Sounds like they had http and https versions of the reporting form, and 
some external links pointed at the http version (which didn't then 
automatically redirect).

Given that there's no money to be made intercepting reports of child 
abuse, I wonder what the practical risk is from third parties. If 
there's an abuser in the same household with access to (and checking up 
on) the child's PC, then being able to see the browser history will be 
enough to ring their alarm bells, without actually having to go to the 
bother of intercepting all the traffic.
