The customer contact details (your details) are required for these reasons.

- We need an email address so that you receive an order confirmation and receipt.
- We also use this email if you have signed up for our newsletter.
The delivery details are only required if you would like the items sent to a different address. You may be ordering from the office (in your lunch break, obviously) and would like the order to go to your home address. Or the items may be for a gift.
No paperwork is sent to the delivery address if this option is chosen. The receipt is sent to the customer email address as explained above. The Pots & Potions address will be displayed on the order sent to the delivery address, because UK items are sent by recorded delivery, and the Post Office requires a return address in the event of non-delivery.
