You should be aware that Application Name depends on cookies to verify your identity after signing in. If you've disabled cookies from within your browser, or if you are running third-party software that intercepts or deletes cookies, you will not be able to use Application Name to manage your accounts.

With Microsoft Internet Explorer, you have the option of ordering your browser to disable all cookie use, to accept all cookies, or to alert you every time a cookie is offered. Then you can decide whether to accept one or not.

If you have your cookies disabled, you will be presented with an ALERT page whenever you attempt to Sign-in to Application Name.

If you chose to be prompted every time a cookie is offered, you will get a number of dialog boxes after signing in asking whether you want to accept the cookie. If you answer yes to these dialog boxes, you will be allowed to use the system. If you answer no to any of these dialog boxes, you will be presented with the ALERT page.
