Check your Activity Log to print a copy of your
form or to learn if we have received it.
Close your browser program when you are ready to
end your Web session.
This clears your password and secure connection.
- The web form server stores the information you enter under the
private username and password you establish.
You do not have to complete a form in one sitting.
For example, you can start working on a web form at your library's computer facility,
save your work, access the form at home on your personal computer, and continue
working from there. Wherever you have access to the Web, you have access
to the information you have saved.
When you complete more than one form, common information
you provided on the first form is entered automatically in all subsequent
forms. For example, if you have entered your name and address on a
form and saved it, that information will be entered automatically on the
next online form you access (assuming, of course, that the next form also
has name and address fields). Also, if you change the information on one
form, it is changed on all others.
Your data are transmitted securely over the Internet. The information
you enter is encrypted and secure when you save it and when you send it.
Although general data collected on the system may be used in statistical
studies and reports designed to assist institutions with planning, any
information bearing your personal identification is disclosed only to the
department to which you send it.
When you save or transmit form information, a note appears in
your Activity Log. You can easily check your Activity Log at any time
to see your form activity and to learn when we have acknowledged
receipt of your form.
