Customer Profiles

When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours.

Even if you switch computers, you won't have to re-register – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.
