We try to take suggestions from our users on how we can make our sites easier to use and navigate. Many users felt more comfortable using an email that is not from one of the providers we offer. Other consumers may have already had an account with us previously and would prefer to utilize it. We listened to our users and tried to provide a more flexible and inclusive process when registering.
Not at all, if you sign-in with your previously used email/password you will be prompted to verify that all of your information is still current. Once you have confirmed your information the process is complete. If you choose to change your associated email account you will be prompted to verify this new email so we can be sure that you receive any of the newsletters and communications you have signed up for.
Some providers do not supply all of the information that our site requires to complete registration (for example, your date of birth). The "Create Your Profile" page allows you to complete the necessary data and agree to our site’s Terms of Service.
If the user name you have used already exists in our system, you will not be able to sign on with it. For your convenience, we will prompt you with available user names.
In the case of providers, only certain providers will share your e-mail address. If you register with one that doesn’t, we have to verify that the e-mail address you have given is valid. This is to ensure that you receive all information that you might sign up for and is a means of communicating information to you from time to time. Once you have received your verification e-mail, you simply click on the provided link and your registration will be complete. In the case of using Internal Sign-on, we do this to make sure you are who you say you are. This is a precautionary measure to give you the best experience possible.
