Reputational damage for the failure to protect personal details can affect anyone......even Adele!
Fans buying tickets for Adele's tour have told the BBC they were shown the address and credit card details of customers other than themselves. Several fans said they saw other people's shopping baskets, including payment details, upon check out. Ticketing company Songkick said due to the "extreme load" on the site some customers could see others' account details. It apologised for any "alarm"."At no time was anyone able to access another person's password, nor their payment or credit card details (which are not retained by Songkick)," it said. Farmah, in Birmingham, said she was offered tickets for Glasgow shows."I got through to buying tickets but it came up with someone else's screen with their card details and home address for SSE," she tweeted. Emma Harris in Woking told the BBC she had experienced a similar problem.
