Officials at Desjardins revealed Thursday an employee improperly collected information about customers and shared it with a third party outside the financial institution, which is the largest federation of credit unions in North America, with outlets across Quebec and Ontario.

The leaked information includes names, addresses, birth dates, social insurance numbers, email addresses and information about transaction habits. Passwords, security questions and personal identification numbers weren’t compromised, according to Desjardins.

The Personal Insurance although owned by Desjardins, is unaffected as this was information obtained through their Financial Services Division.
