$16 Million Crunchyroll Settlement to Provide Payments to Affected Users After Allegedly Disclosing Personal Details Without Consent
$16 million Crunchyroll settlement will provide direct payments to affected users following a privacy violations lawsuit, wherein the Crunchyroll settlement started when some of the streaming service’s users accused it of disclosing personal details without their consent.
According to a report published in Washington Examiner, the affected users have reported that Crunchyroll disclosed their data to other parties without their consent; however, they strongly denied the allegations as part of the Crunchyroll settlement but agreed to the $16 million Crunchyroll settlement just to prevent further damages done to the company.
Under the Crunchyroll settlement, affected users who experienced privacy violations between September 8, 2020, and September 20, 2023 are encouraged to submit a claim to receive payments as part of the Crunchyroll settlement despite the company denying the claims.
Affected Users Encouraged to Submit Claim Before the Deadline of the Crunchyroll Settlement to Receive Payments
The affected users are encouraged to submit a claim before December 12, the deadline for the Crunchyroll settlement, to receive payments of more or less than $30 depending on the number of eligible users.
Eligible users will expect to know the final amount they will receive under the Crunchyroll settlement when the final approval is conducted in the court on December 19, Comic Book reported.
