What are cookies?


A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. Nearly all websites use cookie technology.

This technology is downloaded by your internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you access this website from the same device, the cookie and the information stored in it is either sent back to the site that generated it (first-party cookie) or to a different website to which it belongs (third-party cookie). This enables the website to recognise whether you have already accessed the site through this browser and, in many cases, it may then vary the content displayed.

Some cookies can be extremely useful, because they improve the user experience when you return to a site you have already visited several times. As long as you use the same terminal and the same browser, cookies will remember your preferences for the site, for example, and make the offers displayed more relevant to your personal interests and needs. Depending on their function and purpose, cookies can be divided into four categories *: essential cookies; performance cookies; functional cookies; and cookies for marketing purposes. 

On the BMW Group website, you have the option of agreeing to the use of cookies in principle and thus being able to use all functions of the website without restrictions. If you do not accept or deactivate the use of cookies, this may result in functional restrictions. In the case of deactivation, no distinction is made between first-party cookies and third-party cookies.

Your cookie settings on this website.

The individual cookies of each category are listed in the following format:

Cookie name / Expiry date.

  • Purpose

Cookies exempt from consent on this website.

Strictly necessary cookies guarantee functions without which you would not be able to use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by BMW and are therefore called first-party cookies. Strictly necessary cookies are used, for instance, to store your decision regarding the use of cookies on our website.Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies cannot be disabled via the function of this page. In general, you can disable cookies at any time in your browser.

List of cookies exempt from consent.

Cookies exempt from consent or essential cookies are needed so that you can navigate a website and use its features. Without these cookies, functionalities cannot be guaranteed - for example, actions taken during a visit (e.g. text entry or vehicle configuration) may not be preserved when navigating between different pages of the site.

Cookies subject to consent on this website.

Cookies that by legal definition are not strictly necessary to use the website fulfill important tasks. Without these cookies, functions intended for your surfing convenience on our website, such as watching embedded YouTube videos, would no longer be available.

BMW also integrates contents from third parties into this website. Example of this is the incorporation of YouTube videos. These third-party providers can in theory set cookies while you are visiting the BMW Group website and thus receive information such as the fact that you have loaded a BMW Group website. Please visit the websites of third-party providers to obtain further information on how they use cookies. If you have fundamentally decided not to accept or cancel the use of cookies subject to consent, you will only be provided with those functionalities on our website which we can guarantee will work without these cookies. Sections of our website that potentially have the technical means to incorporate third-party contents and thus set third-party cookies will in this case not be available to you. A corresponding notice will inform you of this. If you still wish to use the content of the website in such a case, this will only be possible if you agree to the use of cookies subject to consent. To do so, please use the function provided in the relevant position on our website to give your consent.

List of cookies subject to consent.

Functional Cookies.

Functional cookies enable a website to store information already entered (such as user name, language or current location) and offer the user improved, more personalised features. For example, a site might offer information on local pricing, if the website uses cookies to store the region in which the user is currently located. Functional cookies are also used to enable requested functions, such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information; they cannot track your movements on other websites.

Performance Cookies.

Performance cookies collect information about the way a website is used – about which pages a visitor accesses the most and whether error messages are displayed by a particular page.

These cookies are solely used to improve the performance of a website and the user experience.

Cookies for marketing purposes.

When you start a YouTube video, it might be that a data processing event is triggered. BMW AG has no influence on this process.
