Brooks Brothers Reaches Settlement in Class Action Lawsuit
Brooks Brothers has reached a settlement agreement in a class action lawsuit that alleges it violated the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act of 1971, Cal. Civ. Code § 1747.08, which prohibits retailers from requesting customers’ personal information when they pay by credit card. The lawsuit claims that Brooks Brothers requested and stored customers’ personal identification information during credit card purchases in violation of the Act.
Under the terms of the settlement, Brooks Brothers has agreed to provide merchandise certificates to all class members who purchased merchandise from a California Brooks Brothers store with a credit card between June 2, 2010 and June 18, 2012, and were asked to provide and provided personal identification information, including their address, email, zip code or telephone number. The certificates are worth $25 off all merchandise purchases up to and including $200, or $50 off all merchandise purchases over $200, and are redeemable at any California Brooks Brothers store.
Brooks Brothers denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to modify its data collection practices.
