In a decision dated February 28th, Alberta’s privacy commissioner ruled there was a risk of significant harm to the affected individuals who had their names, email addresses and mobile numbers stolen.
A company spokesman says that while they disagree with the ruling, they will comply and start emailing affected riders and drivers across the country over the next few days.
Uber says it has seen no evidence of fraud or misuse tied to the incident and continues to monitor the affected accounts.
The privacy commissioner’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
