Website technical information


The SCSSC website is developed and designed using the Joomla! content management system (CMS). Joomla! is an open-source web application developed and licensed for use by Open Source Matters, Inc



When you visit SCSSC, Joomla! and some third-party extensions set one or more cookies in your browser. This is done for performance only, to enhance your browsing experience while visiting the SCSSC site. Cookies, including those that establish and track individual browsing sessions, are set on the “client side”—in your browser—and not stored on the server. References to cookies that “track” or “log” the pages you visit are done for functionality purposes to aid your browsing experience. As examples, cookies allow your browser to cache pages and images you view for faster loading in the future. Cookies also let your browser indicate to you which links you have “visited” (for links that are coded to indicate, either by color or some other style, whether you have accessed specific links or pages in the past.) 

At no time are references to “tracking,” “logging,” or “cookies” suggesting that the owners and managers of SCSSC are analyzing, scrutinizing, or collecting data on your browsing behavior.

Open Source Matters, Inc. states the following regarding Joomla! cookies: 

Joomla uses cookies to store information about a number of things. These include your session, which means it saves information on what you have done on the site during this current visit (for example what pages you have visited and whether you have logged in).

The full statement can be found on Joomla!’s documentation site:

Managing Cookies

Private / "invisible" Browsing

If cookies are a concern, consider using a browser that offers "invisible" browsing (i.e., "Private Window" in Safari, "Incognito Mode" in Chrome, or DuckDuckGo's mobile browser).
