Strict security procedures are followed whenever your information is obtained and stored. Encryption technology is also used to keep the information submitted via the online contact forms secure. Encryption codes information to make it virtually impossible for someone else to read unless they have a key to decipher it.

Open emails are not secure and third parties may be able to intercept, access or alter any information you send via email. Skipton Building Society is not responsible for and cannot accept liability for any damage resulting from open email messages sent to or received by the Society. If you send us an email please keep the amount of confidential information you include to a minimum.
If you make an enquiry via email, we will take steps to check your identity before giving out any personal information.
Emails, alleging to be from UK banks and building societies, have been sent encouraging people to visit fraudulent websites, to invest money and reveal personal details. This is commonly known as ‘phishing’. Skipton Building Society, or companies within the Skipton Building Society group, will never send emails asking for confidential information or security details and you should not respond to emails asking you to reveal such information. We wish to remind customers to be vigilant and if you are unsure or concerned about any communication that seems to be from Skipton Building Society, please call our helpline on 0345 850 1700*.
We regularly review our security procedures.
