A proposed Settlement arising out of a data incident has been reached with Reiter Affiliated Companies, LLC (“Defendant”). On July 4, 2022, third-party criminals gained unauthorized access to Defendant’s network. If you were notified of a Data Incident that was discovered on or about July 4, 2022, you are included in this Settlement as a member of the Settlement Class.

You are a “Settlement Class Member” if you were mailed a written notice notifying you that your PII was potentially compromised as a result of the Data Incident. You are a “California Settlement Subclass Member” if you are a Settlement Class Member who resided in California as of July 4, 2022.

Settlement Class Members and California Settlement Subclass Members may be able to recover the following applicable settlement benefits by submitting a timely and valid Claim Form:

  1. Credit Monitoring: Settlement Class Members are eligible to receive 24 months of 3-bureau credit monitoring that includes $1,000,000 reimbursement insurance and identity-restoration services from Equifax, TransUnion, or a similar provider of credit monitoring services.
  2. Out-of-Pocket Expenses: Settlement Class Members are eligible to receive a cash payment of up to $4,000 for Out-of-Pocket Expenses related to the Data Incident if certain requirements are satisfied.
  3. California Statutory Benefit: California Settlement Subclass Members (meaning those residing in California as of July 4, 2022) are eligible to receive a cash payment of up to $75 (the amount may be lower based on the number of California Settlement Subclass Members who make a Valid Claim for this benefit).
  4. Lost-Time Reimbursement: If you are a Settlement Class Member, you are not a California Settlement Subclass Member (meaning you did not reside in California as of July 4, 2022), and you spent at least one (1) full hour performing activities because of the Data Incident, you are eligible to receive a cash payment of $20 per hour for up to three (3) hours ($60 total).
