Saks Fifth Avenue is the latest retailer to compromise the personal data of some of its shoppers.
Saks inadvertently exposed personal information, including email ad-dresses and phone numbers of some of its shoppers on its online shop-ping site this weekend, according to BuzzFeed News.
The information has since been taken down. The exposed data were vis-ible only via a specific link on the Saks site, one where customers went to join a wait-list for select products.
Saks’ e-commerce site is maintained by the digital division of its parent company, Hudson’s Bay Company.
In the report, a spokesperson from Hudson’s Bay Company said, “We want to reassure our customers that no credit, payment, or password in-formation was ever exposed. The security of our customers is of utmost priority and we are moving quickly and aggressively to resolve the situa-tion, which is limited to a low single-digit percentage of email addresses.”
