You must read through and accept the Opt In Policy for the events which LPS Events hold. If you do not opt in, you will not be sent any event correspondance or marketing information. 

In line with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), for us to send you emails and information you are required to 'opt in'.

By choosing to opt in, you consent to us to sending you information relating to the event you have entered, and future event marketing campaings. Information will mostly be sent via email. If you provide a valid UK mobile number you will recieve a pre race text message with your race number.

If you would prefer not to opt in, we will not send you any information regarding the event and you will be responsible for checking the event page prior to the event. Please note that if we have to relay vital race information this will be emailed to you only if you opt in and uploaded to our social media accounts.

If you miss out on any race details because you have not opted in, LPS Events Ltd will not be held accountable for any details missed or incorrect information.

Please be aware that information will be regularly updated as we get closer to an event, therefor if you download a document 2 weeks prior to an event, this may be updated again 1 week before, for example.
