How can I control cookies?
At homefocussupport.org.uk, we take the security and privacy of our visitors seriously. That's why we use HTTPS on our contact forms to ensure that any information you submit is encrypted and secure.
What is HTTPS?
HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) is a protocol for secure communication over the internet. It is the secure version of HTTP, which is the standard protocol used to transmit data between a web server and a web browser.
How does HTTPS work?
HTTPS uses SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) encryption to protect data as it is transmitted between a web server and a web browser. When you submit information through our contact form, it is encrypted using SSL/TLS before it is sent over the internet. This makes it much more difficult for anyone to intercept or read your information.
Why is HTTPS important for contact forms?
Contact forms often require users to submit sensitive information, such as their name, email address, phone number, and sometimes even payment information. Without HTTPS, this information could be intercepted by hackers or other malicious actors, potentially leading to identity theft, fraud, or other types of harm.
By using HTTPS on our contact forms, we can ensure that any information you submit is secure and protected from unauthorized access.
How can I tell if a website is using HTTPS?
When you visit a website that uses HTTPS, you will see a padlock icon in the address bar of your web browser. You may also see the letters "https" at the beginning of the website's URL. If you do not see these indicators, the website may not be using HTTPS and any information you submit could be at risk.
