I warned them of this infraction of Federal Law a few years ago.  They are liable for any intentional or unintentional leak of financial or personal information that is hacked if thy new of the problem and did nothing about it.

In accordance with IRC. Section 6103 (i)(i) anyone requiring your SS# or any other financial information is liable for securing it.  Plus the penalty for failing to comply is serious.

Perhaps this should be reported to the Internal Revenue Service since they were warned and allowed it to come back to haunt them again.

I did the same thing...warned Fotolia that exposing our SS#'s was a violation of Federal law.  I just didn't know where to report them at the time other than the BBB, which I later learned isn't the reputable organization I thought it was.  If they don't fix it and soon, I'll definitely be contacting the proper authorities.  Fotolia has done some pretty crappy things over the years, but this now-recurring SS# problem is the one that angers me the most.

I am with you.  Identity theft is rampant enough as it is but handing the chickens to the wolves is completely unacceptable.

the new bulk editing is a mess - reported multiple times with no response - all they do is close the report without bothering to reply - you can make multiple changes, then if you select all and submit, all your changes disappear if you didnt waste time saving everything first!

i also got the default to exclusive when editing individual images AND when using indexing

Yep, my defaults were always set to "exclusive: No", but it go reset to yes a few days ago.  I just had to delete a few photos after noticing this after-the-fact and resubmit them.  Complete BS.
