Welcome to the LinkedIn User Privacy Litigation Settlement Website.

United States District Court for the Northern District of California

If you paid a fee to LinkedIn for a premium subscription at any time between March 15, 2006 and June 7, 2012, a class action settlement may affect your rights.

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against LinkedIn, which operates a professional networking service (website at www.linkedin.com). The class action lawsuit involves claims that LinkedIn did not adequately protect the passwords and personal information of the users of its premium services.

You are included if you are an individual or entity in the United States who paid a fee to LinkedIn for a premium subscription at any time between March 15, 2006 and June 7, 2012.

If you are included in the settlement and can attest that you were influenced by LinkedIn's statements in its User Agreement or Privacy Policy about its security when you signed up for a LinkedIn premium subscription, you are eligible to submit a claim for up to $50 from a $1,250,000 Settlement Fund, after payment of the costs of administering the settlement and any award of reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses and plaintiff's incentive award approved by the Court.

Your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don't act.
