What's in it for me?

Today, CoverYourASP membership gains you very little. Of course the code I wrote to manage site membership is not wasted - you get that for free like all my source.

One thing you can do though - and it's fun to try - you can personalize the front page of the site.

How does this affect my privacy?

It doesn't. Although your email address is used during your registration I don't use it to send you emails (apart from two: when you register and when you delete your membership - see below).

This means that to be kept up-to-date with member services as they are improved you need to subscribe to my newsletter.

You can also read my privacy statement, but the fact is that I don't store any information about what individual members do on the site.

Signing in

To sign in, click the Sign In link at the top of any CoverYourASP page.

When you sign in to CoverYourASP, you gain access to special features or personalization options. If you select the "Sign me in automatically on this computer" option, you remain signed in to CoverYourASP all the time on that computer - even if you shut it down and come back later - until you explicitly sign out by clicking the Sign Out link at the top of any page. If you do not select this option, you are automatically signed out of CoverYourASP when you close your browser. For more information about this option, see “Sign me in automatically on this computer” below.

Signing out

To sign out, click the Sign Out link at the top of any CoverYourASP page.

If you did not select the "Sign me in automatically on this computer" option when you signed in, you are automatically signed out of CoverYourASP when you close your browser. For more information about this option, see “Sign me in automatically on this computer” below.

When you sign out of CoverYourASP, all CoverYourASP-related cookies are deleted from the computer you are using.

“Sign me in automatically on this computer” option

When you sign in to CoverYourASP on a public or shared computer (such as in a library or cyber café), do not select the "Sign me in automatically on this computer" option on the Sign In page. When you are finished, make sure you sign out by either clicking the Sign Out link at the top of any page or by closing every instance of the browser. When you sign out, all CoverYourASP-related personal information is deleted from the computer.

If you are the only one who uses your computer, or if you're not concerned about keeping private information from the others who use your computer (such as your spouse), you can select the "Sign me in automatically on this computer option" on the Sign In page. For your convenience, this option keeps you signed in to CoverYourASP at all times from the computer you are using - even if you disconnect from the Internet, close your browser, or turn off the computer. To sign out and remove all CoverYourASP-related cookies from the computer, click the Sign Out link at the top of any CoverYourASP page.

Confirming your email address

Before you can either become a member or delete your membership I make you confirm the action by email. This is done so that I can be sure that the person asking for the action to be taken is who they say they are!
