Sailors and Marines who used their Navy Cash/Marine Cash cards at Target department stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 will not be liable for purchases made as a result of the unauthorized access to card data that was reported by the retailer last month.

Target said the security breach potentially exposed the credit- and debit-card information of millions of customers. But Navy Cash/Marine Cash cardholders are protected by the card networks and Regulation E, which sets rules for electronic funds transfers and establishes customer protections associated with using electronic funds transfers, the Navy News Service reports.

Disbursing officers on ships will issue new cards to members affected by the breach.
