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.
