As Kentucky class-action attorneys, we are concerned that too many businesses are not taking the precautions necessary to protect the sensitive information that their customers provide. Online companies must take measures to stop potential hackers from seizing personal information such as their customers’:
- Credit card information
- Phone numbers
- E-mail addresses
The Ways in Which We Believe Zappos Violated Customers’ Rights
Gray & White Law is the first law firm to sue Zappos for allowing its customers’ personal information to be stolen. The class-action lawsuit against the popular shoe and apparel company alleges that Zappos broke several laws:
- Common Law Right to Privacy – This law is broken when the victims’ rights have been violated. For example, an individual or company may disclose private information or allow information to be stolen.
- Common Law Negligence – A company may be found negligent if it fails to protect its customers or fails to do something to stop others from causing harm.
When a Business Fails to Protect Your Information
Too often, we hear about businesses being hacked—their customers’ information stolen. We have come to believe that this is part of the digital age and that if we purchase items online, we are taking a risk. However, this should not be the case.
Customers have the right to have their information protected. They should never fall victim to a hacker or scammer. This lawsuit is a chance for those who have been wronged by Zappos to be heard—to declare that their trust has been violated and that they will be compensated for losses.
