    Competition Ts & Cs should include full disclosure of what information, from social media, is harvested by Gleam and what they will do with it.

    Probably just including a link to Gleam's privacy policy would likely be enough: https://gleam.io/privacy

    don't have facebook, dont have instagram, dont have twitter.

    wish these sort of competitions would just die, hexus can manage to run a competition in a sensible way, why cant anyone else?

    The only entry on the list that requires a social media account is the Twitter one.
    You don't need Facebook or Instagram for this competition, it says to just visit their pages not to login and follow/like them.

    The word 'visit' is right there on the button. I'm not sure what could be clearer unless you pack the definition of 'visit' onto the button too, though that may become unweildy and make the CSS cry.

    the HEXUS one that mentions visiting the sponsor on Facebook, visiting HEXUS on Facebook and giving another entry on Facebook? The one that has a ton of back end code I have to maintain? No thanks. I'll stick to the gleam one that takes less than 5 minutes to create.

    "I really hate the way you give away free stuff!"

    You know what then, why don't you buy a bit-tech t-shirt?

    Technically not free as we are providing a service to them:

    Bit-tech and BeQuiet are buying page views from us so the algorithms of the social media sites in question are more likely to promote them.

    You mean to say a company has a reason for running a competition other than a pure desire to give people things for free?!:lol:

    Very nice case. It fits well to be used on many mods.

    @MLyons can I suggest making an email specific for competitions maybe with it stated on the competition pages so that it can be added to any filters, I almost missed mine as it went to junk. Dunno who'd deal with that, or if it's a good idea, but I thought you might be able to point it to the right people if it is.
