(KGTV) - Athletic footwear company Adidas is alerting its U.S. customers of a data breach it experienced earlier this week in which shoppers’ information may have been accessed without authorization.

The company said they first became aware of a situation involving its customers’ data on June 26, saying that they learned "an unauthorized party claims to have acquired limited data associated with these consumers” on that date.

The company added: “adidas is committed to the privacy and security of our consumers' personal data. We immediately began taking steps to determine the scope of the issue and to alert relevant consumers. adidas is working with leading data security firms and law enforcement authorities to investigate the issue. According to the preliminary investigation, the limited data includes contact information, usernames and encrypted passwords. We have no reason to believe that any credit card or fitness information was impacted.”

Adidas contacted all of its customers via email to inform them of the incident.

They urge anyone with questions on the matter to contact them at 800-982-9337 or customerservice@us.adidas.com.
