security information

At Tesco we take online security very seriously and our systems are protected to the highest standards.

When you enter a secure site, your web browser will go into secure mode. You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for either a locked padlock or a key icon in the grey bar at the bottom of your screen.

"Secure mode" means that all of your details are encrypted so your card details cannot be viewed by anyone else on the internet.

We accept orders only from Web browsers that permit communication through Secure Socket Layers (SSL) technology; for example Versions 3.0 or higher of Internet Explorer and versions 3.02 or higher of Netscape. This technology prevents you from inadvertently revealing personal details using an unsecured connection.

For enhanced protection when shopping online, Clothing at Tesco is using the 3-D secure, the Verified by Visa (VbV) security programme from Visa and the SecureCode system from Mastercard. VbV and SecureCode allow you to create your own personal password to use as an extra security measure for any online Visa or Mastercard payments you make.

Please check the Visa or Mastercard websites for more detail at www.visa.com and www.mastercard.com/uk. Alternatively, please phone your bank for more information and assistance.
