How do I...

Using the link in the e-mail you can set your unique username and password (passwords must have between 8 and 16 characters and include a minimum of one letter and one number). 

All accounts must be validated.  Users will receive an e-mail from and must click on the link contained in the e-mail.  There is a 24 hour time limit to complete validation. Once the limit expires it will be necessary to start the procedure again by creating a new account.  Please check your spam folder in case you cannot find the e-mail in your regular inbox.

The username that you entered when verifying your account registration is definitive and cannot be modified.  The username must not contain special symbols ( * @ (  ) &  #  ^  etc.) or blank spaces.

To change your password after initial validation, go to the Change Password page. Enter your existing password and new password and submit the form.  Passwords must have between 8 and 16 characters and include a minimum of one letter and one number
