"anyone shed any light here please"

The company who protected it?

As a rule a .pdf of this nature is designed to be printed and completed in longhand.

They are asking you to send it to a postal address. So they want you to complete it by hand.

VoG™ is right. As well as getting you out of this scrape, the following maxim is good for all aspects of life: If all else fails, read the instructions!

I can only conclude that you want to enter the info 'typed' rather than completed longhand.

Therefore, print off the form;

Scan it into the computer using an OCR program;

Enter the details from the keyboard;

save and print to produce a 'printed' form for posting.
