If  BritishWildlife.newsletter=1 means the customer has opted in otherwise if its  BritishWildlife.newsletter=0 then no details should be sent, so the data should read as "Anonymous"

Please advise
thanks for any help

So, basically you want to print ALL users, but put different data for name etc by a flag. I attached a revised version of your query.
What I did was put a "Case" condition before the first name and last name, so we will output them only if BritishWildlife.newsletter = 1. Also, I canged the inner join to BritishWildlife into left join, so you will get ALL users in your system.

HTH
SELECT DISTINCT 
                      TOP (100) PERCENT 
					dbo.GiftCertificate.GiftCodeID, 
					dbo.GiftCertificate.CustID, 
					dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegTitle, 
					(
						CASE WHEN BritishWildlife.newsletter = 1 THEN dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegFirstName
						ELSE 'Anonymous'
						END
					) AS CertRegFirstName,
					(
						CASE WHEN BritishWildlife.newsletter = 1 THEN dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegLastName
						ELSE 'Anonymous'
						END
					) AS CertRegLastName,
					dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegAddr1, 
					dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegAddr2, 
					dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegAddr3, 
                    dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegCity, 
					dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegCounty, dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegPostCode,  
                    dbo.Country.CountryName, 
					dbo.GiftCertificateHistory.GiftHistDateAdded AS DateReg
FROM         
					dbo.GiftCertificate 
INNER JOIN
                    dbo.GiftCertificateHistory ON dbo.GiftCertificate.GiftCodeID = dbo.GiftCertificateHistory.GiftCodeID 
INNER JOIN
                    dbo.Country ON dbo.GiftCertificate.CertRegCountryID = dbo.Country.CountryID 
LEFT JOIN
					BritishWildlife on giftcertificate.giftcodeid = BritishWildlife.giftcodeid	
 
WHERE     (dbo.GiftCertificate.GiftCodeID 
			IN
                          (SELECT     GiftCodeID
                            FROM          dbo.GiftCertificateHistory AS GiftCertificateHistory_1
                            WHERE      (StatusID = 'REGISTERED'))) 
			AND 
 
			(dbo.GiftCertificate.CurrentStatusID <> 'LIVE') AND 
                      (dbo.GiftCertificateHistory.StatusID = 'REGISTERED')
