We’ll open this issue with a couple of websites that may not have been forthcoming with how they handle your personal data – specifically which videos you’ve been watching. It’s believed that CorePower Yoga and The New York Post (including Page Six) may be using tracking tools on their respective sites to secretly share your video-viewing history with Facebook in violation of federal law. Read more about how attorneys are gathering people to take action down below.
Then, we’ll touch on a recent settlement involving Fashion Nova following a complaint filed by the Federal Trade Commission that could mean compensation for those who bought anything from the fast-fashion company before November 21, 2019. Our final story touches on an open investigation into Luxe bidets, as attorneys have reason to believe that the supply lines that come with the product may have a tendency to leak and cause water damage. Keep reading for these stories, plus settlements that you may be able to claim.
It’s believed that CorePower Yoga may have used a tracking tool on its website to record certain users’ activities – specifically, which classes they stream – and secretly share this data with Facebook in violation of the Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA). Attorneys are now gathering members to take action over potential privacy violations via a process known as mass arbitration. This is a relatively new legal technique that, like a class action lawsuit, allows a large group of people to take action and seek compensation from a company over an alleged wrongdoing. While there are no guarantees, those who sign up may have claims worth as much as $2,500. If you’re a CorePower Yoga member who has streamed on-demand classes on the company’s website and you also have a Facebook account, learn more about the process and join others taking action here.
Echoing the previous story, attorneys suspect that The New York Post and Page Six may have also recorded certain accountholders’ activities – specifically, which videos they watch – and sent it to Facebook along with a unique ID number that could identify each individual. In light of this, attorneys are gathering NYPost.com accountholders and PageSix.com newsletter subscribers to take action over these potential privacy violations via mass arbitration. While there are no guarantees, the federal Video Privacy Protection Act states that consumers who had their rights violated under the law could be owed $2,500. If you’re an NYPost.com accountholder or PageSix.com subscriber with a Facebook account and you’ve watched videos on either website, read up on the mass arbitration procedure and how your rights may have been violated on this page.

If you bought anything from Fashion Nova before November 21, 2019, you may be entitled to a refund via the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). According to the FTC, the amount Fashion Nova customers may receive will depend on “several factors,” including the total number of people who file claims. Refund claims must be filed with the FTC by August 15, 2023, so be sure to get yours in by then. For some background, the FTC accused Fashion Nova of using a third-party online product review management interface to hold back lower-starred reviews for the company’s approval while allowing four- and five-star reviews to be posted automatically. You can find a link to where you can file for a refund online, as well as additional details on the settlement, right here.
Several online complaints have led attorneys to open an investigation into Luxe bidets – specifically into reports that the products’ supply lines are leaking and causing property damage. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org have reason to believe that these problems may be caused by a defect and that a class action lawsuit could be filed. If filed and successful, a class action could help consumers get back some of the money they spent on the bidets, as well as compensation for property damage. It could also force the manufacturer to change how the products are made. So, if you own a Luxe bidet that's four years old or newer and the supply line leaked, learn more about the investigation and share your story with us here.
