On March 16, 2023, Polished.com Inc. (the “Company”) experienced a hacking attack that impacted the check-out page on the Company’s e-commerce website. In response, the Company deployed containment measures, launched an investigation with assistance from third-party cybersecurity experts and notified appropriate law enforcement authorities. The Company considers the matter remediated.

The investigation determined that certain personal information, including names, addresses, zip codes, payment card numbers, expiration dates, and CVVs, was extracted from the Company’s systems as part of this incident. The investigation could not determine with precision which payment card data was included in the timeframe of exposure. Out of an abundance of caution, the Company notified all payment card users who made transactions on the Company’s e-commerce website within the window of exposure. As of May 24, 2023, the Company provided appropriate notice to approximately 9,290 individuals, as well as to regulatory authorities in accordance with applicable law.

Further, the Company remains subject to risks and uncertainties as a result of the incident, including as a result of the data that was extracted from the Company’s network as noted above. Additionally, security and privacy incidents have led to, and may continue to lead to, additional regulatory scrutiny.
