Troubleshooting Tips

Can't log-on? It may be because of a pop-up blocker or firewall.

  1. Pop-Ups: Our website uses Pop-Up windows in important places, such as the Log ON page. If you've had problems getting our Log ON page you may have a Pop-Up blocker or Firewall that could be suppressing our Pop-Up windows. We understand the desire to block Pop-Up advertisements, but Pop-Ups are necessary for the correct working of SBDS.

    Pop-up blockers or firewalls may be available from many sources and applications (internet providers, xxxx, etc.). If you have a Pop-Up blocker, or firewall on your computer, you may want to consider disabling it while using our website, or contacting the respective company to learn what settings you can change to allow our Pop-Up windows to appear successfully.

We suggest that you contact your Firewall company about how to allow our cookies and Pop-Up windows to reach your computer.
