Website Hosting

Our website is hosted on servers contracted through an outside provider (Trivera Interactive).  Information submitted to our site is processed by their web servers. That information is stored by Trivera personnel who agree to abide by our privacy policy.

Website and Server Security

To ensure that this service remains available to all users, this computer system employs software programs to monitor network traffic, to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, and to prevent denial of service attacks or other attacks intended to cause damage. Unauthorized modification of any information stored on this system may result in criminal prosecution.

Certain accredited or approved outside parties have been granted limited FTP access to areas of our web servers that host our website for the purpose of updating other websites hosted on the same servers. That limited access allows for upload and modification of web files to those accounts only (HTML pages, images, and documents) but does not allow access to directories where executable files are stored. The ability to install and run executable files (anything that could crash the server or compromise its operation and security) is reserved exclusively for the developers of our website (Trivera employees).

Third-party Cookies

In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-parties’ cookies to report usage statistics of the website, deliver advertisements on and through the website, and so on.
