What are cookies?

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer, smartphone, tablet or other device when visiting a website or using an app. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or by the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user.

There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way, but have minor differences.

Session cookies

These are temporary cookies which only exist during the time you use the website (or more strictly, until you close the browser after using the website). Session cookies help our websites remember what you chose on the previous page, avoiding the need to re-enter the information.

Persistent cookies

These cookies stay on your device after you have visited the website until they expire or you remove them. Persistent cookies help us identify you as a returning visitor but do not contain information that could be used to identify you to another person.

How we use cookies

Below is a list of the cookies used by Arbuthnot Banking Group PLC with a description of what they are used for.

The information is not used or stored outside Arbuthnot Banking Group systems, and is held only temporarily while the user is accessing pages on the website.
