Just what is FAQ? I've seen it on the Internet several times but
I've never understood what it stood for. What is FAQ and why does
our organization have these letters? FAQ is an acronym for
Frequently Asked Questions. It's basically questions that most
people are going to ask if they want to know about your web site and
Our organization has a FAQ in order to give you some background
information and insight into our organization. The FAQ is linked
from virtually every single page on our whole web site. If you
scroll down the page and look on the left column you will see a
button with a question mark. Click on the button and you will be
hyperlinked to our FAQ web page.
You will learn about the formation of our organization and it's
history. You can find out who are our partners and learn about our
basic policies. Most of the frequently asked questions can be found
here but if you have more please let us know. Contents of this
