3. Multiple Pages

You can save multiple different pages using the same email address but different passwords. This may be helpful for someone who uses LOOK to read different things, for example a child who needs different passages loaded for different subjects at school. The password names could reflect the text - some people find passwords easier than others, do whatever works for you.

Security

Your email address will only be saved for you to access your page. It will not be shared with anyone or used for any other purpose.

If you wish to subscribe to CVI Scotland's mailing list, you will need to separately sign up here. You do not need to be on our mailing list to use LOOK.

Accounts not accessed for over six months will be deleted.
