At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Illinois residents who uploaded a selfie to verify their Bumble profile.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe Bumble may have illegally collected users’ facial geometries when they uploaded a selfie to confirm they matched their photos. They are now gathering Illinois residents who used Bumble’s photo verification feature to take action against the company.
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 class action litigation and takes place outside of court.
Does This Cost Anything?
It costs nothing to sign up, and the attorneys will only get paid if they win your claim.
How Much Could I Get?
While there are no guarantees, the Illinois Biometric Privacy Act (BIPA) states that consumers who had their facial geometries illegally collected could be owed as much as $5,000 per violation.
