Use of your email address

When you place an order on our web site, we will send a confirmation email to the address you registered with. This will NOT contain your full payment details as email is not secure.

If you have joined the free Left-Handers Club, we will send a welcome email and introductory newsletter, then further newsletters about one a month.

We definitely do NOT give, swap, rent or otherwise make our email lists available to ANY other business. Some unscrupulous businesses do select company email addresses from the web and use them as “from” addresses for their unwanted SPAM. If you receive any email that purports to be from us but is not a genuine communication related to left-handedness that you have requested from us, please forward it to
spamwatch@anythingleft-handed.co.uk and we will investigate as best we can.

    Hello I am doing my dissertation on left handedness and how it affects children’s learning. Teacher awareness. resources and strategies. I wondered if you have any information to help or can point me in the right direction? There seems to be little on this subject as opposed to WHY people are left handed.
    Thank you for your time
    Mary
