Notice of Data Security Incident
Brookshire Grocery Company (“Brookshire”) is notifying impacted individuals of a data security incident that may have affected their personal information. Brookshire owns and operates grocery stores in the state of Texas. Your personal information may have been impacted if you made a purchase from them at their Spring Market retail location in Whitewright, Texas between August 14 and August 24, 2023. Brookshire takes the privacy and security of the information in its control seriously and sincerely apologizes for any concern this may cause.
Brookshire discovered an unauthorized device installed on one of its registers at its Whitewrite, TX store, store number #717, located at 301 Hwy 69 S, Whitewright, TX. Upon this discovery Brookshire removed the device, implemented its incident response protocols, began an internal investigation, and contacted law enforcement. The investigation found that the unauthorized device was a credit card skimmer capable of reading and obtaining personal information contained on customer payment cards used to make purchases. It was also determined that the devices were potentially in place on the Spring Market register between August 14, 2023 and August 24, 2023. The investigation was unable to determine if any personal information was compromised. Potentially impacted information would include names, credit or debit card numbers, card expiration dates, and security codes.
Brookshire continually monitors its registers in an attempt to prevent a similar incident from happening in the future. We are also offering credit monitoring and identity protection services from Cyberscout to impacted individuals at no cost.
