This consists of the customer's name and address, and the products purchased. We do not send details of the credit card number, only confirmation that the payment was authorised. It is our policy only to send email upon specific request. For example, we will send an email following a query made by yourself, if and only if you request a reply. And in the cases where you need to be advised of the progress of your orders.
