When you register yourself or your organisation as a Member of Learning Light you must provide the requested contact information and general information about you and your organisation. We will also ask you to create a Username and Password. This information allows us to maintain a Member Profile for each Member so that we have a better understanding of the needs of our Members so we can then customise preferences for each specific Member, as well as provide better Sites and more efficient methods for Users to contribute and receive information. As a registered Member you will be automatically placed on a list to receive the Learning Light email newsletter that is sent monthly to all Members. At the end of your first year as a registered Member, you will be notified that it is time to either (i) renew your membership or (ii) upgrade from one membership category to another, or (iii) to opt-out of your membership entirely.
