Cached Pages

Your computer keeps a log of the websites you visit. It also stores information those sites contain. This is called caching. Because of cached pages you run the risk to access old information. Make sure you have the latest information e.g. regarding fees and that you download the latest edition of each form.
To empty your computer’s caches Google the name of your Web Browser e.g. Firefox or Safari and ‘clear cache’ or ‘empty cache’ for specific instructions.
