Ubisoft has begun an alternate reality game (ARG) surrounding their surprise hit of E3, Watch Dogs. The ARG revolves around the fictional art gallery which was owned by Josph Demarco, the fellow assassinated in the E3 demo.
Well, the publisher accidentally revealed 500 users real emails in an ARG letter to users participating in the ARG, instead of blind copying them (BCC).
Ubisoft has since sent another email apologizing for the violation, stating:
Ubisoft takes privacy matters seriously. Recently we discovered some users' email addresses were gathered without following proper privacy guidelines and procedures. As a precaution, we are removing your email from our marketing database.
