What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
 
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Scarborough Borough Council) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (for example, like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and when it visits certain other websites.
 

Why do we use cookies?

We only use first party cookies. These cookies are required for technical reasons for our websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. We use Plausible Analytics to track overall trends in the usage of our websites. No cookies are used, and no personal data is collected. Plausible Analytics collects only aggregated information, which does not allow us to identify any visitor to our website. For more information, please visit the Plausible Analytics Data Policy.
 
The specific types of first party cookies served through our websites and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit).
