CFNC reports accidental disclosure of personal information by third party

The College Foundation of North Carolina notified participants of the NC 529 Plan that some personal information was accidentally disclosed by a third-party vendor.

The foundation, CFNC, sent an email out to participants on Wednesday morning that a third-party vendor's staging server inadvertently allowed public access to this limited information.

A list of Participant names, addresses, ages, and beneficiary names in the NC 529 Plan was accidentally disclosed, according to the email.

No social security numbers, financial information, dates of birth, passwords or any other protected information were revealed.

"We are confident that the website which houses the NC 529 Plan account information and financial data was not breached and your online account access was not compromised," the foundation stated.

CFNC believes the disclosure was completely accidental and not the result of a malicious act.

The foundation is asking anyone with questions or concerns to call the NC 529 Plan at 800-600-3453 or by email to
