What do cookies do on the Honda website?
Cookies do lots of different jobs, and we’ve listed a few examples below:
• They can remember your preferences – such as your preferred Honda dealership. This will make certain processes easier to complete (for example finding contact details or a map).
• They can collect anonymous usage information– for example the number of people who use our dealership search tool. We use this information to continue to improve your experience.
• They can remember that you visited the Honda website, and online advertisers can use this information to tailor their messages to you – for example by serving an advert on a third party site which promotes a current Honda offer to you.
• Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
