Radisson Hotel Group has confirmed a data breach that exposed the personal details of "small percentage" of its Radisson Reward member's scheme.

Information accessed by hackers was restricted to the names, addresses, country of residence and email addresses. In "some cases" company name, phone number, Radisson Rewards member number and frequent flyer numbers were also compromised.
