Used and new vehicle search – Cookies: CompareTray (session), searches, SearchData, postcode, GeoLocation
In order to provide some of the functionality within the new and used vehicle search sections of our site, we need to store some information in cookies related to the searches you have been performing. For example, whenever you compare different vehicles or adverts, we need to store the identifiers for those vehicles and adverts. We store the postcode you have entered for searches to enable us to show you the distance you are from the vehicles in the adverts, and the makes and models of vehicles you are currently searching. We also record related information about the postcode you supply, including the Acorn profiling code for that postcode, longitude and latitude of the postcode. Some of this information may also be used to bring you more relevant display adverts across our site.
