Can I download all my data?

Important: downloading data is not the same as deleting your data. If you need your data to be deleted permanently, please contact the program organisers..

You can download all data held about you in an Award Force program through your user profile. To do so:

  1. Click on your name at the top right corner of the page
  2. Choose Profile
    Profile option in drop-down
  3. On the resulting profile page, click the Download my data... button

An email will be sent to your address with a password and a link to download a zip file of your data. The file will be removed after 48 hours and the link will no longer work. In this case, you will need to request the download again by going to your profile.

The zip file will contain all of your entries, including attachments. Since the file contains personal information, it is encrypted and password protected. You will need an advanced unzipping application to open it. For Windows we recommend using 7-Zip and for Mac we recommend The Unarchiver.

Once the application has been installed, right-click on the file and choose Open with which will let you select the newly-installed application.
