If you used a software application integrated with Kiip, Inc.’s advertising platform, you may be entitled to a cash payment from a class action settlement.

This website provides important information about a settlement in a class action lawsuit against Kiip, Inc. (“Kiip”). In a putative class action lawsuit known as Farag et al. v. Kiip, Inc., No. 2019 CH 01695 (Ill. Cir. Ct. Cook Cnty.), the Plaintiffs allege that Kiip violated the law by using its advertising platform to collect, intercept, or transmit consumers’ personal information through a software application without first getting permission from those consumers. Kiip denies that it did anything wrong, and the Court has not decided who is right. Rather, the parties have reached a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and costs associated with further litigation.

A settlement of the lawsuit (“Settlement”) has been negotiated which provides the Settlement Class Members with benefits from the Settlement, including the ability to receive a cash payment.

Please read this website carefully. It summarizes your rights and options under the Settlement. You can access and read the full Settlement Agreement here.

If, since January 1, 2010, you used a software application integrated with Kiip’s advertising platform, and if you fit the description of the Settlement Class (as defined in FAQ 1), then you have the following options under the Settlement:
