In late-October, 2012, U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity-- Europe (DoDDS-Europe) became aware of the theft of computer memory devices that may have included personal information related to students and sponsors from School Years 2002-03 through this school year. The breach affected four different locations; Aukamm Elementary School, Hainerberg Elementary School, Ansbach Middle High School and Ramstein Intermediate School. Notices have been sent to sponsors of students at these four schools. However, there are a number of names for which no contact information could be found. People possibly affected should be guided by the actions recommended by the Federal Trade Commission at its website and place an initial fraud alert on their credit file. Those with questions and concerns can e-mail Privacy.Office@eu.dodea.edu.
