What Am I Signing Up For, Exactly?

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 Information Privacy Act states that consumers may be able to collect $1,000 per violation and as much as $5,000 in cases where the company intentionally or recklessly broke the law.
