Subject: An important notice about security
We recently learned that the vendor we use to answer support requests and other emails (Zendesk) experienced a security breach.
We’re sending you this email because we received or answered a message from you using Zendesk. Unfortunately your name, email address and subject line of your message were improperly accessed during their security breach. To help keep your account secure, please:
Don’t share your password. We will never send you an email asking for your password. If you get an email like this, please let us know right away.
Beware of suspicious emails. If you get any emails that look like they’re from our Support Team but don’t feel right, please let us know – especially if they include details about your support request.
