About The Settlement
Your settlement payment is the result of a settlement in the Plasma Settlement.
The Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) prohibits private companies from capturing, obtaining, storing, and/or using the biometric identifiers and/or biometric information of another individual for any purpose, without first providing notice and getting consent in writing. Biometrics are things like your fingerprint, faceprint, or a scan of your iris.
This lawsuit alleged that CSL Plasma violated BIPA by allegedly collecting biometric fingerprint data from Illinois plasma donors who scanned their fingers for identification before donating plasma at its Illinois plasma collection centers, without giving notice or getting consent. CSL Plasma denied these allegations and denied that it was subject to or violated BIPA.
The Court did not decide who is right or wrong. The Settlement has been granted final approval by a federal court in Chicago, Illinois.
Eligible class members who timely returned valid claim forms were sent settlement payments.
If you chose to receive your settlement payment by check, please cash your check by July 6, 2023 or it will be void.
If your address changed recently, send an email with your name, your old address and new address to info@PlasmaSettlement.com or call 877-586-2158 to speak to the settlement administrator.
To receive a settlement payment, you must be a Settlement Class Member and have completed and submitted a timely and valid Claim Form.
It is too late to submit a Claim Form now.
Eligible class members could select electronic payment or payment by check. If no payment election was made, eligible class members were sent checks in the mail to the address provided in their claim form.
If you elected to receive an electronic payment, and the electronic payment is unsuccessful for any reason, a check will be issued to your mailing address.
Checks will not be issued until the unclaimed funds are received back from the electronic payment processor. It will take more than a month to receive those funds back and issue checks.
