How does Goodyear use cookies?

We use three different types of cookies on the Goodyear website:


Analytics cookies
Whenever you visit a Goodyear website, web analytics software creates an anonymous cookie that tells us if you have visited the site before. This type of cookie helps us track how many people are visiting the site, where they are coming from, and what pages they are viewing. We use this data to see how pages are performing and to find ways to improve them.
Analytics cookies are used only to gather statistical data and cannot be used to identify individuals.  


Site performance cookies
Some cookies are used to remember your preferences for tools or features that you interact with on our site. For example, if you use our tire finder, we use a cookie to remember your tire size so that you don’t need to re-enter your details each time you visit. 
These cookies do not collect any personal information. 


Geo-targeting cookies
We use geo-targeting cookies to help display relevant content for your region. These cookies use information from your web browser to determine where you are visiting from. When you use our dealer locator, a cookie helps to identify your location so that you don’t need to type it in.
