Butlin’s is a chain of large holiday camps in the UK. The camp says the data in question included names, home addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers. Managing director Dermot King apologised for the incident and said no financial information was compromised. Moreover, the company has set up a "dedicated team" to contact guests who may have been affected.
