Cookies are text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages, which we use to keep track of what you have in your basket, and to remember you when you return to our site. So what are they and why do we use them?
What are Cookies
To order products on galttoys.com, you need to have cookies enabled - see the section on Managing cookies. If you don't wish to enable cookies, you'll still be able to browse the site and use it for research purposes.
Most web browsers have cookies enabled, but see Managing cookies for help to turn them on should you need to.
Please note that cookies can't harm your computer. We don't store personally identifiable information such as credit card details in cookies we create, but we do use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the site. For example, they help us to identify and resolve errors, or to determine relevant related products to show you when you're browsing.
We do have relationships with carefully-selected and monitored suppliers who may also set cookies during your visit to be used for remarketing purposes - in other words to show you different products and services based on what you appear to be interested in. If you'd like to opt out, please go to the Network Advertising Initiative website (opens in a new window - please note that we're not responsible for the content of external websites).
Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default.
If you enable it, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn't tracked, for example by third party ad or social networks, or analytic companies. You can opt out of tracking and analytics on this website by changing your settings in the Managing Cookies section on this page.
At present no industry-wide uniform standard has been agreed and adopted to determine how DNT requests should be managed, so our website doesn’t currently respond to DNT requests. Until that standard is established, we'll continue to review DNT and other new technologies, but won't respond to DNT requests.
We're giving you this information as part of our initiative to both comply with legislation, and make sure we're honest and clear about your privacy when using our website. We know you'd expect nothing less from us, and please be assured that we're working on a number of other privacy and cookie-related improvements to the website.
Our Cookies Policy
To make full use of the online shopping and personalised features on GaltToys.com, your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies, as we can only provide you with certain personalised features of this website by using them.
Our cookies don't store sensitive information such as your name, address or payment details: they simply hold the 'key' that, once you're signed in, is associated with this information.
However, if you'd prefer to restrict, block or delete cookies from GaltToys.com, or any other website, you can use your browser to do this.
Each browser is different, so check the 'Help' menu of your particular browser (or your mobile phone's handset manual) to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Here's a list of the main cookies we use, and what we use them for. You'll find information about 3rd party cookies here.
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Third Party (Other Site's) Cookies
In addition to the above cookies, the following sites may set their own cookies whilst browsing our site.
These cookies will generally only be set if you are signed in to (or have been signed into) a matching account and are generally linked to the use of the Social Media 'like' buttons embedded on our site and many others throughout the web. The use of these cookies is likely to have been detailed in each of the platform's Terms and Conditions or Privacy Policies. For a refresher on these policies we've included links below:

We also make use of the Google AdWords remarketing campaigns. This allows us to entice visitors back to our site by specifically targeting them with display advertising.
In order to do this, we make use of AdWords remarketing tags which set information within a doubleclick.net cookie. Doubleclick.net is the domain that serves ads for Google's Display Network. Google serve their ads based on a visitor's interests and you can find out more information by visiting the following links:
We also use Google's doubleclick.net cookie for conversion tracking purposes, to track the performance of our AdWords campaigns.
If you visit certain pages on our website within 30 days of clicking on one of our ads, Google (And James Galt & Company Ltd) will be able to tell that your visit was a result of a click on one of these ads.
In addition to this, user behaviour on our website may be used to build custom audiences for our own Facebook advertising purposes (for example, we may want to show you an ad on Facebook if you visited our site, looked at a few pages but didn't get in touch with us).
The following links have more information on Facebook's interest-based advertising and how to opt out:
Microsoft Bing Ads cookies are also used for both remarketing and conversion tracking purposes, to aid the performance of our online advertising campaigns.
