Frequently Asked Questions

I keep having to log into with my email address and password each time I want to enter the site, what can I do?
Some Internet browser software provides for the user to enable “private browsing” or “incognito browsing”. These settings inhibit the use of cookies and therefore the user would be prompted to log into each time they want to access the site. Eliminating these setting should resolve that problem. Another issue could be automatic cache clearing setup on your computer. This would eliminate the cookie requiring the user to log into the site if the cookie has been removed.
