You can confirm that your connection is secure by looking in the lower right-hand corner of your browser window. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), the SSL is active and your connection is secure. You can also look at the web address (URL) displayed near the top of your browser to see if your connection is secure. If secure, it will have an 'https' prefix, rather than the normal 'http' prefix. Please note that SSL will not activate until you log into an existing account on our site or begin the checkout process once you have completed your shopping.
