Question Alexa Class Action Lawsuit

OFFICIAL COURT NOTICE OF CLASS CERTIFICATION AND PROPOSED SETTLEMENT OF CLASS ACTION

Supnick et al. v. Amazon.com, Inc. and Alexa Internet, Inc.,
http://www.alexa.com/settlement/index.html

(quote on)

What is the lawsuit about? Plaintiffs filed a series of lawsuits against Alexa Internet, and its parent corporation, Amazon.com Inc., that were consolidated into this lawsuit. In the lawsuit, plaintiffs allege that Alexa Internet and Amazon.com violated the privacy rights of users of Alexa's Web Browsing Software (prior to the current version 5.0) by collecting certain personal information from users without their knowledge, authorization or consent. Plaintiffs allege that this conduct violates certain federal statutes, as well as state common law and statutory protections of privacy and consumer rights. Plaintiffs seek to compel defendants to cease collecting information without users' consent and to pay damages.
