Default VPN says Parker website not secure

I've been using NORD VPN on all my home computers and mobile devices for a few years. While I've noticed it for sometime and only now asking why is it when I sign into the Parker website I get a warning that the site is non-secure. Why is this and should I be concerned? The Parker website is the only website I've seen this NORD message for.

I have an excellent security system in my PC that updates everyb time I access the Internet so I don't worry about that message.

I think the website is secure--not so sure about all the members.
Seriously, I have never gotten that message here, but have on other sites.

VPN has become very inefficient and is only suitable for light tasks. Most sites have learned to recognize VPN and now block users with VPN enabled. I need to visit many different sites for work, but I can't access some because of regional blocking.

I get a lock symbol now every time I access the site. John Dunkle, I would like to thank You for whatever you do to keep this site free of all the annoying pop-up trash which is so common on other sites. Your skill and efforts are very much appreciated, Sir.

I need to visit many different sites for work, but I can't access some because of regional blocking. VPN used to help me get around the blocks, but now it doesn't. So I decided to buy https://soax.com/mini-proxy-online, which was a good decision. Now it's easier for me to surf the internet. Moreover, no one can know my real location.
