We do not believe in spam and will not sell or give your email address to third parties for marketing purposes except in the course of the delivery of our goods and services. If you have opted in to our newsletter service and wish to subsequently opt out, please complete the contact us form on this website, with your email address and ask us to opt out of the newsletter.
