This record may include names, addresses, email addresses and whether or not you wish to receive more information about the campaign and it's progress. All personal information collected will be deleted or destroyed after the Welsh Parliamentary elections in 2021.

Personal information about registered supporters will be kept for the duration of that support and for up to 90 days after registration ends, unless consent has been given for this information to be kept for a longer specified period.
