This Alert Affects:
23andMe customers who live in California or Illinois and received notice from the company that their information may have been accessed without their authorization.
What’s Going On?
In early October 2023, a hacker reportedly claimed to have stolen data points on millions of 23andMe customers and sold their information on the dark web. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are now gathering data breach victims to take action.
What Am I Signing Up For, Exactly?
You’re signing up for what’s known as “mass arbitration,” which involves hundreds or thousands of consumers bringing individual arbitration claims against the same company at the same time and over the same issue. This is different from a class action lawsuit and takes place outside of court.
How Much Could I Get?
While there are no guarantees, those who sign up for the mass arbitration could potentially be entitled to hundreds or thousands of dollars under state privacy laws.
