This is an independent business ran solely by myself and I hate spam just as much as you do. I also love knowing my info is secure when shopping online! That being said, you should rest assured knowing that I do not ever disclose your info to any 3rd party. Your email address is only used so that you can get updates on your order, and also for the newsletter, if you have opted in to receive it. I rarely ever send out a newsletter (maybe once every 2-3 months at most). I have modified my shopping cart system so that it only asks for your name, email, and country when signing up. This is so the system knows how to give you the proper shipping rate, and to let you know the status of your order. Your full address is only required once you have moved on to the secure payment page, which is ran on PayPal's encrypted server. So, long story short, Violet Moonchild is a safe place to shop and I respect your privacy.
