    Dear ....


    We are writing to inform you of a security incident which involved your personal data. We process your personal data for the purpose of delivering parcels to you.


    What happened?

    Regrettably, we have suffered a cyber-attack in which your personal data was compromised.

    A vulnerability in our system commenced on the 23rd of February 2021. This vulnerability was contained by the 26th February 2021. However, we are aware that during the period in which the system was vulnerable your personal data was accessed by a third-party hacker.

    The personal data consists of your name and address and may also contain your telephone number and email address. No other personal data has been compromised. We do not hold any financial or other sensitive personal data relating to you.

    We have reported this incident to the Data Protection Commission and to An Garda Siochána.


    How does this impact you?

    The personal data which was compromised is limited to your name and contact details used to deliver your parcels. However, we are alerting you about this issue to advise you to exercise extra vigilance in relation to any unsolicited communications which may purport to be from Fastway.

    We will never request any financial information from you.

    We also remind you to avoid clicking on links or downloading attachments from suspicious emails.

    We take our obligations to protect your personal data very seriously. Should you have any queries please contact dp@fastway.ie
