If you’re a Bosley customer who was affected by the data breach that occurred in 2020, you may be wondering what to do next.
Fortunately, there is a class action settlement in the works that may provide you with some compensation. However, the process can be confusing, so we’ve put together a list of the most frequently asked questions about the Bosley data breach settlement.
What Is the Bosley Data Breach Lawsuit About?
This $500,000 class action settlement is a result of Bosley’s poor cyber security management. In 2020, their systems were breached, which resulted in the exposure of personal information like names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and more.
The lawsuit says that Bosley didn’t do enough to protect its customers’ personal information, so hackers were able to get into the system and steal customers’ information.
According to the settlement, a class member can receive one of two types of cash compensation:
Ordinary expenses include non-monetary losses such as credit freeze fees, card replacement fees, late fees, payday loan interest, and up to four hours of wasted time at the rate of $20 per hour. Ordinary expenses can be claimed by plantiffs up to $300.
Extraordinary expenses, such as monetary losses or personal money losses, were incurred as a result of a data breach on August 17, 2020. Class members must demonstrate that these damages occurred as a result of a data breach and on the same data and that reasonable efforts were made to avoid monetary losses. Plantiffs can claim up to $5,000 in out-of-pocket expenses.
Aside from that, California residents can claim $50 in statutory damages.
