What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device (computer, tablet, smartphone etc) when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at:
www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu
Session and persistent cookies
Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens the browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer.
Session cookies – allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.
Persistent cookies – are stored on a users’ device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.
First and third party cookies – Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user - the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third party cookie.

Cookie disclaimer – Please read
As this site is owned and operated by me, Scott Gregory, I would like you to know that I have made every effort, not only to ensure that this website complies with the letter of the law, but with the spirit of the law too. However, despite all the research and changes to the way the site operates, there is always the possibility that an error has been made in classifying the cookies used. For this reason alone I am adding:
By using ScottsToyBox.co.uk, you agree that we can place category 2 and category 3 cookies on your device (this is known as implied consent). When making a purchase from this site, during the check-out process you have to indicate your acceptance of the “Terms & Conditions”, thereby giving your explicit consent to the placing of cookies on your device.
I would like to thank the people at Attacat Internet Marketing http://www.attacat.co.uk/ for the use of their cookie audit tool which was used after each change to the way the site works.
