GSI Universal Login
GSI offers visitors a universal login in which visitors are requested to provide both personal information and preferences. This information is stored and protected by your user-established User ID and Password. There is an additional "Remember Me" option that allows you to be recognized (by your user-designated name or alias) when returning to any GSI Web site in the future. Acceptance of this option allows GSI to place a log file (cookie) that contains only enough information to identify you upon return visits. This eliminates the need to continually ask you for the same information. This cookie contains no personal information, with the exception of your name or alias that you previously provided.
No information, other than that found in the cookie, will be accessed by any GSI system. Access to your user information always requires both your User ID and Password.
