Important Notice - Customer Information Incident January 29, 2018
Numotion has recently notified certain customers of the retail site shopnumotion.com that their individual information may have been accessed in connection with a security lapse.
On January 29, 2018, Numotion became aware that an unauthorized third party had accessed the retail website shopnumotion.com without our knowledge. Immediately upon becoming aware of the unauthorized access, we worked to terminate the third party’s access to our website and changed the credentials for administrator access to the site. The unauthorized access was successfully terminated on January 29,, 2018, the same day it was discovered. We also generated and reviewed logs to determine what information may have been accessible during this time. The third party could have accessed the customer name, address, telephone number, email address, IP address, and details regarding the type of product(s) ordered (such as the description, price and shipping method). The third party did not access any credit card information, social security numbers, medical records, dates of birth, or any passwords to financial accounts.
