SECURITY

Protecting your information is extremely important to us. We realize that prioritizing this issue will insure an exceptional shopping experience.

With encryption in place, only Genesco can decode your information.

You can insure your connection is secure by looking in the lower left-hand corner of your browser window.

Please note that SSL will not activate until you enter the login page after you have completed your shopping and are ready to check out.

You may also check your security level by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from 'http' to 'https.'

Please note that some versions of browsers don't permit communication even if the server is secure. This is also true of some firewalls. If for some reason you are unable to connect to our secure server or would rather place your order by phone, please call us at 800-424-2854. Orders may also be faxed to 800-654-2371.
