What is Tinder Class Action Lawsuit?
Tinder class action lawsuit is all about the age discrimination done by the Tinder app for a subscription. A California woman claimed that the Tinder app did age discrimination in its deluxe versions of the app.
According to the Tinder age bias class action lawsuit, the users 29 or older were charged more as compared to others for Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold membership.
Further, the class action lawsuit claimed that the users under the age of 29 got a fifty percent discount to subscribe to the Gold or Plus version of the app.
According to plaintiff Lisa Kim, this pricing structure of the Tinder app was discriminatory. However, Tinder contended that the pricing structure only reflected the preferred price for various age groups.
moreover, the plaintiff said that the pricing structure for Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold violated the California anti-discrimination laws. Moreover, the app made a difference in pricing depending upon the age of users.
Under the terms and conditions of the Tinder age bias class action settlement, the dating company will pay $17.3 million to the Class Members.
However, the Class Members who still subscribe to the Tinder app will receive 50 “Super Likes” at no costs. Super Likes are a premium feature of the application which benefits members for $1 and allows them to enhance their profile.
Further, to get the benefits the class members need to file a valid claim before the deadline. The Members who submit Claim Forms can receive one of three awards. The award is $25 cash, an additional 25 Super Likes,or free one-month subscription to the Tinder app.
