More Companies Suspected of Illegally Sharing User Data
In our latest issue, we’re opening with an investigation into Wondrium.com and whether the website is secretly disclosing information about users and their video viewing histories. From there, we’ll take a look at Luxe 90 and Luxe 95 bidets, which attorneys believe may be plagued with a potential defect that causes the products to leak.
Our final two stories this week revolve around Pharmacy.Costco.com and DaVita.com, which may be illegally sharing visitors’ personal and medical data with Facebook.
Keep reading for these stories, plus the latest data breaches and some settlements that you may be able to claim.
If you’re a Facebook user with a Wondrium membership who has streamed videos on Wondrium.com within the past three years, your privacy rights may have been violated. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe that Wondrium may have used a tracking tool on its website to collect information about certain users – specifically, which videos they watch – and secretly shared this data with Facebook. Attorneys are now gathering paid members to take legal action against Wondrium through mass arbitration, a legal process that involves many consumers simultaneously filing individual claims against the same company over the same issue. While nothing is guaranteed, it’s possible that participants could be owed up to $2,500. To learn more about the investigation and join others taking action, visit this page.
Countless complaints have surfaced online from consumers who say that their Luxe 90 and Luxe 95 bidets began dripping or spraying water from the supply line – sometimes soon after they’ve been installed. Some customers have even reported that the leaking caused flooding and extensive property damage. In light of these complaints, attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether a defect is to blame and, if so, whether a class action lawsuit can be filed to help buyers recover some of the money they spent on the handheld bidets. If you purchased a Luxe 90 or Luxe 95 bidet within the past four years and experienced a supply line leak, share your story with us here.

Continuing with the data privacy issue, an investigation has been launched into whether Costco Wholesale Corporation may be illegally tracking Pharmacy.Costco.com users and sending information about their medical conditions, treatments and prescriptions to Facebook. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe that Costco may have violated the law by failing to obtain website visitors’ consent before sharing their highly personal data – and they’re looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed to help compensate people whose privacy may have been violated. So, if you’re a Facebook user who has filled a prescription online with Costco in the past three years, head over to this page for more details.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org suspect that DaVita may have used tracking tools on its website to record dialysis patients’ personal and medical information and then secretly shared it with Facebook. Now, they’re looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed based on privacy laws that prohibit companies like DaVita from disclosing patients’ information to third parties without consent. But before that can happen, attorneys need to speak to DaVita dialysis patients with Facebook accounts who visited DaVita.com and live in California. Read up on the investigation and get in touch over on this page.
