Users can use a web app to submit content without having to create an account (similar to pastebin, imgur, and jsfiddle). If the site's cookie is cleared, they can no longer edit previously entered data. Users can associate content with an email address, to obtain the ability to edit even after clearing their cookies.
I am looking for a concise, non-technical phrase that denotes this mechanism. Ideas include:
- Save data.
- Save your data.
- Save to an account.
- Save data to an account.
- Add data to an account.
- Add data to your account.
- Log in to retain data editability.
- Associate data with your email address.
For example, if the site allowed users to enter public domain sheet music, a phrase might be, "Save your sheet music."
The word "Save" implies that the information isn't saved, which is not technically true. The information is saved, but if the cookie is cleared there is no way to make further changes to the document.
Additionally, an account is already created when the user first visits the site, so there is no "registration" process, per se. Users are unaware that an account has been created on their behalf, so telling them to associate their content with an account relies on a false assumption of knowledge.
How would you communicate this idea of saved-but-possibly-uneditable-data to users who have no concept of cookies?
