Nissan Canada Inc. says personal information of some customers of its finance unit may have become public through a data breach.
Nissan Canada Finance is contacting 1.13 million current and former customers who financed vehicle purchases or leases through the company of Infiniti Financial Services Canada, which finances vehicles sold by the company's luxury division.
The data breach "may have impacted the following types of information for some customers: customer name, address, vehicle make and model, vehicle identification number, credit score, loan amount and monthly payment," NIssan Canada said in a statement Thursday.
The company is still investigating what personal information was affected by the breach, which involved an unauthorized person or persons getting access to the data.
Nissan Canada said it's not aware how many customers may have been affected. The auto maker said it will offer customers who may have been affected 12 months of credit monitoring services through TransUnion.
