      Latitude has a number of financial products down under, not usually under that as a trading name. They also sell insurance products, which they are “not currently selling”.

      Gem Visa is one of their products.

      As of today, Latitude understands that approximately 103,000 identification documents, more than 97% of which
      are copies of drivers’ licences, were stolen from the first service provider. Approximately 225,000 customer records
      were also stolen from the second service provider.
      Latitude apologises to the impacted customers and is taking immediate steps to contact them. Further updates will
      be provided to the ASX and on Latitude’s website

      per their ASX announcement, March 16th 2023
