The relevant information you have provided in this registration form will be passed on to or collected by SWT and its subcontracted registration provider to secure your event registration. In processing such information, SWT and its subcontracted registration provider shall ensure that all suppliers to whom personal information is passed shall be made aware of the restrictions in using such personal information and shall only use the personal information to process any event registration arrangements in strict accordance with instructions from SWT, for the sole purpose of providing event registration arrangements for the event(s). This also applies to any sensitive information you provide such as details of any disabilities or dietary or religious requirements.
