    Thanks and regards

    I've tried to perform a submission on your form. It seems you have an auto-refresh code on the webpage, making the site reload exactly every 30 seconds:


    I would suggest to remove this code form this specifc page, unless you absolutely need it, then I would suggest to use a value much higher than 30 seconds. To allow people enough time to fill out the form. Thank you.

    Works fine. Removed the meta tag that was refreshing the page every 30 seconds.

    Thanks for the support.
