Showpo settles data ‘theft’ allegations against Black Swallow for $60,000

Jessica Sier reports:

Online retailers Showpo and Black Swallow have settled their data breach dispute, after Showpo alleged one of its former graphic designers downloaded the company’s entire customer database and passed it on to her new employers at Black Swallow.

Sydney-based Black Swallow has been ordered to pay $60,000 to Showpo in instalments over the next several months and both parties are to pay their own legal costs. Following these payments, the case is to be dismissed.

Graphic designer Melissa Aroutunian, 24, has been permanently restrained from using or disclosing the client contact list and has been ordered to cover her legal costs.
