DutchWear notifies online customers of payment card breach

Boersma Bros. LLC, dba DutchWear has disclosed a breach affecting those who made purchases online between November 7th and December 6th.

On Saturday, December 6th, 2014, we received information that raised suspicion of an unauthorized breach of our website that was exposing the payment information for some customers of DutchWear. In order to best protect our customers, we immediately took down our e-commerce site shop.dutchbros.com and conducted an extensive investigation of our computer systems.

Customers’ name, address, phone number, credit card number, expiration date, and credit card security code may have been exposed. Only users of the DutchWear e-commerce site were exposed, not customers at retail locations.

The firm writes:

 Because your privacy means so much to us, the former website will remain offline permanently. We are building a brand new site, with new security features and protocols intended to prevent this type of breach from happening again.

The number of customers affected was not reported.

The breach was also reported to the California Attorney General’s Office (pdf).
