Media Statement Regarding Online Photocentre

We were recently informed of a potential compromise of customer credit card data involving Walmart Canada’s Photocentre website, which is operated by a third-party. Our customers’ privacy is of the utmost importance. We immediately launched an investigation and will be contacting customers who may be impacted. At this time, we have no reason to believe that, or in-store transactions are affected. As we gather the facts, we recommend Walmart Canada’s Online Photocentre customers monitor their card transactions closely and immediately alert their financial institution about any unauthorized charges.

As a precaution while the investigation continues, we have disabled the Walmart Canada Photocentre website and mobile applications. We have also notified the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and will continue to work proactively with Canada's privacy regulators as the investigation continues.

We are also working closely with our vendor and financial partners and as we have additional information to share, we will.
