California residents who have a Facebook account, booked room accommodations through Sonder within the past two years and declined cookies upon visiting the website.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys working with believe Sonder may be using tracking tools to secretly record users’ activities — including details about the rooms they book — and then sharing the data with Meta. They’re now signing up Sonder users in California to pursue mass arbitration against the company over potential privacy violations.
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 California Invasion of Privacy Act states that consumers who have had their rights violated under the law can seek recovery of $5,000 per violation.
