NEW YORK (AP) – Dairy Queen says that its payment systems were breached by hackers who may have gained access to customer names, credit and debit card numbers, and expiration dates.

The ice cream and fast food chain says 395 of its stores around the country were affected. The data breach happened between August and September.

Here are the locations impacted in Alabama:

  • Decatur
    1654 Beltline Road SW
    August 5 – August 30
  • Gardendale
    391 Fieldstown Road
    August 6 – August 29
  • Gulf Shores
    3800 Gulf Shores Parkway
    August 6 – September 23
  • Madison
    7584 US Highway 72
    August 6 – August 29
  • Orange Beach
    25741 Perdido Beach Boulevard
    August 5 – September 3

Dairy Queen says it worked with law enforcement authorities and credit card companies to investigate the breach. It says there’s no evidence Social Security numbers, personal identification numbers or email addresses were accessed. The Edina, Minnesota-based company is offering customers free identity repair services.

A number of retailers, including Home Depot, Target and Michael’s have been the target of cyberattacks in the past year.
