How to Use the App

Register and Log In
You will be required to register and log into the app (one time log-in). Your modifications to the app will be stored in a secured database. This allows you to restore your own data on a new device. This also allows multiple users to use the app on a single device; simply log out and log in with another ID.

Your data will never be shared with any other organization. At any time, you can delete your user ID. This will delete your ID and the data associated with your ID. Once deleted, your ID and data cannot be recovered. You will, however, be able to register that ID again in the future.
