Steps to Protect Your Information

If you believe your information may have been compromised in this breach, it's crucial to act swiftly to secure your personal data. Here are several steps you can take:

  • Obtain a Police Report: Under Massachusetts law, you have the right to obtain any police report filed concerning this incident. If you are a victim of identity theft, you are also entitled to file a police report and obtain a copy.
  • Place a Security Freeze on Your Credit Reports: Placing a security freeze on your credit reports can prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent. You can do this by contacting each of the three major consumer reporting agencies:
  • You will need to provide your full name, Social Security Number, date of birth, addresses from the past five years, proof of current address, and a photocopy of your government-issued identification. If applicable, include a copy of the police report or an investigative report concerning identity theft.
  • Enroll in Complimentary Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Protection: Jaguar Health Inc is offering affected individuals 24 months of complimentary credit monitoring and identity theft protection services through IDX.
