to how many pages are being accessed on our site. While visiting our
standard web site (noted in your browser address as pages ending in

purpose of analyzing what pages are accessed, which files are
downloaded, and what errors occur. We review which top domain addresses

From time to time, we may make changes to this policy. Those changes will be reflected on this page.
Credit Card Security
you walk into a store, you know who you are dealing with. You see the
products, the branding and the store assistant. You can be sure that if
something should be wrong with your purchase, you’ll have recourse to
the store manager or owner. But on the Internet, website visitors
generally have no reliable way of knowing who owns the website (the
virtual store). When you visit a website with the intent of making an
online purchase, you should know whom you’ll be paying and have proof of
the identity of the website owner, and be confident that the personal
information you send to the website cannot be intercepted by other
Internet users. This is where SSL digital certificates come to the fore.
(Secure Socket Layer) is a protocol developed by Netscape that enables a
web browser and a web server to communicate securely; it allows the web
browser to authenticate the web server. The SSL protocol requires the
web server to have a digital certificate installed on it in order for an
SSL connection to be made.
Thanks to our SSL-enabled web server
and SSL certificate, you are assured of three things: Authentication:
The website really is owned by Emergency Training Associates. Message
privacy: Using a unique "session key", SSL encrypts all information
exchanged between you and our web server, such as credit card numbers
and other personal data, ensuring that personal information cannot be
viewed if it is intercepted by unauthorized parties. Message integrity:
The data cannot be tampered with over the Internet.
Web Beacons: We use third-party web beacons from Yahoo! to help analyze
where visitors go and what they do while visiting our website. Yahoo!
may also use anonymous information about your visits to this and other
websites in order to improve its products and services and provide
advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would
like more information about this practice and to know your choices
about not having this information used by Yahoo!, click here.
