A $13.75 subscriber info class action settlement has reached in a Michigan Conde Nast Subscriber lawsuit that resolves the privacy allegations.
The plaintiffs in the Conde Nast have claimed that the magazine publishers have wrongfully shared the Michigan Conde Nast subscriber’s info with the third parties. Not just have they shared the information, but they have also violated Michigan’s Preservation of Personal Privacy Act. The publications that were covered in this subscriber info class action settlement include Brides, Allure, Bon Appétit, Golf Digest, Glamour, GQ Lucky, The New Yorker, Teen Vogue, W, Women’s Wear Daily, and Wired.
These parties admit no wrongdoing, but the parties involved have decided to settle the case with the monetary payout for class members.
The Conde Nast believes that the practice complied with the Michigan laws. But still, they chose to settle the allegations on them so that they can focus on providing the valued content to its readers.
For this settlement, the class member includes the Michigan customers who had a subscription to this settlement between July 20, 2009, and July 30, 2016. However, the exact amount will depend on the number of valid claims, but the payout is to be estimated around $75.
Moreover, the class counsel will ask no more than one-third of the settlement fund as the attorney fee plus the reimbursements for other expenses. With this, the fund will also pay $10,000 to the class representative for her plaintiff services.
