MJH Life Sciences (“MJH”) writes to inform you of a recent event that may affect the privacy of some of your information.
We wanted to provide you with information about the event, our response, and steps you may wish to take to better protect against the possibility of identity theft and fraud.
Our investigation of the event determined that your name, [Redacted] may have been accessed and/or acquired by an unauthorized actor. We have not received any reports of unauthorized use of your information.
We take this event and the security of personal information in our care very seriously. Upon learning of this event, we moved quickly to investigate and respond, assess the security of our systems, and notify potentially affected individuals. As part of our ongoing commitment to the security of information, we are reviewing and enhancing existing policies and procedures to reduce the likelihood of a similar future event. We reported this event to federal law enforcement and will comply with any investigation. We will also be notifying state and federal regulators, as required.
As an added precaution, we are also offering you complimentary access to twenty-four months of credit monitoring and identity theft restoration services through TransUnion. We encourage you to activate these services, as we are not able to act on your behalf to activate them for you.
To enroll in this service, go directly to the myTrueIdentity website at [Redacted] and in the space referenced as “Enter Activation Code”, enter the following 12-letter Activation Code [Redacted] and follow the three steps to receive your credit monitoring service online within minutes.
If you do not have access to the Internet and wish to enroll in a similar offline, paper based, credit monitoring service, via U.S. Mail delivery, please call the TransUnion Fraud Response Services toll-free hotline at 1-855-288-5422. When prompted, enter the following 6-digit telephone pass code [Redacted] and follow the steps to enroll in the offline credit monitoring service, add an initial fraud alert to your credit file, or to speak to a TransUnion representative if you believe you may be a victim of identity theft.
You can sign up for the online or offline credit monitoring service anytime between now and [Redacted]. Due to privacy laws, we cannot register you directly. Please note that credit monitoring services might not be available for individuals who do not have a credit file with TransUnion, or an address in the United States (or its territories) and a valid Social Security number, or are under the age of 18. Enrolling in this service will not affect your credit score.
Once you are enrolled, you will be able to obtain two years of unlimited access to your TransUnion credit report and credit score.
The daily credit monitoring service will notify you if there are any critical changes to your credit file at TransUnion, including fraud alerts, new inquiries, new accounts, new public records, late payments, change of address and more.
