Kitronik Data Breach

We have been informed by Kitronik that the website, where customers are able to buy a micro:bit for themselves and donate a micro:bit into our giving program has suffered a data breach.

Kitronik have been in direct contact with the individuals affected by this incident.

This incident affects purchases made between Aug and Oct and we strongly advise customers to follow their individual Credit Card company advice to ensure that they are not subject to fraud.

While this incident is investigated we have decided to close the platform. We are very grateful for the support of the community who have enabled children in disadvantaged groups across the world to receive micro:bits and learn digital skills.
