Rule n° 192 - All pages use the HTTPS protocol.

HTTPS, which is at the beginning of most web addresses today, means that the page is sent by the server with HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure or "secure hypertext transfer protocol". This means that the page is sent with http and is encrypted to prevent it from being read directly on the network. Initially reserved for the transfer of sensitive data, this approach is now generalised to all web pages. For users, this means that your exchanges with the site are encrypted.
