They do this so that a shady website cannot copy the code from a different website certificate and add it to their website to make it appear legit. Since you are linking from the HP forums (with a different IP referrer) this is most likely the cause of the invalid message.

Furthermore the shopping cart is using an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) https connection which is what Thawte provides as a secure payment gateway. Sorry, eCommerce IT is my business so I just thought I'd chime in.
Another great reason to join HP, such a diverse background of people that you can find out stuff that isn't hookah related.
