    • Allow cookies at the beginning of a each session by clicking "Continue" on the grey bar at the top of the screen that says: "We use cookies to enhance your experience on our website. By clicking 'continue' or by continuing to use our website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies. You can change your cookie settings at any time."
  • Log out completely after finishing your session. This will allow the next user to immediately access the database; if you don’t click the “log out” button, it may take up to 10 minutes for the previous session to clear.
  • Only open one browser page per session. Multiple tabs are allowed, but multiple browser windows will be logged as separate sessions and will cause concurrency limits to be filled quickly.
