At PartsPlus, we use technologies like cookies, pixels, and local storage to make our websites easier to use and to tailor content to be more relevant for you. This guide is designed to explain what cookies are; the purpose of those used on Ford websites; and the options to control them – if you decide you want to.

What is a cookie

Almost every website uses cookie technology. A cookie is a small file which a server downloads to your personal computer (PC) or mobile when you visit a website. When you next return to the site using the same device, your PC checks to see if it has a cookie that the website recognises. If it has such a cookie, it communicates with the website and enables the website to read the information held in that. This allows the site to recognise that the browser has been visited before and, in some cases, may alter the content shown to reflect this.

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how our visitors use the website. For example, it enables us to know which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only ever used to improve how our website works.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember any choices you make. This could include your user name, language or the region you are in, and provide more enhanced, and personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you’ve customised. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. They may also keep a entry of unique ID which is then used to come up with statistical data on website usage by visitors, and if logged in may collect an ID to match against our records if we have any. It is a HTTP cookie type and expires after a browsing session and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
