Please read this policy carefully before using this website because it explains how we will process personal data. Using this website indicates that you accept this policy.
This website, email messaging, online services, advertisements and interactive applications use “cookies” for optimizing our services.
A “cookie” is a small file, typically of letters and numbers that we send to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk by our web server. The main purpose of a cookie is to allow our web server to present the user with customized web pages that make the experience when visiting the Opel website more personal and better responding to the user’s individual needs.
Some cookies are important for the functionality of this Website and are automatically activated when visited by the users. Some cookies allow us to provide the user with services and functions that best suit their needs, and to tailor our service to them to ensure easy and fast operation of the website.
These are temporary cookies that are stored in the cookie file of your browser until you end your browser session. Those cookies are mandatory for certain applications or functionalities on this Website to work properly.
We may use persistent cookies for a better user experience (e.g. providing optimized navigation). Those cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for a longer period. This time period will depend on the choice you make in the settings of your internet browser. Persistent cookies allow information to be passed to a web server each time someone visits the website. Persistent cookies are also known as tracking cookies.
Opel uses especially three types of cookies on this website:
• Strictly necessary cookies
• Performance cookies
• Functionality cookies
Strictly necessary cookies
These strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable user to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, some services can’t be provided, e.g. navigating back to a page in the same session. Strictly necessary cookies can’t be disabled using the features of this website. You can however completely disable cookies in your browser at any time.
Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies.
These cookies are used exclusively by myOpel and are therefore known as first-party cookies. They are only saved on your computer while you are actually browsing the website.
Performance cookies are used by tools that monitor visitor behaviour on our website, e.g. which pages our visitors open most often and how long our visitors stay on a page. These cookies don’t save information that would allow you to be identified. These cookies are used exclusively to help us improve our information and services on the website, and with it the user experience.
These cookies enable a website to save information about choices the user has made (e.g. cookie settings). These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track the user’s behaviour on other websites.
