Consumer Notice - Credt/Debit Card Readers Self Check Out
Dear Save Mart Customer:
In the course of regular store maintenance, we discovered our credit/debit card readers at the
self-check lanes ONLY in 21 stores (listed below) had been tampered with. Steps were taken
immediately to remove the tampered card readers in the affected stores, as well as enhance
security to every credit/debit card reader in all 233 stores in our company. We are not aware nor
have we been notified of any reports that customer accounts were compromised.
As a precaution, we recommend our customers who used a self check-out lane in the affected
stores verify and monitor all credit/debit accounts with their financial institution to ensure
everything is in order. For more information, we suggest you visit the Web site of the California
Office of Privacy Protection at www.privacy.ca.gov or the Federal Trade Commission at
Save Mart Supermarkets sincerely regrets any inconvenience or concern this Consumer Notice may
have caused you. Your confidence in our company and in your store is very important to us.
We take seriously our responsibility to always keep our customers informed of any issues
important to them.
