Purposes and lawful basis of processing
We are collecting your data for the purpose of processing your temporary event notice. As the notice incurs a fee we will also need to process your financial information.

Your contact details may also be used for communication purposes.

We have a legal obligation to process your personal information, specifically working within the Licensing Act 2003.
