The Street reports that the New York Yankees baseball organization is apologizing for revealing some ticket-holders’ personal data:
The New York Yankees are apologizing to all of their season ticket holders after the team mistakenly gave wider than intended distribution to a spreadsheet containing their personal information.
The team saidÂ the spreadsheet was accidentally attached to an e-mail sent out on Monday night to “several hundred” of its season ticket holders.
The information in the spreadsheet included the name, address,Â phone numbers and e-mail addresses of the ticket holders, as well as their seat numbers, Yankees’ account number, the name of the team representative associated with the account, and the relevant ticket package code. […]
“Please note, immediately upon learning of the accidental attachment of the internal spreadsheet, remedial measures were undertaken so as to assure that a similar incident could not happen again,” the team said.
