What’s a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. It will be downloaded from your internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time this website is accessed using the same device, the cookie and the information stored therein will either be returned to the website that created it (First Party Cookie) or sent to another website to which it belongs (Third Party Cookie). This will tell the site that it has been viewed with this browser before, and in some cases will vary the content displayed.

Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve the user experience when you re-visit a website that you have already visited several times. Provided that you use the same device and the same browser as before, cookies remember for example. For example, to your preferences on how to use a page and tailor the offers displayed to more relevant to your personal interests and needs.

Depending on their function and intended use, cookies can be divided into four categories *: Strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, marketing cookies.

Approval-free cookies on this website

Strictly necessary cookies guarantee functions without which you could not use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by BMW and are therefore called First Party Cookies. They are only stored on your device during the current browser session. Absolutely necessary cookies ensure, for example, that when you call up the vehicle configurator, you will see a version whose bandwidth-related data volume corresponds to that of your used Internet connection. Furthermore, such cookies ensure, for example, the functionality of a change from http to https when switching pages and thus compliance with increased security requirements for data transmission. Last but not least, such a cookie also saves your decision regarding the use of cookies on our website. Your consent is not required for the use of essential cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies cannot be deactivated via the function of this page. You can always disable cookies in your browser at any time.

Consentable cookies on this website

Cookies that are not required to be able to use the website, as defined above, perform important tasks. Without these cookies, features that allow comfortable browsing on our site, such as pre-filled forms, are no longer available. Settings made by you cannot be saved and must therefore be requested again on each page. Furthermore, we no longer have the opportunity to respond to you with customized offers.

BMW also integrates third-party content into this website. Examples include the integration of YouTube videos. These third party providers may theoretically set cookies while visiting the MINI website and, for example, receive the information that you have accessed a MINI website. Please visit the third party websites for more information on their use of cookies. If you have decided not to grant or revoke your consent to the use of cookies subject to approval, you will only be offered those features of our website that we can use without these cookies. Areas of our website that potentially have the technical ability to engage third-party content and thus set third-party cookies are not available to you in this case.

*Categories

Based on what function cookies have and the purpose for which cookies are used, there are four categories of cookie: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and marketing cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies
Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, some services cannot be provided – for example, remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text and vehicle configurations) when navigating back to a page in the same session.

Functional cookies
Functional cookies enable a website to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, languages choices), so that it can offer you improved and more personalised functions. For example, a website can offer you local, price-relevant tax information if it uses a cookie to remember the region in which you are currently located. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.

Performance cookies
Performance cookies gather information about how a website is used – for example, which pages a visitor opens most often, and whether the user receives error messages from some pages. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.

Marketing cookies
Marketing cookies are used to deliver adverts and other communications more relevant to you and your interests through use of software such as Adobe Analytics. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember whether you have visited a website or not, and this information can be shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Cookies for improving group targeting and advertising will often be linked to site functionality provided by other organisations.
