Dear Friends of Chic Critique Forum,


Chic Critique Company, LLC, is writing an important update and explanation to you. Chic Critique Company, LLC, values you and respects the privacy of your information, which is why, as a precautionary measure, Chic Critique Company, LLC is writing to let you know about a data security incident that may have involved your personal information.

As you may be aware, Chic Critique Forum was supposed to be transferred from France Enterprises, LLC, which is owned by Matthew France and Kelli France, to Chic Critique Company, LLC, pursuant to an asset purchase transaction between the two companies. Unfortunately, however, this transfer process (including but not limited to transfer of a functioning web site) has been delayed and it is currently unclear whether it will ever be completed due to some facts that have come to the attention of Chic Critique Company, LLC.

While under the ownership of Matthew France and Kelli France (France Enterprise, LLC), and over the course of several months prior to any involvement of Chic Critique Company, LLC (or Ms. Abbey Kyhl), hackers reportedly began to implement a pattern of activity that compromised Chic Critique Forum with malware and adware. Full information from the Frances and France Enterprise, LLC, has not yet become available, but the data accessed during this time may have included personal information such as your Username, Password, Birth date, and email address. If Chic Critique Company, LLC, understands the Frances and France Enterprise, LLC, correctly, the data accessed did not include any credit card or banking information. Chic Critique Company, LLC currently has no independent information to indicate any credit card or banking information was ever compromised, and is still reviewing the situation.

Chic Critique Company, LLC, has not and will not operate the Chic Critique Forum unless and until, among other things, all issues related to the above matter have been resolved to the satisfaction of Chic Critique Company, LLC in order to protect you and your information. Accordingly, the Chic Critique Forum web site has been disabled, and this will continue until a maintenance review which is still in progress can be completed. It is unclear at this time when and if the Chic Critique Forum will be brought back on line, and if so, whether Chic Critique Forum will at that juncture be operated by Chic Critique Company, LLC, instead of by Matthew France and Kelli France of France Enterprises, LLC.

To the extent, if any, that you may have purchased a yearly membership or other benefits or services from Matthew France and Kelli France of France Enterprises, LLC, please feel free to contact them directly with any questions or requests you may have about such transactions. Similarly, to the extent you may have any questions about the data security incident, please feel free to contact them directly. They can be reached by telephone at 719-502-1606 or email at mgfkulaw@gmail.com.

Chic Critique Company, LLC continues to solicit information and cooperation from Matthew France and Kelli France of France Enterprises, LLC. In the meantime, Chic Critique Company, LLC, will be fully refunding upon request the money of all customers who have made direct payment to Chic Critique Company, LLC (perhaps through its contact, Ms. Abbey Kyhl) for membership access to the Chic Critique Forum. To obtain such a refund, please telephone 435-463-2844 or email chiccritiqueforum@gmail.com to reach Chic Critique Company, LLC, through its contact, Ms. Abbey Kyhl.

As a courtesy, Chic Critique Company, LLC, is providing an attachment to this letter (Steps You Can Take to Further Protect Your Information) which offers additional ways you can protect yourselves and your information. Again, please feel free to contact Matthew France and Kelli France of France Enterprises, LLC, should you have further questions about the data security incident.

Chic Critique Company, LLC, is monitoring the situation with interest and will try to provide any updated information that may become available. Chic Critique Company, LLC, greatly appreciates your patience in the face of these unanticipated developments.

Sincerely,
Chic Critique Company, LLC
