Information we collect
Some information we collect is required by the site in 'session cookies'. These simply contain a long string of numbers and letters and correspond uniquely to each user. This allows the site to track the visitor around the site and keep a record of any choices that user has made. If some form of tracking were not possible on web sites it would not be possible to, for example, add products to shopping baskets, stay logged in to a web site or hide the cookies message from users who have agreed.
Although some functionality requires cookies on our web site it is possible to control which cookies are accepted from any given web site. Please see the following link for further information:
