AeroGrow International Inc.

At approximately 5:00 pm on August 2, 2017, the Organization discarded 171 client files in a locked dumpster. The file folders had a client name on the tab only. On the inside was a weigh-in sheet that recorded month/day and weight, as well as a sheet listing recipes provided in a meal plan. Both sheets had the Organization?s logo on them, although the logo did not appear on the file folder itself. At approximately 10:30 am on August 4, 2017, the Organization was notified by the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner that an individual had seen the file folders and documents belonging to the Organization in the dumpster and had reported their findings to the Privacy Commissioner?s office.
