If you used a credit or debit card at a Burgerville restaurant from September 12, 2017 through September 30, 2018, you may be eligible for compensation from a class action settlement.
A proposed settlement has been reached with Burgerville LLC in a class action lawsuit relating to a data breach arising out of a third-party cyberattack during which an international hacking organization placed malware on Burgerville’s network in an effort to collect customer payment card information, including names, card numbers, expiration dates and CVV numbers (the “Security Incident”).
Who’s Included? The settlement includes everyone whose debit or credit card was used to make a purchase at a Burgerville restaurant from September 12, 2017 through September 30, 2018 (“Settlement Class Members”).
What Does the Settlement Provide? The settlement will provide credit monitoring and cash payments to Settlement Class Members who submit valid Claims. The benefits you qualify for will depend on whether, on the date you file a Claim Form, you have or have not experienced Identity Theft or other fraud relating to the misuse of your personally identifiable information caused by the Security Incident and whether or not you previously enrolled in the free credit monitoring program offered by Burgerville.
Identity Theft is the fraudulent acquisition and use of your personally identifiable information for financial gain.
Personally identifiable information or PII refers to your payment card information.
How Do You Get a Cash Payment or Credit Monitoring? To request to cash payment as described above or receive credit monitoring if you did not previously enroll in Burgerville’s voluntary offer in 2018, you must complete and submit a Claim Form. Claim Forms are available at www.burgervillesettlement.com or by calling 1-844-264-8221. Read the instructions carefully, fill out the Claim Form, include any required documentation, and submit it online or by mail no later than March 5, 2020.
Your Other Options. If you are included in the settlement and do nothing, your rights will be affected and you won’t get a cash payment or credit monitoring (if you did not sign up for Burgerville’s previous offer). If you don’t want to be legally bound by the settlement, you must exclude yourself from it by March 5, 2020. Unless you exclude yourself, you won’t be able to sue or continue to sue Burgerville for any claim made in this lawsuit or released by the Settlement Agreement. If you stay in the settlement (i.e., don’t exclude yourself), you may object to it or ask for permission for you or your own lawyer to appear and speak at the hearing—at your own cost—but you don’t have to. Objections and requests to appear are due by March 5, 2020. More information about these options is available at www.burgervillesettlement.com.
