What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small snippet of text that a website asks your browser to store. All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser. Cookies can be removed in two ways: automatically, when they expire, or when you manually delete them. We’ve included more details below to help you understand what kinds of cookies we use.

What are session and persistent cookies?
- Session cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. An example of how we use session cookies is to grant access to content and enable posting (things you have to log in to do).
- Persistent cookies – these usually have an expiration date far into the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. An example of how we use persistent cookies is for functionalities like the ability to “Stay logged in” and not have to enter your login details each time you post an ad. We also use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the site for our customers. This information is anonymized – when we look at the data, in other words, we look at patterns, but we do not see individuals’ personally identifiable information (PII).
We use different kinds of cookies for various reasons outlined below. All cookie information is completely anonymised ie we do not see individuals personal information.
There are also limited third-party cookies on the site. These cookies could be session or persistent and are set by entities other than Skipthegames. For example, we currently allow:
- Essential cookies – these cookies are all first party cookies that are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify existing posters, and allow them access to their user accounts where they may post new ads, or see their ad viewership statistics.
- Functional cookies – these cookies remember your log-in details if you do not log out, which makes it possible for registered users to return to the site and access their account without having to log in.
In addition, we use functional cookies for Audience measurement and validation. We use Google Analytics to understand how many people visit us and what is popular, which helps us improve the website.
