might be worthwhile checking into the regulations for 2nd hand
dealers...it's distantly possible that we may be regarded as one because
we accept second-hand goods and distribute them to others.

AFAIK, 2nd hand dealers have to see ID when they buy something and
they have to keep a register of who sold them what. cops can view this
register whenever they want.

if that doesn't apply to us then we should only release details when a
court order tells us to do so.

court order. warrants would rarely be specific enough to include
searching your computerised or other records.
