Consent only needs to be given once

Students/parents only need to submit their consent once. Every subsequent time they use the form they can state that they have already given consent in a previous submission. This saves


Consent change and retrospective consent

Obviously students/parents can choose to change their consent level at any time and maintain the right to be forgotten and have all their data deleted from Puzzle of the Week's records. Each week they are emailed a summary of their data and a link to our consent change form which can be used to edit their level of consent or to ask to be forgotten.
