HUSH SECURE FORMS
The information that is being submitted by the forms on this site using Hush Secure Forms is secure, because
it is encrypted prior to leaving the site, and is being submitted to a secure page.
As the Hush Secure Forms system works by securing just the form content rather than the entire page, there is no padlock visible in your browser. In order to check for yourself that the form is using a HTTPS (ie. secure) method to process the form data, you can view the form page and view the HTML source code for the page (“View” + “Source” in Internet Explorer). Within the code you will see a line including ‘form method=”post”‘ and a web address beginning with https.
