they got there and what they click on. Information supplied by these cookies help us to analyse the profile of our visitors, make sure our websites are meeting your needs and how we could provide you with an improved experience. Anonymous analytical cookies do not collect or store your personal information (for example, names or addresses), so this information cannot be used to identify you.
2. Profile management cookies
3. Third-party advertising cookies
A lot of Citroën advertisements you see featured on other websites are served by third parties. These third parties use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once. The companies that generate these cookies have their own cookies/privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies. These third party advertising cookies may be used by those third parties to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites.
4. Other third-party cookies
Citroën websites use third party cookies to monitor customer journey and suggest information fulfilment action when relevant, for example, offering you the option for a brochure or test drive when appropriate. This is achieved by the third parties setting their own anonymous cookies for the purposes of tracking the progress of your user journey with us. Because of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies, but nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by our websites.
