Caching And Acceleration Services:
This site utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.
Bunny CDN Content Distribution Network:
Similar to a cache, this site also utilizes a CDN in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. CDNs potentially store a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All CDN files are temporary, and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the CDN vendor. CDN files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator, but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary.
Spam Detection & Security Services:
Akismet Spam Detection:
We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service.
