this is getting beyond a joke now with their incompetence, an email sent out this morning containing the emails of a lot of users, I’m assuming it is captains/managers as it was addresses to our team manager and I’ll guess whoever sent it doesn’t know how to use mailchimp correctly for mailing lists.
Is ZHQ going to do anything about taking over the series completely and running it in house rather than out sourcing to a 3rd party after yet another data breach from them? This is the 2nd data breach now in less than 12 months and quite frankly i’m disturbed this sort of thing is going on and ZHQ is not doing anything about it especially after the last time or am i going to get maintenanced again for bringing this up?
Come on now guys, this is really unfair. One of them claims to be a billion dollar corporation, the other one assured us they don’t make mistakes. I think highlighting these issues is not playing fair.
Lets be honest here, no one could have predicted that a company that previously had data protection issues would repeat the same issue in quite a short space of time down the road.
Lucky we got professional 3rd parties in running the biggest event on zwift - Think about the issues a cowboy outfit would run in to.
I just went to “Connections” on my.zwift.com - interestingly, there is a way to opt-out of Zwiftpower there, but no way to revoke the authentication given to WTRL even though it seems to be using the same SSO. Strange. So once you have given your consent to WTRL, there is no way to revoke it again? That must be an error on Zwift’s side…
it’s a stupid breach and a completely avoidable one too but i doubt anyone is lifting a finger for 16k email addresses, it’s not worth enough money to anyone, both lawyers and criminals. zwift HQ should probably assign someone who knows what the ■■■■ they’re doing to ZRL’s data management team asap however
