What is the logout URL?

The logout URL is https://login.pin1.harvard.edu/pin/logout.  It is recommended that you provide a link within your application that will allow users to logout of PIN. The PIN logout page is responsible for ending a user's PIN automatic login session, in effect, logging a user out of the PIN System. You may want to consider redirecting a user to the PIN logout page when the user logs out of the application. Or you may also provide a separate link for logging out of the application and logging out of the PIN System.
