About the Settlement

Why did I receive this Settlement Payment?

Your settlement payment is the result of a settlement in the Finger Scan Vending Settlement.

This Lawsuit was about whether Compass Group USA, Inc. and 365 Retail Markets, LLC violated the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”). Among other things, BIPA prohibits private companies from capturing, collecting, or otherwise obtaining an individual’s biometric identifier or biometric information, including

a fingerprint or identifying information based on a fingerprint, without first providing an individual with certain written disclosures and obtaining written consent. The Lawsuit alleges that Compass and 365 Retail violated BIPA by collecting fingerprint data from users of vending machine systems in Illinois without first providing written notice and obtaining written consent.

Compass and 365 Retail denied any violation of the law. The parties agreed to a settlement to resolve the Lawsuit. The Court did not decide whether Compass or 365 Retail violated the law.
