We use the data with which you provide us to process and fulfil your order or to respond to your query without soliciting specific consent from you to do so. Once the contract between you and us has been fulfilled or your query dealt with, we retain your data for as long as we are required to by the provisions of taxation and commercial law, but your data is locked and cannot be used for any other purposes unless you provide express permission for us to make further use of your data.
