Notification of Security Breach
The Jewson Direct website
(formerly the Jewson Tools website at www.jewsondirect.co.uk) has suffered a security breach and, as a
result, customer data may have been compromised.
The breach was discovered on 3
November 2017. On becoming aware of the breach, we have temporarily
shut down the website www.jewsondirect.co.uk.
We have notified 1,659 customers
whose data may have been compromised and are offering free credit
monitoring to those affected to help detect any potential misuse of
data in the future.
Only the Jewson Direct website was
affected by the security breach.
Our main website www.jewson.co.uk , our credit account customers and
transactions across our branch network are not affected by the
security breach and are operating normally.
We have commissioned a forensic
investigation into the breach using a specialist firm and the
Jewson Direct (formerly the Jewson Tools website) will remain
offline until the investigation has been completed.
We sincerely apologise for the
distress and inconvenience this security breach has caused to those
