Lafferty Group recognises that your privacy is important. The information you submit will be kept confidential and secure and processed in accordance with the provisions of the UK Data Protection Act 1998. Lafferty Group will use the information to process your request and to provide any relevant further information (for example key facts and details about the event, information regarding additional related services, etc.).
