How should I clear cookies and cache?

Each time you access a web page through your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc), the browser caches (i.e., stores) it, so it doesn't have to keep retrieving the same files or images from the remote web site each time you click Back or Forward. If you experience any slowness or issues, it might help to clear the cookies and cache for Castor EDC. You don't have to clear all cookies and cache - it is also possible to select for which specific web page you would like to clear cookies and cache, e.g. data.castoredc.com.
