IF YOU PROVIDED YOUR FINGERPRINT TO ACCESS ONE OR MORE ILLINOIS L.A. TAN FRANCHISE SALONS BETWEEN NOVEMBER 13, 2013 AND AUGUST 11, 2016, A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS  A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against L.A. Tan Enterprises, Inc. (“Defendant” or “L.A. Tan”). The suit concerns whether L.A. Tan violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by collecting Illinois customers’ fingerprints without obtaining their informed written consent. L.A. Tan denies any wrongdoing and maintains that it has not violated any laws. The settlement does not establish who is correct, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation.
You are included in the Settlement if your fingerprints were scanned at an Illinois L.A. Tan salon between November 13, 2013 and August 11, 2016. Those who submit valid claims will be eligible to receive an equal, or pro rata, share of a $1.5 million settlement fund that L.A. Tan has agreed to establish. Each individual who submits a valid claim will receive a portion of this fund, after all notice and administration costs, the incentive award, and attorneys’ fees have been paid. Payments are estimated to exceed $100. L.A. Tan has also agreed to comply with the BIPA in the future.
