Zara Reaches Settlement in Fair Credit Reporting Act Class Action Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

Santa Clara, CA: A proposed class action settlement has been reached concerning Zara USA, claiming that Zara printed more than the last four digits of credit card account numbers on in-store receipts, which is a violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

To get a payment you must submit a claim form by January 22, 2015. Class members who make a timely claim will receive a percentage of $1.6 million. The actual payment will vary depending on the number of valid claims and transactions submitted, up to a maximum of $100 per transaction.

The Court decided that everyone falling under the following definition is a member of the Settlement Class defined as follows:

All persons to whom Zara USA provided an electronically printed receipt at the point of sale in a transaction occurring inside one of Zara' stores in the United States, from December 17, 2014, to April 27, 2015, which displayed the credit card' first six digits. The class includes debit cards that were used as credit cards without a PIN being used, but excludes debit cards in which a PIN was used.

Claims may be submitted by Mail or through the Settlement Website by January 22, 2016 and if this settlement is approved you will receive a check for up to $100 (up to one hundred dollars) per transaction.

If you do nothing, you will remain in the settlement class and be bound by the orders of the Court. You will not receive a payment from the settlement fund that has been established in this case.

If you exclude yourself, you will not receive a payment, but you retain your right to sue regarding the legal claims in this case.

The settlement must be approved in court in a fairness hearing. For complete details on the settlement and filing a claim, visit:
