How Do I move footer copyright text to valign middle in footer widget?

Hello - on our site http://www.wearecovalent.com, if scroll to the bottom footer widget, you'll see a logo of our parent company and some text reading:

"All Rights Reserved © 2014 Proud Member of E3 Media "

We would like to "valign middle" so that this text is vertically aligned in the middle of the logo. In other words we want to move it down about a centimeter or so. Could you help provide the CSS for this?

Also, could you help provide the CSS so that we can make the font size a little bigger as well as make the text white and the link text white with an underline upon hovering? Thanks so much ive been trying a bunch of CSS but just can't seem to get it right.

Best,

AD
