Pop-Up Blocker:

In some cases the CCG will utilize pop-up windows to display information. These windows may be blocked from view by pop-up blockers.

There are many third party applications that block pop-up ads. While these applications are very useful for general Web browsing, they may interfere with CCG’s Web site preventing information to be displayed. Turn these applications off when viewing the CCG Web site.

Internet browsers that we support have built in pop-up blocking abilities. If this function is turned on while navigating commonwealthcornerstone.org, then some information may be blocked. Please turn these functions off while viewing the CCG Web site.

The CCG ensures that while visiting commonwealthcornerstone.org, our Web site will not generate pop-up ads from third parties. Clicking on an external link will take the visitor outside of the commonwealthcornerstone.org domain and, therefore, pop-up ads are possible and not the responsibility of commonwealthcornerstone.org.
