At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone in California, Pennsylvania or Florida who has both a Facebook and a Shutterstock account and visited within the past two years.
What’s Going On?
It’s believed that Shutterstock may have used a tracking tool on its website to collect users’ personal information and secretly share it with Facebook for advertising purposes. Attorneys are now gathering Shutterstock accountholders to take action over potential privacy violations.
What You Can Do
If you use Shutterstock and have a Facebook account, join others taking action by filling out the form linked below.
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.
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, state privacy laws in California, Pennsylvania and Florida provide that consumers could be owed anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 for violations.
