ZOTAC management wouldn't be having a good weekend, with the company seeing leaks of the personal information of its customers through the "mismanagement" of its RMA files. GamersNexus goes into great detail on the story below:

Our friends at Wccftech picked up the story, saying it looks like ZOTAC has been "negligent in safeguarding consumer rights and has made the personal information of multiple customers public by not securely managing RMA files". This is a massive issue for the company, putting multiple people and their private information at risk.

How did this happen? ZOTAC uploaded these important files to Google web servers, which meant they were publicly accessible to anyone who simply searched "ZOTAC RMA" or something to that effect. The RMA files won't appear on Google searches now, but the images discovered by GamersNexus show that the Google search results had B2B (business-to-business) invoices, as well as custom RMA requests and their personal information.

ZOTAC's business partner told GamersNexus: "If I can Google Search my own credit memos.... what the **** is this? How can you be this insecure? How can you run a business like this?"

One of GamersNexus' viewers said he had the knack of "looking up himself" on Google searches, noticing his RMA file was in the results. There's detailed user information, invoice amounts, and more... with the B2B invoices showing us that ZOTAC purchased NVIDIA's previous-gen GeForce RTX 3090 for $2400 per card, which I'm sure is something ZOTAC didn't want public.

If you've purchased a product from ZOTAC and want to see if you're on this list, look up a unique string in them,, for example,, your name, and then add "site:zotacusa.com." If a search result shows up, it could be a dead link as ZOTAC is scrambling to fix these issues. ZOTAC is working with its partners right now to solve the problem, with the company raising the issues with the relevant people, with ZOTAC asking customers to email personal documents to a certain address.
