Different rules apply depending on whether the company you’re buying from is based within the EU or not. See the HM Revenues & Customs link in the Related Links section at the end of this guide for details of the taxes and duties that can apply.
The main point about an SSL certificate is that it creates trust between you & people browsing your website. An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer) is the most widely deployed security protocol used today. It basically provides a secure channel between 2 machines operating over the internet.
Because HTTP doesn’t authenticate the web server in the same way HTTPS does, it’s also possible that a secure HTTPS site pulling in a script from an HTTP site could be tricked into pulling an attacker’s script and running it on the otherwise secure site. When HTTPS is used, you have more assurances that the content was not tampered with and is legitimate.
Ah, thank you both! I did notice that Firefox is ok with Chase security after asking the question. So, at least I know I can feel more secure by using a different browser AND I will check to see if my Chrome is up to date as well.
Each decision has its own color and shape. The colors stimulate emotions such as acceptance or warning, and the shapes aid those who cannot perceive color strongly or in design situations where color is limited.

With encryption, you are able to hide communications from a hacker but you cannot stop them from intercepting communications and posing as your website to steal information from your customers. As people move away from brick and mortar stores and increase their online shopping and banking habits, consumers have to be able to trust they are visiting the true website of the store they are shopping on. This is more difficult to prove online.
Copy the first block of text. You’ll need this “CSR” to give to the SSL cert issuer so they can establish your identity. Login to your NameCheap account (or wherever you bought your certificate) and activate it. Paste your CSR and any other fields needed. It will ask you for an approver email. This is an email address that proves you own the domain, ie email@example.com. If it doesn’t exist, you’ll need to create it so you can get the email that contains the final certificate. Follow the steps and when you are done that email address should have received the cert as a .crt file.
In spite of the limitations described above, certificate-authenticated TLS is considered mandatory by all security guidelines whenever a web site hosts confidential information or performs material transactions. This is because, in practice, in spite of the weaknesses described above, web sites secured by public key certificates are still secure than unsecured http:// web sites.

Privacy and security. Upgrading “optionally-blockable mixed content on HTTPS sites to HTTPS if possible” concerns security. I understand your opinion regarding privacy on the Web but security is maybe a less controversial topic.
