This year sees some changes to the world of data protection, with the introduction of GDPR and while there are lots of things going on behind the scenes with bloggers talking about the implications it will have on us, it has also raised many questions.
For anyone who knows me via my Facebook or the UK Bloggers group, you will know I have long been a fan of Rafflecopter, they have allowed me to check entries as much as possible to make sure the winner isn’t a cheat and I had my qualms about Gleam, for which I was very vocal.
With the changes of GDPR however, it got me thinking, are either of these competition entry systems going to do any moves to change to make sure they are in line with the new regulations. I reached out to both Gleam and Rafflecopter on twitter posing this question and only Gleam got back to me, in fact, they have been very good at answering the plethora of questions I have thrown their way about the old issues I had with their system. All of which seemed to have been rinsed out in the wash.
Now Rafflecopter may just be busy people, they may have no idea what GDPR is, after all, they are a US-based company. (For anyone interested, Gleam is based in Australia). Who knows! But it does leave me pondering, do I pull up my big girl pants and say hey OK Gleam won out in the end, or do I tough it out with Rafflecopter and hope as the time comes they may look to check how their application conforms with the GDPR standards.
Of course, me being me started talking about it with friends and myself and Sarah from Life In A BreakDown decided we would pose the question to you, which application do you like best Rafflecopter or Gleam and for the next two weeks will be offering a prize of £25 Amazon vouchers both via a Rafflecopter giveaway and a Gleam giveaway asking you, our readers.
This week we are staying original and keeping with Rafflecopter, to enter you just need to answer the poll and the question which is simply asking what you would like to see from our respective blogs this year, it could be a prize, a written series or a certain review.
