At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Facebook users who watched videos on any of the websites, apps or streaming platforms under investigation for potential violations of a federal law known as the Video Privacy Protection Act.
What’s Going On?
Attorneys have reason to believe that the operators of certain websites, apps, and streaming platforms may be using tracking tools to secretly transmit details about certain users and the videos they’ve watched to Facebook. They’re now gathering affected consumers to take action over these potential privacy violations.
Which Websites/Platforms/Apps Are Under Investigation?
Attorneys are currently looking into the Roku Channel, Redbox, Hallmark Movies Now, and Pvolve.
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 federal Video Privacy Protection Act states that consumers who had their rights violated under the law could be owed $2,500.

The information submitted on this page will be forwarded to Milberg Coleman Bryson Phillips Grossman, PLLC who has sponsored this investigation.
