The sign up form includes a ‘Remember me” tick box. This option stores your data, so you don’t need to sign in each time during next two weeks. After two weeks CDC will require your password again.

We strongly recommend that you to fill in all your contact data after being registered, because this will help you to use CDC services fully, such as the Jobs section and other functions. This can be done in MY/PROFILE page http://cardesigncommunity.com/my/profile A Password is the most reliable security system for your account on CDC, so please be cautious with it! In case you suspect that someone else has access to your data, change the password. Here is some advice on how to choose an effective password. Do not use plain passwords like “12345”, “qwerty”, “password” and the like. Do not use your first/last name as a password, nor date of birth – these are quite easy to guess.
A reliable password should:
- Include 6 - 20 symbols;
- Include small and capital letters;
- Include digits;
- Include punctuation marks like -!@#$%^&*()+_;
- Be equal to the login;
- Be easy to remember for you not to forget it.
You should be aware of your password and never tell it to anyone else! The administrators at CDC never send emails with a request for you to reply with your password!
