Upcoming Site Updates

    1. Upgrading to TLS 1.2: PCI Data Security Standards require that all
      sites update to TLS 1.2 before July 2018. In preparation for this
      requirement, will disable TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1, and will
      upgrade all sites to TLS 1.2 on June 28, 2018. Learn more
    2. Converting to secure pages: is pleased to announce
      that we are going to transition from http to https for security reasons.
      In order to make sure that revenue and traffic are not affected
      negatively, we will need your assistance during this transition.
