  5. Agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy policy.
  6. The "Next" button will now turn from gray to blue when all the fields are filled in. 

If the Next button doesn't turn blue

  • This usually means that:
  1. One or more fields has been left blank, has an invalid answer. You should see a red line under the field and red text explaining the problem, or 
  2. the check box for the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy has not been checked.
  3. The Next button will not turn blue until everything is filled in.
