2019-07-03 08:57:04

We strive to be open with all our customers and are grateful that you've come to us with your concerns. To this end, we want to clarify some answers to repeat questions:

1) Your account is safe! We want to be sure you know that we have closed the gap in our security and that your account is fully protected now. You can buy and sell cards as usual.

2) No financial data of any kind was leaked! We take extra precautions with our financial data, putting it on another double secured server to ensure no one can get access to it.

3) No leaked data are used! We have investigated and taken steps to ensure that all of the leaked data has been taken down. No users have reported any fraudulent activity associated with this leak and we are working closely with authorities.

We again offer our apologies for this situation and we will further continue to invest in our security systems to ensure that your data won't be compromised again.

Update: Important Notice About Data Protection

2019-06-28 19:04:31

We have an important update regarding the announced data leak on Cardmarket:
Unfortunately, we recently learned that data other than the encrypted (thus unusable) password data was taken in the illegally obtained leak, including:
1. First and last names
2. Dates of birth (if provided)
3. E-Mail addresses
3. Phone numbers (if provided)
This data was temporarily made public last week. The leaked data is no longer online or accessible.
We are deeply sorry about this incident and can assure you that we have taken all necessary steps to ensure your Cardmarket accounts won't be compromised again.

E-Mail Communication / Password Reset

2019-06-28 13:58:10

Our e-mail servers are currently handling a very high amount of traffic. Therefore e-mail communication with Cardmarket is heavily delayed. E-Mails may take several hours to be sent/received.

Unfortunately this does also affect password reset emails. So if you have requested a password reset but have not yet received the e-mail with the reset link, please wait. Requesting another reset or contacting our Customer Support will not speed up the process.

We are sorry for the additional inconveniences.

Confirm shipping issue is SOLVED

2019-06-27 19:04:43

We are happy to tell you that the issue regarding the "Mark as sent" button is solved. You may now confirm shipping again without problems. If you are still experiencing problems, you might need to clear your browser cache.

We are terribly sorry for this technical issue that unfortunately happend at a most inconvenient time but has absolutely nothing to do with the data leak we communicated about in the last two days.

We would like to thank all users that have contacted us regarding the "Mark as sent" but. As we have received a very high number of messages, we kindly ask for your understanding, if we cannot reply to all those messages personally.

Important Notice About Data Protection

2019-06-25 17:09:50

Dear users,

we recently learned that a hacker broke into one of our secured database servers that's not currently in use on our live environment and leaked encrypted password data.

However, the password data of all users who have logged in since September 19, 2017 is fully protected, despite the leak, because of a 2017 update to the method we used for securing our password data.

Accounts of inactive users who have not logged in since 2017 have been locked for security reasons. These users need to request a new password to use their account again.

Additionally, we will ask all users, upon logging in, to set a new password. If you have any problems with this or with your Cardmarket account, please get in touch with the Helpdesk.

We've also taken all the necessary steps to comply with the GDPR in order to ensure that your data is secure.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause,

Your Cardmarket Team
