BBIS is using a temporary 302 redirect when encryption is in use on all pages

Setting encryption as required for all pages in BBIS creates a 302 redirect. If a redirect has been set up in administration> redirect this creates a double redirect including both a 301 and 302 redirect. A 302 redirect is a temporary redirect and as such causes issues on googles indexing.
 
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.
