I will look after it in the same way I would want mine looking after, keeping it secure! I will only share it with others where I need their help us deliver our service to you (such as our professional printing laboratory who may need your name and address to post your purchases). Be assured that I will never share your information in any other circumstances – nor will I sell it on elsewhere!
