In re Hudson’s Bay Company Data Security Settlement
If you used a credit, debit, or other payment card (other than a Saks First branded credit card) at a Saks, Saks OFF 5TH, or Lord & Taylor store in the United States and in U.S. territories between May 1, 2017 and April 1, 2018, you may be eligible for benefits from a data breach class action settlement. If you are a Settlement Class Member, you may be eligible for a $30.00 cash payment for time spent monitoring or addressing the Data Breach, and you may also be eligible for reimbursement of actual documented unreimbursed out-of-pocket expenses caused by the Data Breach, up to $5,000.
A settlement (the “Settlement”) has been proposed with Hudson’s Bay Company ULC (formerly known as Hudson’s Bay Company), Saks Incorporated, Saks Fifth Avenue LLC, Saks & Company LLC, and Lord & Taylor LLC (“Defendants”) in lawsuits asserting claims against Defendants relating to a data security incident that occurred between May 1, 2017 and April 1, 2018, arising from a third-party criminal cyberattack involving the placement of malware on Defendants’ point of sale systems targeting customers’ payment card information (the “Data Breach”). Defendants deny all of the claims. The Settlement does not establish who is correct and is not an admission of fault, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit.
The Settlement includes, subject to certain limitations, all persons who used their credit, debit or prepaid debit card (other than a Saks First branded credit card) at a Saks, Saks OFF 5TH, or Lord & Taylor store in the United States and in U.S. territories between May 1, 2017 and April 1, 2018 (the “Settlement Class”).
The Court has scheduled a Final Approval Hearing for January 11, 2022.
