NAMASTE TECHNOLOGIES PROVIDES STATEMENT ON EMAIL LIST DISTRIBUTION
Namaste Technologies Inc. has determined that an e-mail list of users registered with Namaste MD was uploaded by an employee to a third party e-mail solicitation provider for the purposes of soliciting unauthorized cannabis sales. It is believed that the e-mails were first uploaded to the third party solicitation provider on May 4, 2019, following which affected Namaste MD users were sent e-mails over a period of five days, and the situation was contained following Namaste's detection and handling of the incident. Namaste has now completed its investigation of the facts and circumstances leading up to the incident, and has taken appropriate action.
The company determined that the source of the information was an employee of the company affiliated with this website operator with which the company has no affiliation or relationship. The company believes that other than a name and e-mail address, no other personally identifiable information was used or accessed.
User privacy as well as data and information security are of the upmost importance to Namaste; therefore immediate action was taken by the third party e-mail services provider to delete the affected name and e-mail information from their database upon Namaste's request.
The company is taking steps to help protect registered users. The company is in the process of hiring a security expert to assist in a review and revision of its internal data control and security policies to better prevent incidents of this sort in the future. Namaste has contacted the impacted users to explain the nature and scope of the incident.
