A letter dated April 18 explains that a breach of doTERRA’s third-party data hosting and software service provider may have accessed the names, Social Security or identification numbers, payment card information, dates of birth, postal and email addresses, telephone numbers, usernames and passwords.

Copies of the notification letter appeared on the California and New Hampshire attorney general web sites.  While total number of individuals impacted was not disclosed by dōTERRA, they did report that 2,330 New Hampshire residents were among those impacted.
