About this cookies policy
Why should you read this cookies policy?
It explains what these cookies and the technology behind are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the site again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.
By doing so, cookies help you to save you time or tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page.
For example, if you personalize pages on our websites or register for a certain subscription, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information from previous visits. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customized features without having to fill in your data over and over again.
Cookies help us to be more user-friendly.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Great Scott!) are called ‘first party cookies‘. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called ‘third party cookies‘. Third-party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like analytics, advertising, and interactive content). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. Examples of third parties are Google and Facebook.
We use these first-party and third-party cookies for a variety of reasons.
Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate. We refer to these as ‘Strictly Necessary Cookies‘.
Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our website visitors to enhance the experience on our websites and provide better and more relevant services.
For example, Great Scott! keeps track of the pages you visit within our website, in order to determine what portion of the Great Scott! website is the most popular or most used. This data is used to optimize our marketing plan, deliver customized content and promotions within the website to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular topic.
Third parties serve cookies through our website for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. You can read more about this below.

These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our websites and services are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our websites for you.
These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.
