The PA-ID is your personal account that you register for free at European Pike Association.
In short, this is due to the new privacy regulation GDPR. We have developed the new process to make sure we don't collect or process more personal details than necessary.
Nothing, it is free.
You need it when signing up a team, it is used instead of your name, email, phone etc. For you to avoid spreading your unprotected personal data, and for us to minimize collecting and processing personal data we have changed the sign up process to required the EPA-ID. Due to this extra step of first registering an individual EPA-ID, then using this EPA-ID when signing up your team, no unauthorized person (ie someone who you didn't personally give your EPA-ID to) can sign you up for a team. Additionally, the person signing up the team does not need access to your unprotected personal details to add you to the team line up.
No, you can only register one EPA-ID. If you already have an EPA-ID, you use that when signing up a team. Your EPA-ID can be used to sign up to any competition that has joined Pike Association.
When registering an PA-ID at Pike Association you submit the same mobile phone number that you submitted when you purchased the pre-pay from us. When signing up your team the pre-pay discount is calculated for any participants who has purchased pre-pay.
If you pay before 3pm on a banking day, they payment is on our account after 4pm the following banking day. If you pay after 4pm, it takes two banking days. We try to process the payment the same night, but sometimes it takes another day. To be certain your payment reaches us on time make sure to pay at least two banking days before the competition. After we have processed your payment you will recieve a checkin email.
