If this situation applies we will get in contact with you to explain how we wish to use your data and to ask for your consent. Where we obtain your consent to process your personal data we record this consent under Poynton Show administration procedures.

You are not required to give consent just because we ask for it. If you do give consent you can change your mind and withdraw it at a later date by contacting the Show Office at any time without detriment to you.
