In November 2015, the personal data on millions of parents and children was exposed after a hacker gained access to the server of the electronic toy manufacturing company.
Exposed information included names, addresses, birthdates and email addresses. The breach also included thousands of image files, taken with the company's products and uploaded online. The company said no credit cards or Social Security numbers were taken.
In January 2018, the company agreed to pay $650,000 to settle charges brought by the US Federal Trade Commission that it failed to protect the privacy of children using its gadgets.
