    ONLINE ENTRY IS CHANGING

    Message on the TAB website:
    From the latest competition (magazines on sale from 29th March 2018 onwards) we are changing the way you enter and you will no longer need to login to submit your answers, just simply enter your details at the top of the coupon. If you are submitting answers to older competitions you will still need to sign in.

    Posters please note:- the format of the direct links to entry forms is changing for mags on sale from 29th March. If any regular poster has difficulty finding the direct link then send me a PM and I will help.

    That's a bit of a palaver isn't it? For each comp you have to enter your name, address, email, choose whether to opt in to things, agree to the terms and conditions. It'll take forever when there are a lot of comps to enter.

    Sorry to bump but I think this is relevant to all regular compers. The reason for this and also why a lot of regular email subscriptions are getting you to confirm your details is that new data protection laws come in next month.

    The Data Protection Act (DPA) will be replaced by the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a framework with greater scope and much tougher punishments for those who fail to comply with new rules around the storage and handling of personal data. Therefore I suspect in order to comply a lot of firms will be changing entry methods.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Data_Protection_Regulation

    I'm sure Martin and the team will be a lot more clued up on this, but hopefully this will help people understand why they are changing competition entry forms.

    Direct link for comp above if you're already logged in ...
    https://competitions.puzzlemagazines.co.uk/competitions/SUT1804

    It seems that if you're already logged in and you look for the comp in the list it will take you to the page where you just have to enter the answer rather than having to enter all your details again. What the new instruction seem to mean is that you don't have to log in to enter the comps you can just enter your details without logging in, but if you are logged in then you can enter the same way as you did before.
    I hope that's the case for everyone anyway, and not just for me when I tried this morning.

    hi, personally I find it quicker & easier to enter them without
    logging in as RoboForm fills in all details & just have
    to tick the t&c's.

    Win £750 - Answer = PETAL


    (from 22/02)
    I will not be able to post TAB Mini Arrow Word Search Mix this month. The magazine is not widely available - the only place I have found it on sale is the large branch of WH Smiths in my town centre. Unfortunately, the building housing WH Smiths is falling down and they have moved to a temporary shop that is much smaller. This means they have cut down on the range of mags for sale and MAWS is one of the victims.
    Originally posted by One-Eye
    My WH Smith have sorted it out and are now stocking the magazine again so I will resume posting.
    Thanks to Tigercub_uk for posting the previous two issues and for the other offers of help.
