International Cookie Compliance

Meeting the requirements of every country can prove difficult and potentially impossible due to legal conflicts. Scored Films may choose to block sales to select countries at our sole discretion, however it is generally very easy to use online proxy websites to access blocked purchases from a different country and this is commonly available knowledge if searching for a way to purchase blocked products. If this Site is not compliant with your country's legal requirements, you are not authorized to use the Site or to purchase products and we encourage you to delete your cookies and cache before leaving the Site. While we strongly believe in respecting your privacy, most usage of cookies is out of our control, due to the complexities, platforms, dependencies, and security needs of modern web development. Our research revealed that many options are outdated, unreliable, defunct, or not cross-platform enough to meet the standards of every country.
