“Due to this intrusion, some of our patrons personal information including names, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers and expiration dates may have been compromised,” according to a press release from Purple Rose.
Vendini does not collect credit card security access codes (e.g. CVV, CVV2, PINs) or social security numbers, patron usernames or passwords, according to the statement from the theater company.
Vendini is not currently contacting anyone in Michigan, or in neighboring states, the information states. Here’s more information about the security breach from Vendidi’s blog.
