Skyline requires that cookies are enabled. A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on a user's hard drive. It can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which tell a web site when the user has returned. Skyline uses cookies to identify users as they navigate around the website. When a user logs in a cookie is sent to the user’s PC or Mac. If cookies are disabled, users will not be able to order documents through Skyline.

Skyline needs two types of cookies, normal cookies to identify the user and session cookies. Without cookies, websites have no memory. A cookie, like a key, enables swift passage from one place to the next. Without a cookie every time you open a new web page Skyline will treat you like a completely new visitor. Skyline uses session cookies to ensure that you are recognized when you move from page to page within the site and that any information you have entered is remembered. For example, if Skyline did not use session cookies then items placed in the shopping basket would disappear by the time you reach the checkout.

You can configure which sites are allowed to set cookies, how long to keep them for, and view and manage your existing cookies.
