Folders containing information about students from the University's Division of Continuing Education were lost. The folders were from the previous year and included names, Social Security numbers, Harvard ID numbers, dates of birth, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers. Some of the folders contained additional information about the students and their dependents, spouses or parents. The information did not include credit card numbers. The University speculates that the folders were placed in a file cabinet that was later recycled.
