Our cookie policy has information about the different types of cookies, what they do and how we use them at Skipton.

Cookies and "similar technologies"

A cookie is a small file that’s downloaded on to your computer, tablet or smartphone (device) when you visit a website.

The cookies we set are called ‘first party’ cookies, but we also use ‘third party’ cookies, which are set by a domain other than the one you are visiting. Cookies do lots of different things, like helping us to remember your preferences, showing us how our website is being used so we can make it better, and helping make sure our adverts are more relevant to you.

Our cookie policy also applies to similar technologies, which include things like scripts, tracking pixels and plugins that perform similar functions to cookies. So when we refer to ‘cookies’ in this policy, we’re referring to those ‘similar technologies’ too.

Deleting cookies

You can delete cookies, but how you do it is different from device to device. Check your browser settings to see how to delete them from yours. If you change your cookie preferences and no longer consent to some, this won’t delete those cookies from your device, but will mean they are inactive.

Essential cookies

These cookies make sure our website works properly. Some enable you to log on, some enable accessibility features and some manage your cookie preferences. They also let you move around our site and use its features.

We can’t turn them off, but you can block them in your browser settings, which will cause parts of our website not to work.

Cookies that measure

These cookies help us measure the number of visitors to our site and how they use it, so we learn what’s working and improve its performance. For example, they might show us if visitors are giving up at a certain step when completing a form. We use this information to let us try out new ideas to help us improve the experience for you.
