See more details of each category by clicking on the titles above.

Though it should be clear in most cases which category is most suitable for your application, please check the Comparative Table.

Don’t worry if your needs  appear to fall into more than one category – you should make only one application for any given project, so choose one category and make clear the separate types of need within that application – if in doubt, consult the Director.
