Data Breach at Loyaltybuild: Update
The data breach that affected some 80,000 customers of Supervalu's Getaway and Axa's Leisure Break loyalty break schemes appears to have taken place in mid-October. These customers - who should by now have been notified directly by Supervalu and Axa - should examine their card transactions since mid-October to identify any such transactions that they did not authorise. They should also follow the advice of their card provider on any further precautions that might be necessary to protect themselves.
The balance of the approximately half-million other cards that may have been affected by this breach relates mainly to loyalty schemes operated by Loyaltybuild on behalf of companies based in other European countries.
The Office's investigation is continuing.
